Whole home dvr has worked great for the 6 or so months we've had it. However, we swapped tvs in a room that is the line actually connected to the Internet. Since hooking it back up, that tv can't find server. Very possible we hooked it back up wrong, but we're not sure where it's wrong.

What model DVRs and Receivers do you have?
Have you tried resetting all of your DVRs and Receivers?

you cannot connect any of the directv receivers to the cable that is proving your cable internet . you must run a new cable from the SWM splitter. DirecTV can do this for you for $50.00

Tell us exactly how you have it all connected and we can let you know what's wrong. You have to be our eyes.

If you'd post back the model numbers from the two underlined items it would help us visualize your setup

At the onscreen Network Setup under advance setup it has default IP settings 169.x.y.z something which is outside the range of a home network of 192.168.1.y. So u need to enter the 4 lines of ip addresses; server, gateway, dns and subnet mask. Depending on how many wireless devices you have you'll want to be sure the server ip (last value) does not conflict with any other wireless device. I gave mine 192.168.1.20 (20 is high enough for my use.). Also throw away the short ethernet cable that came with the kit. I know the guide and onscreen instructions say connect it from dcck to dvr. But it wont work if u do.

you are referring to the wireless CCK and the OP has a WIRED CCK, which connect to the router via Ethernet cable
