Ethernet for X1 DVR

Ethernet for X1 DVR

Is there any advantage to hooking my X1 DVR up to my home network via ethernet? Both TV and Internet are through Comcast. Can the DVR access anything through the network that it can't get through the cable?

All X1 DVRs have their own modem (DOCSIS) and have no use for the ethernet jack at all (disabled).
