Need some help on what equipment I need.

Thanks for any help.

Get everything up and running. Then you might get away with using the ethernet breakout from the DECA to feed a switch in the bedroom and via that get internet/LAN available for other items.
However, disclaimer time... It is not really recommended to put other stuff on your DECA cloud. That's one of the major advantages of using DECA for whole-home is that it is isolated from other traffic.
You would be better off if you can find any way to run a cat5e wire from the basement to the bedroom, so that you have both an RG6 and an ethernet wire.

Is there no way to send an ethernet signal across RG6 on just one wire and then put ethernet switches on both ends so it can be plugged into the whole house ethernet cloud? If I can do this, I'll just suffer with using only one tuner in the bedroom on that DVR.
