I have an owned but deactivated HR22 sitting in storage. My friend in California is thinking of buying it to add to his setup. He has 1 HD DVR, 1 HD receiver, and 2 SD receivers. His MRV setup is a DECA setup.

My MRV setup is not DECA; mine are all connected via ethernet. Therefore, I'm not familiar with how he'd go about connecting my HR22 to his setup if I sold him it. I guess a couple questions are:


  • If he adds the HR22 to his setup, how would he connect it to his DECA setup?
  • On which of his current four receivers would he be able to view recordings made on the HR22?
  • Would he be able to view recordings from his current, sole HD DVR on the HR22 I sell him?

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

The receivers without an internal DECA all simply use the white DECA adapter, which connects to the SAT 1 input for power and the ethernet port for networking.
This has to be a SWiM system, but he already has one.
All receivers on the same account, with networking will share/see recordings and play them. His SD receivers don't have networking options.

OK, I think I got it. Thanks.

He will need to get a new access card from DirecTV (about $20). If you currently have recordings on the unit you send him, I don't know if they would be available to him once the unit is activated on his account (suspect not).
