Directv is starting to roll out a beta version of it's Multiroom DVR.

Requirements of the Beta:
*Firmware Version: 0x0395 or 0x4395
*An HD DVR (models HR20-23)
*At least one compatible HD receiver (models H21-23)
*They have to be already networked
*HD Access and DVR service
*Must "opt-in"

There is one major drawback: once launched from beta to a supported service Directv plans to charge for Multiroom DVR.

By standard I meant non-dvr. Both of my set top boxes are HD. I still have not seen the recent update show up on my non-dvr box.
