    If you had a SWM-8, they might let you do it yourself. But, they appear to be more strict with people who have SWM-16's (even though it shoudn't matter because you're not attempting to add a new tuner.

    For a white or black deca, you need a power inserter.

    In case anyone is still looking into this Samsung has finally updated their site to list the 2013 RVU compatible TVs, and yes it does look like the UN32F5500 I was recommending earlier is RVU out of the box, as well as many of the other (if not all) SmartTVs.

    http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber/popup/iframe/pop_troubleshooting_fr.jsp?idx=411420&modelname=&modelcode=&session_id=&from_osc=&__ncforminfo=4ofJ7nWyWewiorGTqC-hnOJo2p8QbYYD9s0pMh3sYEXtvUz6k_puFwEGltN721na6rjC-Q5b6RECEhtF07dW7kEHeL5bqlfsmifQxXd1_-8%3D

    You would need this power supply for a receiver DECA.
    http://www.amazon.com/POWER-SUPPLY-PS18DER0-03-NETWORKING-DIRECTV/dp/B003ZMH6DO/ref=pd_sim_pc_6


    Or you could get one of the old broadband DECAs that came with their own power supply.

    As someone that 'believed' Samsung in the past about a set they said would support RVU and then they changed their mind I would wait until it shows up listed at http://www.rvualliance.com/products or another member says that they have one and it works.

    I think there's a difference in Samsung's blanket "all Smart TVs" claims, and them actually listing model numbers with firmware versions, but I can understand your skepticism. Which model did you have an EH5300?

    Yep, it would show a HMC in the source list but when selected I got a not authorized message, not the normal screens for adding a client.

    Well I guess I won't worry about having the right hardware since you have to have a truck roll to setup anyways

    So I called directv to set up my Samsung. They are just going to send me out a powered deca kit free of charge through FedEx. So in a few days I will have it and will activate my tv
