    POV = Point of View. It appears to "us" to be random, not targeted.
    If you could actually see the targeting it would be less random.

    S208 crashed again, just now. Start of PTAT. Two nights in a row after almost a week of trouble-free performance. Interesting stuff.

    I will not be posting a screen shot when I get S2.09 (or whatever I get next) either.
    It is not needed.

    OMG.

    I would read a question before reply ... just in case if the process ignored - asking for DATE and TIME, no need screenshot for such thing.

    Perhaps you should read your question ...
    As clearly stated, I will not be providing a picture - and I do not believe any picture or further information should be demanded. If someone wants to share the date of their download it is their choice - not a requirement nor something that should be asked for in a demeaning manner.

    Hey... make those crashes three nights in a row. Something has definitely gone south with S208. Bedroom Hopper is still on S207 and works fine. I'm going to do a power-off reset when I get home from work today if 208 is still there.

    Any comments on whether the new software release will allow me to play previously recorded programs from currently unsubcribed channels?

    Thanks.

    It was clearly asked as a courtesy, not a DEMAND. We should cut the bickering also ! And paranoid intentions.

    Information I received about this issue indicates that any recordings from channels that aren't part of the subscribe channels will not allow for playback on that recorded event. I don't believe this policy is slated to change. Thanks.

    Ray, that's an awful lousy rug to pull out from under us, then.

    It's not the way any other Dish DVR works, so I'd say it's a bug. I hope Dish doesn't base their policies on software bugs. :)

    I'll certainly not consider upgrading to a Hopper/Joey system until the bug is fixed.

    Considering channels move packages, I'd be pretty irate if I recorded something and lost the ability to view it the next day.

    Ok, then....

    Does some plan exist to screw around with the ViP DVR series owners on this matter in some new firmware/software release?:nono2:

    Users with 209 are reporting otherwise. They claim their recordings will now play back regardless of current subscription.

    Not to mention the workaround.

    Subscribe to that channel for a month+, Watch evereything and then drop it.

    I`m really new to this but if I understand correctly, whats the point in recording a program and then not being able to watch it at a later date subscriber to the same channels or not. I thought the purpose of a DVR was to record a program and have the ability to watch at another date and time...It should be my recording as long as I have the DVR in my posession... Word gets out that this is true about not keeping a recording that you are not subscribed too I think the sales will slow way down on the hopper...If I had known this was true I would have done something different than the hopper....AM I hearing correctly that you loose recordings to channels you unsubscribe too...
