yes,
because all your DVRs will communicte through one router port.
Think of it as the DECA Cloud connecting to your router (not each DVR)

One question that I have not seen answered is: If I went with SWM+DECA, would I be able to free up the three hardwired ports on my router now occupied by my three HR20'?


All of your HR2x receivers would be removed from the network switches if you go with DECA. They would all be on their own MRV optimized private network (a.k.a. the DECA cloud).

You would like attach one more DECA node that would connect to your router (or switch). This would provide Internet/Home Network connectivity for all of your receivers through this one junction.

Thanks guys. Now I am beginning to understand why many felt the $149 price was a bargain. The freed up router ports are another bonus of the professional installation.

In addition to that getting the low price upgrade to a SWiM system. Removing the need for two lines at each DVR, but still able to use both tuners.

Slimlin-5 with SWM16
HR44-700 with AM21 OTA tuner and eSATA 3.0 TB
HR24-500 with AM21 OTA tuner and eSATA 2.0 TB
HR21-700 with DECA adapter for network
Network: Netgear WNDR4500
Internet: Comcast 105/20

You could do the same thing with a work station switch for $26, if all you care about is freeing up space on your router.

Can the DECA modules work with the SWimLine Dish setup...ie SL5-SWM LNB single line fed by a PI-21 Power Supply & SWS-8 8-Port splitter (AU9-5-SWM-B-PWS)? Is there any need for the Band Stop Filter with this configuration and HR23-700 receivers?
Occupation: Satellite Systems Engineer/Test Engineer
Setup:
- QTY 4 HR23-700's w/ SWM-8
- QTY 2 Linksys WRT-54GS w/ DD-WRT v24 pre-SP2.

It depends. If it's a newish SWM LNB with a green label, a Band Stop filter isn't needed. If it's been there for a while, a BS filter is needed (and in any case won't hurt). The HR23s will have DECAs attached and should not have BS filters. You'll want another DECA and PS to connect to your home network.

If the splitter doesn't have a green label, it should be replaced with a new green label MRV rated splitter (the old one will work, the green label one will work better).

Man, did this thread slow down! I wonder if the "Boys from Staten Island" have the DECA install figured out yet. I can't imagine turning one of them loose on my sat system. Maybe in a year or so. No joke intended here, I'm quite serious, sadly.

Yes, in fact I think the time has come to close this one and ask you to start new threads as necessary for specific issues.
