I have the old white one currently connected to my home network for MRV (Connected Home Adapter). Is there any reason to replace it with the black Cinema Connection kit? Why or why not?

Is there anything about the current setup that isn't performing the way you think it should be?

Did you mean DOD instead of MRV?

Not really. The only issue I have is that my new HR-44 isn't displaying YouTube or pandora.

I have a DECA wired broadband adapter I just bought, and I'm wondering if that would help.

Unless it's not functioning correctly, there's no reason to switch it out. New wireless ones may offer a cleaner install (if you are connecting to your home network). Unless it's aesthetics you're after then there's no advantage.

 

Tell us more about your setup and we can help you figure out what's going on. What receivers do you have and how are they connected? Can your HR44 download VOD and access TVapps?

I have an HR/24 and a HR 44. I also have a seperate coax line run to my router. This is where the old Ethernet adapter is set up. I'd like to add an Ethernet port coming off from the HR-24 since the feature is disabled. I am running Ethernet out from the HR 44. I'd rather not go wireless on the 44. The on demand and tv apps work on the 44.

This may be related to how new the Genie is.

If the Genie has wired access to your router, you can remove any CCKs and use the Genie's RJ45 connection instead.

My router isn't near the 44 so I cannot run an Ethernet line to it.

The RJ45 jack on the HR44 was intended for bringing Internet in, not serving as a DECA hub for all of your other devices that need an LAN connection.

It sounds like you might benefit from moving your modem and router/gateway to where it will serve the most devices.

That's what you had mentioned before. Some had also mentioned I should split the cable and run the ethernet out before entering the HR44.

I won't be able to move the router as my computer is upstairs. I was also planning on splitting the wire before the HR-24 for internet.

You can use the HR44's ethernet port to service other devices near it. It's not supported by DIRECTV but I've been doing this for my Blu-Ray player for a while with no problems.

 

If you're getting VOD and TVapps on the HR44, your network connection sounds fine. I would reboot the unit wait a few days and see if Pandora and YouTube show up on it before taking any further measures.

Thanks. So you don't recommend I change out the old white DECA for a CCK?

I am missing something here.  you have a DECA BB but the HR44 is connected by Ethernet as well?

The Genie is being used as a hub for some other equipment.

Or perhaps more accurate the TS is using the HR44's internal crossover bridge to connect other ethernet equipment to the internet by means of the DECA coax network.
