Hello everyone, here is my upgrade story that happened earlier today. Sorry this is a little long, but I feel like a kid on Christmas with all his new toys. Called last week to see about getting another HD-DVR added and WHDVR. Said they could come out today between 8-12. So today at about 815 the D* van pulls up, guy got out, came up to the door, showed me his D* ID badge, and introduced himself as David. Yes, it was Ironwood, but I got to say, this guy was sharp and knew his stuff. The dish is mounted in the back yard on the lower section of eves on the house. So, me knowing what I know, and from reading these threads, I pretty much had everything set up for the installer, including my Little Giant step ladder, yes, even a ladder, and yes he did use it! I also had all the cables ready to go too, HDMI, ethernet, and the cable coming into the house from the dish. He was very grateful that I had everything ready, and that he didn’t have to take his ladder off the van. Everything is set up in one central location, both DVR’s hooked up to the same TV, but the HR20 is also feeding other TV’s in the house using coax and component cables and controlled by RF. The new DVR is now the primary DVR for the LR. While up on the ladder, he took one look at my old 5LNBSL (non-SWM) and said, “I’m going to go ahead and replace the whole dish for you, this one has seen better days, and it feels loose”. I was like, “wow, really, no extra charge”? He was like, “nope, let me get one from the van”. So he comes back with a brand new SL3SWM dish. He also put two braces on for me, my other dish didn’t have them. He did not replace the J mounting arm, just the dish. The new SL3SWM’s are pretty cool, they have a quick disconnect latch type system for the LNB now, just slip in the LNB and flip the latch, its locked in, no more screws. Ok, let me get to the point, here is what I got installed today: New SL3SWM dish One 4 way splitter One SWMLNB power adapter. This is a new one, this one only has one coax input, so you must use the red power pass through on the splitters now. One ethernet connection kit, the new black box one. Pretty cool, its small, about the size of a deck of cards. One DECA for my existing HR20-700 And last but not least, and brand new HR24-200! SWEET! So now I have two HD-DVRs, where before for the last 3 years I only had one receiver in the whole house. But I’ve got say, this WHDVR/MRV/SWM/DECA technology is very cool! First, having a single cable come from the dish makes things so much easier and faster for the installers, especially if there is already coax cable installed in the house, just a matter of getting the cable to the junction box. Second, having both DVRs being able to talk to each other over existing coax, and having a “master list” of all of your recorded shows in one place, makes things so much easier. No more switching inputs between DVRs anymore. (see my signature for my other 2 DVRs) So yes, I had a good experience with Ironwood, happy with everything. The installer knew what he was doing, of course, I helped when I could, but tried to stay out his way (thanks VOS ). Again, I had everything set up, but once he left, I rearranged some things. He was here from about 815 to almost 10. Also wanted to say thanks to everyone who answered all my questions about the upgrade. There are too many user names to list here, but one in particular, VOS, he knows his stuff. And yes VOS, I did tip him, and I also gave him a bottled water while he was working outside. Also attached some picture of the new SWM-LNB power adapter, broadband adapter, and dish mount. Thanks for reading. I’m finally a WHDVR member.
