    I think you may have found the answer there. The power supply is connected at the H24, not the HR20. I think when he moves the power supply downstairs, the problem may be resolved. Hope so, anyway!

    I thought the issue, or at least the theory behind the cause of the issue with the HR20-100s having occasional MRV incompatibilities was the special hook-up still results in an abnormal situation of having the satellite SWM signal applied to both sat. inputs on the receiver at the same time.

    This apparently creates some kind mixing of two SWM signals internally to which some HR20-100s are more sensitive than others and affects their proper operation.

    I'm still a bit lost as to what this "power supply" is. Do you mean a "power inserter" (or "PI") to power a SWiMLNB?

    If so it should be positioned at some point inline with coax run which attaches to the red DC power passing port on the SWM splitter or inline somewhere between the run between SWiMLNB and the input to the SWM splitter.

    The port on the PI toward the receiver needs to be terminated if the line is not used by a receiver or the BB DECA dongle.

    PI, not supply. Sorry for the confusion. I hope moving the PI will take care of it. I would do it myself, but since he's gotta come back tonight, I'm gonna wait and let him do it.

    If this is a kind of large black box, then this is for the SWiM and has nothing to do with the DECA/coax networking.
    While this one is connected to the DECA, it is the same one/type used to power the SWiM:
