Hold on again.. There is no need to bother with a bsf, because your issue is you don't want the one dvr to be seen by the others correct? That's a simple setting inside the dvr. And it will leave internet access for on demand available if you did decide you wanted it at some point, but you wouldn't have to use it either. This would allow you to control it via an ipad still to, where as if you used a bsf, you wouldn't. Not that you would, its just there's no reason to use a bsf if its simply to isolate the recordings to the one dvr...Plus, should everyone else go on vacation for a week and you have the house to your self, you could change the setting back and have the recorded stuff everywhere for the week.. But it can only be changed at the dvr with the recordings on it.
lol. I appreciate what you're thinking, but I think you missed my reply to carl6.
For me personally, the BSF is exactly what I am looking for, and a beautiful solution. I am looking to completely isolate one or more receivers (not clients) from the internet/network.
The tech might have BSFs on his truck. They A/V adapters for the clients are not included. You can get them for $10 from Solid Signal.
I will definitely be checking on the BSF's. Not that $3-$6 is a lot of money, but hey, it's money. I did not know the A/V adapters weren't included. The tech gave me 2 of them, so, hooray? Unless they show up on my bill, then less hooray...
As for the barrel connectors in the wall plates being removed, that sounds like shoddy work. Did the tech run new cable through the wall plates from your splitters to the receivers?

The tech did not run new cables. He did put new compression ends on the pre-existing cables. He then put his barrel connectors on those cables, and made smaller cables to run to the Genie & each one of the clients.
OOOOHH, New Question time!
The BSF only strips the MoCA (or DECA, or whatever) signal from the cable, right? The rest of the transmission still stays in place? So, I can still use a Single Wire on the DVR's?
Whereas with my Stand-alone SWM idea, I was going to have to use 2 wires from the legacy ports.
That's all for me tonight. I have been told it is time to go to bed (and watch the new TV service). I will definitely be checking back here. Thanks to everyone, but especially The Merg for persistently answering questions, inkahauts for persistently trying to convince me to take off my tin foil hat, and carl6 for very thoroughly explaining how the devices have to be connected!
I'd agree with that, but the OP did say that he didn't want the other receivers to have Internet access either. If that's the case and he doesn't want to use Parental Controls to prevent Internet access/PPV programming, then the BSF is the only viable solution at that point.
To steal a line I read before... "Bingo!"
