Just thought I'd add that I'm really keen to get this feature too. I purchased an HDR-FOX T2 and HD-FOX-T2 with exactly the same
idea as the original poster of using one in the bedroom to access recordings in the lounge. It was promised quite a while ago so am hoping it gets released very soon.
This was metioned elsewhere that it was to be a feature of the equipment that you could stream to other DNLA supported devices i.e HDR to HD. I purchased a HDR for the lounge and HD for the master bedroom just for this one feature alone. I could live without the portal if they would just get this streaming working. My other concern is about streaming HD recordings and all these copyright issues. I'd have thought that streaming HD between the manufacturers own equipment over your own network would be allowed but from what I've read it may not be that simple. Shame, real shame if true.
