So Ive been reading around all morning as its my day off, and Im starting to wonder about different options for my home network. Lets start off by saying I use on demand religiously and I had another coax ran to mirror my DVR to all the other tvs to make my own MRV long before I joined SGuys and joined the CE. So obviously I download the new CE every week. Ive been using the homeplug devices for ondemand that directv sells because im a tech and can get them cheap as dirt, and of ondemand, they work fine. But as far as MRV goes, SD seems ok, but HD is choppy as all hell, it pixelates every 10min or so, skips, freezes, it seems as if there would be a bad fitting somewhere causing the 103/99 to short, thats what MRV looks like to me at most times on HD. Of course I would watch the program on the host box just to make sure that wasnt the case. anyway, so now i am asking you, the Satellite Guys Community. What do you use for your MRV, and what is your experience with it? I refuse to do a wireless bridge, and prefer homeplugs of some sort, because running cat cable, isnt going to happen. I was considering looking into the network over coax units. (cant think of the name atm) but I run D*, E*, and Comcast into this house, so im not sure thats a good idea, and I already had bad experiences diplexing with SWM. the only coax line that runs to the basement is RG59 and currently used for my dish tv2 lines, so i guess i could share that, not sure how those units like 59 though. and pulling 6 through is going to be a very difficult project as I have already tried.... Anyone have any other input?
