    Very much so ;)

    As Tom said, I doubt DECA is gigabit speeds, but it is definitely possible to be faster than standard 100.

    If we did, I did not see them!

    Not sure how the DECA and network ports will be physically presented, but currently there are ports on the switch chip set that are NOT in use. It would be very simple to connect one of the unused ports up to the internal DECA connection. The problem will be the possibility of a loop back connection being made in the house. However, it can be programed to avoid that and shut a port down if it is detected.

    Please tell me that the internal pictures will be supplied by our top dog crew members so we will not have to guess on what type of networking and processor chips will be in use. I can't imagine who drove Stuart's statement about not getting a replacement unit in case someone destroyed their system! :nono2:

    ^ change to "advanced" from "edit" and it should be there.

    I can delete my posts outside of this forum. It's only here that I can't. :shrug:

    "I'd guess" the Mods didn't set this forum up with all the normal features we should have.

    Doug?

    Might just be how this sub-forum is setup. I noticed the same thing.

    Over the past few days, have been searching for all references to the BCM7400B (3/2007), BCM7335 (1/2008), and BCM7342 (9/2009).

    Few random thoughts ...

    Been many references to the DirecTV next generation box having a newer processor, with many indications that it will be one of the 3 listed above.

    The newer Dish boxes use the BCM7400B, along with a few other boxes including the Moxi DVR.

    Been some reference that the BCM7335 might be an option.

    Seems unlikely that the BCM7342 would be selected since it was just recently announced.

    1080p60 is only available on the later processor.

    Haven't found any DMIP rating for the BCM7342, while the 7400B and 7335 would be 2x-3x the performance.

    To properly support a true 16x9 HD GUI, you need one of the newer processors.

    It's possible that a newer faster processor may be under a heatsink and not clearly visible.

    The good news is that we might find out "soon" :D.

    The bad news is (unlike some previous trials), we have been strickly told NOT to open these boxes up at all...so we get to speculate longer - unless one of our Mods happens to get some inside info on the processor.

    Shucks...just when I found my Torx from before...:lol::lol::lol:

    Likely, we should be able to tell the difference...something else to look forward to...:)

    Anyone have one of those little fiber optic cameras to stick through one of the vents? ;)

    Which should be plenty fast for MRV, Directv2PC, Media Share or On Demand. I wasn't part of the DECA testing, but MoCA seems to handle all of these without any speed-related issues (unlike my experiences with wireless and powerline). As far as I can tell, DECA is essentially the same as MoCA but at a different frequency which is compatible with SWM.

    Since I can't talk about that, I'll say we'll try to get some quick pix for you guys.

    Cheers,

    If DirecTV and Broadcom were working together to develop it, it is possible it is within the design. Since we don't know when this went o the drawing board, there is no telling.

    Maybe, especially since DirecTV and Broadcom are founding members of the RVU Alliance.
