    Deca
    Hello I have 2 hr23 700 with decas set on each receiver and I can watch from room to room. The only thing is that I have no Internet and now the gaming adapters don't work. D* said there is a home network device that connects to the main coax and connects to the router. They want to charge me 130.00 for them to install it. Well I know I can do it my self to save some money. What is the device called that hooks up to the router to give all receivers Internet by coax and where can I buy it. Thanks!!

    it would be the same DECA that you have on your receivers. It just needs a 18 volt PI to power it.
    Where/who did this install/setup?

    The power inserter going into the splitter powers your SWM system and that PI won't have anything to do with DECA. A seperate PI will need to be used for the DECA attached to your router.

    Where did you buy the first DECA's? You can buy additionals at Solidsignal, and the word is D* is now selling them individually for $25.

    Can't use the same PI that powers the SWM. You need another 18 or 21 volt PI for the "future" DECA.

    Yes, just make sure the orientation on the DECA is correct. Out of curiosity how did you get your hands on DECA, but yet don't know where to get them?

    Should have 75ohm terminators on all the unused ports.
