RVU has nothing to do with DECA. RVU is an IP based protocol and can run on any IP network. DECA is just one possbile option. Is DECA the correct route for DirecTV's RVU implimentation? absolutely. Is RVU the right choice overall? Remains to be seen, but I hope AllVid wins out in the end. Death to the proprietary STB (and proprietary servers)!
