If I wanted to try to setup the DECA network are the below the correct items to get?
New DECA x 3 for bedroom, guest bedroom, game room DIRECTV Ethernet Coax Adapter DECA (DECA1MR01)
Splitter for living room kit. DirecTv MSPLIT2R1 Approved Zinwell 2-Way Wide Band SWM Splitter
New DECA for living room and by router DIRECTV DECA Broadband Adapter - 1 x RJ-45 Network - External
I have the old white DECA units now, but wanted to ensure I put the latest stuff in place if I was to try it.
I plan to try this first then get the powerline as a second backup option.
Well, you'll still be on your DECA cloud which may or may not impact your WHDVR service (I haven't had any issues with a similar arrangement but that's no guarantee). With that said, I don't think you need to replace your white DECAs but if you're looking for the latest model, it's this one: http://www.ebay.com/...=item3ccde7bf8c
It can also be purchased with a power supply and used as a BB DECA : http://www.ebay.com/...=item27cccf20a1
The older BB DECA that you linked to (also available on ebay) with the green label splitter will work fine though with your HR24.
