Please, tell me how.

I can't find directions to do that anywhere.

The phone agent thought it could not be done.

Go to the following web site :http://www.directv.com/learn/pdf/System_Manuals/DIRECTV/DIRECTV_HDDVR_HR20-44.pdf then go to the section Connecting Clients. This might help.

Here is another reference I found.

Every favorites is individual for each receiver/room. The best way to apply to every room at once, is to set it up on your Genie (hddvr), then on the clients, under the whole home tab in your settings, there is a copy settings option. Choose which room your copying from.

Now the biggest problem I am having is that nothing ever downloads to iPad. It just keeps preparing and seems to lose connection quite often. I originally was just using the wireless built into my cable modem and thought that was the problem. Now I have a Netgear wireless router and I am still having the same problem. Currently the GenieGo is connected to my Cinema connection kit.

That is totally it. Use the whole-home tab in settings to copy a desired list to a clients/server! Perfect!

If you make one favorite list in the BED ROOM dvr, for example. You can go to the living room dvr and open Settings: Whole-Home: and then copy the favorites list from the BED ROOM dvr to the LIVING ROOM dvr (as an example). This worked perfectly.

Ya, great until you add or remove a channel from that list on one of the TVs. then you either have out-of-sync favorite lists with the same name or you have to remember to manually copy it over again after figuring out on which one you made the change. We've had DirecTv for less than a week and I already find this frustrating.

+1 for the Whole Home shared Favorites List function!
