Thanks for a helpful response, one of several. DirecTV is silent on bugs and fixes, so there's no way of knowing what's still a bug. It's really pitiful that we should have to assume that a bug is gone simply because there are no recent reports of it. Some bugs in the list, I admit, are based on reports from others — but never from just one user. I want to assure you that no user error was involved in this problem, which I personally experienced: "An individual show you explicitly schedule and which gets added to the To Do List may still not get recorded, and as a rule there'll be no history entry." I reported it as an NR issue. "A good start?" I'm plumb tuckered out! And here comes a new NR, which may fix some things, but how will I know? Waiting for the new DirecTiVo. When it arrives, D* can continue with their bugfest without any comment from me.
