First and foremost, my intentions are to get rid of the ever inconsisent wireless connections in a new home theater package that I'm putting together. This will include Panasonic plasma TV, Denon AVR, Panasonic Blu-ray, XBOX360, and my trusty HR24-200 box. It isn't overly easy to get ethernet over to this area, so I started investigating DECA to make this work.
Here are a few threads that got me pretty close to my answer, but I would still like some clarification:
*Apparently, I can't post URLs until after 5 posts, so sorry they are just dummy links.....
One post in one of these threads is a step-by-step on what I need to do, and it is:
This doesn't work with the 24s, since their DECA is internal and they don't power a DECA if one is connected to them.
Coax from wall to splitter > (a) to DECA [with PI for power], ( to HR24.
DECA (ethernet output] to switch or straight to PS3.
Here is where my question comes in. I do NOT use MRV and don't have a desire to upgrade to MRV. But I do want my HR24 to still be able to connect for "On Demand" and "Directv Cinema".
Will the DECA that is now in this loop work? Or, when I put a switch after the DECA Ethernet Output, do I need to connect the ethernet port on the HR24 to this switch?
Thanks in advance.
