    I am going to be connecting DECA to 3 HRs as well as 1 DECA to the internet. Do I need a power supply for each DECA or just 1 of them? If just one does it mater which one?

    The HR24 has DECA built-in. The other HRs will power DECA adapters but you need a power supply for the one used for the internet.

    It depends. I have an HR20 that needs a power supply for the DECA even though it's not the one connected to the Internet. The installer tried it without the power supply first and it didn't connect to the other HR very well.

    HR20-100's used to require a PI, back in the Beta days, and while it will still work like that, there is a new way to hook them up now by using both Sat Ports, a splitter, and a Band Stop Filter. Although, the HR20-100's are still pretty picky and sometimes won't work however they are hooked up.
