BBC:

DECA installed on a SWiM system:


Considering he OP says he has a WB68, I'm guessing he has BBC's, but he needs to have two cables to the DVRs.

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

OK, my bad. I just worked the receiver out and you are right, there is two cables on both. Now I am even more confused. I just checked and only three rooms have the dual coax boxes. I just had the basement done and it has a single coax coming from the WB68. What will I need to do to get a new HR34 working? I'm guessing it has something to do with the SWiM which I have no idea about.

Again, I'm sorry for the confusion I have caused.

Probably best to call DirecTV to get a SWM upgrade and professional installation for your HR34. You cannot use the HR34 on your current setup. And its five tuners will require the addition of a SWM16 switch to your current equipment. DirecTV's installation fee will cost you less than buying all of the required equipment yourself.

I'd say litzdog911 has a good idea for you.

Don't worry about it. As mentioned, that's why we're here. I'd say that you would want DirecTV to do the install for you. When I upgraded to a SWM16, I paid $50 for the install. The SWM16 itself is about $250.

So, any luck with swapping the CCK out?

No. I have to wait for the kids to come over to help move the wall unit out to get to everything.

I appreciate everyone's help on this. I think at this point I'll be calling DTV and discussing a professional install.

My guess is that if you upgrade to Whole Home and a HR34, your connection problems will be solved. Working off of DECA makes things much easier to support and trouble-shoot.

Is the WLAN light solid on the wireless adapter?

If not, there's another way to setup the wireless adapter.

*Press menu on the remote
*Go to Settings & Help
*Go to Settings
*Go to Network Setup
*Go to Advanced Setup
It will take a few moments for this to populate
*Go to Setup Wireless
If Setup Wireless doesn't display, restore defaults and try again.
