After a brief flirtation with Comcast and their awful X1, I'm back with DirecTV! When the installer hooked things up again, everything works except the 2nd receiver (H25) reports no Internet.

Configuration:

Living room - HR44, connected to house Ethernet directly
Bedroom - H25, connected via coax cable through the wall

Everything works on the HR44.
Everything works on the H25 including whole-home DVR *except* it can't get On Demand/Internet.

Prior to this reconnect, I had an HR34 in the living room, and I was also able to watch On Demand on the H25.

Can someone see what's wrong here?

The 25 won't actually run "on demand". It'll play it but only access now is through a HDDVR.

Yes, to run on demand you need a DVR, because the program has to be recorded to a disk drive.

Thanks for the advice. It turns out I had a loose coax connection. After tightening things up the 2nd box has an Internet connection, but I'm not sure that the H25 uses it at all for anything... LOL

That will do it. I had to go through all of my connections after the tech left, and found two loose connections on my setup also.
