Family member had a DirecTV Whole House upgrade today. DTV installed SWM-16, Deca adapter and 1-HR34 and 2-C31 Clients. All are ok but C-31 Client on longest run (existing RG6 approx. 75' from SWM-16 ) not getting signal, according to DTV installer. Using the existing HR21-200 on the 75' run signal is fine. DTV installed deca adapter and left the HR21 there. Is that okay or should DIRECTV swap for a H25 unit? Is 75ft too far for Genie Clients?
As a continuation on C-31 "No Signal" I posted about earlier, here's more info.
Family member's house was built in '95, electrician ran 1- RG6 to each room. I assisted with DirecTV self-installed, one 40ft run was about 20ft short of the switch posistion. To make up the difference, another piece of RG-6 was added via a barrel connector. Connection was wrapped with vinyl tape. All was ok with single RG-6 until Whole Home upgrade was done. C-31 client was getting a "No Signal" message. HR21-200 works fine with single RG-6, but with Deca adapter (wireless) hooked up to Sat 1 and Ethernet 1 cannot record 2- channels at once. Is the barrel connector the culprit? Any other options to fix this (other then working thru unfinished attic and snaking thru finished walls)
