Just had MRV installed 2 days ago and am having problems being able to resume a recording on the bedroom HD DVR after watching a portion of the show on my living room DVR. I have 1 HR22. 1 HR23 and 1 HR21. I was watching a recorded show on my HR21 in the living room and paused it so I could resume watching in the bedroom. Went into the bedroom, selected the show I was watching in the living room and pressed resume. It went back to the beginning of the show instead of resuming where I had left off. Later on I recorded another show on the HR21 receiver in the living room and watched it pretty much to the very end. I backed it up a couple of minutes stopped it and went into the bedroom to see if I could resume watching it. There was no resume selection to highlight...only play.

I checked the other HR23 in my office and it seems to work fine.

Before I call Directv to have someone come back I want to see if someone might have some suggestions or confirm there might some glitches.

most likely just a glitch, calling someone back out will not get you very far more than likely. If the list is showing up then there is nothing wrong with install (maybe software of receiver issue)

Thanks for the quick response. My HR22 and HR21 both have the latest software version 0x59e.

Does the show playback fine and is the problem repeatable with other shows, also when you pause the show in the room it was recorded on do you hit exit?

You can not pause in one room and resume watching in another room even though that's what their ad says. If you are watching a live program you have to hit "record" then go to "list" and select that program to play. You can then "stop" watching or turn off the DVR. When you go to the other room and select that program it will ask you if you want to resume or start over. f you are watching a recording in the first room then you can "stop" watching and go to the other room and resume.

I wish they would redo that ad. It just causes confusion when people actually try to use it. It works great, just not as easily as they say it does.

"PAUSE" is a misnomer... You can STOP viewing A RECORDED program and RESUME from where it was stopped on ANY WHDVR connected HD receiver.

So if watching something in room "A" live and you decide you wish to continue in room "B" you need to press the record button and then either start viewing (the recording by picking from the list) from beginning and use the trickplay buttons to advance to where you wish to resume then stopping playback. OR just start in the next room and use trickplay to get to your desired resume point.

The ads though "true" in concept are a big stretch in practice.

Trickplay BTW has some features it took me years to discover. The 30 second "slip/skip" buttons act as marker advance buttons when in a FF or FR mode. Pressing one of the "skip" buttons while in a FF mode will advance the pointer to the next vertical mark on the progress bar. (next whole 15 minute point from beginning).

So if 45 minutes in you need to do this. Once you start viewing the recording from beginning, hit FF then the skip forward button 3 times and you'll be 45 minutes in.

Correct--You must STOP the recording - then go to the next room-select it from the play list and click resume.

Starts right where it left off :)

Another trick is that while watching a recording if you press and hold FF or RW, it will jump to the next tick mark, so you don't need to hit FF and then Skip.
