DirecTV and Wifi data usage

Does DirecTV use any wifi data in the background?  If so, what, how much typically?

I have satellite internet and it goes by a data plan.  I don't wany any unncessary usage.  How to I either disable or limit it?

Yes, it does! However is hard to tell how much. If you are on a metered plan, best to disconnect the DVR from the internet if you dont want any surprises.
