Can a Default DVR for Recording be Specified on the DirecTV.com Website?

    Hi,

    When I use the DirecTV.com website to search for and record programs, it always lists my DVRs in alphabetical order by Location Name; thus, the first one is always selected by default.

    But that DVR is not my preference and I'm always having to select my other DVR, so is there a way to set the default DVR? I searched but could not find anything, so before giving up, I thought I'd ask the fine folks here.

    Thanks!

    I know you can set up the DirecTV® mobile apps with a default DVR, but I don't think you can do the same on the website

    Since the are is alphabetical order, you may be able to add an "a" to the desired receiver to make the default. Ex: aMaster Bedroom

    Yeah, for the apps, it definitely allows you to specify the default but I haven't seen any such option for the website, either.

    Oh well, as you suggested, time to do that location rename. ;)

    Thanks!
