    I just had my wife check for this recording and we don't have it. So, I will ask this question. According to my HR-20 manual, I am supposed to have a 5 lnb dish. I don't (3 lnb), and everything works fine. I had some problems with software downloads, but that problem has somehow resolved itself. Anyway, my question is, do I have to have the 5 lnb to get the new channels?

    You can see the same clip as the recording on channel 77 or 92. To answer your question, however, yes, you do need the 5LNB dish to receive the new HD channels when they start up.

    Watch channel 77, call D* and tell them what you need.

    They should install it free.

    I have found out that there is already a thread on this in the General Forum.

    Would you change the title of the OP to:

    "Are You High Definition Ready?"

    and merge this into that thread?

    Sorry for any inconvenience.

    - Craig

    Craig's thread has been merged into this one. I know this makes it a little difficult to follow, I apologize for that.

    I love the idea that it is in the playlist and not the showcases so that the mainstream will actually see it. In the future though D* it would be nice if this could be deleted after viewing it.

    I would be more interested to see it in the showcase folder, with a good graphical sign to inform the mainstream that there is a new item in the showcase folder. That will be a good way of educating the user about the usage of the "Showcase".

    I sure hope those in power do act on that suggestion. I for one don't appreciate a recording that wasn't requested be put in the playlist without giving the ability of deleting it. After all where it's at is My Playlist so the user should be allowed to delete any recording from there.

    This video showed up on my HR20-700 but neither of my HR20-100's. After I watched it, I later went back to the list and it had disappeared. I didn't try to delete it, it just disappeared.

    I also looked in my Showcase and found 3 new videos that were recorded 8/11 between 3am-4am. One is a DVR welcome message and the other two are for NASCAR (yawn). These showcase videos are on the -700. Nothing showed up in the showcase on the -100's.

    Just checked my Playlist and It's GONE!

    It had recorded Monday morning at 8:02 am, I watched it Monday night But couldn't delete it after viewing.

    After reading this thread Just checked and it has disappeared from my Playlist.
    Even though it had a expire date in September, it probably just deletes itself a day or so after you view it

    Has anyone else thats viewed it had it delete on its own ??

    Same here - had it, watched it, couldn't delete it with dash-dash or red button :mad:, but it disappeared overnight without action on my part and in spite of the 9/19 expiration date. :confused:

    I had not viewed mine yet. It is still there. However, the expiration date has changed to 8/22 and there is a "triangle with an exclamation point" icon on the far left.
