Yes just a "simple" cat5 will do the job.tigerwillow1 said:I apologize if I'm asking something already answered. I searched without success.
1. If I want to run unsupported whdvr with just a single dvr and single hd receiver, can I run a hard ethernet connection between the two units without using a switch or router? Would it need to be a crossover cable?
2. If there is an AM21 on the DVR (and not on the other receiver), can the other receiver access live OTA?
Once a recording is made from the AM21, it is watchable on the other receiver.
What you can't do though is setup a recording from the receiver on the DVR that is an OTA channel, since the two guides need to have the same channels. Sat channels aren't a problem, but it would take a AM21 on each to be able to select an OTA program to record, from the receiver, on the DVR.
