I have been told the C31 can access recordings from both the HR34 and the HR24? The whole reason why I am getting another DVR.
Has anyone had success accessing multiple DVR recordings from the C31?
Side note...pressing record doesn't enable you to rewind live TV.
I have read differently. I am not sure what exactly the purpose of the C31 is for the consumer other than to rob a tuner from a HR34 and use its disk space. I know the purpose for Directv. It is cheaper to manufacture because it lacks tuners and a hard drive. Getting another DVR seems a lot better deal to me. It is beyond me why anybody would want to give up a tuner and disk space. I am looking into adding a RAID box to my HR34 and putting a couple of 3 or 4 TB drives in it to get even more disk space and a backup.
Think about what you just said on rewinding live TV. If I have it recorded I can do anything I want with it. Your comment is assuming I didn't start the recording before the program began. How do you think the Dish Hopper is doing its tricks on network TV? It can do that because it is always recording network stations in the background.
BTW, the C31 isn't officially out yet, although there is someone selling them on eBay. Directv is "supposed" to release it sometime this week. So nobody can really answer your question as to whether a C31 will see DVRs other than a HR34. And LOL, my advise on any info from a Directv CSR based on experience is to "trust but verify".
