I have a question about my setup. I have 3 HR24s installed on a deca network and a swm odu power inserter. The deca adapter is in one room with a HR24 along with my DSL modem. The power inserter is in another room with another HR24. I wanted to move my DSL modem to another room so I could plug in some of my wireless devices directly to it. I thought I could just switch the network adapter and the power inserter and it would work but when I did that I got a receiver could not communicate with dish error code 775. I moved them back to there normal location and everything worked fine. Does anybody know what I could have did wrong and what I need to do to get this to work. Thanks in advance.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Would the power passing port that the PI has to be connected to on the outside splitter? Thanks for your quick reply.
If that "outside" splitter is the only one in the path between the PI and the dish ODU, yes

Would the connection outside be marked different or would I just have to follow the cable from the PI? Sorry about the outside splitter description but there is a splitter to the one HR24 where the DECA adapter is located. Once again, thanks for the quick reply.
Yes it will have a red line pointing to it indicating the power passing port. And if you disconnect the cable to that port it will have a red colored insert as opposed to all the other splitter ports.

Thanks for all your help. I found the red port on my splitter. So just to be sure, whichever cable run has the PI in it, has to be connected to the red port of the splitter. You guys are the best to help.
Yes, any time the PI is located somewhere after the SWiM splitter(s) it must be connected to the coax runs on the DC power passing port(s) in order to reach all the way back up to the SWiM LNB on the dish ODU arm, since all the other ports on the splitter block DC power.
