I didn't think $149 was too bad for a new HR24, SWiM 16 and Deca modules. . .

We don't own the hotel . . . We don't know when we check out!

Stayed on the Ethernet for now. Will change to DECA when a service exists (that I desire) and it is not operable on standard networking.


Currently the DECA technology and SWM16 don't seem to be an ideal fit yet for a stretched out residence with 15 tuners in use such as mine.

I also would expect the LAN switching going forward to better support the standards that the DECA touts as there are so many home media streaming devices in use now outside the proprietary DTV stack.

All that being said, if I had 8 tuners or less, didn't have a built in CAT5e hardwired network, and it was a normal sized structure I'd have gone the DECA route but I don't so I didn't.
