MRV- how many playbacks at a time?

    Hi all,
    Tried searching, but found conflicting info or not quite what I was looking for.

    We recently added another DVR to bring our total to 3- HR24s hooked up via MRV. It seems like I can only play one recording at a time from each DVR if we are watching remotely?

    Recordings are on DVR1, but its not physically being watched.

    We are trying to stream a show from DVR1 to DVR3 and someone else is trying to watch a different show from DVR1 to DVR2. We get a message stating something to the effect that only one will work at a time. Is that right?

    correct a hr2x can play one recording locally and stream one to something else and that is it. A HR 34 can stream to multiple things at once.

    I think you can stream a show from DVR1 to DVR3, and at the same time stream a show from DVR2 to DVR1. But any given HR2x DVR can only be the server for one outgoing stream at any given time.
