    Hello,

    I have 4 DVRs connected with Whole Home.

    For some reason over the past week or so, the Playlist on my HR 24 is ordering my programs from A-Z for each DVR rather than A-Z for all programs. This is somewhat painful since I have to scroll through sets of programs for 4 DVRs. My other 3 DVRs (HR 22) are fine.

    My Playlist now looks like this:
    A-Z programs - DVR 1
    A-Z programs - DVR 2
    A-Z programs - DVR 3
    A-Z programs - DVR 4

    I would like to get it back to what if was in the past.
    A-Z All programs (1 set/master list of all DVRs)

    Thanks in advance for any responses.
    Steve

    Might you have toggled on "Filter by Playlist" accidentally? IAE, try turning that off, or on then off.

    What is your firmware version number? I know there was a version recently that had this issue.

    What, then, was the fix?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I just tried toggling, but it still has the whacky playlist sort order.

    HR24/500
    The firmware is 0x59E, Thursday 2/23
    SWM Firmware 2.0.24

    I thought maybe the kids or wife hit a series of buttons on the remote to cause this, but who knows.

    I want to say, but can't 100% for sure, that it was 59e that had the issue. Right now 5CD is out there and that does not have the issue so it shouldn't be too much longer that you have to wait.

    Thanks for the response. I don't have a problem waiting. I just hope it gets fixed in the update. If not, I guess I will give DTV a call.

    Trying to learn more about this, I unplugged a wire or two. Got a shock, as before I did this, there was also an unidentified sitting object on my system, an unnamed device in the wired section of my report. Zounds! I muttered to myself....

    After a bit of further testing and rebooting the nomad, it turned out it was in fact that, which sometimes shows up named in the report, sometimes not. I have a Netgear 3400, and cannot seem to name anything, so I've given my receivers numbers based on their model numbers.

    Yes, it was a bit obtuse.

    1.) Tried to see if I had any un ID'ed devices.
    2.) Thought there was.
    3.) Wondered if I'd missed it before, or if new software made it show up.
    4.) Rebooted nomad and it ID'ed itself.
    5.) That mystery solved.
    6.) Unplugged other devices to ID, all proved themselves to be what I thought.
    7.) Wondered aloud why I couldn't get my Netgear router to accept names for fixed IP's.

    And this has to do with the OP's issue how?

    You have to have been paying attention, and there's no need to quote a whole post when jumping in to whine or be rude.

    So, why not just put me on your ignore list?

    Ummm, well for one I have been paying attention and second I wasn't whining or being rude. Maybe you should relax and possibly even read this thread again from the beginning.

    I was asking what your procedure (you're the only one who brought it up), where you're trying to get every device ID'd, has anything to do with the OP's issue of everything in his playlist is sorted by DVR then A-Z. Those are 2 completely different issues.

    Now I do know there's another thread on here somewhere that someone posted about coming across something on their network that didn't get an ID. Perhaps you meant to post in that thread??

    Ah, my bad. I see I went off track in post 10, and continued the folly; I was thinking of another situation. Sorry to all, but glad, still, the OP got a chuckle.

    I have the exact same issue, also for about the last week or so.
    I have 4 DVRs and an H25
    DVRs are:
    HR24-500 running version x59e
    HR24-100 running version x59e
    2 HR22-100 both running version x5cd

    Hope they correct this soon, it is very annoying.
    Reboots don't seem to correct it.

    Same here. Reboots haven't done anything. Playlist was fine up until the last week or so, then bam. Thinking of doing a reset defaults.

    Reboots and resets won't do anything, it's in the firmware! Save yourself some stress and just wait for the update that fixes the issue or you'll drive yourself nuts.
