It isn't clear to me that the HR34 will bridge Ethernet + Coax/DECA?
I've got a SWM8 converted setup when I had whole home done when that first came out prior to the HR34's
HR20 -> Replacing with an HR34
This above box has a DECA adapter attached where the ethernet on the DECA goes to my network switch and one of the other network switch ports goes to the HR20
HR22 -> Replacing with a C31
One of our least used boxes, was just using it for recording more shows. This box DID require a DECA adapter to break out the COAX/DECA to the ethernet port. (Just Coax to DECA adapter to the HR22)
H24 -> Keeping as H24
Don't need ability to record shows on this, just playback recorded shows and do live TV. This box didn't need a DECA Adapter to have home network/internet
D10 -> Replacing with a C31
Also very rarely used box
Some questions related to this
Should the HR34 bridge the network from COAX/DECA for the other boxes to my home network? Any gotcha's side effects/etc? If any issues here should I just take the DECA spare adapters I have and where I have the SWM8/16 installed just take a channel there and move the ethernet insertion there with the DECA adapter?
This setup change keeps us at 6 SWM channels; from what I've heard the tech will still replace with a SWM16?
I've got an install tomorrow AM ; anyone have anything they want to know on current installs, what the tech brought/was prepared for, etc, let me know.
