    please take consideration before putting down my ideas.

    1st idea. Is it possible for DTV to create an application that allows me to Manage my play list from my computer? so i can pull up all my DVRs and drag and drop my show series from DVR to another.

    2nd idea. Is it possible to possibly block 1 show on a DVR to be shared. Instead of blocking an entire DVR? IE, lets say i record an adult movie in the bedroom. can I block that individual show and still see the programs i record in the bedroom in the living room?

    "possible" sure.
    Have no idea if or when though.

    The first idea should be to change it to MRV. Makes more sense.

    *MRV not MVR (in your title)

    both very interesting ideas, I'd love to see if they implement things like this in the future..

    Personally, I can't see how ALL home entertainment networks won't eventually have something like this (Remote management of all media stored on HDDVR's from a computer, STB, or slim client.)

    I think I'd count on #2 as a possible candidate for a future CE.. suggest it to them on Twitter! (Those suggestions actually reach someone who might be able to make it reality)
    #1 would take more time, and I'm not entirely sure D* is comfortable with an outside device (a computer) controlling (in some small manner, at least) a STB... but +2 for great ideas!

    I believe current H/HR2X parental controls will achieve what you want them to do already.

    parent controls would stop the program from being watched. but would it stop it from the title appearing in the playlist on the livingroom DVR?

    thanks xmetalx. I cant edit the title to read MRV. if an admin. could, that would be great. also, I will tweet the ideas. I understand that DTV might not be comfortable with Idea #2, but maybe they could incorporate a way for me to manage all my play list so i don't get multiple recordings. even an on-screen menu on the DVR would be great.

    tin foil hat on:

    Maybe this is a way to increase revenue by making customers buy a separate DVR for their "private" recordings. :lol:

    The Playlist would read, "BLOCKED TITLE" for the program not allowed to be viewed from the parent-controlled receiver.

    If one were to try to play it, it would ask for the four-digit pass code to temporarily unlock the receiver to play the program. Additionally, after putting in the code, pressing INFO will still produce a "Blocked Title" in the description even though the program is playing.
