Is this correct?

1-Power insert off SWM output 1 connected to power outlet and HR44
2-Ethernet cable from router connect to HR44 ethernet port
3-SWM output 2 line connected to DECA, connected to HR22
4-DECA ethernet line connected to HR22 ethernet port

I don't want to use splitters as these lines are already set on current setup

Will this work for all Directv service including whole home?

With this setup make sure the SWiM-8 module is the newer "green" labeled type of course.

Also if you have an AC outlet near the SWM8 switch, I would connect the power supply to the legacy port #3. I don't like "shrugs" to have the power supply behind any receiver
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
