Here's what I have now, two DVRs connected using DECA boxes. At each location, I have piggybacked a network switch onto the system by running the DECA Ethernet cable to the switch and then running a cable back to the receiver. This gives me wired Ethernet to each location to use with TV, Bluray, Sonos, etc. DirectV keeps wanting to upgrade me to a Genie, but I am afraid I'd lose the ability to do this. Is there some way to put in a Genie and keep my setup using the switches? 1) Can I just use the DECA with the Genie, running the DECA coax into the Genie and tapping the Ethernet port on the DECA for my switch? Does the DECA actually block the Ethernet signal passing through, so the Genie wouldn't get that data? If the DECA passes the whole signal from the SWM and also sends the Ethernet component to its port, this should work. 2)The Genie gets the Ethenet signal on the coax, with a built-in DECA to split it out internally. Can I connect a network switch to the Ethernet port on the back of the Genie and do as I am now for other Ethernet connected devices? Or is it an input only port, though I don't know if there is such a thing? 3) I'd love to have any other solutions others have used. I would hate to lose my "whole home ethernet". Any help appreciated.
