    I talked to customer service on Saturday about another issue and I asked about the MyDVR feature, the rep didn't know what i was talking about.... I've been hearing about this for well over a year now and i'm beginning to think it's NEVER going to happen.

    It depends, I have DirecTV online DVR scheduling, but it does not compare to scheduling directly from the DVRs, in that the guide is not very customized, and when setting up the timer, you only get two recording options, 1) record if possible 2) definately record. If 1), there is no way for sure the timer will actually work, and if 2), no telling if the new timer will override any existing timers on the DVRs or not. Sometimes even with 2) I have noticed the timers did not fire, though not often.

    My understanding with Sling is it is exactly what you would see as if you were in front of the DVR, and I assume Slingbox (or Slingcatcher) works on mobile phones too. But the downside is if you have multiple DVRs, don't you need one Slingbox/catcher for each DVR to access all of them?

    When I had U-verse they had something simular, but it never worked.

    Well as soon as I was done with the above post I heard the rumor that E* will announce the new MyDVR at CES this week, something associated with Sling format, available to all VIP DVR users.

    If E* takes this different route (as compared to D*'s online/satellite hit), it may also lead to a more robust MRV (multi room viewing) system (922?) since it will require that all your VIPs/Slingboxes networked.

    Based on the pics, the interface looks slick. WAY better than the early version we were seeing last year (was it last year?). Also, from the sounds of things it would blow DirecTV's online scheduling out of the water.

    Lovely,

    i sign up for the beta program well over a year ago for MyDVR and am too late.

    This time the beta is announced and I see it two days later, try signing up 5 hours after seeing this post and am again too late?

    This is really starting to piss me off.

    Not too bad of a response ... hopefully when the humans come to work they will continue the process.

    i hope so. It's just been so frustrating because this is the number one feature i've wanted since before I got Dish. I got REALLY excited during the MyDVR beta, then couldn't get in, and now that there's another I got another 'just wait' message.

    I know it's typical, it's just been so long, and this looks like it's going to be so much better than I originally thought, which makes me want it more :)

    I'm on the waiting list also. Hopefully come Monday will be contacted with information to sign up for the beta test. This also has been a feature I have waited on for a long time. Hope I am allowed in shortly.
