Question about change from Fios D*

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I am switching from fios to D*, keeping the money internet though.

Here are my questions:

Rep on the phone said they were rolling out the H21 and that if the installer didn't have it I could postpone a couple of weeks and get it. She said that it had a multiswitch or something like that and only needed one cable.

Now I have only had experience with the fios motorolla hd dvr and currently out of my wall I have two jacks, one with a line going to my super bulky action tech router and the other going to the MOTO hddvr. SO if I get the HR20, how are they going to hook up another cable and hook it up when I have one jack? Are they going to have put another hole in the dry wall?

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Two observations:

1. The H21 is not a DVR, don't know if the HR21 is going to be released anytime soon.

2. Don't worry the installer will figure it out.

The H21 is a non DVR receiver also.

The CSR was referring to SWM which allows the HR20 HD DVR to be hooked up with one wire instead of two, it hasn't been released for public use yet. Basically if you want both tuners to work now, you'll need another cable run.
