OK, I have 2 HR24-200s and 1 HR22-100

 

I have been unable to get internet access or connect to my home network via powerline adapters. (this used to work before my router died and I got a new router)

 

It has been suggested that I get the cinema connection kit (?) and sign up for whole home service

 

I am swm connected.

 

What exactly do I need to get whole home AND internet connected so I can use tv apps etc.

 

I have a home network using a netgear wnr2000n router

 

do i need an installer (and if I don't how much cost)

 

 

addendum: I have too many programs on my dvr's so I wouldn't want to replace them with genie or whatever.

To go the DIRECTV "approved" route, you'll get a DECA adapter for the HR22 and some manner of Cinema Connection Kit. It may also require a replacement splitter if the existing one isn't "green label".

I'm not sure you'll find a lot of popular support for what is left of the apps.

You will need to have it installed if you want warranty and "support" from DIRECTV.

Whole Home requires only that the receivers be reliably connected to each other.

The Internet stuff comes from the CCK. You get both with a DIRECTV installation.

You'll be able to circumvent having to use powerline by having Whole House installed, with one receiver hopefully near your router, where a DECA connection can be made, which will network the receivers and internet. As to cost, only DIRECTV can tell you that, as it varies depending on a number of factors.

My router is in my bedroom and is across the room from an hr24 receiver. I would only need the one cck, right? If this is a hard wire connection between this receiver and the router could prove difficult. The other receivers would connect wirelessly and I could connect to the internet for on demand  and streaming to an ipad? (which my wife wants to buy)

All receivers will need the coax, and the coax handles the networking both internal and external (meaning internet). So, yes, you'd need only one CCK, and with the whole home set up done professionally, you should have no problem.  It's wireless only to the extent that there are no extra wires for internet— the network goes through the coax.

 

The iPad connects wirelessly, truly wirelessly and is a separate issue. You can do some streaming to an iPad, but generally not live sporting events, unless you also purchase a GenieGo, and start the recording on the DVR and then stream it to the iPad.

There are about 80+ channels that can be streamed inside your network while using the DirecTV iPad app
Here’s to the crazy ones.

Thanks all for the info, it is really appreciated. I called directv and was able to ask precise questions because of your input. The installation would be $199, which is too much for me right now (Might've swung $100, but $200 is really iffy) If my situation improves or they have a promo, I will revisit the issue.  Thanks again.
