I am hoping someone can help me with my issue, as I have spent 2 hours on the phone with DTV and no luck. It's no wonder I am turning prematurely grey!
I have the following set up:
Living Rm - HR24-200 and a wireless cinema kit
Bedroom - HR24-100
This configuration has been working great. I can see the playlists on each receiver and also can access the internet or on demand content with no issues.
I have added a R22-100 in my basement and here is where the issue occurs. I cannot connect to the network and cannot see the playlists on the other 2 DVR's. No one at tech support on the phone can seem to figure it out. The closest we have come to a solution is to connect an Ethernet cable directly to the R22 from my router. When we connect the cable directly to the R22 I can then see the playlists from the other machines.
My issue is that I don't want to run a 100 foot cable from the 3rd floor to the basement just for this functionality, and according to tech support I shouldn't have to.
Anyone have any ideas? All help is welcomed and appreciated!! Thanks!!

You could also move the wireless cck downstairs providing you have wifi signal
Down there and use a cat 5
Jumper from the cck to the r22

Thanks for the quick response!!
is this a Deca? I have one of these but no clue on how to hook it up.

That would only connect this R22 to the internet, leaving the other two with no internet access, you still would need a DECA adapter.

you can use that, but you will need a SWM 2 way splitter.

The problem is that I don't have a Cat5 that will reach it and don't want to run the cable.

No, the CCK-W can do one or the other but not both.

It would be split one coax into the deca one coax into the r22
Then the cat5 from the deca into the r22

Probably just easier for you to get one from dtv just call and
Ask they should ship you one

you would need to split the sat cable in two, one leg feeding the receiver along with a BSF, and the other leg to the DECA
