    I am getting a second HD-DVR Tuesday to go in my bedroom and I already have one in the living room and was just wondering will whole home DVR work with the 2 HD-DVRs like will I be able to see in my bedroom what I record in the living room and will I be able to see in the living room what I record in my bedroom?

    I was asking because if so I will keep Whole Home if not I am gonna cancel it as their will be no need for it.

    Yes, as noted, viewing will work just fine.

    What you can't do is schedule a recording on DVR B from DVR A (or vice-versa). You have to schedule them on the local unit. But you can watch anything on either from either.

    Another advantage of having the second DVR is that you will gain live viewing "trick play" (Pause, rewind, etc.) at that TV.
