So I've tried everything I can think of and have read from earlier whole home DVR discussions, but figured I would pick your brains. I recently moved one H25-500 receiver from the kitchen into the living room on the same floor. I receive satellite signal and can watch live TV, but cannot seem to get connected to the H24 DVR in the basement. The H25 connected fine in the kitchen, but doesn't ever seem to be able to connect to the DVR in its new location.
When I go into the status menus, I see Coax: Connected, and Internet: Not Connected (13). I have tried restarting all components (including my Verizon FiOS router, Cisco wireless router, DirecTV SWM power inserter, DECA, H24, H25s, etc.) to no avail, following instructions provided by VOS in earlier threads.
Any suggestions? Everything works on the unit but connectivity to the DVR.
This looks like a puzzle.
The H25 shows it's coax connected, but no internet or MRV.
I wonder what it is connecting to.
To find out, press the guide and right arrow on the front panel. This should bring up a menu with coax on the left. It may take a few tries to get the menu, where you'll select coax.
Check the list of nodes shown and the loss indicated to each.
Compare this to the same test on your HR24.
Maybe post what each show here and use the last four of each MAC address so they can be compared.
"My first guess", is the H25 is connecting to another receiver, but the coax has too much loss to connect to the DVR and the DECA for internet.
