    How is that a fair price? I got 4 installed for $99. It would have been 5, except the upgraded DVR was an HR24 and didn't need one. And the SWM-8 was also included.

    I have a feeling these will come down in price significantly after more become available, assuming D* doesn't make customers return them along with their receivers if they terminate their service.

    IIRC, don't you also need a DECA filter to install these properly? I can't find the installation notes quickly, but I think you need one.

    Yes, I know, I was joking.

    Buy them all! It's an incredible deal. Spend $300 on something you can get in a couple weeks for $99!!!

    There is never any D* equipment on eBay that was supposed to be returned to D* :p As long as they aren't tied to an account like receivers are, who cares :D They will be all over before we know it.

    The short answer is, "It depends."

    I don't have one on mine, but it's the way mine is connected (basically being used only as a bridge to my LAN for two 24's) on their own SWiM.

    Thanks, LL. I haven't looked seriously into DECA and can't remember all the details. I diplexed my OTA and am happy enough with a hard-wired network.

    The eBay listing is incorrect about the HR20-100 [I'm shocked] since it too now requires a filter.

    Rumor has it there are "green label" SWM8's that have the filter built in. Not sure on the SWM16.

    I was wondering why some were green. I notices there is a green label and white lable SWS-8 splitter. Is the white label going to be a problem?

    Green just means their spec'd [as in known how they work] for DECA. The white labels "might be" the same device, but hasn't been verified.

    The dealer on eBay that is selling the HR24s says he can include a DECA module for $48 bucks. I bet since his receivers are 20% higher than the normal lease fee, if we apply that thinking to his DECA adapters, they will be $40 directly, if available that way. I guess we will see what happens...

    There are "green label" SWM LNB's that don't need a filter, and the SWiM-16 doesn't need a filter and has an internal bridge for the two DECA clouds.

    75 dollars each is crazy. I'll pass, plus no instructions.

    I emailed him and asked him how many were included for $75.

    He said just one. :lol:

    Pass

    Looks like MRV/DECA goes national on the 11th.
    Charge for direct to come out and hook up is $99 for the hardware and $49 for the installation. The 3 dollar a month charge seems fair. I'm going to try my current home networking that's already hard wired first if my second DVR gets here in time. Not looking good if they go MRV nation wide on the 11th. The DECA will most likely work the best for streaming HD anyways, if I can't try out the beta home networking.
