    With this being the case, you can connect it to the H25 and skip the wireless connection and hardwire it through the ethernet jack shown here:

    Thanks for the connectivity info. We are contemplating moving from Comcast to DirectTV and one of my concerns was how the HR34/Client would be accomplished.

    Our current system uses a 3 (+1) tuner 2TB Moxi/Mate setup and I cringe at the thought of an installer creating a snakes nest of cabling or butchering up my house, when I've already hard-wired cat6 throughout the house.

    Interestingly, neither the DirectTV chat line nor their CS department would/could provide any information of the magic needed for the two devices to talk (quote: "they use a 'wire' between them").

    :welcome_s to DBSTalk!

    While not very technical, the answer you got was correct. The DirecTV system relies on coax home runs from the main splitter to all receivers. The receivers communicate with each other via the coax network between them.
