While using another DECA this way, isn't "supported" [by DirecTV] you shouldn't have a problem.TheGreek said:** I did hours of research and due diligence before posting.
I have a DECABB1R0 (Black BB DECA) in my office next to my router. In my living room the coax plugs directly into my HR-24 with MRV. Yesterday I purchased a green-label SWM (splitter) so that I could send 1 line into the HR-24 and the second into another DECABB1R0 and then into a switch so I could plug in some other components.
All the setups I've seen use a DECA1MR01 (white) on the receiver side with a PI. Is my logic flawed that a DECA is a DECA. Black or white they do the same thing and rather than buying a DECA1MR01 with a PI I can just buy a second DECABB1R0 for the receiver/split side?
Thanks in advance and please forgive me if I messed up the terminology. I'm new to the whole satellite world (about 6 hours).
The black one comes with a PI, while the white ones are intended to be connected to the receivers that don't have a DECA internally, and get powered from the receiver. If you use a white DECA, there is a PI made for them, if not being powered by a receiver.
"DECA is DECA", until you find the wireless DECA.
