Summary

Protect the privacy or recording schedule of a DVR by making it invisible to other receivers in a Whole Home DVR setup.

Solution

The Whole Home DVR setup offers a privacy feature that protects a DVR's list of titles, recordings, and storage space from being accessed by another receiver.
1
Go to the DVR you want Visible or Invisible.
2
Press the SETTINGS button on the remote.
3
From the Settings menu, highlight Receivers and press the SELECT button.
 
Result: The middle box displays DVR Network.
4
Highlight DVR Network and press SELECT.
5
Highlight the Change Network Status option and press SELECT.
6
  1. Highlight the Visible or Invisible option and press SELECT.
     
    Note: An "invisible" DVR can still access "visible" DVRs on the Whole Home network.
     
  2. If you have already created a Parental Control PIN in the Settings menu, then a popup box displays and requires you to enter the PIN. This prevents unauthorized changes to the Visible / Invisible setting. 
     
    Result
    : After the Visible / Invisible setting is selected, and the PIN entered if required, a confirmation page displays and shows the new status of the DVR. 
7
To make the DVR Visible again, repeat steps 1 through 4 and then select the Visible option in step 5.
