    Updated the drawing, didn't want to cause any heart attacks because it looked like I had or was going to wire the PIs backward.

    I have a DECA adapter on my HR21-700, but the HR22-100 is still wired. Curious to compare performance and such.

    Living Room - HR21-700:
    -HR21-700 connected with HDMI, Phone Line, and Network via DECA

    -Marantz SR5002 A/V Receiver (handles video switching too)
    -Phillips TSU9200 Remote w/Extender
    -Hava Platinum HD (like a slingbox)

    (Theater has a Xbox with XBMC for media and Living Room has an Oppo DVD Player and WD TV Live for Media)

    Bedroom 1 - H24-100:
    -42" Panasonic S1 1080p Plasma
    -H24 - Field Trial connected with HDMI and DECA

    I really have no idea yet how I will be handling the internet connections, as right now I have only the two receivers and no DECA hardware... but ...

    I have two SWM8 running in parallel, with one SWM8 dedicated to the HR24/H24 CE Field Trial. All other receivers are on the other SWM8, with two rarely-used receivers moved to legacy ports on that SWM8 simply so they continue to receive guide data.

    More to follow?

    Drew you should be getting a DECA, filter, and PI to insert the internet into the SWM setup.

    The HR20-700 has Tuner 2 disabled so only 8 tuners exist in the SWM setup.

    Didn't know we were instructed to do this... I missed that. Is this required/helpful info for DirecTV?

    Not instructed to post the setup in this thread, but we were instructed to setup in certain setups per Group 1, 2, and 3. This thread is optional but it is a great way to reference your setup when writing issues and sharing your setup between us and Directv.
