You realize he said in the second sentence that his hr24 had a cck and a deca right ?

Let's read it again:

One of the HR 24 has the CCK connected to it as well as the DECA (?). On that particular DVR (HR24), I can see all the programs recorded on the other 2 DVRs.

This DVR has a working DECA, or it wouldn't see the recordings on the other DVRs

So I see no errors and misconceptions ..

Let's reread what you posted:

It's like a broadband deca , hooked to a reciever deca , hooked to another receiver deca, hooked to a receiver

This is where I questioned how you could daisychained.
I can't see how one coax would connect all of these.
Maybe you're meaning one thing, but not typing what you mean.
I'm not a mind reader, so I read what is typed and go from there.

Have you ever been in the service class on day 3 talking about rf ?

I am quite capable of teaching both the class and the trainer, and might do a better job at it too.
My work here on the forum, speaks for itself.

You see the "it's like " not .. Actually hooked up this way right ?

Better with ASCII art ?

Wall ---> Internet hardware deca --- > receiver deca ---- > Internal deca ---- > ird

Vs the correct mrv

Wall ---> Internet hardware deca--> internal deca ---> ird

I know his mrv is working .. But if in fact there is an unpowered reciever deca inline it will cause issues ... There is actually a removed reciever deca resolution lol

What I was taking about with the URT is the techs don't care about how the RF is affecting the system but how to diagnose and fix the problem .. Similar situation , he has an issue .. Wants to know the basis of the issue and how to fix it , not the frequency range that is likely being affected ., enough said lets move on. ..

We have a different approach.
I was taught [or had to learn] "why" things work.
DirecTV's training is more along the lines of "follow our list" of things to do.
Sometimes their list is wrong, and I've been able to get it corrected.

Knowing how and why something works make troubleshooting much better.

I wouldn't say that .. There is no list , just guidelines , no two systems are exactly the same, We weigh sin , and risk. If I come to your house and its not to our standards I bring it to code , if I can't , I note it and if the customer is a do it yourselfer and makes demands, I rarely do the job. Because the vast majority just want their system to work as designed . This guy .. He just wants his mrv to work right .. His system just needs to be brought to code .... He's not asking to use some unsupported configuration so if the system is just looked over for things like reciever decas where there shouldn't be one , it might just fix his problem .. He doesn't need a lesson on triplexes diplexers band stop and b band .

Amen to that brutha!!! I can't tell you how many times I've banged my head on a wall trying to explain how I came up with the "real" solution after the so called "experts" wasted countless hours chasing their tails like mindless puppy dogs!
