    Hello all!

    I just had the official install of MRV done by Directv... nice upgrade from my clunky unsupported wireless setup that kept freezing.

    3 HD DVRS.. three different rooms, seemless integration and functionality. Nice!!!

    I've seen posts indicating that eventually we might get the option to schedule recordings remotely from one DVR on the home network to another, but so far no news. I know this can be done from an HD receiver and from a computer, but being able to do this from a DVR would be the icing on my MRV cake....

    I've searched, but haven't seen a thread officially discussing this....

    Is DVR remote scheduling through MRV capability coming soon?

    Thanks!!

    We don't know when it might come, but something a lot of us would like, as well as the ability to have collaborative scheduling.

    I was assuming this was withheld so they could move us off the current HR landscape onto their upcoming mega DVR. However the info forwarded to me from DTV on the new mega DVR states that the uber DVR technology is not compatible with the current receivers so there is no reason to withhold this feature from the current HR equipment.

    It looks like in the future and for some time after there may be 2 disparate Whole Home DVR landscapes. Depending on the costs involved and the new landscapes effectiveness it either may preclude the existing landscape or launch it's capabilities forward.
