    I am confused as to the limits of MRV. I have 6 HR24s, 1 HR20 and 1HR21.
    From every HD DVR I can see recordings from all boxes but not ALL recordings. If I look at the sharing status it seems like the screen under MUlti Room has a limit of 5 (display issue?). I do see some programs from each receiver on the Play List but not ALL programs on each of the boxes.

    For Example: My HR20 box in labeled OFFICE I see "That 70s Show" and other programs but not "Breaking Bad". If I go to a different receiver I see all programs that are on the OFFICE HD DVR but do not see all of the programs from the Kitchen.

    Is there a bug or a limitation?

    I can go to each of the 8 receivers and test by recording 2 programs on each receiver (Total of 16 recordings at once) but I do not see the same recordings from each box.
    Any ideas?

    Make sure all your dvrs are set to share all their playlists.

    After that, you should see everything on every one of them.. The 5 listed ont he one screen is simply a limitation of that particular screen, and has nothing to do with actually seeing the playlists...

    I have had over 8 dvrs and an h24 showing all shows from all playlists, you haven't hit a max yet.

    Also, are you sure that you aren't seeing all the recordings? Folders from multiple units of the same show or movie get combined into one on the unified playlist.

    The MultiRoom tab does have a limit on displaying boxes, and yes, it is 5. I thought that all recordings still showed up in the playlist...

    There is a limitation in the number of DVRs, but that number is 10. You're not there. How is everything connected? Do all open splitter ports have terminators? Are all playlists shared?

    All Playlists are Shared.

    I do see some shows from every box but not every show. For Example:
    Bedroom 1: Recording Law and Order
    Bedroom 2: Recording Dexter
    Family Room: Recording Jeopardy

    I go downstairs to the Kitchen and I don't see Bedroom 1's current Recording of Law and Order yet I see other Law and Order's that have already been recorded in Bedroom 1 (folder list in the playlist). I do see Bedroom 2 and Family Room current Recordings.

    If I go to the Living Room I will see all 3 shows being recorded.

    If I go to the Office I see 2 of the shows.
    Its really odd.

    From EVERY Receiver I can see some of the recorded shows from all 8 Receivers but sometimes I cannot see the current show that is being recorded. It is weird.

    As a test I went and recorded something on all 16 tuners. Some boxes see all 16 shows some don't. Even with the boxes that don't show all of the current recording programs I do see some old recorded shows on those boxes (old shows from all 8 dvrs).

    I didn't setup any of this Directv did the install. I would say it was a wiring problem if some boxes couldn't see any other boxes. Its odd.

    If DIRECTV set this up, then I am assuming you have DECA .. I'll see if I can find anything out.
