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

Ok that makes perfect sense.

 

But why not have the HR24 Deca not disable.

Problem solved everywhere, and you can pick any room with Deca ready receivers that is close to ethernet and boom bang done!

I think is a physical limitation, not software

What, are kidding me? If you can run a freaken coax you can run an Ethernet cable.

is not only about running, but terminating and most important, understanding how ethernet cable works.

To be truthful but, put it bluntly in today's world you have to assume everyone is dumber than a box of rocks and go with the best way to design and install a system that accomedates that. To the average customer all they know is the push the power button on the remote and TV magically appears, if not then they make a phone call..

is not only about running, but terminating... 

I have terminated ethernet cables probably a couple of hundred times but I still have a diagram of the colors and where they go in the connector that I reference anytime I do it. Coax is way easier to train thats for sure.

Ethernet cable should always be terminated to a jack or SMB, is literally more expensive for an installation company to terminate ethernet cable using modular plugs (RJ11), for that they use pre-made jumpers
