MRV bad playback after DCCK hook-up
Posted 11 November 2011 - 10:11 PM
So when I called D, they told me I had to order a Directv Cinema Connection Kit, which I did and I connected it today.
I was able to access Directv Cinema without a problem, but now when I try to view a program over MRV, it plays back very choppy. That is, it plays for a couple of seconds, then pauses, then continues. It is really unwatchable. I have tried and repeated this from different receivers and playing a program from different playlists.
Any idea why connecting the Directv Cinema Connection Kit would have such an effect on MRV playback?

Could you post a diagram of how and what is connected?

I'm guessing you are experiencing heavy network traffic on your computer network that is affecting the MRV.

I will work on getting a diagram up in a little bit.
I connected the DCCK up to one of my HR24s. I first wired it via ethernet to my router. But since I was having the MRV problems, I disconnected the DCCK from the router. With it just connected through the coax (not to internet at all) I still have the MRV playback problems.
I then activated the wireless setup on the DCCK, internet OK again, but still problems with MRV.
I am beginning to think it may be how the installers set up the coax distribution. I will take a better look at it and post a description later today.

Sorry the sketch is not very good.

You look to have a SWiM-16, with 2 outputs.
You might go to the HR24s and run a coax test from the front panel, by pressing the guide & > at the same time. [might take a few tries to get the menu]. Select coax, and list the results here.
Next run the PHY MESH test an post those too.

I will try the test and see what it shows.
