    In the picture of the WCCK, there isn't a coax connected, so it doesn't, "but" should you connect a coax, and/or use the pass through to feed a receiver that doesn't have an internal/external DECA, "then" a filter is needed.

    An active DECA on the coax means the signal travels all through the coax to all the receivers.

    Don't I need to connect the coax in order to get Internet access into my nephew's bedroom? As I wrote in my first post, the Wifi in his room stinks, but it's good in the den, where the CCK is currently located. So, it would be pointless to move the CCK into his bedroom. Plus it would eliminate VOD on the den DVR, which was the primary reason that the the repair tech gave them the CCK in the first place.

    Since the goal is to get a wired signal from a good connection (the den), into his bedroom, I'm assuming that I need to run the coax currently connected to DVR in the den, thorough the CCK and then into the DVR.

    Or am I just missing something?

    "Nope" you're not missing anything "but" another DECA [with power supply] and "a bunch" of filters.

    Apparently, I am missing something. The DECA that I ordered is coming with a power supply. But, why do I need the power supply? The coax output of the DECA is going to be connected to a DirecTV receiver and the Ethernet is going to be connected to a network switch.

    Won't the DirecTV receiver power the DECA (I just found out that he has an H21 in his room)? IF not, do I now need to buy a 2-way splitter for the bedroom with 1 half going to the receiver and the other half going to the DECA, which would then need to be connected to the power supply and network switch?

    You didn't say before there was a receiver at that location to power the DECA.

    If you're going this way this receiver doesn't need a BSF:
