    I'm mulling over the prospect of switching from DTV (SD, a series 2 Tivo) to Dish (HD). One nice new feature DTV just rolled out was the ability to remotely program my DVR over the internet. Not withstanding the obvious security issues, that's a cool feature for me (without having to connect to my Slingbox to do it, which is not always possible)!

    I've taken a quick look through the forums & I haven't seen any reference to whether or not Dish has this capability. Any pointers to an answer (yea or nay) would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Steve Hurd

    Nay at the moment ... it has been tested in the past and may arrive as a feature in the future but no direct remote capability today.
