    Both HD-DVR'S are in the living room with Big TV. DVR#1 is for the Big TV and it works fine. DVR#2 is for the office where the PC and Router is. I think all is hooked up correctly,but i am not sure about the Blu-Ray. I will use the Blu-Ray for Netflex. Blu-Ray M# LG-BD550

    If you want Netflix, et al from your Blu Ray, you'll need to connect it to your router (or a switch) as well.

    You could also relocate DVR#2 to the office, connect both DVR's to ethernet and access MRV via both.

    Other than that, everything should work. Do you only have 1 HDMI input on your display? No sound system?

    Blu-ray is connected to the HDMI Switch which is connected to DVR#2 via HDMI then goes to the router via Ethernet cable. The TV in the living room only has one HDMI and the TV in the office does not have HDMI.The sound works just fine in the office,i just don't know how to connect the Blu-ray.Without moving the DVR#2 into the office, how would you connect the Blu-Ray?

    Okay, while the winter blizzard is in-progress I've been into the wine, so please excuse any stupid questions or statements in advance.

    As-is the Blu-ray will only connect via HDMI & switch to the LR TV.
    The Blu-ray has no interface to DVR #2 or the office.
    The Blu-ray also has no internet interface through HDMI.
    If you want an internet interface for the Blu-ray player then you need an ethernet connection to your Linksys wireless router that is either wired or wireless.
    If wireless then you need a wireless adapter like the WET600N.

    As I said, you need to connect the Blu Ray player to an ethernet connection if you want Netflix.

    No, I cannot as there's too many unknowns.

    I've stated the solution three times already. You need to connect your Blu Ray player to your router.

    I'm assuming that your Linksys router is attached to your ISP modem.

    So based on your diagram,i need two ethernet cables to the router. Running all of those cables was a big PITA.

    WAN on this router is Internet which is connected to Ethernet on the Modem.

    No, DVR #1 would need to be connected to the internet as well.

    Yes, that's correct.

    If you're going to use ethernet for MRV, you don't need to connect DVR #2 directly to the living room TV either.


    You'll also have to contact Directv to activate MRV which will be $3 per month.

    The TV does not need to be connected to the switch.

    If DVR#2 is not connected to the HDMI switch which is connected to the LR TV, then how can i watch recorded programs on the DVR#2? Also what is MRV?
