"Needing it" and finding it useful, can be two different things.
H25, you;re right, my bad.
That's another good idea too, i might just activate the h20 and then drop the h25 for $20. All the TV's are in the same room so its not like i need the SWM's cool all home network thing.
I have 2 DVRs + H25 all next to each other, and have MRV just so I can use the H25 to control/view everything from one place.
All recording show in one list, and I can setup a recording or series link from the H25 on either DVR.
Before I got it I too said for the $3/month I'd simply use my TV input to change between DVRs, but $3/month is cheap for what I get out of it.
