Right now... as I am told. It is a simple "ping" type check, to www.directv.com. No information is being transfered at this time.PoitNarf said:From looking at all the setup stuff for the Viiv features, it looks like the HR20 is calling back to D* over the Internet. Is any info sent back to D* from the HR20?
That is supposidly going to be a feature in the DirecTV2Go service..DblD_Indy said:I know this is currently a one way data transfer into the device at the moment but I did just run across the fact that my Media player is ViiV compliant. Have you heard rumors that may indicate that someday this feature may allow the transfer of video from the HR-20 to portable media devices?
On the "non-ViiV" MediaCenter... all the sub-folders options where empty.litzdog911 said:If the HR20 can see both "ViiV" and "non-Viiv" MediaCenter PCs on your network, what features are only available on from the "ViiV" PC? Can you only view pictures and play music files from the "ViiV" PC and not other Media Center PCs?
No, don't have any Mac's here.dvrblogger said:Earl,
Do you have any Mac's at home ?
For the moment yes. Expect to see posts from others here trying to hack things together though (myself included)irishelvis said:So basically if I don't have a ViiV machine nor MS Media Center running, I am out of luck when it comes to streaming music and photos to my HR20?
I'm disappointed that Internet access is required for this feature. One of the reasons why I moved to the HR20 was that Internet access wasn't needed. So basically, D* is changing direction and requiring Internet access for HR20 users? :nono2:Earl Bonovich said:
