    I thought I have read before that if you have a DVR/HD DVR connected via Ethernet to the internet that you could connect from that box others. How do you do this? If I am correct, you would on the first box connect the Ethernet port "1" to the internet and the port "2" go into the port "1" on the other DVR. It would be like a daisy chain effect. Is my thought process correct? And if so would this allow the access the both hard drives?

    Yes that is correct, but it does not allow access to both hard drives or any linking of the actual units. At this time it just allows multiple units to connect to the network through one wire/connection for VOD, PPV Ordering, etc..

    Thnx for the info. I am wondering for the future if there would be a way for shows being recorded on one DVR hard drive to be accessed from another. That would be a cool and usefull feature.

    DirecTV has discussed "Multi Room Viewing" features in the past, but no official release dates.

    I know that Verizon has this feature with it's boxes. I am not sure, but I think Comcast does as well. This would be a cool feature to add in a CE.
