Can I connect my HD DVR to the Internet with just an Ethernet cable?


Yes, but please note that if you have Whole-Home DVR service or plan to get Whole-Home DVR service, you cannot use this method of connecting your HD DVR to the Internet. Whether you have Whole-Home DVR service or not, we recommend that you use the DIRECTV CINEMA™ Connection Kit to connect your HD DVR to the Internet. Learn how
