    All,

    Just wanted to report back, *and* let VOS know that he was correct. they did bring out a SD DVR, to replace my old TIVO, The let me upgrade it to HR24 for $99. 3 DECA's later, and I am connected.

    Funny part is that the new HR24 shows MRV authorized, but the existing HR20 and HR22 still show as NOT authorized. What do I have to do to get them activated?

    Log into directv.com and activate MRV, if you haven't already. Then refresh services.

    TECH was here and did the DECA install. MRV is activated on the new DVR, just not the old ones. I already did logon to DTV and refreshed services.

    I should add that I was previously beta testing MRV on my own network.

    What does it say under "Whole-Home DVR Service" in the "My Services" tab when you log into directv.com?

    Guess I just needed to be patient. other 2 DVR's now show as authorized. Starting to play now!

    I am confused. Does DECA run over my existing lines from my multi switch OR is the MRV coax line separate? That means I would have to run additional coax.

    DECA runs over the coax, but can't work on a "multi-switch" system and so must be on a SWiM system.
