    I haven't really tried MRV via HR24/HR20.... for a couple of reasons.

    1. My HR23-700 2TB eSATA is full of shows... shows that I need to catch up on. The HR20-700 has some movies... a few specials... and a couple of series that have since been canceled.
    2. My HR23-700 takes precedence over the HR20-700 due to the fact that I want to empty it out and move it to another room. The HR20-700 is staying put for as long as possible. I will not replace it with anything less than a HR24.

    However, MRV with the HR23 acting as a server, and the HR24 as the client is not as fast (or accurate via TrickPlay) as the HR23-700 acting as a server and the HR20-700 acting as a client.

    I'll see how MRV works with the HR20-700 as the server sometime tonight after work though. I've said it before, but being able to MOVE content from one DVR to another would sure make things easier...

    I'm thinking that with this weekend's updates across then whole group of HR2x units...things may be back more in sync than it is now.

    In my case - HR24-100 to HR20-700 and HR21-200, as well as H24-100 to HR24-100 MRV has been working quite well since the update.

    Doug-do you know if this is actually new software, or just the same as the other night, for the couple that didn't get the software?

    I'm not concerned by my experiences. I'm just surprised by the different experiences we've had with MRV...

    Given that Doug's post lists the CE as {CE:01:02} 0x3B?, I feel like it's new.

    could go either way .. I suspect it is new, though.

    I finally got to use the HR24 as a server for my HR22 and it was extermely impressive. Trickplay was as if I was watching locally, I really don't think my wife would have noticed if she had been running the remote.

    Two thumbs up.:)

    I have to say that so far my experience with MRV has been very favorable. At one point last night I actually forgot that the show I was watching was from the HR23 not one recorded on the HR24.

    Network is hardwired. Not sure if that makes any difference using ethernet (Cat5e). But I have been pretty impressed so far.

    PS. Unable to access the special chat room so I will wish everyone a good CE night here.

    Man....I just switched my HR24 up the main location in the house. That bugger did not want to work with the AM21 at all, at least I assume that's what it was. It just didn't want to come up from being unplugged. I had to redo satellite setup a couple times. I think all is good now though.
