    Stuart,
    Here are the picture captions, of course these are open to change:

    DECA 1
    Below is one of many ways to connect an SWM 8 up to a DECA cloud.

    DECA 2
    Below is a typical Slimline LNB/SWM with a HD Receiver connected via CAT 5e cable to Network Port 2 of the HD DVR to establish an uplink into the DECA cloud.

    I thought using port#2 for the home network connection was "unsupported". I referenced it in the overview doc just so folks would know that we tested it.
    Note: Instead of installing a "network" DECA, it should be possible to have a DECA-attached receiver with two RJ-45 ports provide the Home Network connectivity by connecting the top RJ-45 port to the DECA and the bottom RJ-45 port to the Home Network. This configuration may be unsupported by DirecTV, and you must be very careful to not create a loop condition whereas there's more then one connection from the Coax Network to the Home Network. This will also cause all network traffic to the Home Network to pass through the DECA that is attached to the receiver providing the Home Network connection, which may affect the network performance of this receiver.
    We may want to get some guidance from DirecTV before including any reference in the First Look to port#2 for the home network connection.

    Here is an alternate that can be used for the DECA 2 layout! I will create the PDF and send this to Stuart as well. I will create a poll for a vote on which one to use in a new thread or if we here something different from Big Daddy D*!

    Mark's latest PDF drawings are very nice, and will only enhance the First Look in that form.

    I guess I needed a nap before my brain was working again but:

    Slimline SL3S is the wrong title for the dish pictured since it's a SL5S.

    The final First Look was just sent in for final review and approval a few minutes, and reflects just about all of the suggestions/revisions in your posts.

    Thanks to the entire DECA testing team for your comments, feedback, suggestions, and input -your contributions will be noted.

    Dave 29 and I appreciated the opportunity to both join you in testing and create the First Look as well. :)

    We hope and anticipate (there's that dirty word again :D) the final version will be a solid report.

    The DECA3 picture is exactly how mine is set up, and works perfectly. Wish I could draw, did an excellent job there.

    I am curious, where did the term "cloud" come from?
