    This probably will not affect that many people but I have noticed that only 5 networked DVR's will show up in the MRV status page in the set-up menu.

    I have also confirmed this in my H24-100 which will only show 5 networked DVR's.

    All recordings that are shared show up in the playlist. This seems kind of strange to me. Is this a limit to the GUI interface? :confused:

    Is it consistent? Which unit doesn't show?

    He's right, only 5 show up here as well. Seems totally random of which show up. But all show up in the playlist.

    What happens when you hit CHANNEL DOWN on the status screen? I'm wondering if the other receivers are there and perhaps only the vertical scroll bar is missing?

    Probably not the case, but maybe worth a try, if you haven't already.

    Just tried that but it only changes the channel in the PIP window.

    It is consistent though. I have 6 DVR's and when I check the status on each one, they all show up. When I check the status on my H24, it is always the same number. I utilize assigned IP's and the one that doesn't show is the highest number.

    When I have time, I swap IP's and see if that changes. It's not a big deal as all of the playlists show up.

    I think the limit of MRV servers is 10 DVRs.

    With 10 DVRs, that would exceed the 16 tuner limit of a SWiM16. Would the 10 servers only be possible on an Ethernet setup?

    One way would be to only enable one tuner on the DVR's...
