To me, the ability to share tuners and disks as well as viewing throughout the house is the most important enhancement DirecTv has provided us since I've been customer (2005) -- other than HD of course. I know others have other enhancements at the top of their list but this is mine. $3/month is a bargain. I always knew I'd pay. $3/month is well worth it to me and I view it as a fee to pay for the development effort. When the dust settles, I'll probably upgrade to DECA too. Right now, my wired network is working very well.
