I currently have a Home Media DVR setup with the Motorola 6416 HD DVR connected to 2 Motorola 2500 SD Set Top Boxes. One of the 2500s is connected to a HD TV, so I'm not able to view live TV in HD ( I'm not looking to view recorded programs in HD) because of this limitation where older HD Set Top Boxes don't work with the Home Media setup.
I was wondering if the new Motorola 7100 HD Set Top Box is compatible with the Home Media Setup, so I can overcome this limitation?

Work for streaming dvr video, or from the PC like music and images?
If you mean from the DVR, I believe with the 1.6 image the MR-DVR will stream HD and SD content to any box 7xxx or 6xxx. SD box will not get the HD stuff. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
But the images and music from PC will only go to the MR-DVR

Thanks for the quick reply Tim. I've since replaced one of my Standard Definition Motorola 2500 boxes with the Motorola 6200 HD box. I can confirm that with the 1.6 software I can now see content on my Home Media DVR setup from a HD box.

Just to be clear, are you saying you can see images and music from the HomeMedia DVR or just recorded show? I am hoping this is case but I am pretty sure this is not possible.

Sorry for the confusion. I'm attesting to the fact I can now see Recorded Shows with the HD box connected to my Multi Room (Home Media) DVR setup. I don't use the Media Manager software for sharing Music/Pictures.
