Proposed new home config with multiple DVRs
We currently have our two DVRs in the family room (HR22/100 and HR24/200) and a H23-600 receiver in a guest bedroom. I use component to VGA cable or a modulator and RF remote control to watch in 2-3 other locations.
After we move I plan to add a Genie for a Whole-Home DVR network but have a few questions. To keep costs down, I plan to move the HR24 to my office which will be my secondary viewing location, instead of getting a Genie Mini there.
1. Can I view the recordings made in my office on the Genie in the family room? Most of the material I've read describes the Genie as being the hub and streaming outward, but this would be streaming into the Genie from another DVR location.
2. Similarly, will the family room Genie show On Demand programs originating in the ethernet-connected HR24 in my office? I've read the threads about not using the LAN port for the ethernet connection, but using DECA instead. I guess DECA would effectively put all the units on the 'net, do I have that right?
Thanks for all the info on this forum and thanks in advance for your help in answering my questions.
