Ok, I hate to be this person, but I have over several hours reading and researching and I'm still confused as ever. I am currently with Dish and have one VIP722k DVR. I live in a ranch home and only have one RG6 going from the attic to the basement where my DVR is located. The distribution panel for the rest of the home cable is also in the attic. All RG6 and Cat6 that I ran/fished myself to each bedroom. Right now I have the DVR splitting HDMI to our basement family room and to the main level living room. Mainly because we aren't usually watching something different in each room. We have extra RF dish remotes. Does the HR34 come with RF remote or remotes? We also have the tuner 2 feeding the rest of the bedrooms in the house with RF remotes. I also watch my DVR recordings on my PC and Ipad with the Sling adapter. I know you can watch select shows on D*'s website but do they allow watching your DVR'd programs remotely? My question is I'm seeing acronyms CCK DECA etc. and I have no clue what I need. I think minimally I am wanting an HR34. But does this have an SD output for tuners in the home like the Dish box where you tune to a cable channel and you can watch and control tuner 2? Do I need extra to watch recordings on my iPad like the CCK DECA? If I wanted to add an HD tuner and separate our living spaces from the same channel what would I need for that? How much extra per month? What does Whole Home DVR service allow? Sorry if these are dumb questions, I haven't found exact answers and hate calling in. Thanks!
