1. Is wireless sufficient to stream movies from DTV? I have Netflicks and stream movies from them through my PS3 with no problem. But I read somewhere that wireless doesnt work well with VOD.
2. If I do this, should I use DTVs wireless adapter ($100) or buy my own?
3. Should I attempt the install myself, or have DTV do it? I am pretty tech oriented and set up my home network and Home Theatre myself.
4. Do I have to be connected to a phone line?
5. Is it worth the cost to do it ?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks in advance

Any wireless adapter will work but the Cisco/Linksys one from DIRECTV is self-configuring with the HR24.
If you have networking skills you could do it yourself. However if you bring in DIRECTV they will use the coax line for networking, hook one box to your router that converts from ethernet to coax (a "DECA") you'll be able to do multi-room viewing effectively.
No phone line is required if you're networked. Even if you're not it's really only used for PPV purchases.
It is definitely worth the cost.
