Apps are slow to load and responding to remote commands on C41 clients at Mom's house. (HR44-700)
I for one would like to see D*tv answer. I have a gut feeling that 95% of Directv employees don't even know what an AM21 is? I did a TV reset scan last night and I now have 93 OTA channels available to me via the TV set. The worst case signal is 80%.
I have the same issue with the guide scrolling being "jittery" and jumping beyond what I wanted.
New apps work -but don't like them. Not nearly as handy (no custominzing sports teams) and have to go at least 1 level deep just to get the temperature.
I did have caller ID issues and that seems fixed - but why break the AM21 scanning???
I've not seen any explanation for scanning being broken.
But I do love the new TV apps. The old ones were ugly and useless to me. Mileage varies!
I don't think it's broken, I think they took it away on purpose.
Well, I can't disagree with that, as I have no inside info. on that. But what might be the reason(s) for so doing? Does the scanning take place in the unit, or the DVR?
The official release notes state:
Updated and Improved:
OTA Scanning removed for AM21 Users (now relies on the same table used for Hx2x)
Not sure how removing a perfectly good feature is and improvement!
Yes, that point has been made several times!
I still have to think it was causing some issues somewhere.
I hold out hope that when they turn off the old guide data they will go back and add in all the missing over the air guide data and channels.
I only think this because of comments made abut adding over the air back into their receivers as a way to combat rising over the air fees thee paying out that was mentioned a few months ago.
However, I think aero may have begun to poke a lot of holes in all this carriage fees for over the air stations.
Hmmmm. The holes that may be punched in the Aero case(s?) may go either way....
New apps is nice, but the fonts are kinda small for me......
How far away are you sitting and what TV (size and type)?
42" LCD, 8-11'. If that matters. The fonts on the "original" ScoreGuide are just fine, but these new HD App scores are smaller.....
No, I mean if Aero wins out, then every provider will be able to get around having contracts with ota providers and not need consent by the time they are done. Sat companies may have the hardest time, because it evidently will also hinge somewhat on specific delivery process, maybe. But its a start to destroying this whole ridiculous concept of having to pay for free ota tv. It should have been banned by congress years ago, when they gave them billions of dollars of bandwidth.
It matters greatly.
Yes, they are smaller, but are perfectly legible. I sit about that distance from a 58" plasma, and have had glasses for a very long time. I read it with no strain or discomfort.
So, you're either too far away from the set, your set needs adjusting or replacing, or your vision isn't corrected properly.
I'm not buying a new TV! :hurah: ...........Your statement even implies they are smaller. Why not bump them up 2 font sizes, simple solution.....I'm not going to lose sleep over this....
Nor I! Yes, they are smaller, but clearer by a large margin.
You might be more comfortable moving a few feet closer.
I would rather use the original TV Apps from the HR2x, the fonts are too small when I'm watching on a 50 inch plasma, and a bit confusing with all that small text with blue surroundings, the weather app is not so bad, but IMHO they should work on other fixes instead of the TV Apps, and even though I don't use a AM21 they should of never removed the OTA scanning.
Anyone know if the freezing issue, during playback, is/was resolved with this update?
