How is the whole home DVR set up connected to the network? Does there need to be a receiver or sat connection close to the router? My router is in a place where there is no access to a sat connection. Is that going to be an issue?

Shouldn't be.

Is there a "live" CAT5 connection near any MRV receiver? If so, you can split the co-ax coming to that receiver and install the "broadband" DECA on one leg. You'll then connect that "live" CAT5 to it.

Or, if you can run CAT5 or co-ax from the SWIM to your router, that will work as well.

You could also use a wireless adapter to connect to the DECA used to bridge to the internet (assuming you have a wireless network currently).

I just so happen to have a couple of extra Linksys WGA600N's. ;)

No, I have Uverse, so the internet connection is through the phone lines. No coax for internet.

You need to have a router where you can run a cat5 cable to a DECA adapter, then the DECA adapter will insert the internet into a coax cable.

The coax would be to carry the internet back to the DECA cloud. If you could run a coax to your router, you could have a DECA adapter placed there and connected to your router and back to the SWM splitter via the coax run.

Or, run cat5 from the router to a place where DIRECTV coax already exists (at a splitter, receiver, etc) and place the DECA adapter there.
