I have an HR24-200 and I have to replace an HR22-100 (bad HDD) and am interested in MRV. I have internet connected to the HR24-200 via ethernet and am replacing the HR22-100 with a new HR24-xxx. I have 2 HD TVs to use in this setup and a 5LNB Slimline dish (4 coaxial outputs).
I believe I need:
1. 8 channel single wire multi-switch (w/ one or more RG-6 runs from the dish LNB to the SWM);
2. single RG-6 coax run between each HR24 and the SWM;
3. 1x4 SWM splitter;
4. DECA Broadband Router Package (to connect internet to the system)
Is this hookup correct?
(if I wanted to not hookup the internet to this system at this point, I could just leave out the DECA broadband package and keep my ethernet connection plugged into my one HR24 to use DoD to the one IRD.)
Extra question - I have an AM21 (ATSC tuner) connected to my current HR24-200. With the above setup, would I be able to also view OTA channels on the 2nd HR24 through this setup?
