    I'm already in the Info section -- how much more attention could be drawn?

    Images flashing on Guide selections THAT ARE ALREADY HIGHLIGHTED aren't going to draw me in to anything I'm not already looking at, either.

    This is a perfect example of "The fact that you CAN do it doesn't mean you SHOULD do it".

    Seems a waste of precious system resources to me.

    This is my point. It does absolutely nothing to enhance the TV viewing experience. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me shut it off.

    Wouldn't you think if I'm already looking at the info screen the show has probably already drawn my attention? The tiny graphic is not going to make anyone watch the program anymore then they would without the graphic. :confused:

    Tell that to DirecTV. They added the graphics, not me.

    Yea, I know, it wasn't directed at you. Just wondering out loud why DirecTV would even think it would give a program more attention.

    I just switched to DirecTV from Dish... and I thought Dish's interface was outdated looking, but why is the resolution on all of DirecTV's graphics SOOOO poor? It is really quite pathetic looking on my 58" 1080p plasma. While the the program graphics and channel logos is a nice attempt at freshening up the interface, the resolution is so poor, it just comes off as cheap.

    I think a better change would be losing the graphics, and upping to a true 1080p resolution interface... being able to clearly make out the blocky pixels making up the text from across the room is just sad.

    For the most part I am happy with the operation of the receiver so far, but the interface leaves a lot to be desired.

    My thoughts exactly. It's very dull. I'd even like it if they dressed it up a little with some color variation like in the score guide. It's just "flat".

    Quick question guys, is there a way to change or edit the title/name of a recording. I have a HR22-100 and I would like to change the name on a couple of shows.

    Thanks

    I have an hr21-700 with 0x40d and right now its snowing outside so my dish is having trouble receiving a signal (I'd have to go up on the roof to clear it), but that's not the problem.

    The problem is that when the signal is out/poor for some reason the DVR functionality should still function. Right now if I go to my list and try to playback a show the video is very choppy, every few seconds it will stop, then a few seconds (or up to a minute) later playback will resume.

    The loss of a clear satellite signal shouldn't prevent shows on the list from playing.

    The 0x40e update downloaded this morning to my HR21/700. Froze up during dinner, reset the receiver, and it came back, but without any HD channels. After another reset, everything finally came back after awhile. Still acting very sluggish.

    Got it too. Now I got to pay attention for audio dropouts again.

    Got 0x40e this morning. What is it so hard to retain PLAYLIST SORT SETTINGS ACROSS VERSION UPDATES?

    If 0x40e came out in August, why am j just getting it now? Or am I missing something. I thought I had received this (or very similar) update previously.

    HR22-100

    Have had audio dropouts for a long time even after replacing HR2x. Any chance this version fixes that? We will see..

    I agree it's annoying, but I don't think it's just a "new version" issue. Simply rebooting my HR's on the same version causes my PLAYLIST settings to default back to "newest first". D'oh!

    You are correct. It has nothing to do with the new software download. Any type of reboot (RBR, software, soft reset) causes it default back to "newest first". The PLAYLIST settings are never retained/saved....very irritating. This needs to be fixed.

    Hi,
    I have the following setup, and recently added an HR24D-500.


    Slimline 3
    Zimmwell 8 multiswitch
    HR24D-500
    HR23-700
    HR23-700
    HR10-250

    Everything was working great until last night when one of the HR23's starting displaying the message searching for Sat signal on 2. A show was currently being watched when it happened. Currently I am using the receiver with only one input. I ran through the reset, testing, and all sat's show a signal level of 0. I took the receiver to another room, and connected it and it works fine. Does this mean there is a bad port on my zimmwell multiswitch or cable issue or something else? The HR24 I recently hooked up has B Band converters, not sure if that could have anything to do with it or not, but wanted to put it out there.

    Thanks,
    Don

    I believe it is "by design" that it does this. We've asked DirecTV to change it for a long time and they never have. That kinda says it is setup the way they want it. I'd rather have it retain sort order as well.
