    I have read on the GTV page that you can record (DRV) if you are a Dish Network Subscriber. I am a Directv subscriber and I already have a DVR.
    1-Can I still record/manage recordings from the GTV?
    2-What features I will not have by staying with DTV?

    Yes directive works with gtv I have it, you can set a record from the guide or search mode pree record on the googletv remote and if you want a series just press record again and it will add the series.

    Currently, DirecTV offers most of the functionality that Dish two-way integration does. The main difference is that Dish indexes your DVR recordings so that they're searchable using the Quick Search Box.

    Ouch... it hurts that I will not be able to search my recorded shows!!

    Will this be a problem of directv or the actual DVR?

    How about recording? If I search something on GTV, can I give it the instruction to DVR-it? or I will have to move back to the DVR to set it up?

    Thanks.

    I have the Sony Blu-Ray with Google TV, along with DirecTV plus DVR. So far I can't record shows using the Google TV interface alone - it only brings up the DirecTV guide. I was really looking forward to using the "Queue" area to keep track of all my recorded shows, but unfortunately that isn't the case. Hopefully both Google & DirecTV will sort this out in the near future.
