    "You seem to recall" a lot of bad information.
    "I seem to recall" someone pointing out a post from someone named "Harshness" posting the BS on another forum, who'd have had their butt kicked if they'd posted it.

    As to "how the billing process will happen", I answered. You add a RVU client and it costs you $6/month.
    You want to remove a client? You call and get it removed. "Seems ironed out" to me.
    Since more than one HR34 isn't supported, I don't think too many users are having to deal with it yet.

    This along with whether there is a fee involved would seem to be open questions. Obviously because they don't apply to you personally, they're immaterial. :(

    Read that last sentence back to yourself very slowly. It might take a couple of tries.

    Yeah....unfortunately I don't have an English translator nearby...

    Even with that resource...it wouldn't make much sense.

    "A fee involved" for what? Removal of the client? Why on earth would there be? And why would a hypothetical client removal fee be material to you?

    Based on the original post you referenced...perhaps we need a sign "Beware of Dish Fishing". :D

    Believe me, since I have the hardware AND DirecTV, they apply a hell of a lot more to me than to you, until you become a DirecTV customer.

    since the hr34 can stream 3 recordings at a time to other receivers via mrv. if its using all 3 to say 3-h25's can the c31 pull a recording?
    just curious since c31 basically isnt a receiver by itself so i dont think mrv applies to it.

    Three streams is the limit.
    "Maybe" it would help to not call it MRV, but coax networking or DECA, as this is how it's done and the limiting issue.

    so then if 3 c31's is pulling live tv then the h25 cant pull the recording?
    sorry im a bit confused. i thought that the c31 basically took over one of the hr34s tuners and ive read that even if the hr34 is recording on all 5 that it can still stream 3 recordings via mrv. sorry i still prefer calling it mrv.

    Think of it this way, the HR34 can send out three streams to other devices, be them RVC clients or WHDVR clients, period.

    Consider it confirmed. I have an HR34 and 3 clients. When all three of them are active, no other receivers on the LAN can stream a recording from the HR34.

    but must say it would be a big plus if and when the c31 can see the playlist from other hdvrs.

    how heavy is it? is it light enough that i can adhere it to the back of the tv?

    Don't know any exact amount but it feels about the same as my iPhone.

    Strong velcro would probably work. It really is very light.

    That's cool, you could theoretically attach it to the back of the TV and use an RF remote and then it wouldn't look like you had any set top box.

    Air vents are on the bottom and sides, I heard a rumor that a mounting unit is in the works but no timeframe. Don't forget you also need to account for the power brick.
