I had MRV installed by directv yesterday,works great except im unable to access on demand on my 4 non DVR's, only works on my two DVR's. My hr23 is right next to the router, the coax comes into a new directv provided splitter, one line goes to deca to hr23 with ethernet connected to hr23 from deca, the other line goes to a deca that goes to the power outlet with a ethernet to my router. Agaim im able to get mrv on all 6 recievers and on demand only on the dvr's, im assuming you still tune to ch 1000, 1100 for ondemand stuff from non dvr's? any suggestions, thanks

Right. OnDemand requires a DVR to hold the downloaded shows. But once downloaded to a DVR, your HD Receivers can access those recordings via MRV. You can also set up those OnDemand recordings using your DirecTV.com account if access the DVR is a problem.

HD DVRs: HR44 + AM21; HR24
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver
Mobile Devices: Nomad

thanks, for some reason i thought you would be able to access the ondemand page,schedule a download to a dvr, then be able to watch it via mrv. I knew i would ask a dumb question!!
