One of my older HR20s finally bit the dust, and DirecTV is sending me an HR44 and a C41 client to replace it with. I have 2 other HR receivers that will continue to be connected.
I installed an SWM-16 w/ the power injector & splitter no problem. I'll connect the 2 old receivers to the splitter and the HR44 will be the 2nd output on the SWM so 4 tuners on 1 output, and 5 on the other.
All HR receivers are hard wired into my network and talk to each other, along with the original Nomad.
What I don't know is how the client connects into the system. At the location I want to install the client, I have both coax and wired network connections. Does the client just connect to the splitter off of the SWM, and that's it? Do I need a DECA (I don't think I do)? Do the clients count as a tuner on the splitter or SWM?
thanks for the help.
