    I've got two HR-24's connected with whole home.

    I saw what (I think) is a new menu choice under Settings, Whole Home, External Device, Current Program (Allow/Block). This choice seems to imply that you can watch a program being viewed on DVR (1) from DVR (2) without having to record the program on DVR (1). How do you set this up and view the Current Program?

    External Device and Current Program apply to things like the iPad app. It can control the TV remotely and also display what is currently being watched. You can't grab it remotely without having a GenieGO and recording part of it first.
