    I have searched this forum and cannot seem to find a definitive answer, so I apologize in advance if this has been asked and answered.

    Are both ethernet ports on my HR22-100 active? Is it possible to daisy chain it to a co-located HR20-100 using one port and use the other port with a wireless N switch to connect to other DVR's located in another room?

    Yes they are. IIRC the bottom port is a pass through.

    They are both active, but it's not the true hardware pass-thru that you would get on a switch. It's software controlled and may slow down your receiver as well as other "strange" occurences. You can try it, but I'd recommend a switch...
