...DirecTV says I need a CCK (Cinema Connection Kit). They say I have one, it's on my equipment list. Not impossible, but I've spent a long time working in electronics and I don't remember that. What I remember is that the purple Ethernet cable connected to the ATT modem/router directly. --> Does this thing REALLY need an external box to connect to the internet? Or was their support person just not expert enough? My main point for connection is I wanted to watch Michael Cain in "Dear Dictator"
