    Inventive & elegant solution!

    I guess this item from the list at the end is now redundant:
    "An H20 HD receiver can’t be used for MRV since it has no Ethernet port"

    ...thanks! I'm inclined to leave the item about the H20, you know people will ask no matter how many times you tell them.

    Let's take one more look and then I'll see about making it public!

    What happened to "Enable MRV from the menu: MENU => Parental, Fav’s & Setup => Miscellaneous Options => MultiroomDVR = > On => OK"?

    Also, could make all the punctuation the same (some lines have periods and some do not, caused by combining items from different sources) in the list at the end.

    I was wondering about the MRV Client [ON/OFF] shot also.

    Let's see if this is better... the screencap for turning MRV on fell off the bottom of the page.

    Just change Playlist to List in the following text at the top of page 5 and it's good:
    "The Playlist from an HD receiver is a little different since it doesn’t have its own Playlist.”

    OK, please read through it one more time and I'll make all your final changes tonight. I think this document will still have to evolve, because MRV's not done yet, but I think we may be able to release it to the CE team very soon.

    I think it looks great. Nice job!

    I still believe searching for EDGECUTTER and MRVCLIENTON are no longer needed, but that's my issue. :lol: If it's just going to the CE team first, then no harm either way.

    Yes, it's just going to the CE team for now. I suspect there will be enough changes in the final implementation that I'll need to revise it thoroughly.

    Several changes:
    • Reformatted page 3 with indications to press OK
    • Text changes to the bottom of page 4 in the WGA600N section
    • Minor changes to page 5 as requested in this thread.

    MRV First Look

    Please give it a fresh look. I know it seems like a pain proofing over and over, but folks, this is how you get a superior document.

    You changed all of your page 3 arrows!
    Well, almost all of them. ;)

    So are we looking for any MRV changes tomorrow? :)

    (I'd be real happy with another fix for OTA playback)

    Hopefully OTA playback fix and Playlist cursor-jumping as well.

    If it affects the First Look, sounds like remote delete is in the works. :)

    I'm going to the 4:05 showing of Star Trek (at the Warren Theater with sit down food & bar service) so I'll be home in time for CE. :)
