Thanks for the help so far. Admittedly, I'm still kind of confused.veryoldschool said:Not quite sure of your setup.
DECA can be used for networking, even if you don't have MRV added to your account.
The HR24 has an internal DECA, but this needs another DECA to "talk to" and create the network.
If you use the ethernet port on the HR24, it turns the DECA off.
I do have a SWiM system installed, and I do understand the HR24 has an internal DECA built in. Therefore, I would certainly get another DECA adapter (along with a PI). Once I get the additional DECA adapter in the run, would I need to connect the HR24 to the switch and the "home network" to get "On Demand" and "Directv Cinema"?
Your comment of plugging into the ethernet port would turn the DECA off - I guess maybe my question is, do I have to enable MRV to still have access to the "On Demand" features?
