    I would still be going wireless from the Time Capsule to the Airport Extreme. Then ethernet cable to the CCK. To my DirecTV system, it would appear hard wired....would it not? Would I not then re-run the network set-up as a wired internet connection?

    Yes, since as far as the CCK-W knows it is wired.

    But you earlier confusingly affirmed Diana's suggestion which is to forget about the AE altogether and place the CCK-W on the coax line close to a DVR, then run the ethernet cable from the CCK-W to a nearby ethernet connection on your home network.

    This would be an all wired ethernet configuration eliminating the need for a wireless hop to the Time Capsule.

    Yes, I realized that after. I can do that.

    Very much so. If you can directly wire the CCK to a router via Ethernet, that is the best way to go.
