FWIW, I have 6 HD DVRs and no non-DVRS. Whole Home DVR service works fine.

[quote name='veryoldschool']Each DVR is a server to a client. All the recordings stay on the server, but can be viewed from the clients. One DVR can only feed one client at a time.
If you have 3 clients and one server, the server can be used to watch it's recording [locally] and one client can watch recordings remotely, but the other two clients are SOL until the first client is done.
Change this to all DVRs and each DVR can watch its recording locally and feed one DVR remotely.
"Now" these two can also be sending out one recording [each] and also be receiving a recording [each]. So if DVR 1 has what the user at DVR 2 want to watch, and the user at DVR1 want to watch what's on DVR 2, they both can at the same time.
Have I got you completely :confused: yet? :lol:

Ichiwawa!!! Now my head is indeed spinning :grin: Thanks for the clearification VOS! :lol:

When my 3rd DVR (Hopefully a HR24) gets here next week, I'll have to do some playin' around with it, and see how it relates to the other DVR's.

My MRV (Whole Home DVR) system here seems to be working fine...so far...albeit the HR21/23 are a bit slow, but not much slower than normal. I'm really looking forward to the HR24 and it's lightning quick speed, like I read others are attesting to on this forum.

Thanks again!
