    That's a good option but not good for everyone, lets start by just getting a way to back up those settings at home 1st. Remember there are still lots of people with poor internet or very low data caps that dont want to waste their bandwidth on something they might only need once in a great while.

    Why would a 100 kb xml file hit a data cap?

    Besides, it'd be nice to create and manage your SL list online. Just bring up the guide, search for the show you want to add, right-click and choose "series link". Then just go to the series manager app, rearrange everything then click "OK". You even get to use a real keyboard and mouse!

    D* will get there, they have to, because some of their competition already does this.

    They could even send this info over phone lines. You are supposed to be hooked up to one or the other.

    Doesn't even need to happen every night. If you make no changes, no upload. Tagging the file(s) with a date time stamp will tell the DVR if the upload needs to happen. Or setting a flag when you make a change that gets checked.

    As for managing on line, a nightly upload would not be enough. You would have to have all changes sent up when they occur or have the DVR talk to the service when you query from the online app to verify that the latest is available.

    With Fios, I can check my DVRs existing list of programs, set new programs and check the upcoming schedule as well as get a status of my hard drive capacity. I can delete recordings as well.

    The things I cannot do is manage season passes or restore them from a backup. It is a live query to the DVR.

    Once IMG 1.9.1 is fully deployed, rumor has it you'll be able to do this.

    Kind of OT...
    I would love it if when they got around to doing that, that they created a way for us to copy our Favorite Channel settings from one device to another. Maybe I'm just lazy. :)
