HR44-700 shows double recordings in List


We just received a new HR44-700, and whenever a series is recorded, it shows as 2 recordings at the exact same time.  If I set up a show to record once, it does not show twice.  We did notice that one of the shows has the [LIVING ROOM] at the beginning, while the second one does not.  We do not currently have a second HD DVR on our network, but we will in the future, so for now, the Genie is our only system on our home network.  Any ideas on what is going on?

    If in your LIST of shows you see a location name in brackets (such as [LIVING ROOM] ), that means the guide is seeing that recording on another DVR (or Genie), not on the local machine.  Recordings on the local machine will not have any bracketed location entry.


    However, the only reason you would see a particular recording listed  twice, once with and once without the bracketed entry, is if you had it set up to record on both units, and both playlists were shared.


    When you say you don't have another DVR "on your network", are you referring to your computer local area network?  The DirecTV system with a Genie and other receivers/DVRs installed is networked through the coax, you don't need (and should not have) ethernet connections to other units.  So if you have more than one receiver/DVR active, they are in fact networked.
