Managed switch with DVR STB

I have an ethernet cable from the RG to a network port in my family room.  Then an ethernet cable to the DVR STB.  If I split that signal using a managed switch, like a Netgear GS105Ev2, and have a ethernet cable to the DVR STB, TV and Roku, will the DVR STB work or not?

 

I've read through multiple entries in this forum and I think this solution will work.

 

Thanks

What you describe should be fine.  Do not connect a Wireless Access Point/Repeater/Bridge to that switch, and you should be fine.
