Does that A/V out that looks somewhat like an svideo output mean it will hook up to sd TV's?
No, that won't work since the HR34 will only allow you to activate one C31 if that's all DIRECTV has activated on your account.
I've got a C31 and a HR24-100 connected to 73" Mits DLP and can't any PQ difference between the two.
From what Shadow (Stuart Sweet) is saying, in order to register an RVU client for use, you'll have to pay the $6 monthly fee for that client; whether you use it or not.
It will be interesting to see how they go about adding and removing clients from a billing perspective (and whether there is a fee for same).
You "simply" add an RVU client.
Their system doesn't know/ask/care what this client is. Could be an RVU TV, or a C31, @ $6/month.
Sorry that would not work. The clients have would both have to be authorized and you would get charged for both.
I'm disappointed in the lack of an Ethernet port. That limits its usefulness.
How? It only works with an HR34, and the HR34 is SWiM only. How much of a stretch is it to add deca?
Add what DECA?
The 34 & 31 both have them internally.
I have gigabit fiber ran to every building, but I don't for coax. I actually wish coax would die.
Ethernet is much more flexible than coax. I can use fiber, shielded twisted pair or microwave to transport to the device, depending on what the situation calls for.
So plug a BB DECA into the C31 and connect it to your Gig network.
When that whole 'situation' takes a big dump, it'll be because "it's a crappy box". :lol:
Can I plug the C31 directly into the BB DECA?
Got to agree with you on that one. Never could DECA to work on my SWiM system. It kept knocking out my second tuner and I had no home network. Tech couldn't get it to work right and after two tries I took out the DECA adapter and went back to my Cat 6 wiring. Both tuners worked and I had my internet and home network back.
It would be nice to keep this thread on-track. There are other DECA Vs. Ethernet threads...
I think he was referring to what happens when you turn on a c31 and there are already three streams going out of your HR34, so the c31 has no ability to even try and grab a tuner because there are no "access points" available. Well I can tell you this is the screen you get when that happens...
I had two streams going out of my hr34 for Whole Home Service to regular hr2xs and one stream going out for a c31. When I turned on my second c31 I got this screen.
Yes, I have tried it and it works. Just remember, it's completely unsupported by DIRECTV though.
Okay so several of you have the C31 already. How much did you pay to get it? I think it would be better to have this than the H25, although I do like my H25.
