Well, once again I was informed wrong before I got my install done. I was told I would have to pay 7 dollars a month for each DVR I had so I just got one for my living room and a standard receiver for my bedroom. Well, I was able to call Direct TV and they agreed to swap my stand receiver out for the DVR for 100 dollars. Now, I am thinking I want to connect them both to the interet for the on demand. Do I just need to get two of the wireless kits if I want to go wireless? I dont have the multiroom dvr, just the two DVRs independent of themselves. I could run an ethernet cable to each location but I would rather just go wireless if it will work. I have to ask in situations like mine where you just have two tvs, why people go with the multiroom dvr instead of just getting two independent DVR's? Is it strictly due to the cost of the equipment? I mean if you have to pay 3 dollars a month for it why not just get another dvr and pay no monthly fee sice all of them are covered under the 7 dollar a month fee? Just curious. I could see the benefit if you had 7 tvs or whatever and needed that many DVR receivers. Also if I cant use two wireless kits for my DVR's (dont know if there is any type of compatabiltiy with running two) Im guessing I just need to connect both DVRs to an ethernet switch and pay the 25 dollar connect fee? The way I read it if I go that route there really is no "equipement" needed to be purchased from Direct.
