    I've heard that the CSRs will not enable MRV on accounts unless they send out a tech and you pay $50 for equipment and that you need to contact DirecTV via Twitter to get around that. I'm not on Twitter - is that still the case or do the CSRs understand now they can enable without service call. Or is there another way to get MRV without going through Twitter?

    That's not totally true. If you want to use your home ethernet and have it unsupported by DirecTV....then you can have it enabled without a truck roll.

    If you want to use DECA...then yes..DirecTV needs to come out.

    You can call....email..or twitter.

    All have ad varying degres of success w/ folks here.

    I'm trying the email route. I'm sorry I didn't catch "Home Network" was Ethernet. Maybe adjust the thread title?

    What am I missing - if I want to use DirecTV on Demand, I need Ethernet to the receivers anyway, so DECA doesn't really do much for me, right?

    "Not exactly".
    When you move to DECA [connected home networking] there is a DECA to router/home network bridge, for internet access and other things like media share & DirecTV2PC, etc.

    We knew what you ment! :)
    VOS answered your question in that if you have an extra DECA near your router/internet you can connect that into your RG6 network and have internet, D*2PC and so on at each receiver!
