I'm trying to figure out if the installer will have to run coax from my multiswitch to the room where my internet router resides (going to be a tough run, I think).
My current set-up is:
Slim-line 5 lnb (four coax runs) to:
x8 multiswitch (six coax runs) to:
Three receivers (HR20-700, HR22-100, and HR22-100), two lines each (each in different room).
ATT Uverse router (not in same room with any of the TVs) -- Cat5e to:
8 port switch in attic (three Cat 5e runs) to:
A four port switch in each TV room (1 cat5e) run to:
Each of the HRs.
This set-up worked great for MRV Beta and works well for all other internet/network DirecTV functions.
If I go to DECA, I know I will have to have a new LNB and a new multiswitch for the SWiM -- but those will not require any new coax runs (I assume) -- they will just use one of the existing two runs to each receiver.
I also understand that each receiver will need a DECA.
But, the router also needs a DECA, too (with a power supply?), correct?
Does that DECA and power supply have to be directly connected to the router (in same room) or could it be located with the 8-port switch in the attic?
