    Sorry, but that is not what a BSF (band stop filter) is used for. I suggest you examine some literature on what a BSF is and does, for example this diagram (http://manuals.solidsignal.com/Band Stop Filter LR.pdf) shows when you would need to use a BSF. Might also read this thread (http://forums.solidsignal.com/showt...-of-a-Band-Stop-Filter-(Residential-customers) ). In short, only on SD receivers and/or specific receivers that need it (H20, HR20-100). Additionally, any SWiM equipment made after 2009 does not need a BSF at all.

    In this thread, when I was trying to do essentially the same thing that tw0052 is asking about, at a friend's house, I was told by veryoldschool that, if I added a coax to a wireless CCK, and then connected that coax to any receivers that don't have an internal/external DECA, then I would need to connect a BSF to each of those receiver.

    From that thread (all quotes from VOS's posts)
    If there's anyone at DBStalk who's technical knowledge I respect, it's VOS. So, until he retracts what he told me, I'm sticking with the statement that once the OP puts a CCK on his coax network, then he either needs a DECA or a BSF on all of his receivers that don't have an internal DECA.

    IOW, what Bill means in the highlighted portion of his quote above, is that by adding internet access to the two DVRs by means of the DECA (MoCA) network signal now introduced on to the satellite coax install, DECA BSFs for the cheaper option will now be needed at the inputs of the two H21s to prevent the strong (comparatively speaking) network signal from reaching their satellite tuners and potentially causing interference to them.
