Had another post here about my old hr 24 giving me issues but the box appears to work as when connected downstairs it worked. This got me thinking. I noticed I did not have the hr 34 wired to the internet directly through Ethernet. Upstairs I have the cinema connection kit. I was wondering if I connect the hr 34 which is downstairs directly to router can I get rid of the connection kit on the hr 24 upstairs. Will the hr 24 see the hr 34. I have whole home dvr now and I assume the connection kit is there for that reason. Would make hookup easier and save some space.
