Ok that makes more sense.
But still why not just run an ethernet, instead of running a coax, a small eithernet cable,and making and adding any CCK ?
Why not just plug and play?
Now yes Wireless makes sense but with issues and obstructions that plague many households, I'll never use it.
Running ethernet would mean an extra expense to DirecTV. they will have to train 10,000+ techs nationwide on ethernet. SO using coax made the most sense
