Currently, I am using MRV through my ethernet home network. I have a HR21-700 and HR23-700 connected directly to a Slimline 5 dish. To switch to DECA what is the total list of equipment needed to use MRV and have the boxes still connected to the internet through my router to keep those services that require internet service? Thanks in advance for the help!

If you're Slimline-5 is NOT a SWiM, then you'd need the following:

SWiM-LNB (to replace LNB on your Dish)
2 receiver DECAs (one for the HR21, one for the HR23)
1 broadband DECA (currently same as receiver DECA)
1 power inserter (for broadband DECA)
a connection path from the broadband DECA to your SWiM network .. could be a splitter near one of your existing receivers.

A SWM LNB or SWM8.
A power inserter for SWM.
SWM 4way splitter if SWM LNB used.
3 DECA adapters.
A DECA power inserter.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

You would need a SWM LNB, SWM LNB Power Inserter, two 2 way splitters (or a 4 way splitter), 2 DECA adapters, and either another DECA adapter and power supply for it, or a broadband DECA unit (which aren't out yet).

You would have one coax cable from the SWM LNB, to the SWM power inserter, and then to the splitter. You would then run one cable from the splitter to a DECA adapter and then hook the DECA adapters up to the DVRs. You would then need to hook up the third DECA Adapter/broadband DECA unit to your home router and your coax network. How you do that depends on if your router is near the main splitter or by one of the DVRs.

Terminations for any unused ports on splitter, power inserters and broadband DECA.
