    CCK is not recommended for HR24's because it has deca built in so that's why you're getting freezes unless for mrv through coax connection not ethernet (i think that's what i read in the manual) As for static ip did you see the merg's link in post 15#

    I think you may be mixing up the function of a CCK for the HR24. The 24 needs a connection for internet access and that's what the CCK does.

    Yep...gotta have the CCK w/the HR24s. But MANY thanks for sending me back to that post. My tired eyes blew right past it the first time. That will be tomorrow night's project.

    And thanks to The Merg too!

    Well so far so good on the static ips. I think that fixed my problems with the mrv disconnecting. It disconnected one time but i think maybe it seeb the ips change and reconnected right back and have been online since.

    Will keep u posted!

    I've been reading through as many posts as possible to see if anyone has the same issue as me, and it seems some are similar, but not completely the same.

    My issue is i have 2 HR24's with a CCK, set up for the whole home viewing. Every time there is a firmware update from DTV, the two receivers no longer are connected and i cannot watch the playlist from the other DVR. One still shows it is connected to the internet, the other says it isn't and there is no cable? I don't know why, since it had been connected just fine, via coax, prior to the update.

    The first few times this happened, i was able to get them reconnected by doing a red button reset on both machines at the same time. This worked great...until this time. Now they are not reconnecting again.

    I tried to assign a static ip, using the suggestion and following the link from page 1, but this didn't work, the receiver that says it isn't connected still cant find the connection.

    Any ideas??? Sorry if this has been asked and answered before, but i did search quite a bit before posting.

    Mike

    This has happened to me before.
    What I did was to reset the network defaults and then do a menu restart.
    I wouldn't do more than one at the same time.
    If you still have one that says there is no cable [coax network], re-run the SAT setup as this reactivates the DECA/coax networking.

    Hmm, so you are saying if that an HR24 has the ethernet " turn ON" there is no need to do a reset to "turn off" ethernet and " turn on" DECA/coax networking. Just repeating the satellite setup accomplishes the same result?

    No, but with a CCK, the poster sounded like they were using the coax networking and not ethernet.
    Yes there can't be a ethernet connection for DECA/coax networking to work, but if the HR24 has stopped the DECA, re-running the SAT setup is how to reactivate it.
    "Step 1" reset network defaults and reboot.
    "Step 2" if it shows it's not coax connected, re-run SAT setup.
    "Step 3" if still not connected, check coax wiring.

    Thanks for the replies, much appreciated! Before checking this, this morning I tried the red button resent yet again, and alas, they connected again. No idea why they didn't last night. But I will print out this page and try the way you suggested above next time it happens.

    Anyone have any idea why this happens only when there is a firmware update? Shouldn't this be something that DirecTV knows about and could fix?

    By the way, I do have the coax set up. The ethernet goes to the CCK, and then coax from there to the dish or DECA (not sure exactly), and then a coax to each receiver. Does this sound right???

    I don't think it has nothing to do with DirecTV, but rather your router "getting" confused when all receivers are trying to get an IP address at the same time

    Tough call as I go through many updates without problems, but got bit not long ago.
