    My RC64 doesn't have that button. Is it the one at 10 o'clock, the curved arrow between stop (12) and rewind (9)? That button only goes back a few seconds not 30. Is there a hidden keyword to enable back 30 seconds? Thanks.

    yeah, tried that with no luck

    UPDATE: tried to stream again when i got up from the living room dvr to the bedroom still with no luck. then i went to the living room and i started a show in the living room that i wanted to play upstairs and then it is like it jogged it all to the other dvrs as i can now stream with sound and video from the living room dvr, so knock on wood, i hope it stays working correctly after they bring out the broadband deca.

    I posted this in another forum, but it may be more appropriate here:

    I called CSR to upgrade to the Whole Home DVR. I've been using the MRV Beta via a wireless router and two gaming adapters on each HD DVR. While SD works fine, HD is very spotty, so I inquired about upgrading the equipment and service. I also want to replace an old Hughes (HIRD-E1) SD Receiver with an HDDVR, I also have a HR20-700 and HR23-700. I have another (inactive) Hughes SD Receiver as well. I was offered the WHDVR with a new HD DVR and a replacement (DECA compatible) SD Receiver including installation for $237.00. To me it seems like a decent deal, but couldn't persuade the wife that it was. Does it seem like a decent deal to everyone?

    The deal seems reasonable .. you're getting 2 new receivers out of the deal .. $99 for DECA upgrade + $49 install + $89 for 2 new receivers.

    I lost 110 and 119 with mrv/deca install. Is that normal?

    It's normal if they replaced your LNB... 110 and 119 are 'speciality' now, and most folks don't need them.

    Thanks, I had tried that right off the bat with no luck. However, after a couple of hours the "beta" screen disappeared, so it looks like everything's good for me.

    Noticed that too. I know i have seen it before but what satellite # is the new satellite going to be on and will it just appear and have the new channels show up?

    Also, i noticed there are three 103 satellites when i checked signals, the first one has mostly 0's and the 103c and 103b i think they are have high numbers.

    Can you imagine what this would be like if they didn't have DECA, and were running/making ethernet cables and had a switch involved.

    My installer said that i didnt have to have the ethernet cable plugged into each dvr since directv didnt send out the broadband deca.

    so i asked on here why he was on the phone with his boss, and about 4 people told me you need it plugged into ethernet port 1 regardless. Half an hour later the dvrs found each other.

    i think it just comes down to training.

    Has anyone had any luck getting the MRV bit flipped by calling retention?

    1st time - CSR said that I.T. would have to "fix" this glitch. I.T. never fixed the glitch.

    2nd time - CSR's computer locked-up and couldn't help me.

    3rd time - I walked the CSR through the script but she didn't apparently have permission to change the bit to "u".

    4th time - The CSR was very against doing the unsupported walk-through script and didn't want to do it. He insisted that I get the equipment.

    5th time - Got a CSR in the Phillipines who was completely clueless. I ended-up getting transferred so I just hung up.

    6th time - FINALLY! I finally got a hold of a CSR who knew what in the hell she was doing. She asked me if I was participating in the beta and she put me on hold for about 5 minutes and said that I'm good to go.

    Jesus H Christ...

    No dice for me. I participated for several months in the Beta and everything worked perfectly. My setup: HR23 in living room, R22 (with HD) in bedroom. Called in three times using Doug's instructions and each CR tried to enable/activate but were not successful. On my online account you can see under Recent Activity where they activated, but immediately after it kicked it off (disconnect.) I am not going to pay for a receiver upgrade when I'm perfectly happy with my R22 and used it perfectly for 3 months or so during the Beta. They just won't get my $3/month. (However, I did have the legacy package Choice Plus HD/DVR, changed that to Choice Extra and added DVR and HD, so luckily I get to spend $1 more a month for no reason! :nono2:

    Update: Spoke to installer, he said that OTA will not work with the receiver (HR20-700) at all now that I have Whole Home Viewing. Even if I run it directly from my Antenna to the receiver. I told him that it worked before the whole home install. He is saying that they did not touch the antenna at all. Lucky for me, I connected to coax directly to the tv and still no signal. Now he is saying that his partner may have disconnected a cable on the roof.

    You could talk to retention and "fish" (as other have called it) for a free upgrade to an HR2x from the R22 so you can get MRV.
