Is there any official guidance as to how DirecTV wants it setup up or are we to determine that ourselves. Preliminarily, I’ve decided to use a switch to connect the two receivers in the living room (leaving the one in the bedroom hardwired). I'll connect one first directly (to test it out) and then both via the switch. If that works out I’ll add the Blu-Ray and my TV to the switch. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be going with a Linksys gigabit switch. What are you gonna do? Mike Edit: I will start out with my HR21-100. If that works out I'll add my HR23-700 via a switch.
