DIRECTV has started the public beta of it's much anticipated Multi-Room HD DVR Service. I don't know about you but I've been waiting for this new service for quite some time.
Here's some details from DIRECTV:
Watch what you want, when you want, in any room you want. With just one HD DVR, you can watch your recorded shows on any TV in your house that's connected to an HD receiver. But that's just the beginning. You can also:
- Start watching a recorded show in one room and continue watching it where you left off in another room
- Record and delete shows from any TV connected to an HD receiver, not just the one connected to the HD DVR
- Record two shows at once, while watching two different shows in separate rooms
- Set separate parental controls for each TV
If you have more than one HD DVR, the DIRECTV Multi-Room HD DVR service keeps things simple by showing you a single, combined playlist of all your recorded programs on any connected TV.
You need an HD DVR* (models HR20-23) and at least one compatible HD receiver (models H21-23) that are already networked, along with HD Access and DVR service.
