So I am looking to use the DECA equipment to do some home networking over existing coax, not related to DIRECTV. If I use one DECABB1R0 w/ power sup by my router, does the second DECABB1R0 require a power supply?

The reason i would suspect that I may not require it, is that on the DIRECTV diagrams with the older white DECA, they didn't require it near the receivers.

Appreciate any help on this question.

The "white" DECA all need a power supply.
When connected to a receiver, the receiver powers them.

So to answer your question... Each DECA that is not connected to a receiver needs to have its own power supply (PI).
