Ok... First the equipment..

SWiM 8
Slim5 LNB
4-way splitter (Green)
HR21-700 (NOT ON DECA)
R22 (With HD)
H24-200
BB DECA

I have the PI going directly into the SWiM8 and the BB DECA going into an open port on the 4-way splitter. The DECA works on the R22 (All lights are on on the adapter and the system test says Connected) but on the H24, I have ZERO lights. I swapped the adapters ( the one that was on the R22 that worked) and still not lights on the H24... I have reset the H24 multiple times but still no joy... Any suggestions??

H24's don't need DECA's. They come built in from China.

Take it off, reboot, try again.

And the HR21 should have a DECA... Move the one on the H24 over to the HR21. If the HR21 is not going to be hooked up for the purposes of MRV, etc. you then need to add a Band Stop Filter (BSF) if you are not going to have the DECA installed for it.

Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

Sweet! That worked! Does the R22 need the DECA?

Yes, if you want it connected to the rest of your receivers you need that or an ethernet connection.

And once again, without the DECA (if you go that route), you would need a BSF.

One other thing and I PROMISE I will leave you guys alone (for a little while)... I have 2 receivers connected to the Legacy ports on the SWiM8... Those do NOT need BSF's because they are on the Legacy side and the DECA does not go through those ports correct?
