After cruising through the forums here and especially using a lot of VeryOldSchool's advice in this thread: DirecTV coax whole home network not working - DIRECTV Connected Home - DBSTalk i feel I am close to a solution, yet the situation is not resolved. Hopefully you guys can assist and wave me on to home plate.
Here's where I'm at:
My main receiver is a HR24/200 HD-DVR. It is connected to wifi through a directv branded wireless router. That part works. I have a 10.0.x.x IP address under settings and it says Whole Home is authorized yet "No networked DVRs found". It does says "coax connected" however. Playlist is set to share all rooms.
I have 2 HR25/500, one of which is not connected to a tv at the moment (if that even matters). The connected HR25 has a 169.254.x.x IP with "coax not connected". It also says that whole home is authorized and "No networked DVRs found". This receiever goes into a Gen2 DECA and has a ethernet cable dangling out of it but it is not connected to anything else.
Prior to this post I have reset both receivers to default network settings and restarted them multiple times.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
