Sure. I get it. Most of us at DBSTalk get it. I'm sure the uber-geeks in Directv engineering get it too, personally. But DECA is designed to provide a robust networking system that is also easy for Directv to install and maintain. They are already running coax and plugging stuff into outlets for every install. That's why DECA makes sense for Directv and why ethernet jacks don't exist on the H25. If/when there is ever an HR25 or HR35, I would lay even money they won't have ethernet jacks either.
