I would really love for the VIP series DVR's to be able to stream recordings via LAN from one box to another.
ie. Use the VIP DVR(connected to my home LAN) in my bedroom to play a recorded show from the VIP DVR(connected to my home LAN) in my living room.
Possible, but will probably be a long time in coming.
*edit* or looking at this another way, viewing another VIP DVR's recordings similar to EHD, but via the network instead of a USB cable.
Ditto, I would love this feature.
I would also love to have a favorites list where I could exclude channels rather than adding them. So whenever dish got around to adding a new channel, the person using the favorites list would realize there is a new channel. As it currently is, the favorites list only shows the channels you add to it so if anything new is added and you mainly use a favorites list, then you would never know that you have new options.
