Being a Dish Network subscriber for 22 years, I am not familiar with the cabling setup for DirecTV (other than the basic RG6Q cable goes to a dish outside) and I'm trying to help out a friend. She went from DirecTV to Dish to U-verse and then back to DirecTV after AT&T acquired DirecTV. She recently had her U-verse upgraded to Fiber to the Home and now has a new Router in her guest bedroom. Also there is a MoCA interface to put the U-verse LAN on to the DirecTV coax (I'm assuming) located next to the Router. I'm not sure if that was put in when the switch from U-verse to DirecTV occurred or when the upgraded U-verse was installed. Here's the thing: when I helped set up her entertainment center a few years back, I used an spare AirPort Express to place an LAN connection behind the entertainment center for a streaming box and the Denon AVR that has Internet capabilities as well as remote control via an App. With the new Router and with the AirPort Express being orphaned, it no longer functions as a reliable Wireless Bridge and so the streaming box and Denon are isolated. When I saw the MoCA box I thought it might be possible to use a MoCA drop in-line with the DirecTV DVR (not sure of the model) and tap into the LAN that way. I guess I should add at this point that the TV room is the old breezeway between the house and the garage, so it has no crawlspace and there is no way to snake a CAT5 cable through the wall from the limited attic as there is a large window in the way. So, can I get a in-line MoCA tap to attach an Ethernet cable to and present the LAN to the switch in the entertainment center? Does it need to be DirecTV-specific, or is it standard MoCA? Thanks for your suggestions and help! Edit: I see I will need to identify the actual model number(s) of the DirecTV equipment because it may be DECA that I need to deal with. I know she called it a Genie and she has a Genie box in the Master bedroom if that helps.
