    System....
    2 hr20-700's w deca's
    1 h21-100 w/ deca
    1 h21-200 w/deca
    2 D12's w/BSF's
    DCCK-W
    SWM3 with power inserter between lnb and input to a 8 way splitter.

    Internet and D* on demand works on all hd receivers and dvr's. Dvr's both record ok and play on 1 dvr and both HD receivers have all content from both DVRs. One DVR's playlist only its own recordings. Both dvr's wholehome are set to share all and delete by all.

    Why does the one dvr not get the other dvr's playlist? But works fine in all other respects? Also the DCCK-W is connected to its own port o. The 8-way splitter.

    Thanks in advance...

    Most likely because the settings on that one DVR are only set to show Local Playlist.

    On that DVR, go to Playlist, then change Options (with the Yellow button), go to Filter by Playlist, and make sure All is selected.

    Thank you!
    I will give that a try when I get home! Makes sense to me!

    I went to play list, pressed the yellow button, and there was no such option about viewing.

    I did go to settings, to wholehome, to status, and it displayed ....

    Wholehome Authorized ..... And
    No Networked DVRs Found

    Interesting, as the H21 recievers get data from both DVRs, so both are networked and DVR ONE gets data from DVR TWO ... But not the other way.

    Any suggestions? Or any other way to set the 'view list' parameter?

    The options I get on pkaylust when pressing the yellow button are ...

    MARK PROGRAM TO DELETE
    SORT PROGRAMS BY CATEGORY
    CHANGE ORDER OF PLAYLIST
    OPEN/CLOSE ALL

    Investigated all four options and none gave me the playlist data from DVR One.

    Thanks!

    Run Network setup, not necessary to change anything, then if no joy, reboot both DVRs. Good luck!

    On all of my DVRs, I have "FILTER BY PLAYLIST" at the bottom (follows the "Open/Close All").

    If you haven't done it already, do a reset (Menu, Settings & Help, Reset).

    I have done the 'red button' reset on both DVRs and no difference.

    I will do the 'Network Setup' on DVR Two (the one without the DVR One playlist data) then a reset as described above!

    Thanks!

    After doing above, the filter playlist option showed up!

    Thank you, as it is all good now!
