Howdy, the link is still working, but they have taken down the link/information on MyDVR. What gives?
Here's the document http://www.dishonline.com/mydvr.pdfBy accessing the My DVR link through www.DishONLINE.com, schedule DVR timers while away from home on your Internet-connected ViP612 DVRs, ViP622 DVRs, and ViP722 DVRs, and future ViP-series DVR receivers.
Looks like they are sticking with that lame Flash interface. :eek2: I hope the next step is to come up with a mobile interface for cell phone/PDA to bring it feature parody with D*.FastnoNOC said:I check this page every couple days. it's not live yet, but they have linked the PDF with the instructions for when it comes out and it looks like exactly what I've been waiting for.

You will be able to schedule remotely using dishonline.com
They may be re-considering what they planned to do. DirecTV has rolled out software for their older DVRs (like the TiVo models) that allow you to schedule timers via their site and once scheduled the information is scheduled via the satellite feed to the receiver (NOT via the internet that DISH was planning on doing). Perhaps DISH is planning the same thing. It seems more practical and does not require an internet connection to each receiver.PeteSJCA said:Howdy, the link is still working, but they have taken down the link/information on MyDVR.

I'm just disappointed as it was one of biggest points of feedback I gave them during the beta.todbnla said:Whatever we get is better than what we have now so lets not get too pickey gents....,IMHO.
My understanding of it is that any ViP series receiver is Homeplug-enabledbjwilson said:Does the ViP612 DVR have the HomePlug ethernet-over-powerline function built in like the 622/722 models do?
I can now confirm this. My new ViP612 automatically picked up an IP through the Homeplug that I bought and connected for my original ViP722.MattDL said:My understanding of it is that any ViP series receiver is Homeplug-enabled
That sounds pretty cluggy solution to me. Online scheduling is better.Lyle_JP said:Nice, but I already have a slingbox for this.
Perhaps, but my solution already works. It's not vaporware.DustoMan said:That sounds pretty cluggy solution to me. Online scheduling is better.
Vaporware? Online Scheduling has been in many many DVR products and most workwith any browser connected to the internet. I'd rather have my DVR talk to a server, then waste bandwidth sending video to drive a remote control from miles away. Using an application you have to take the time to install if you even can on the computer you would be using. It's neat, but not at all elegant. It might work for you, but don't knock the people that want something better.Lyle_JP said:Perhaps, but my solution already works. It's not vaporware.
Yeah I noticed that too. Don't advertise that it's now enabled when it's clearly not.manzelmo said:Why in the hell do they have a damn blurb on the "off" screen about this? I go through the hoops to set up dishonline expecting it to work and see nothing!!! Not even a coming soon message.
Since I am still upset about the local programning guide not working right I figured this would a work around. I could be online at my local pbs and dish to schedule programs.
Anyone that beta tested this know about any firewall issues in doing this? Does the DVR poll the net to update the schedule?
Why would they use dishonline rather than disnetwork to do this?
