    So I was calling today to add the March Madness package and asked how much MRV would be after a short search the agent responded with $3. Seems reasonable, I'm not really interested in it personally but $3 doesn't sound terrible.

    That sounds reasonable to me as well. I am sure they spent a decent amount of money on this product.

    "Limit 8 MRV-capable receivers per household." SWM-16 perfect!

    and

    "All you need is one HD DVR (model HR24) in one room and HD receivers (model H24) in your other rooms." Interesting...

    Wait-where's this limit of 8 receivers coming from? That could be a problem for me.

    Thats 16 tuners, or 8 DVRs Kevin. That is a lot of television.

    I plan on adding 1 more receiver to my account, which will up the total of MRV capable receivers to 9. They REALLY not going to turn MRV on for me?
    5 HD DVRs
    4 HD Receivers

    Scattered throughout the family at $20 a pop :D j/k
    I just have one in literally just about every room. Also have multiple DVRs for additional tuners, and some just for backup.

    If they'd add more than 2 tuners to the DVR, and allow backing up, I could SERIOUSLY drop my receiver needs!

    I think it means when a box is acting like a server, it can only output to one client at a time.

    That's fine, just exactly what we can do now. You can only view one one program from a specific HD DVR remotely. Same as right now. If you try and view another program from the same HD DVR on a 2nd remote receiver, you get an error message.

    I believe it will actually be 8 per subnet but the average person has no clue what a subnet is. I believe you will need 1 DECA per subnet as well. Chances are this is how MDU's will get setup eventually without everyone seeing everyone else. Unless someone else can think of a better way to ensure seclusion of other people's receivers connected to a SWM 8/16/32.

    Like Tivo? Sorry I couldn't resist.

    Okay, that wouldn't be so bad. Backups are connected to the Same Tv as the main DVRs, so those don't really NEED to be included in the available MRV list.

    Technically, I could really have a ball with that statement, but this isn't the thread for that! ;)

    I'm just glad I was reading the fine print wrong...
