In reading about the new deca i went back and read the old DECA first look again. Here I notice a reference to a stop filter between the SWM LNB and your SWM Splitter. is this necessary? My setup is missing this currently but i don't know of any issues I am having. Please advise.

Typically the Stop Band Filter is only required on coax lines feeding an SD DVR (R16) or SD Receiver (D12).

What other equipment do you have?
HD DVRs: HR34-700; HR24-500; (2) HR20-700 + WD eSATA 1TB drive/Antec MX1 case; HR21-700; HR21-200 w/AM21
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver; H21-100 HD Receiver
Mobile Devices: Nomad

Older SWMLnb's required a BSF (which is why you might see it referenced.) If you look at the LNB (and it has a green label) then you do not need a BSF before it.
