That is correct it has no tuner and is useless without an HR34.
I guess more precisely you could say the C31 has no "satellite" RF tuner in it.
But like satellite receivers with internal DECAs it does have an RF tuner for DECA signals which AIUI nowadays operate on DIRECTV's assigned MoCA "E" band. Any one of 5 overlapping channels with center frequencies between 500-600 MHz.
That's 50 MHz (± 25 MHz) bandwidth per channel at 25 MHz per step under the MoCA 1.1 standard.
I guess that's why the response curve for the DECA BSF is between 475-625 MHz then.
