Quantum Video Media Server and DVR

Message 1 of 10
(1,339 Views)

So before Quantum I had 3 seperate DVR's in my house.  When I was sent my Quantum box it had 2 media servers and 4 Media Clients. 

 

Are the DVR's still kept seperate?  Or is it ONE shared DVR?  We've liked it where what we record is seperate from what someone else records.  We each had our own list.

Each VMS (the DVRs) will have its own name and its own folder of recorded shows. However, you can access those folders and shows from any other VMS and client.

The old MRdvr and stb's are not compatible with VMS and IPC boxes.  Digital adapters are still compatible.

Thanks for the quick response. Is this digital adapters something that can make access available to view thru quantum VMS or is it a complete replacement device for the MR-DVR?

 

Thanks again . . .

Digtial Adapters are much more limited.  THey don't have a programming guide, VOD, etc and only can send the SD channels to your TV.  The don't talk to MRDVR/VMS boxes.

Digital adapter is a SD box that has no guide or VOD. Can't view anything on DVR.

Wghat are you trying to do?

Your MRDVR was replaced by the VMS. STBs were replaced by the IPCs.

it is very upsetting that the vms dvr's cannot toggle between live tv and a show you are watching that has been recorded on dvr using the "last" button
