    Unless you just want to do it, it works just like the HR2x stuff with the exception that the playlist yellow button selection is very long with a lot of options. One must use the main menu button to go into manage the autotune to get to that instead of list button. List button only show selectable recordings from DVR's.

    Yeah, not much different from the HRs.
    My LIST button brings up a unified Playlist though, have to use the yellow button to get to the individual DVR Playlists.

    I'll probably work on this tomorrow afternoon, so if you want to do some screencaps from the H21, that would be great!

    Also if someone wants to do some new text for those pages, that's cool, otherwise I'll fill in what I can.

    Some H21 caps where there are differences:

    As seen in this screen shot, the remote DVR is listed in the information/description field of the selected item. When a local recorded selection is highlighted, the Location Name is NOT displayed in this field.

    This is also a shot of the new ALL inclusive DVR playlist.

    When viewing the playlist via the LIST button, the option to filter/sort the playlist is obtained using the Yellow button on the remote. As seen, the list can be set to All or individual DVR named equipment.

    When the Location Name tab is selected, a unique name can be given to each networked device.

    The Playlist Sharing tab gives a selection to enable/disable the playlist of recorded content and also makes remote delete accessible to the networked Directv equipment.


    Note - this tab is not selectable/seen on non-DVR equipment

    Changes to almost every page. Please read through it carefully.

    MRV First Look

    I'd really like to rewrite page 6 with more tips and tricks. Does anyone want to take a look at that page and recommend some changes?

    Delete the following entries:
    • Some OTA recordings currently will give errors when playback is attempted.
    • Coming out of FFWD does not backtrack during MRV to make up for overshoot.
    • Playlist cursor will jump to the top of the list when opening a folder, and can also do it at other times.
    • Pagedown in a Playlist sometimes results in the cursor only moving down part way in the list.
    • A remote Playlist accessed via MRV has its own sort options (that aren’t sticky).
    • MENU => My Playlist or LIST => LIST brings up the last Playlist selected.

    "Sort programs by category" "All" produces the "My Playlist:BR" for the local DVR as shown in the lower RH corner of page 5. This selection is not sticky. Favorites names are used instead of the location name.

    "Resume" in MRV starts playback where the local DVR playback stopped rather than where MRV playback stopped.

    Remote delete seems to be a work in progress.

    Good stuff, dettxw. I'll be making the next revision tonight.

    To all of you... I really appreciate all the help! I don't know if this document will make it out this week because the feature set and menus are still a "work in progress." but I think we're getting a lot closer!

    Don't forget to add an entry that says "If you need help getting MRV to work on your network feel free to give Stuart Sweet a call at ___-___-____". ;)

    The first line of Tips & Tricks is in a different font or size.

    We might want to mention that the display for Category sort reflects the favorites name of the local DVR. (It's still the same old category sort)

    There may be some more changes to the way that MRV is implemented, so this is going to go back on hold for a couple of days. Feel free to read it over and make more suggestions.

    Very nice. As Steve mentioned, the first bullet on Page 6 is a different font/size then the rest of the bullets. Other than that, SHIP IT! ;)
