    Oh well, just a thought that had occurred to me after watching the "light show" going on in my bedroom Sunday.

    There was no MRV going on, no DoD going on, or MediaShare going on.

    I've never seen that much activity on the DECAs before, and the only thing I could think of was that some sort of background activity was going on.

    Many of us are interested in the reason, conditions, and activities tied to the "colored light show" from the C.Link LEDs...:D

    Ok, so here's something interesting with the C.Link LED's...

    When I reboot my HR21-100 the other 3 C.Link LED's go green until the HR21-100 rejoins the cloud. When I reboot the others, with the HR21-100 powered up, all the other lights stay orange.

    I can reproduce this every time...

    Is there something with the HR21-100? Maybe along the same lines as the HR20-100 needing to be wired differently?

    1) Are you plugging in to the top Ethernet port on the HR21-100?

    2) Is anything else plugged into the HR21-200 in the 2nd Ethernet (lower) port?

    If your answers are YES (#1) and NO (#2)...then we're pretty much back to square one. :D

    Yeah it is because right now I'm 3 greens and 1 orange with all units powered up. And the orange isn't the HR21-100, it's my H21-100.

    Thought I'd give this a bump.

    I'd moved the filter back to the first splitter some time back and had all green LEDs off the last splitter and could never get the LED off the first splitter to turn green. Been this ways for weeks.
    Last night PG&E decided I needed a full house "reset".
    Now all C.Links are back to yellow/orange.
    Pulling the power cord on my router DECA had the one on my HR21 turn green "until" the power came back to the router DECA. All [C.links] now back to yellow. :(

    Wondering if we can get DirecTV to provide some information on the whole "mestery" surrounding the LED colors.

    Doug?
