The C31 can do trickplay (pause, rewind, fast forward) on live TV. The H25 can't unless you're recording the show.

You can have a H25 (I assume you didn't mean HR25 because there isn't one) connected to an HR34. You can also have HR2x DVRs connected.

This is precisely my system. A new SWM8 and LNB, new HR34, new H25 in bedroom (wanted a C31 but it couldn't connect to my old tube TV), legacy HR20-100 (with about 400 hours of shows on the 2TB external array) in rec room.

The HR34 easily plays the shows residing on the HR20, and vice versa. The H25 sees the whole playlist. This is a very capable whole home system. I couldn't be more satisfied.

The C31 should have worked fine with your old tube TV using the exact same component or composite adapter you are using to make the H25 work with it.

the h25 has composite outputs, with the client you have to have the composite 10 pin. Considering these are on back order and very few are in the field the tech prolly didn have one to use so he had to change it to a h25

ya i dont know what they were thinking there, but in a MPEG 4 market, i run into needing 3 10 pin connectors on one job sometimes

I have about 20 cables, pry need about 50 on hand all the time.

I bought a 10-pin cable from Amazon.com for one penny! Right now, it's price is $3.75. Keep an eye on this and see if the price goes back down again. Either way, even when you add in $4.99 for shipping, these are not expensive.

I believe Solid Signal has both the composite and component cables now for the H25/C31.
