Looking to upgrade from HR24-500 to Genie - CCK question

Hello all! I currently have an HR24-500 that sits in my main TV room. It's got a SWIM ODU attached, and the Ethernet port is blocked with a plastic filler.


I have a D12 sitting in the basement with a DECA attached to my Wireless CCK. The TV/Box downstairs is NEVER used other than providing a coax loop for the CCK.


I believe I had to go this route due to having the SWIM connected to the HR24, and not being able to use the Ethernet jack.


I plan on upgrading to the Genie, and will be keeping Cinemea, Whole Home DVR, and moving to the Wireless Genie Mini and Genie Go.


Will I be able to shutdown the D12 in the basement and run the CCK, etc from the Genie in the main room?

and you should not need the CCK. You can plug the Ethernet cable directly into the Genie and it does not disable the DECCA.

Not to mention you don't even need a d12 to make the cck work. That just seems odd.

Thanks to you both!


Jimmie - Unfortunately, I don't have ethernet nearby, so I have to do wireless. Can the Genie do wireless natively?


Inkahauts - It's been a while since I set this up, and I worked with some folks here on getting it setup. I honestly can't remember why I had to do it this way, but I believe it was to get my WH DVR working.


I believe the main issue was a connection point for the CCK coax. The HR24 has a large SWIM ODU attached, and it may have not been an option to introduce the CCK into that loop at the time.


I would ultimately like to drop to having a Genie in the main room, and a Genie Mini Wireless upstairs (where I currently have an HR25), and add Genie Go. The basement TV and box can go away.

Yes, however if you have a coax (spare) near your router you can use a BroadBand DECA to bridge your internet in a wired fashion
