    Can you see what you already have scheduled to record?
    What happens if what you book on the web conflicts or duplicates something you already have setup?
    Can you cancel a pre-existing recording order?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    Did you see the screen shot where you can set up the priority? I think there was normal and high.

    Here it is. That should explain it. While I think it would be awesome if you could see your to do list, I like the options it gives you if you can't.

    So, any idea when we'll get this?

    The online system doesn't tell you what you have already scheduled.

    If you have conflicts on your system.... you can tell the remote book to be put at standard priority (which means your conflicts will have higher priority)... or at HIGH priority, which means it will bump conflict #2.

    What if you have more than one HR20? Does it schedule on both?

    Thank you...I guess I read your post just as you were putting it up the screenshot wasn't there (or my browser didn't show it).

    Thanks again!

    There is a drop down list at the top...
    You can select which compatible unit you want to schedule it on.

    But it looks like you need to know the access card # is that correct?

    If so is there any way to name the receiver's?

    IIRC - They do drive off the "nick name" you assign to them in your hardware profile.

    My guess is it's gonna go by the description from your online account. Mine would be bedroom, office, living room, and media room.

    Edit: Earl beat me by a keystroke.

    They do not list OTA channels in the DirecTV listing. I only get locals from the digital OTA signals. They will need to add this capability to the online guide.

    Was there an answer to this question? I may want to download to more than one unit. I guess one way is to run the selection process again for the other unit.

    Yes, I answered it...
    Notice the drop down list at the top...

    You can only schedule it for one system at a time.

    I know there is no time limit on this, but how will this be opened up to us? Will the web system know who we are by access cards? Or will our online usernames have to be flagged for access to this?

    I would love this, as I used this all the time on my series2 tivo!
