I am about to upgrade to a Genie (HR-44) and would like to get all my wiring laid out/planned out. I am also upgrading to a wireless client. The attached picture shows my current and future wire diagram. Any input is greatly appreciated. My intend is to minimize the number of wires/modules etc. Specifically, I am wondering how to connect my internet router when I switch to the HR-44 as the DECA module is no longer required. Do I just plug the router into the HR-44? 

 

On a relate yet different matter....Since the HR-24 has a built-in DECA, can I add a DECO before the HR-24 and use the ethernet output for my Xbox? Would the HR-24 still receive an internet signal or would the cascading DECAs prevent that from happening?

Yes, the Genie can act as a bridge to all your units, with just the ethernet cable into it.

 

Since you'll have a coax to each unit, you'll decrease wiring, as the ethernet cables can be deep sixed with whole home service. I'd recommend avoiding wireless anything if you can.

You will need a 2 way splitter and a  DECA BB (with power supply). This is considered "unsupported" in DirecTV eyes.  I will string an ethernet cable to the Xbox.  and I would stay away, very far away from the wireless clients, at least from now.
