My dad has 7 directv boxes in the house.
He just replaced a HR23 with HR34, The CCK is in the basement by the router. SO that will likely stay in place to feed the on demand.
We are currenty using the DECAs on two directv boxes upstairs and downstairs to feed each to a switch to supply ethernet for bluray, receiver and xbmc clients.
Can i still tecnically use a deca with the HR34 externally in this scenario, since we are using the decas as poor man's ethernet. ??
Chain ------->>>Router========>>> Broadband CCK=======>DECA=====10/100 5 port switch====1=DECA, 2=bluray, 3=atv3, 4=xbmc client, 5=Directv Ethernet Port
We do not want to do wireless bridge
We would prefer not to spend more money for ethernet over powerline adapters.
Other than the connection being dirty, can anyone in the know say with confidence that this WILL NOT work.
We just don't want to loose the ethernet we had.
Honestly I was shocked that directv is sending the unit and thin client out without home install requirement.
I know when i installed mine, the installer had to be corrected more than once about overloading channels on the SWM16.
Dad, has an SWM16 as well, and I told him we would perhaps have to juggle the channels around since he has the following:
three single tuner boxes. office1, office2, guest
I would greatly appreciate the help since I cannot make the 6 hour drive to help him out this time. I wish he had a toner too but will have to do it the old fashioned way i suppose with onscreen signal strength
