How many different recorded shows can I watch at the same time with one HD DVR?


With DIRECTV's Whole-Home DVR service, you and your family can watch two recorded shows at the same time on separate TVs — for example, your kids can watch one show on the TV in their room and you can watch another in the living room. If you happen to have a second HD DVR, you can watch up to four recorded shows at the same time in different rooms — every HD DVR in your Whole-Home DVR setup allows you to watch two recorded shows at the same time in different rooms.

If you want to watch more recorded shows at the same time, we recommend upgrading to our state-of-the-art Genie HD DVR. With the Genie Whole-Home DVR setup, you can record any five shows at the same time, and much more. Learn more about Genie.
