DirecTV HD DVR owners keeping an eye on Cutting Edge releases got a special treat this weekend with a new update that enabled multiroom
viewing and dual live buffers on HR2x
and R22 receivers. Allowing users to pause one tuner for up to 90 minutes while they watch the other, DBSTalk notes this test release is a "Very High Risk" so don't bother calling customer service if it doesn't work properly
, and if you missed the downloading window Friday then you'll have to wait for the next test period -- or whenever DirecTV
is confident it has worked out all the kinks -- to give the new (or old, if you're a DirecTivo owner) features a try.
