What would you do? My RVU is screwed up and my wife is getting angry!

    My parents had the same issues as you with their entire network, not just RVU. I replaced the router with a Netgear gigabit router, and all their problems disappeared. I never could find any reason why the router would randomly disconnect devices.

    I set the router to use static IP for the TV and HR34 as well so its not a DHCP lease issue. I've tried a lot of stuff but no luck. Hope it's not the TV, that would be a nightmare.

    Heat... It's an absolute killer for any router.

    Have you run with the TV off the LAN? I really like DECA, and would use that, and set up the TV another way. If it's that new, it may have wireless. My recent Sammy TV does, somewhat to my surprise, as it's a modest 32" bedroom piece, though it's smarter than all getout!

    It's my understanding, from those like Stuart who have been working with RVU enabled TVs and their connectivity issues from the beginning, that you should never try to run an RVU enabled TV over WiFi.

    My suggestion is to return the TV to DECA and concentrate on trying to figure out why the NAS keeps disappearing from the network whenever the TV is hooked up via DECA that way.

    That shouldn't be happening.

    I'm still a little confused about your setup. How many TV's do you have? You make it sound like you have the HR34, but that you are also using the RVU client in the TV. You described how the cabling goes to the HR34, but what about the cabling to the TV in question?

    He said the TV is presently connected by ethernet cable to the router.

    Whenever he tried to connect the TV by DECA placing it in the cloud, for some reason it loses the ability to see the NAS which is on ethernet

    I have had this issue as well. I have a Netgear WNDR4500 router. I'm sure there are router settings that can help but don't know enough about them. Want to know more about Qos & UPnP, perhaps these can help...

    Got it. Missed the post where he said he moved the HR34 to the bedroom with the old TV and the Samsung is now in the LR.

    So I'm going to hook my TV back to the stock install thru deca and am not exactly sure how to do it. At the RVU TV it should be COax --> b band converter ---> connected home adapter. Then Ethernet to the TV. Is this correct?

    SWM systems do not use the b band converters.

    It should be Coax into DECA Adapter, Ethernet from DECA to TV - Like jimmie57 said - B-Band Converters are not needed and could cause problems with a SWM setup.

    Here is link to Samsung's possible setups for DECA and RVU, it might help you - just note that Possible Setup 2 and 3 is not officially supported by Directv (using all Ethernet) - so you basically want to use Possible Setup 1:

    Switched back to DECA and everything is working well. Only thing I changed was instead of using the CCK I just left the ethernet cable going to the HR34 in place and used that to bridge the network to the DECA cloud.

    NAS is streaming with only slight lag right at the begining of the video. Some pixelation issues on live TV but much better then before.

    Thanks for the help.

    Glad to hear it. Leaving the Ethernet cable in the HR34 is perfectly fine for bridging the DECA cloud to your home network. I do the same without issue.

    Good to hear! Did you disconnect the TV from the 'Net, or rig it another way? (And do you have a wireless TV-internet connex.?)

    The HR34 bridges my home network and the NAS to the DECA cloud where the TV is connected.

    Great to hear its working now. If you have upnp turned on in your router, you might shut that off to. Its caused issues in the past.

    Quick follow up. RVU is working well but my NAS isn't showing up on the source list anymore. When I plug in the Ethernet cord from my router it works fine but not through the DECA cloud. Frustrating.
