DirecTV is rolling out it's DVR scheduler so you can set up recordings on your DVR on the internet or your mobile phone.
As of now I think it's only working with the HR20's but soon it'll work with all DVR's

I haven't tried it with my mobile phone (because I don't know how to go online with it!
) but it worked fine with my computer & Ipod Touch.
