Depends on what you do with RF. Are you distributing RF to other TVs in the home?

If not then it is simple.

Remove the Diplexer that is behind the Explora 1.

Connect the 3A direct to the cable coming from the SLNB.

Now check what the network settings are on the Explora 2A 

Make sure you do not set the EXplora 3A to use those settings.

 

 


Yes thanks GeoffD that is exactly what i did. Removed the Diplexers and all is working fine.

Re: Connecting Explora 3A to Explora 2A Extraview

No worries, I managed to sort things out. Its really simple after all. Just connect the A and B wires from the SLNB to the Unicable ports of each decoder and walla. No more diplexer etc. just pure cable. Thanks anyway.

Connecting Explora 3A to Explora 2A Extraview

Hi, I just swopped my Explora 1(DPS5001) for a Explora 3A. I have a Explora 2A in another room. The Explora 3A will be primary. I have a SLNB installed as well. How would I need to connect the two for extraview now that there is no RF In/Out on the 3A anymore? Thanks.
