As Dettxw posted in #10 above, a WCCK and the Cx1 works wirelessly (on its coax) or on the normal coax location.

There IS! See post #10 in this thread :)

 

I say that tongue in cheek but that is the closest you will get. . .

 

From what I have been able to deduce, DirectTV has engineered a solution leveraging its own 5Ghz network with some interesting SSID we'll call them "features" to protect theft of service. 5Ghz is nice in that little here in the US uses those frequencies. 5Ghz is not so nice as the higher frequency is more impeded by pesky things like walls, immobile family members, and such.

 

In a densely populated small personal residence situation the WVB coupled to a wireless client is likely a perfect solution. If you are living in a large residence with a solid 2.4Ghz wireless N network perhaps the suggested method in post #10 is the ticket. In that realm you can go either way wired or wireless. This assumes you understand networking and can detrmine and resolve potential conflict resolution, evaluate signal strengths, set up access points if needed.

 

Using the WVB and the C41W you need not have nor need to know anything about that and it would be up to the installer to locate the components properly for you so. . .

 

What the C41W would appear to be is a technical triumph in many regards. As a new product in test, it is possible testers may have gotten some different version/build iterations to test through in order to determine what would be best in the real world as opposed to the drawing rock. Ultimately whatever makes the initial public release will be the true test. What the jungle drums have said may or may not be reflective of the initial product release.

 

I look forward to the day it is available.

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a Genie client that could be both wired AND wireless?  So, for everyday use, it could be plugged in with hardwired coax, but for special occasions, like an outdoor movie night, you can go wireless. 


What's a dazzling urbanite like you doing in a rustic setting like this?

I hope the person who wins the auction is in a test market, otherwise it won't be activated.

I'll go even further and say that the distributors who sell to DIRECTV dealers aren't selling them yet either.

Just ordered my c41w to replace one wired client. $99. flat including server and install. So cool. I guess no self install allowed if going through directv.
