I used to be able to set recordings remotely, but now the ios app and the 14 day guide from D* website only show that I can record to my HR21, and there seems no way to change to my Series 2 directivo, model DSR708.


Has this capability been removed?

The website still gives me the option.  All of my dvrs are still old tivos on 6.4a software.  I set a recording for 20 minutes from now, we'll see if it works.

If you're not part of the problem, you're part of the solution!

Finally figured the problem out.


When using the guide from the website, under 'Channels,' deselect the bottom check box option to 'hide duplicate SD channels.'  Then select the SD channel number and episode, a pulldown box now appears that lets one specify which receiver to record to.


Wish this were designed better.
