    I'm happy to report that my HR24-500 which was having freezing issues and slowdowns due to using keyword autorecords has been working for a week or so with no issues. This is using a revised keyword autorecord that does not utilize the "HDTV" keyword, therefore my autorecord which used to say "AALL HDTV Rangers" & Sports & Hockey is no w "AALL Rangers" & Sports & Hockey

    Changing the keyword and getting 0x0736 resolved my problem to the point where I have not had any slowdowns or freezing at all in normal use over the last week or so.

    Once my HR23-700's get 0x0736 I'll report if they have any issues.

    My three HR20-700 DVRs were updated last night to 0x736.... unlike most past updates, this one hit hard and wiped all the "to do" lists -- perhaps the machines were rebooted twice in close proximity because this rarely happend with past updates.
    How about you?
    I know the lists will repopulate, but perhaps not in time for today's shows.

    They usually have several hours worth of guide within an hour. In a few hours it should have enough to cover the rest of the day.
    I have purposefully done the double reset in the morning time and did not have a problem with scheduled recordings starting as early as 7 pm.

    Don't worry it will catch all your recordings. Worst case it may not get enough data and will not know if a show is a repeat yet and will record a repeat with zero guide data other than show name when you have no repeats set.

    My experience also. I do my Guide cleaning as I turn in for the night. Unless someone tells me I am missing something great that airs at one a.m......and then only.......

    Why is it that Under the Dome, one of my Series Manager recordings on my HR24, does not appear in the playlist on ANY of my DVRs, including the one on which it was recorded? The ONLY way I'm able to watch it is to go to the DVR on which it was recorded, then go to recordings-->history, then select the episode, then press play? Moreover, when I download an episode via DirecTV On Demand, the "hidden" recording now appears, allowing me to watch it on connected DVRs?

    This is just weird.

    LV- No idea why. But a Guide flush might correct it.

    Really??? I will be so happy to get this NR if this functionality is being added back. I still don't always remember that it's gone, and get the bonk to remind me when I try. Especially since I still have an R15 in my office, which does still allow control of the PIG. Thanks for mentioning this.

    ^ I read that post and was hopeful as well, but no joy: this NR doesn't restore the very-much-missed trick play with PIG or pic-in-playlist. :mad:

    I'm just praying the 'stability fixes' eliminate the partial recordings that my HR20-700 has been getting with the last two firmware releases! Any time two programs are scheduled to record at the same time, there's a ~ 50% chance the beginning of both recordings will be delayed by anywhere from 30 to 90 seconds. MOST annoying! :angry:

    I'd be surprised if going forward you can do those things in PIG (picture in graphics, ie List or Guide.) With that knowledge, you can devise ways to minimize that inconvenience sooner rather than later.

    Note: This is NOT working on all my receivers. So far, it IS working on the two HR24s. I haven't yet checked my HR20-700s. It's not working on my HR21, HR22, and HR23.

    ^ Interesting to note that it works on the HR24! It's not working on my HR20-700 :( and my HR23 hasn't been updated yet.

    So.. it looks like I won't have this to look forward to! :crying:

    Yes, it's almost certainly gone for newer receivers, newer software. However, there are many ways to avert bad things happening in the PIG. What are your concerns?

    Noticing in the new HDApps, in the ScoreGuide, when a baseball game has a rain delay, the new app lists it as "PPN", which most people would take to mean postponed, even though it is just a delay. The "red" button ScoreGuide has the correct notation as rain delay......

    0x736 has made my HR23 and HR24 worse. When I hit RECORD, they freeze for 50 seconds now. When I Stop/Keep a recording, it does not appear on the LIST. I have to RESET the receivers to get the new recorrding to appear on the LIST. Then when I try to delete the new recording by pressing DELETE, it won't delete, It will delete only if I press the red button. DTV outrages me,

    What software is on the units that are still working with pig functions.

    My concern is that I had a few years of happily being able to count on pausing, skipping etc., while in PIG... and I'm still pissed this was taken away. :mad: I have no illusions about it coming back, but it's something I literally used every day. Note that I literally mean "literally". :biggrin:

    It's one more thing on the list of useful functionalities that were removed to make way for bells & whistles.

    Mind you, I'm intrigued by your comment "there are many ways to avert bad things happening in the PIG." To what are you referring?

    I'll have to check.

    I'll have to check. I do know that one of my HR24s is ungodly slow. I can't stand it!
