Just had an HR34 installed with 2 clients to an existing SWM16 setup. My two legs are balanced and have 8 tunners on both. I also have 4 HR24s and 1 H25. The HR34 cannot see any of the HR24 play lists and the HR34 cannot see any of the HR24 play lists. I called the tech back a few hours after he left and he told me that this feature is not supported until a software update that is coming in Jan of 2013. I've searched this site and can't really find a straight answer. Any input would be helpful.

Thanks

Playlist sharing is coming in the near future. I cannot give a date because it would just be a guess.

Thanks for the response. Is this going to be a software update on both ends for this to work? Meaning will the HR24s and the HR34s need a software upadate to talk to each other? Is this feature in the current CE builds? Guess I need to check those threads out.

What did you do to accomplish his?? I'd like to try checking to see if my HR24 and HR22 will share playlists.....

Although I don't know that they don't already.....when I hit list on my remote, the programming I see listed is from both DVRs....and in "options" (yellow button), I'm given a choice of filtering by playlist, haven't tried that to see what it does.

I just wish I could manage recordings from one place instead of having to run up and down TWO flights of stairs :lol:

Um...any discussion of CE "stuff" is forbidden outside the CE forums...


I am not running CE software.

So there's no need to even mention it here in an open forum, right?

I didn't really do anything other than wait. All DVRs are setup with Whole Home DVR and are labled. Here is some additional info that might helps others.

Current Software Versions:
HR34 - 0x5D3
HR24 - 0x5D2
R22 - 0x628

All DVRs can view and watch shows recorded on each other. The first day the HR34 could not view the Play lists on the others...and all others could not view or play shows recorded on the HR34. Now it can...not sure if the HR34 took an update after I first tested the play list sharing or not...but my current setup works now.
