Sorry, but I removed a couple posts as they had nothing to do with the topic "2nd Gen DECA"

The HR34 includes an internal DECA, and I do not see DIRECTV spending money they do not need to spend.

So, (unless you have other receivers that need them) I'm guessing no.

Looks like they are now available on Solid Signal. Only $49.99 each (ouch).

DIRECTV DECA II Ethernet to Coax Adapter DECA (DCA2SR0)

On a side note, they are also having a sale on the older units.

One of my receivers did need it(HR20-700) but it ended up being an old version.

I like the looks of that, much sleeker and more modern looking than the white DECAs.

Nice First Look!

I think Solid Signal was selling the white DECA's for $50 a few months ago. They dropped the price to $20 about alittle over a month ago. Looks like the new black ones have popped up on ebay now.
