I know that DirecTV will only support DECA for MRV, but a network (LAN) connection still works for the HR20,21,22, and 23 DVRs. You may want to make some sort of note to that affect.

Agreed.

Right now according to the chart is says the HRXX's (except 24) need Deca. That's not accurate.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Well, then it's a very nice chart that apparently only you understand the rationale behind.

Maybe you should have waited to post the chart until a time when you would be able to comment.

As it stands now, your chart is not accurate, and therefore of no real use.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

The official support path is DECA .. so from a practical point of view, DECA is required for MRV networking.

If you have a home networking setup .. you can use it.

Then the chart is 100% correct for supported networking.

so perhaps it should be labeled as such, and maybe a separate chart for real life usage.

It's not like this Chart is posted on D*'s website where that might make sense.

People are going to come here for information on MRV. If they look at that chart, they're going to assume they have to have Deca for MRV. That's not true.

It may be a useful tool for many, but it will also give the wrong information to many others (and therefore be useless). So, why post it here?

I would be inclined to agree. The rather snippy sounding "No comment" will only lead to confusion (at least I'm confused). And clarifications by non-OP are by implication irrelevant so the level of confusion remains.

DECA is still the right answer ..

The chart stays .. There is no reason to add "Home networking works" because quite frankly there are a gazillion different ways to do home networking and there's a good chance that many of them really don't work.

Besides, folks are going to ask about what DIRECTV supports .. The above charge is accurate.

That being said .. Your comments have been noted .. Let's move on ..

I will go out on a limb here a bit and suggest that the home networking option was a result of postings here and isn't something widely accepted from DirecTV. Their idea/plan/support is for DECA.
Doug has confirmed many times that "we" won't be required to change to DECA, but for "general consumption" DECA networking is the what DirecTV wants customers to use.

Kinda makes me wonder why they didn't exclude the ethernet ports on the H/HR24's.
