    I have a setup with 3 DVRs, 2 HD receivers and 1 SD receiver. The entire system, including whole house service, was working fine. I then upgraded my SD receiver with another HD DVR. Had an installer come out and also change out the SWM-8 with an SWM-16. The installer did a great job and all the receivers were working fine.

    I then scheduled a couple of recordings a few days ago. Today I realized that my existing receivers can't see the playlist on the new DVR. However, the new DVR can see the playlists of my other 3 DVRs. I rebooted the new DVR as well as a couple of other receivers but it didn't make any difference.

    Anything else I can try?

    "Dumb question": have you selected "all" under the playlist options?
    The choices are local, and all. It sounds like it's still set for local.

    Also be sure to reset ALL of your Whole Home DVRs.
