Whole Home DVR Installation with Two Dish Setup
Posted 08 October 2012 - 01:04 PM
My DirecTV Whole House Install is scheduled for Wednesday. Will we be able to get all four HD DVRs on the same network, or will the primary DVR be disconnected as it draws its signal from a different dish?

Is the HR21 also connected through DECA?
My ethernet connection was made directly to an HR21. It then supplied internet connectivity to the rest of the system. Unfortunately, I'm having the same problem as many others on this forum in that the HR 34 keeps dropping out of the whole-house network system. That will give me something to do this weekend.
Using the HR21 as a bridge for internet to DECA isn't a good idea.
Using the HR34 is.

So it sounds like you're using both ethernet ports on the HR21, which is a bad idea.
Yes, the HR 21 is also connected through DECA.
