that is good news because you can connect an DECA BB adapter using a 2 way SWM splitter to the coax feeding the SD receiver.
Thanks...I feel like I'm making progress here. What you describe I believe is what the installer was trying to explain to me. I'm sorta confused on the difference between our normal wifi (as we discussed and know before) and what we all know as the Genie network and the way it handles the recorded programs and such. i really want to be able to record a show and watch another in the bedroom. Something I've never been able to do since the receiver only has one line in (long story there) It sounds like what all of you have been trying to explain to me, is that's where the DECA thingy comes in...?
As far as the wifi, i was able to bring back my Belkin gaming Adapters from the dead. They're about 5 years old and I think they had a reset issues when i first plugged in my RE1000. When i tried to reconfigure them on this Vista machine, the disc said no. Thankfully I have a standyby XP machine that filled in. I've already put one of the Belkins back on the HR21-100 in the bedroom and was able to pull pics and music from the external hardrive as before. Nice. One thing that does sorta concern me is that my router (Linksys E3000) has 4 ports and they are all currently being used. If necessary I could pull free one up. Yeah...I'm a weather nut and do a lot of data feed to weather networks (another story)
I may give Directv a call back tomorrow and ask that I put everything back on the burner, Genie/Mini and NFL ST. Maybe I'll luck out and get a installer who is Ok with my current dish othern than the LNB. What types of questions do you suggest I ask the follow-on installer? What about Ms. Utility? I heard you have to call on a workday (Monday) and it takes 2-3 days for someone to come out...?
