    Let's hope that means the HR10-250's will also receive this upgrade.

    This is going to be one of DirecTV's favorite new features for those of us who travel. :)

    Why is the guide in the first picture in the ad flipped?

    Does this require that the HR20 be connected to my wireless network? I plan to do that, but that's one of those "when I get a round TUIT" things.

    From what I know of in the CE portion, your receiver does NOT have the be networked, I believe DirecTV sends the record command down from the birds themselves. So, that's good news to a lot of people!

    Earl beat me to the answer...So, "It's what he said"

    Does this mean the DVR has to have Internet access or will the request to record be sent to the DVR via the satellite? Brochure doesn't say anything about the recorder being required to have Internet access.

    No Internet access required for the DVR. The Remote Booking signal is sent to the DVR via the satellite.

    Really, I figured this would be part of the Internet connection on the HR2Xs

    Very surprising...

    Disregard. Between the time I wrote and posted this message, I see that Earl answered the question. Oh the joys of being interrupted at work when one is trying to surf the net. :lol:
