HR23-700 ,H21-200, H24-700, Genie H44-700 AU9-SL3 Dish
SWM-16 , DECA network hooked to internet, WHDVR/MRV
Tailgate Setup: AU9-SL3 on 3' Tripod, H21-200
runs on Legacy port of SWM-16 when not at the game.

SL5 on the roof
On left, Sonora Slope Compensator, Amp and Polarity Locker top to bottom, loops around at the bottom to the input of the SWM16. Lower right is the PI for the SWM box. Broadband DECA to Internet on above the SWM16, then the 4 port greenlabel splitters.
4 are DECA, rest will be when the remaining 3 DECA adapters get here.
Other than same legacy compression connectors on the main feeds coming from the dish, all compression connectors. Someday I'll rebuild that too, but all signals are 95+

I got rid of a lot of Coax with this new configuration.
The video quality is amazing.

Would the part highlighted in yellow work? Any advice/opinions welcome.

This device has several options to be hooked up.
Is that the way you set it up? I assumed it could replace my current original white DECA box where it's on it's own coax.
I'm using it just like a BB DECA, and not using the pass through it has [terminated output].
Another way is to use it as "a replacement" for a white DECA connected to a receiver, "BUT" you also need to use a BSF. So you connect it in "pass through" mode, with ethernet to the receiver and a BSF on the SAT input.
You can also use it without DECA as a wireless adapter too.
^ now you can replace the DECA with a BSF and connect the ethernet to the DECAW.

The DirecTV installation used to just hang off various places on the structured wiring cabinet. The whole install is a lot cleaner now. Having said that, as I'm posting this picture I see that I need some longer patch cables to make a neater installation:

How to only use a 4-way splitter and have four receiver and internet:

The SWM8 as a minimum 15' coax for the PI to resolve this poor RF match of the DC block. DECA also seems to have the same issue.
Adding a longer length of coax or a splitter over comes this problem.
While terminations are good to use, they also are just wasting signal power into a resistor, so it's better configure the system so the least terminations are needed.
Here is one way to position the PI so it has a splitter between it and the DECAs:
I've added to the bulletin images for the 24s and their DECA problem with a PI, to show where a BB DECA [or another receiver] can be connected and still not have problems:

getting MRV is pending as they seem to ignore my e-mails and I'm hesitant to risk wasting signing a 2 year comitment before the HR34 is available
red is standard networking cable, black is coax
