    Hello all,

    In my family room I have a DTV 4K C61K-700 and wireless video bridge connected to my TV. In my basement I have the HR54-200 connected to the TV.

    I am having issues w the C61 and really don't watch too much 4K and we hardly ever watch the TV in the basement, so I will probably end up removing a DTV receiver down there totally and just stream TV or something.

    Can I simply disconnect the C61 in the family room, take the HR54 and bring it upstairs and connect it just like the C61 is?

    I also have a few wireless receivers in the house on non 4K TV's if that matters in this equation.

    Do I need to call DTV for anything for this "swap" other than have them remove the C61 from my account?
    How do I "ship" back the C61?

    Thanks a lot!

    swap as you wish;
    just be sure a coax cable from HR54 location must be connected to red DC-pass splitter's port;
    when you'll call CSR and remove one client from your account, they will send a box to your home for return

    There may be a power inserter already on the power passing port negating the need to have the HR54 on the port.

    Ignonre the post above almost completely. You need to know how your system is hooked up before you go moving stuff. If you don't know how its hooked up don't move anything. The system will be connected via a spliter and the line from the 54 is hooked into the splitter a certain way. If its not hooked that way it will knock everything out.
