Here is a picture of the New Broadband Deca Model Number DECABB1MRO-01

It is similar in size to the White "Receiver" Deca currently in use, but the housing is Black in color and the Power Supply is slightly different. The White Receiver Deca can use either the 18v F Connector Power Supply or the 21v F Connector Power Inserter.

This has a round power connector similar to a router power connector...

The Standard White Receiver Deca is approx 2 1/4" x 5"
The New Broadband Deca is approx 3" x 4".

I have added a picture of the White Receiver Deca and the New Broadband Deca side by side

This is a kit, (as pictured) with the same blue ethernet cable as the receiver deca and a special BroadBandDeca Power Supply.

I added a photo of the PS18DERO-03 Power Inserter LH and next to it is the Special Power Inserter RH for the New BB Deca

The Special Power inserter for the New BB Deca is part number MT12-P120100-A1

I want one too, and I do not even have MRV set up, yet. Is there anything on the back of the DECABB1MRO-01 to allow for mounting on the wall?

Just because we don't "need" something doesn't mean we don't "want" it.
(This is something that not all wives understand...I think it's mostly a guy thing.)
Remember, when it comes to audio/video, more is always better. (This does NOT apply to remote controls!)

There are 4 small elongated rubber pads on the bottom side.

I do not see a way to wall mount this..... It is very lightweight.

I too was hoping to be able to wall mount it, But right now mine it is sitting flat.

+3 :D

And I agree it is bad to want to pay to upgrade for something so trivial as just aesthetic value over using a standard DECA dongle and PS for the BB DECA function.

But what the heck ... :)

Jimmie57

No advantage that I can see.... Just a different package

Have had it connected for about 1 hour now

Replaced a White Receiver Deca that I was using as an Internet Connection

Took a few minutes to install and then power it up.. All three light lit up (Green) and we were reconnected to the Internet.

You are exactly right

I did not NEED it, my white receiver Deca functions just fine..

My wife just rolled her eyes when I mentioned it last night at dinner.....

Oh Well

Sure could use velcro (It is VERY lightweight) as long as your RG-6 was flexible enough...

I just called Direct. I had MRV installed in June. I asked them to send me a Broadband Deca because I've been using the The Standard White Receiver Deca. She told me that both the Standard White Receiver Deca & the New Broadband Deca are both called Broadband Decas and the 3" x 4" one is just a newer version. After trying to explain it to her many times that she was wrong I said the hell with it and hung up. :mad:

She was right.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I would be curious as to the temperature of this one compared to the old one.
I have read several posts where the F connector is so hot they could not keep their fingers on it.
I suspect that might be the same since they are both feeding power into the line.

Thanks
