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?
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.
