    Nor do I. Probably both sides budged a bit because this is a win-win for all. Copper could be the next Mad Men. Or it could fail.

    I do know BBC America is promoting the hell out of Copper. It's on advertisements on many other channels, noticed it on History Channel a few days back, and social media is being used en-masse to promote the show. Also, the DirecTV page dedicated to BBC America in HD with a big huge plug to Copper is proof they are using every angle possible to promote the show to the max.

    DirecTV and FIOS getting HD is I think part of BBC America's marketing. They wanted Copper to be in HD for everyone.

    We'll see if it is going to be good, I will record it.

    It is too bad Ground Force is no longer on. I would have liked to have seen Charlie Dimmock in HD :D

    Search is still not seaching BBCA-HD programs. Haven't checked the other channels. Season Passes seem to work okay...

    Yep, found that out today too!

    Had to go thru Guide day-by-day order to reestablish Series Manager, then go back cancel episodes because they're reruns.

    Why must Series Manager settings be deleted and done completely over? Why can't DirecTV add a channel or channel range to the Series Options?

    That would be a Boolean search with auto record. Already exists.

    Sorry but once you put in a channel, it can not be change.

    You can put a range into a boolean. CCHAN 200 250 includes channels from 200 through 250. That is what you asked for.

    Reboot on two machines fixed it. Had to flush the guide on the third with a second reboot.

    It should be CCHANS now. Haven't checked to see if CCHAN still works.

    I suggested that a channel selection be added to the Series Options in order to prevent creating dupe folders for a show because DirecTV change something. Or have never see them add HD or move channels around?

    When they move channels, the scheduled recording move with them. When they add channels, they do not. In fact, I had 620 on live tv when Gol moved to 627. Live tv followed it to 627 when it moved.

    Still not seeing what you are trying to do.

    Not redo all the Series Managers for my most popular Series Manager channel 264. With more than half of 'em in inactive status.

    264HD is a different channel than 264SD. That is a problem. But hardly a huge one. Happens once for a channel. Ever. I doubt you will see a change in the behavior for that. And I've never seen a dvr do it.
