... - it just happens to work (for now) too. But then...there's a reason DirecTV calls it "unsupported".
We do agree on most of the discussion but this is where I think we part company. D's chief technologist, Romulo Pontual, spent a good five or six minutes on DECA during the most recent investor briefing (see my previous post for the link and the exact point in the presentation). Did he mention anything at all about superior technology for moving video around a network or putting in place superior technology for future capabilities? No. He spent the entire time talking about the fact that it was technology that the installer community already understood and something that would be easier for them to install and support and for D to troubleshoot. Which, IMHO, is the real reason for DECA. Clearly many here disagree with that position hence the constant beating of this tired old dead horse....:beatdeadhorse:
