MoCA is 1GHz with OFDM modulation.
Well, that's "not going fly" with any DirecTV system.
I thought about adding that, but this whole idea seems so "blue sky", that it didn't seem needed.
With the SWM Dish shipping in next month or so, all new installs would be MRV capable if MRV over SWM has any truth to it ...
From reading the MoCA specs and knowing the DIRECTV specs MoCA was designed to fit in that narrow space between OTA and satellite and shouldn't conflict.
So now you're telling me that an HR20/21 can output a 900 MHz signal from it's input?
Don't see MRV over rg6 happening for a while (if at all on HR2x).. SWM looks like the only way for them to comunicate and there's just not near enough SWMs out there.. Imagine the calls if it were to happen "I need a SWM NOW for MRV"
He's not saying that at all. All he's saying is that there's room, not that any current receivers can use it.
Wow! So what does it mean that DirecTV is joining the Museum of Contemporary Art?
Somebody should clue in the clueless PR department at MoCA that when they issue a press release with the acronym of their organization, that they would do well to explain who the frig their organization is…. especially when the acronym that they identify themselves by doesn’t even yield a link to their organization in the first page of results of a Google search on “MoCA”.
Did you not even open the link to the press release and look at it? They explain who they are, what they do, and how to reach them - URL included.
That I do not know. I was just indicating that the 900MHz signals wouldn't interfere with the other signals.
...so I read this and I'm thinking, why would DIRECTV be part of the Museum of Contemporary Art? Jeez, no wonder Earl hated acronyms :lol:
Ok, Ok, I can take a hint. I added back the "About MoCA" information. I hope you already know about DIRECTV.
Maybe we should have a poll - when you see a thread with a link to a press release, do you click the link or just read the quoted portions? :lol:
I always like to go to the source, but maybe I'm just special that way!
How much detail is known about the operation of SWM. Is it possible that DirecTV is using MoCA as the means for the receivers and DVRs to communicate with the SWM module? If that were the case what would stop them from using the same communication method between receivers?
This wouldn’t be too far fetched as it would keep them from having to reinvent the wheel for their communications channel to the SWM and allow them to commoditize some of the hardware in the SWM design
No, that would be a tremendous waste. MoCA is designed for streaming high bandwidth audio and video data, not low bandwidth control data.
I did, and I could have sworn that the press release at the link didn't originally have any of the "about MoCA" information. Perhaps they added it later as was done with the missing information in original post, or perhaps I just missed it.
All I know is the "About MoCA" and DIRECTV parts were there when I first posted, 12:17pm MT on the 11th.
