    I have two hr20-700. Can i multi room both of them and share between them. Or is it just for dvr to nondvr.Right now they are both networked but don't see each other. I opted in on both of them for multi-room

    Yes, they will work together for MRV. If they cant see each other, try using static IP addresses.

    The HR20's (all HD DVR's) can view recordings from any other HD DVR. Have you run the network test to make sure that the network connection is functioning correctly? You might also try doing a reboot on both of them to see if that helps.

    You may have opted in, but did you select the option for the Playlist to show the programs on the other DVR? Bring up the Playlist and press the yellow button for the options.

    I have on demand on both and I have checked the view all option. I think it might be because on one of the dvr I have connected to a computer and shares its wireless signal. The other dvr uses the linksys WET610N wireless bridge.

    What do you mean by it shares its wireless signal? Is the other DVR connected via a cable to your wireless router? Is that router then connected to your cable/DSL modem?

    The computer is connected to the internet using a wireless connection. The dvr is connected to the computers ethernet port and shares the wireless connection that the computer is using. The computer acts as a hub.
