How do I establish an Ethernet connection to my TV for updates.
One problem to solve. Go to number 2 to skip the clutter.
1. I have a whole home Genie HR34-700 in our entertainment room.
Our Direct Tv technician hooked up a DCA2sr1-01 (Connected Home Adapter) to our Xfinity router and this feeds data to our coaxial cable. At the end of the line, there is a splitter and one cable goes to the receiver and the other cable goes to a powered adapter feeding an ethernet cable to a wifi access point and then distributes ethernet to our Xbox and Samsung smart TV.
2. The problem I want to solve: Our living room also has a Samsung Smart Tv but it fails to connect to wifi. I want to bring an ethernet cable to it and my Blue Ray player.
The receiver for our living room is an HR24-500.
Question: Can I run an ethernet cable from the HR24-500 ethernet port on the back of the HR24-500 to an ethernet hub and connect both my tv and BR player to the internet?
If not, what can I do to accomplish this goal?
