    Just had my system upgraded to MRV. Two HR20-700's, one H24, and two H21's.

    I get the menu option for On Demand on the two DVR's but not on any of the HD receivers. I thought DoD was accessible from all units in the system. Is this wrong?

    Once an On Demand is downloaded, it is then viewable from the receivers.
    Since the non DVRs don't have a place to store anything, this has to be first done on the DVR.

    DoD is only available on the DVRs because it is a download and you need to store it somewhere. Once downloaded, you can view it on any receiver.

    I realize that the shows need to be downloaded to the DVR's. I was under the impression that with the DECA network that all receivers would have access to the DoD menu and even the non-DVR's could select a video and then choose which DVR on which to store it.

    So far the software only allows remote recording from the guide/SAT feed. Whether you're using DECA or ethernet networking isn't the issue.

    I was under that impression also.
    Seems like a simple enough fix... pick your DoD program then choose the dvr if multiple exist.

    The receivers were designed long before MRV was available and I'm sure no one thought they would need to access DOD since they have no hard drive. Maybe future models will have that capacity.
