    Welcome to the Field Trials....

    These are the general rules that pertain to all field trials:

    1. Please do not speak or write about the Coax Networking Adapter outside of this particular forum.
    2. Communication between DIRECTV and you all will be done through this forum. If you need to contact a CSR for any reason, please contact a DIRECTV moderator for clarification before doing so. At any rate, please do not say anything to a CSR about the Coax Networking Adapter.
    3. The Coax Networking Adapters are provided for testing purposes. That means DIRECTV can send software updates for any reason, at any time, or request the Coax Networking Adapters back for any reason, at any time.
    4. You're invited to participate in writing the DBSTalk.com "First Look" for this field trial, or even write your own. However, we ask that we have the opportunity to review anything you write, both for accuracy and confidentiality, and we ask that you wait until the field trial is over to publish.

    These terms remain in force even after the general public has started receiving the Coax Networking Adapters until you are specifically told that the field trial is over.

    If you are have questions about any of the above rules... contact a DIRECTV moderator (Greg Alsobrook, Michael D'Angelo, Doug Brott, Tom Robertson or Stuart Sweet).

    Enjoy!

    Honored to join this distinguished group.

    Silence is golden! :)

    Glad to partner with someone on a First Look...any takers?

    Obviously, that will be a bit down the road, but at least we can plan ahead for the time this can be made public. Having done 2 before and helped with a 3rd....more than willing to participate.

    Great - unless someone else wants to join in...why don't we plan to do it once we get further down the road - the Mods can give us guidance on the timing later.

    Should we start a thread to discuss what we think this adapter will look like?

    I was thinking a new SWM, but now not sure?

    We may want to wait until the Mods have a bit more info....but I suspect we may be seeing these delivered in the next week or two if this thread is now open. Mods will guide us as always. I do like the idea of a thread to discuss "anticipation" of sorts.

    My guess is something that looks perhaps like a Sonora Power Locker device. It likely will require a power supply of some sort, I would think....but I could also could be totally wrong. :lol:

    I was thinking the same thing about starting a thread, but I didn't want to step on any toes.

    This one will be fun to test! Hoping that it greatly simplifies networking for "network novices" frustrated by wireless networking and powerline adapters.
