Can you have an X1 DVR box in each room?

Right now I have the X1 DVR on my main TV and a second anyroom box (whatever it is) on the second TV.  The main X1 box is much more responsive and faster than the other one.  Can you have that same type of box on all TV's or just the main one?    It would also be nice so the second TV doesn't have to have line of sight with the remote in order to work.

Yes, you can, there would be a difference in price between the box you have now and a dvr (about $10).
You can swap out the RNG150 that you have for an Xid or XG2,if you don’t go the second dvr route, to be able to hide the box.

So with an xg2, can I still play shows recorded on the DVR from the other box, plus pause live TV, plus hide the box? How much more per month is that box if the DVR box would be $10 more?

Yes to all, same price as the box you have now

Well that makes it an easy choice. I don't see any advantage to the one I have!

Yes I do. I see the difference now. The rng150 has component outputs and the xg2 does not. Thanks!
