    Oh good .. Glad to see this happen. I thought that it might but didn't know for sure if there would be licensing issues or not. The pricing seems to be about on par with what I would have expected as well, so this is good.

    You would only need the power inserter for broadband use. Also will need some Band Stop Filters for the HR20-100s or non-DECA receivers:

    Suddenly the $150 from DIRECTV looks to be worth it.

    Sorry if this has been discussed before. Does the SWM/DECA upgrade from DirecTV result in a contract extension? If it does, this would be a decent alternative route for me.

    Dripping...
    My understanding is if any receivers don't need to be replaced then there is no contract extension if it's just a SWiM and DECA adapters.

    Bainbridge...
    It depends on how many adapters, splitters, etc., you need and if you already have SWM. I only need one DECA, so $40 is a pretty good deal (and shipping is free). For comparison, I paid $148 for two MoCA adapters. I don't currently have any bandstop filters with my H24 and HR24, so I figured I would wait and see if there are any new issues before purchasing them.

    One of the Mods has been indicating this for some time already... ;)

    Both mentions of the Band Stop Filter mention HR20-100. Is it specific only to the -100 or does it include all HR2x-xxx aside from the HR24?

    I think the "sudden" part is the realization of the actual costs involved in a DIY solution.

    Perhaps...but the package that has been talked about here for many weeks already seemed like a pretty good deal to get a household of HD DVR and HD receiver network connectivity via SWiM and DECA, not to mention potential upgrades.

    A good value is always in the eye of the beholder of course. :);)

    Don't forget that power inserter if you are using it for broadband .. If it's for a receiver only, then of course you won't need one.

    The number of bandstop filter for receivers depends on:
    any receiver without a DECA,
    The HR20-100, since the DECA requires a special setup with a splitter to power the DECA off the SAT #2.

    Glad a thread I started earlier has turned out to not be true.

    (5) HR2x DECA adapters x $40 = $200
    (1) SWM16 x $349 = $349
    (1) PI x $18.89 = $18.89

    I'm up to already $560 for a DIY project if I go through Solid Signal.

    So I already have SWM with 3 receivers. MRV working via power line with internet ondemand. 2 HR21's and 1 R22. So to upgrade my MRV to DECA I would need 4 DECA adapters 1 for each receiver and 1 for my router with a P21 power inserter? I would not need the stop band filter since all receivers are compatable?

    You would only need one bandstop filter for your older SWM.
