    Hi folks,

    I'm new and apologize in advance if this question has been beat to death, but here goes...

    I have an HR21 and have networking set up via hardline. The HR21 sees Vista machines on the network and I'm sure I can get it to see the XP machines as well by following the guides posted on here.

    My question is this: Is there a way at present--or in the foreseeable future--to share recorded material between HR2X DVRs that are on the same network? Sure would be cool if the bedroom DVR could access (hi-def) material recorded on the DVR in the living room.

    Thanks for all insight...

    Welcome to DBSTalk

    At some point MRV (multi room viewing) will be added and you will be able to stream programs from one HD DVR to another over your home network. But when it will be added we don't know.

    You can do a search for MRV to read all the post on here about it. But the thing you have to remember is anything you read right now about it is 100% speculation. The only thing we know for sure is it is going to happen but other than that DirecTV has not said anything about how it will work and be setup.

    Ah, to have MRV. It's one of the big ones a bunch of us can't wait for.

    I want my MRV!!!

    If DirecTV would give the public access to the OS, I'll bet we would have MRV within a month or two.
