    DIRECTV has made networking even easier with the DIRECTV Wireless Digital Cinema Connection kit! This one device will work with SWiM and legacy systems, and can be configured right from the receiver!

    Thanks go out to the field trial test group .. I've used one of these myself for several weeks now and I have to admit it's works pretty much the same way as the regular broadband adapter just without the wires connected to the router.

    My entire DECA cloud lives a wireless hop from my home network and everything is humming right along.

    This device looks like a winner from a technical standpoint! However I suspect it may be a bit pricey (>$100+), which could limit its attractiveness. If I already didn't have the same functionality I would probably get one (or more). As usual, a great first look.

    Interesting dual purpose device. In a Whole Home DVR setup, with Broadband DECA installed and white DECA attached to non Hx24 box, can the WCCK take the place of both the Broadband DECA and a white DECA by connecting the WCCK via coax to the SWiM and via ethernet to the non Hx24 box?

    Absolutely.

    I have had mine connected to a HR21-700 to act as its deca and it is also a wireless bridge to my internet connection.

    Read through the First Look and feel is as though I know all about it.
    Great work team. A super job.

    A nice addition to the Directv equipment family.

    Thanks, that's really cool. When using the coax passthrough of either this device or a power inserter, what is the signal loss? Is it similar to a 2-way splitter?

    Thanks for the first look. Looks like a winner but I agree with bobnielsen about the price.

    I don't know what the price will be but $100+ sounds kinda high to me...I've been wrong before. :grin:

    Nice job on the PDF!

    Glad I have all the tools to pull and terminate coax and cat5. But for those who don't and have their coax output by their router hardwired to a cable co for high speed Internet, this can come in handy!

    So far the reported experiences are it's rock solid.

    Several have said something similar to Carl6’s quote at the end of the First Look...once it's installed it's completely transparent. You won’t be able to tell the difference.
