I have a setup with 3 DVRs, 2 HD receivers and 1 SD receiver. The entire system, including whole house service, was working fine. I then upgraded my SD receiver with another HD DVR. Had an installer come out and also change out the SWM-8 with an SWM-16. The installer did a great job and all the receivers were working fine.


I then scheduled a couple of recordings a few days ago. Today I realized that my existing receivers can't see the playlist on the new DVR. However, the new DVR can see the playlists of my other 3 DVRs. I rebooted the new DVR as well as a couple of other receivers but it didn't make any difference.


Anything else I can try?

"Dumb question": have you selected "all" under the playlist options?

The choices are local, and all. It sounds like it's still set for local.
