    I am looking at coming back to DirecTV after moving and trying out Charter. The HR34-700 looks like the way to go. I would need place the HR-34 in the den and I would need two more HD boxes for bedrooms.

    I have several questions.
    I will not have any TVs that will be able to RVU so I will need HD boxes. What HD boxes should I hope to get?

    Also I noticed the fan inside the unit like most DVRs have. How hot does the HR34 get? Just out of curiosity.

    Mine running at 106f. You would be able to use any HD receiver with it (or HDDVR for that matter), except the H20. I believe the "standard" is the HR34 and H25 receivers.

    Learning how to type, or at least using spell check would help all of us reading your posts.
    The HR34 works fine as a server for MRV, so it isn't "just for" RVU TVs.

    "Remote viewing", where a client/TV requests a server to not only send programing, but its GUI too so a TV can work without requiring another receiver.
    If you know how MRV works, this will not require a receiver at the second TV.
