The remote is the same one as comes with the DCX3400, i.e. the silver-gray remote. I had my system installed today and just kept my old one. The satellite units also use that remote.
The anyroom DVR has a larger hard drive and can communicate with the satellite units, but not with other DVRs. The satellite units can view content from the anyroom dvr, but cannot record to the DVR. Nor can they pause live TV.
If you need DVRs everywhere, then stick to the regular DVRs until they upgrade the software to allow multiple DVRs to communicate.
I think people thought you were from Canada because you said you PURCHASED your DVRs, which, if they were Motorola boxes in the US, you couldn't do.
