Am I first???
But that's OK.....see the other " I'm Ready" thread...
Mine came in around 8:30
Mine came 20 mins ago.
well crud... :lol:
Mine got here a little after 10. The FedEx driver knocking actually woke me up. :lol:
He woke my wife, 2 kids, and the dog up this morning while I was at work.:lol:
She called me and was
Hah, too funny!
Mine was waiting for me when I got to work this morning...
However, today is a LATE work day for me, and I'm very sick (some sort of flu, I guess, but it feels more like the "plague"... so it may be Thursday before I feel well enough to hook it up. Hopefully, I'll feel better tomorrow, and will feel better enough to do it, but I'm not very hopeful.
Package arrived yesterday but I was out of town. Picked it up from my neighbor this afternoon, and am now up and running. Installation was straightforward. Had to reset HR20-700 after breaking SWM connection to put everything after single splitter and the filter device, even though the HR20 itself is not part of DECA network.
None of the other receivers needed to be reset. Went into advanced network setup and without making any changes selected the "Connect Now" option and it went through and validated both LAN and WAN connection. Repated procedure on all units I installed DECA on.
A quick check of MRV seems to be working.
Satellite signal readings appear to be identical before and after installation.
That's as far as I've gotten.
"Plague" be danged... I went ahead and hooked up my HR20-700 and HR23-700. I'm getting some more splitters tomorrow which will allow me to hook up the H21... which I'll do sometime this weekend.
Unfortunately, I get an error message whenever I try to use MRV (which I'm assuming might be because my HR20-700 is two or three CE cycles behind), but hopefully that won't be an issue come Friday night.
I took notes today, and by Friday, I'll try and post some of them when I'm feeling better...
