    In the notes about this release, could these be explained in a little more detail...."HDMI CEC" and "Last 4 timeout"

    Thanks!

    HDMI-CEC is where the receiver will turn on the TV and change it to the correct input assuming of course the TV supports this protocol. Last 4 time out, I have no idea

    Does this address the abhorrent remote response on the HR34?

    Maybe it has something to do with the yellow/info button last 4 channels pop-up needing to give up after a while of no response from the user.

    Then again, maybe they did something with the inactivity timeout:

    See this is what happens when you are clueless about something. You are confusing two different things. The link you provided is for the power saving feature, it has nothing to so with the last 4 on the informational banner. But I can't expect any less since you are a Dish subscriber.... Who LOVES to hangout in the DirecTV® forums....

    Given that you've admitted to having no idea (being clueless?), I'm surprised you felt compelled to call me out for making observations.

    There doesn't seem to be any specific mention of the informational banner in the release notes but there was clearly a mention of a timeout that one might reasonably associate with the power saving warning message.

    I presented two possibilities and gave some background on the second. Hardly confused or confusing when taken in context.

    Please take your personal discussion to the Messenger feature at the site or maybe even exchange phone numbers and you can discuss who knows less about DIRECTV that way. :)

    My HR34 did a spontaneous reboot this afternoon, right after Rollins hit a pinch hit homer, that got hung up during downloading sat data - as there was no change in screen from when I went out to cook and eat lunch in my kitchen and when I returned to my living room. My estimate is it was hung up at least 35 minutes. Did a RBR And it came back.

    Yep, this is going to be an often used feature.

    Please add it to all H2x/HR2x.

    Why the need for MENU6?

    It would have certainly been nice if one of those was for the "to do list". I find it crazy that the only way to see what you have scheduled to record is to go to the DVR itself and dig down into the menu a couple of layers. I also find it ridiculous that you can schedule a recording online but can't check to see what you have scheduled to record.

    The ToDo should replace the PlayList in Menu6 because PlayList already have a dedicated key - LIST.

    Menu7 will get you there a little quicker. It would be nice if you had to option to set them to whatever you want. CC on/off would be one of mine.

    Yes, that's another one, way too many button presses just to turn on CC.

    Got 0x8c2 this morning. Search on MENUSC doesn't display any list of shortcuts mentioned in the release notes. Pressing Menu + number does nothing. Also can't find anything about HDMI CEC.
