MRV - Scheduling Recordings across DVR's?
I have two DVR's hooked up with the whole home package. It works great except that I haven't figured out how to record a program on DVR1 from DVR2. Is there a setting that I have mis-configured? I can't find any. This is a key feature as I often have two recordings scheduled on the DVR I'm using and so I want to schedule the third recording on the other DVR without having to go into that room, turn on the DVR, and then schedule the recording. Simple but very repetitive usage requirement.

I called D* about this and the tech swore that you couldn't schedule a recording on the 34 from a HD receiver. I told him to think through what he just said because it made no sense. He insisted he was right.
Originally I could have gotten the 34 for $99. Besides this ability to schedule recordings from another room, the additional recording(5 vs 4 simultaneous), and greater capacity, is there any other advantage to make the change?
