Distance limitations on DECA to receiver?
Posted 23 May 2010 - 11:36 AM
Would I be able to put the DECA module near the SWM which is about 50' away from the receiver? I have a dedicated CAT5 to this location, so I can just plug it in to the DECA as well. The only thing that would really change is the DECA module would be 50' instead of 6" away from the receiver (HR21-700).

How would you connect the ethernet cable from the DECA to the receiver?
I have an ethernet cable connected now. The cable runs from the receiver to a wall plate, from the wall plate back to a scructured wiring cabinet. From there it runs to my switch. Instead of running it to the switch, I would run it to the DECA.

There is no reason a DECA with a long cat5 to the receiver wouldn't work.
The receiver is in a built-in cabinet. To get access to the back of it requires removing a 140# plasma, removing the panel behind it, removing the faux shelf. The TV is too heavy for my wife to help me with, so I need to get my neighbor -twice. Last time I just swapped out the HR20 that was there for the HR21, took me over and hour just to break down/replace the cabinetry. Its just a huge PITA.
