I can't get these things to connect to my home network!!! I've read the boards and tried the suggestions and, nothing. My HR24 in my living room has been connected to my network since the install. I loaded Directv2pc on my computer and was able to see the DVR (even though the content wouldn't play b/c my monitor doesn't support HDCP, who knew?). I have two PS3's that show Directv2pc in the home menu. I'm using an older router (Linksys WRT54G) but is pretty much an old faithful as far as routers go. The H24's are wired (not wireless) and I do have MRV activated. I have switched ethernet cables, they are brand new. I have tried to manually assign the network settings to no avail. The error screen says the H24 "sees" my network but no internet. I get the IP starting with "169" (or whatever number) that someone mentioned in another thread suggesting the H24 does not recognize the router. I consider myself fairly tech savy and can troubleshoot a lot on my home network. All of my other devices are connected on my network with no problems, but not these things. My frustration is at an all time high with this problem, the handshake issue with the H24 and my Sony LCD and the recent rain fade experience. Help before I cancel :flaiming. P.S. I think the error code was 71-73-113 but I'm not sure. It was yesterday and I'm at work now. Also, I did read on the board (but searched and can't find it again) where it was stated the receivers come setup with DECA by default and if you go wired, you have to disable that. Can someone please clarify?
