    Is there a PC software that allows you to see the:
    Series Recordings,To Do List of all the HR24's that
    are connected to the whole home network on one
    PC screen or multiple browsers.
    Example: one browsers for each HR24.

    I would like to add/delete program timers for all HR24's from my laptop.

    This feature is available with Uverse and it one of the things that I liked about it. Sure would like to see Directv implement it.

    I agree. I'd love to see that stuff up in the cloud.

    I'd like to see the iPad DirecTV app schedule recordings with the network if available vs sending it up the to the dish and beaming it back down.

    Directv would satisfy a lot of PRE HR34 users by implementing this
    feature so you don't have to run around the house to every DVR
    to set timers, let alone trying remember what timers you have on
    the other DVR's so you don't have program duplicates.

    I believe the only way to have this feature is to upgrade to a HR34.

    Mite take your advice on Uverse and go that route, at least on the Uverse system
    you can surf from one channel to the other with almost no delay or lag time.
    The HR24 is horrendously slow in just going to the next channel up or down.
    Uverse is lightning fast, I always wondered how Uverse was able to accomplish
    this seemly basic feat in the digital domain. All other multi channel services have
    failed at this, including digital cable TV.

    At the moment the only sane way to change channels on the HR24 is to use the
    program guide. (That is probably one of the reason why they have a guide "To change channels")
