So, the technology in use hasn't changed, so the thread is still valid.I never said it wasn't, I never said Ethernet is better for the purpose of video streaming between DirecTV boxes, nor is MoCA/DECA inherently better, but I do make reference that it may be better for a lot of people.They're probably referring to the prioritization features built into MoCA/DECA, and if you get anywhere to approaching the capacity of a network, that is important, mind you Ethernet can support that as well, but it is harder to configure (and most home network don't support it).

Mind you from the flip side, if the network is setup properly with more than enough bandwidth (which a Gigabit network would be true for almost all home setups), prioritization no longer has an effect.

Just to make it clear one more time, I'm not saying Ethernet is better for most people in practice, just making some comments on the base technology.

Well, you had me fooled when you stated:

A properly setup ethernet network will always outperform the coax network.

It's clear you're versatile with ethernet, as are a lot of folk in the forum. But for the average user, and even those with a lot of networking experience, DECA has a lot of advantages.

The system is designed to transport the video across the coax without issue .. End of story .. If I was doing your movers and you demanded the use of Ethernet .. I wouldn't do the movers because of the risk of sin
