Everyone/anyone...

Last week I revieved 2 brand new HR21s to replace my old TIVO DVRS from DirecTV. I spend the better part of day (during the Hurricane FAY) wiring the attic for CAT6 and getting them plugged into my gigabit switch in my house.

I then got WMP11 up and running on one of my workstations and I was very pleased when all 3 DVRs started working and I could get files off my PC.

The problem is that for video MPEG, there does not appear to be a way to fast forward or rewind.

I tried TVersity and it seems that it has the same issue.

I searched the forums and saw that TVersity CANNOT rewind or fast forward, but is it the same for WPM?

After sweating for 6 hours and wiring everything, I am a little disapointed that I cannot FF or rewind.

Also I found out (after telling my wife) that MRV is not available yet... if at all.

I know that wired HR2x units can VOD from Directv and I can see that watching pictures of the kids is great.


Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance,

Paul

For Media Share, FF and RW apparently only work when using Viiv. Hopefully as development continues it will be available with other media servers.
Is there a way to build a Viiv PC at home using VMWARE or Windows Virtual Server?

Or is it worth getting Vivv PC?

Or is it really the OS, Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) 2005 that makes the difference?

Thanks

Paul
