Hey everyone!! Good morning.. I just switched to Directv yesterday from Dish and have a couple of questions about the receivers I have. I have one HMC (living room) and one HD receiver(master bd) First off.. I was told by multiple sales guys that I would be able to pause/stop live tv up in my master bedroom with the HD receiver because I had the HMC downstairs. That really didn't make any sense to me but since I was told the same thing by multiple directv employees, I took their word. Anyway.. I realize that I can't pause/stop live tv in my master because I don't have a DVR in that receiver. My question is: If I switch to a HD DVR box up in my master, will I still be able to access recorded shows that are downstairs on my HMC DVR? I really don't want to have to choose between being able to Pause/stop live tv upstairs and watching shows upstairs from the HMC downstairs? I'm hoping if I switch to a HD DVR upstairs, that I will gain additional storage from the new DVR and also still be able to watch my recordings from HMC. I would really appreciate any help or input that you guys may have. Thanks !!
