I am new to the fourms and after doing some searching think this is the right location to post my question.

I have two HR20-700's connected to my home network. I am wondering if there is a way to manage my recordings via my PC which is also attached to my home network. I have a large external drive connected to one of the HR20's with many recorded shows and think that a PC interface/GUI would be a much more efficient way to manage my recorded content vs using the remote. It would also be nice if I could search and schedule recordings via this link.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Jon

You can't manage recordings using the DirecTV2PC software. But you can schedule new recordings using your DirecTV.com account.
HD DVRs: HR34-700; HR24-500; (2) HR20-700 + WD eSATA 1TB drive/Antec MX1 case; HR21-700; HR21-200 w/AM21
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver; H21-100 HD Receiver

Thanks for the quick reply. That is too bad!

It would be really nice to be able to manage schedule new recordings, delete shows, manage the prioritizer and favorites from the more efficient PC interface.

Cheers
