Prewiring layout with a few questions

Now, I still see the need for 2 dvrs. I don't want to sift through the playlist that my son has.

And just to remind those present, it is not possible to diplex an OTA signal through cables that are already carrying network (internet) data.
That is what I was afraid of. In the past the DirecTV installer could grab the existing prewired system and make the CATV guy run the extra wire for the internet service. Now we have a well aimed shot ....right in the foot.
Unless there is a way to get an A/B switch into the mix to allow the OTA to operate in the absence of the DirecTV signal, including the internet feed.
