    No you won't be able to do that. The HR23 doesn't even have DECA built in. In order to get internet/MRV ability upstairs you will have to have a DECA install, with a DECA adapter near your internet router connected to it, and another DECA adapter at your HR23 connected to it. If you want to hook up a computer/PS3 to the internet upstairs you could theoretically hook an ethernet switch up to a DECA adapter upstairs and get online that way. It is not advised to try to use the second ethernet port on the HR23 for anything.

    A few of us think that all new HD installs will probably start to be done with SWM and Hx24 models as soon as inventory can keep up. The older H2x and HR2x models will continue to be used for existing customer upgrades and replacment units for defective receivers.

    I emailed them and asked if I ordered today when would I get a unit, and here is the reply:

    Hello,
    After reviewing the email, I would like to inform you that we do have a lot on order and I am showing that we should have some in by next week. Right now we have customers order first come first serve. So if you are interested in purchasing this today you would probably see this sometime next week or the following week. DirecTV has not given us an answer on how many they have shipped to us.

    I'm assuming if my card got charged already then I'd get mine sooner rather than later?

    Just received an email from Solid Signal that says they anticipate arrival of the HR24s tomorrow (5/13) and will ship mine (ordered last week) tomorrow or Thursday, depending on what time the shipment arrives.

    If you got charged already, that usually means that they are in the shipping stages.

    I pre-ordered an h24 on April 23rd and my status still shows In-process. My card was also charged on that date so hopefully I'll be receiving one of the early shipments.

    I think SolidSignal charges the card on the day of the order, they don't wait until the order ships like most companies.

    I'm upgrading my bedroom receiver to the H24 from an owned RCA SD unit. I currently have an HR20 in my LR, so I already pay for the HD package. When I call to activate, would D* possibly give me a credit towards the $99 I paid for the new receiver?

    Can the CSR activate the new receiver or will I need to ask for the card activation department?

    Why would they give you a credit?

    Check your account online to see if you qualify for any promotions, if so, then you may get a credit.

    I got lucky once and they Activated my DVR with the Old Access Card but now they won't do it because you may have old billable info on that access card and they prefer to issue you a new one and that will take about 3 to 4 days for you to get it once you have requested it via phonecall.

    I doubt you will get a credit at this time but it is always worth a try.

    ok thanks for the reply. i didnt mean to deviate from the main thread topic,
    but basically I would have an ethernet switch connected to a DECA adapter,
    and the HR23 would connect to the switch for its network connectivity.
    If you can put a switch in between the box and the DEC adapter, then I guess I can get what I need.

    I think the time to ask that question (equipment credit) of DirecTV is before you place an order with someone else.
