Does anyone know which way you get the most speed into your Whole-Home network on Internet connectivity?  By that I mean which is better, by connecting my router directly into the RJ-45 Internet connection on the back of my HR34 Genie server which then provides Internet connectivity to all the other DVRs in my Whole-Home setup (I only have DVRs (4 including the Genie)) or by connecting my router directly into the central Cinema Connection Kit that also gives Internet connectivity to all the DVRs in my Whole-Home setup?

 

I have read that it hoses everything up if you connect it both ways and nothing will work so you have to use one or the other so I'd like to hear if anyone has tested both ways and knows for sure if one way is better than the other to gain better speed for immediate watching of a movie, etc. without having to wait for it to first download.  Right now I have it connected directly to the Genie but also own the little Cinema Connection Kit should that be the faster way to connect it.

 

Thank you in advance.

Either way should work fine. Do whichever is easier for you and you are correct, don't do both.

Should be no difference in performance, either way.

No difference (or at least there shouldn't be) just don't try to connect both simultaneously.

If you are just referring to the internet connectivity piece for VOD, it really shouldnt make a difference....if you are actually talking about MRV performance, isolating your home network traffic from the Directv video traffic should yield better performance for your home network and possibly better MRV(whole home viewing)since the video traffic would all be on the DECA network if you have it done by the book.

Yes two connections to your home LAN does not speed things up.

 

There is no difference in performance with either a Genie or a wired CCK connection.
