Ah-ha! So I've been wasting my time trying to solve a problem that didn't exist. I had seen some of the VOD stuff before, but I thought it was more from the dish.

The claim about 7000 items at no extra charge is a little dodgy, since many of them come only from premium services or PPV, but still there is a lot of stuff there to watch!

Thanks for all of the help and clarification. Maybe this thread will helps others who are confused about what the CCK does.

If you see any items listed on the VOD channels or DirecTV Cinema channel with a green checkmark, that means it has already been downloaded to your receiver and you can start to watch it immediately. All other VOD content needs to be downloaded first (or at least start downloading) before you can watch it.

The CCK is an adapter or coupler if you will that allows two way passage of Ethernet traffic through coax (DECA) to traditional cat{X} cabling and equipment.

Nothing more than that.

Go fast, turn left, repeat until done.

Not meaning to be argumentative but not necessarily. Having the radio on and "listening", which I believe is the default, is not the same as having the radio off. I wanted to make sure that it was possible to turn the radio off completely.
It is all moot anyway as since there is no $ advantage to me between buying the wireless CCK from DirecTV (the only option from them) or buying the wired CCK from ebay I will just get the wired version from ebay and not have to worry about it.


How much is the wired unit on e-bay??

I just bought the wireless CCK from D* for $25

Probably about the same. The wired works exactly the same as the wireless except that it must be hardwired. The wireless can work wired or wireless and also can work as a pass through in that it doesn't need its own private coax cable.
