Firmware downloads do occasionally interrupt the network settings and this seems more prevalent on the boxes that have internal DECA as does the HR24s you have.

First, make sure your network is in fact intact. Are the link lights flashing appropriately? Do your non DTV appliances operate normally?

DECA uses it;s own IP addressing range and on occasion a firmware update reverts the receivers to that.

There are no instructs in the HDGUI to force everyone to DECA but as I said, firmware updates sometimes pack some unexpected head scratches. Mostly they don't and it would be rare for more than one receiver to revert to DECA standard IP settings. Not impossible but highly unlikely.

Verify they are still authorized and you can renew that on line if need be, reset the boxes (menu reset preferred over RBR but either works), then you might have to play with the settings.

But first verify your network's interoperability, if you've a switch that's locked up, or storming your network it could be blocking traffic.

When you say "play with the settings", can you elaborate? I am experiencing the same symptoms, just stopped seeing other DVR and tuners.

Under the menu> settings> network setup> Repeat Network Setup

Or menu> settings> network setup> restore defaults (this could be require you to re setup the Whole Home name. I do the one listed first and see if that clears it up.

Sometimes the simplest solution is just a reboot though

menu> settings> reset is the cleanest reboot method.

For me as I'm unsupported it's been a bit of trial and error but not many issues really.

Thanks very much, keeping for future reference. Seems in this particular case, the cleaning lady jarred loose a cable. Reminder to always start at the basics. :).
