Dishnetwork DVR accessible from the web

From Dishnetwork dot com, I can now tell my DVR to record stuff from the web.
I can see something I want to watch while I am at work, and program it to be recorded.

Verizon has implemented this capability for its FIOS DVRs, too. I’ve checked it out and set it up, but haven’t had occasion to use it yet.

Is this only for newer DVRs, or is it for all of them?

I believe it works on all. Mine is a 625 and does not have an ethernet port. Documentation on their website hasn’t been updated and still refers to a network connection.
