    Recieved the new DECA for the HR20-100 this AM. Installed the same way as HR20-700 DECA as Doug described in his PM. The DECA does NOT power up and network is NOT available.

    I do not know whether this is a problem with the DECA or the current CE on the HR20-100 which we know has problems.

    I tried rebooting twice and the problem does not resolve.

    The DECA for the HR20-100 still needs to be connected up in the special way:

    All HR20-100's should be connected to SAT-2 IN on the STB, and use the splitter/pigtails as described in the first look, and the original documentation provided from DIRECTV.

    The new DECAs should help in situations where the older ones would fail to power up correctly.

    Thanks - That works. The DECA powered up and connects to the network and internet. The HR20-100 can see the 2 HR20-700s recorded programs. Due to known problems with MRV on the -100 I did not try playing the programs.
