What if DirecTV only charged those that used DECA for MRV but not those that used their own setup? There would be a hue and cry, just as there is now.
Then a rush for the DIY networking, cancellation of the paid MRV, and then what? Disconnecting and sending the DirecTV supplied SWM,DECA and all related geegaws back to DirecTV. The issues are endless.
How will Dtv control who pays and who doesn't? So they charge everyone, or just those that have the DirecTV networking supplied units will be able to get MRV, and those that have DIY networks won't.
Just because one's system is networked now doesn't mean entitlement to MRV.
Why are there so many posters making this harder than it is?
You charge a monthly Fee that allows you to OPT-IN so you can enjoy the MRV Service and help defray the costs of the MRV Software. If you decide you don't think it is for you, then you just never OPT-IN and you will not be charged for it.
If you can't set up a Wired/Wireless Network, then you call Directv and they will install a Deca System and you pay for the equipment/installation.
Why should I help pay for someone's system who can't install a Network similar to mine when they didn't help me pay for my Network Environment?
How do you control it? By only allowing those who OPT-IN to be able to have access to the MRV Service. Very Simple.
