    I am needing some assistance and haven't found the answer I need in this forum. You all are always so good about helping, I hope you can do it again.

    When I had MRV w/ internet installed they installed a SWiM 8, and 2 HR24s. They installed the SWiM8 so I could continue to use an older SD Receiver which my wife won't let me get rid of. Later I decided I wanted to have an H24 in my office so I used an approved splitter and installed the H24 in my office. Now I'm thinking I would like to replace the H24 with another HR24 and add it to my MRV network.


    1. Will the one cable I am using for the H24 off of the splitter work for the HR24?

    2. Will both receivers inside the HR24 work off of the one line?

    3. Will the Internet be available on the new HR24?

    4. Do I need to consider anything else?

    Thanks very much for your help!!

    3. Yes

    4. No
