    as said, its about the exercise. directv is concerned about your health and wants to make sure you don't have to deal with deep leg thrombosis.

    also, if UPL sucked directv would not give it to us and make us pay for it.

    So why not make it even easier to do that? ;)

    You haven't been around long enough to know that they gave us an HR20 that sucked and forced us to pay for it.

    The HR20 has come a long, long way!

    And I'll say its not the number of dvr's, its the amount of recording space, which can be extremely large with just one dvr....

    Which is why I think any implementation that is based on how many DVRs you have, like choose which dvr playlist to see, is a total waste of time and will never be considered.. I am looking for something more than that...

    So you're saying a solution in which you could organize the playlist by DVR "Location" would be inadequate?
    I can't think of another solution...

    Well, the Directv Manager I spoke to at CES considered my Suggestion and thought it was a Great Suggestion and understood after I explained my situation with 6 DVRs and lots of recording space each with at least 1 TB of recording capacity and he made note of it and said it would be discussed at the next Friday meeting.

    It is not a Total Waste Of Time if I can Select my 2 DVRs that contain my Sports and then Scroll Down thru the Playlist to see what Sports Recording I want to watch.

    Or to Select a couple other DVRs to see General Entertainment when I and my wife want to watch those kind of shows and she is not in the mood for Sports. It gives you Options by narrowing the Playlist to just the type of content you want to bring into the Playlist to Select From!!!

    And be able to Ignore or Bypass the Kids Recordings on their DVRs but when they want to watch their stuff downstairs then we can Select just their DVRs and then scroll thru the Playlist and easily Select something that they want to watch!!!

    calm down, the capitalization and exclamation points in your speeches show that you are getting all worked up over it.

    accept the UPL (since it will not change) and a calming effect will soon overtake you.

    I am Calm but I think this is an Important Issue for those of us with Multiple DVR/Receivers with tons of recording capacity and needs to be addressed by Directv who may have not even thought of the problem.

    For those with 2 or 3 DVRs they could probably care less about it but it is a Big Deal for those of us with pages and pages of recordings to scroll thru just to find a recording that may be on Page 7.

    Eliminating Duplicates where the Original Recording is on the Local DVR would help also but there may be times when you want to view the recording that is on another DVR so there needs to be that option or ability.

    And I just love to puntuate with multiple exclamation points as it underscores the importance of how I feel about this issue.

    How do you know it will not change???

    Did you speak to someone at Directv??? I did and he said he would take it under advisement and that it was indeed a Great Suggestion and something neither he nor his subordinates had thought of.

    Alot of people said we would Never get DoublePlay and now we have it. So I am not giving up or giving in to just a Large UPL that can't be slimmed down by DVR Selectivity.

    so would you have expected someone trying to show off the company to say anything else? you believe everything politicians say in speeches? same thing really, there is no way he or she would have said "No, we are never going to change it" to your face. you were fed a line and you bought it.

    drink the kool-aid, enjoy the euphoric feeling that will envelop you.

    What an Optimist you are.

    I guess you would have been one of the Naysayers saying that Directv will Never Ever give us DLB or DoublePlay but it happened and the Naysayers slid away back to their dark cave, the Cave of Ignorance and Pessimism.

    Why wouldn't they want to Implement something that will make MRV more User Friendly and Functional??? It is in their own best interest to do so, so they can say to their competition such as Dish how much better their MRV is compared to Dish.

    I could probably accept the UPL easier if DirecTV would allow us to use the number keys to jump to letters.

    That way I could sort my list A-Z and press the "8" button to jump to shows that begin with "T".

    I suspect we have not seen the last of UPL "enhancements".
