    No, I can see how the way I phrased that is misleading... You can't see/hear anything, but the show is progressing in time as you're trying to unlock it. Once you get it unlocked, you've missed the first xx seconds of the show (however long it took to unlock it), and you have to rewind to the beginning again. It would be better if the show were paused (or just wouldn't start playback at all) until it was unlocked.

    This isn't specific to any particular software version; it's been this way since day 1.

    Whew! Glad I misunderstood! :) My gut still tells me this falls into a gray area that may be more "issue" than Wish List item, but I invite others to voice their opinions. TIA. /steve

    Sounds like a bug to me. Not even gray. What possible reason could there be for the show to play without you being able to see or hear it?

    You may be right... It's always been more of an inconvenience than a bug, but I can put it in the bug reporting thread.

    Weird. I tried it yesterday and it wouldn't let me do it. I just tried it now and it works. I did reset the receiver and I do have the latest CE. Maybe one of those factors has something to do with it.

    This is a repost from today's Wish List news thread.

    Excellent question! I'll defer to Earl or Tom on this one, because I'm not sure if there is sufficient excess satellite bandwidth available to accomodate this idea. Perhaps when the SD channels go away there might be surplus capacity? /steve

    Doh! I misunderstood your request. :) I was hearing movies, but you were saying interactive content!

    So you are saying, in essence, if the HR20/21 is networked, deliver interactive channel content over the network instead of the SAT.

    Again, I'll leave it up to others more knowledgeable than me to comment! :) /steve

    My problem with this one relates to sports spoilers. On the Sports Subscription packages (MLB, NHL, NBA, etc), the program length is set for 6 hours, but the recordings will often end shortly after the game is over. Often I don't start to watch the game I've recorded until after the game is over. Sometimes I will see that the recording has been truncated; sometimes I will see two recordings for the same game: one lasting, say, 3:10, the other picking up a moment later. I suspect the first recording ends when the RSN transmission to the Sports Sub channel is terminated, and the second one starts when the DTV logo comes up.

    The problem arises when a game is in overtime or extra innings (not a big problem for NHL, with a short ovt and Shootout). Say I'm watching a baseball game, bottom of the ninth, tie game. Exciting, right? But I know from the progress bar that the recording will end in four minutes. So I know, with a high degree of probability, that the home team is going to win the game in the ninth.

    While it would take up more disk space, I would like the recordings to continue for the scheduled 6 hours, or, better, for the progress bar to behave AS IF the recording went on for 6 hours. And if a marathon game lasts more than 6 hours, the progress bar could change to the new time frame at the 6:00 mark.

    I have a suggestion to allow the HR20's program INFO display to scroll to the INFO for the previous or next program in the list without having to first return to that list to select it. I think this will make it easier to quickly view program descriptions when confronted with a list of titles in the PLAYLIST, SEARCH RESULTS or EPISODES.

    Please visit this POLL and let me know if you think this is something we might want to add to the Wish List. TIA. :) /steve

    Unless I'm misreading this request, Icon in GUIDE if a particular program is already on MY PLAYLIST or the TO DO LIST, seems to be partially completed, since items in the TODO list currently have the "R" circle next to them.

    Am I right? If so, I'm going to split this request in two, and just leave Icon in GUIDE if a particular program is already on MY PLAYLIST on the active survey.

    Please let me know if I have this wrong. TIA. /steve

    You are exactly right. The ® record symbol does appear int he Guide if this program is in the To Do list scheduled to record.

    If you have recorded previous episodes, there will be a mark by future episodes of a series link scheduled to record. The ®)) is the Series Link symbol you will see in the Guide.

    Of this request, 90% has been there all along.

    This request is to tell me when there is a series that I really want to record?

    And I have already recorded this episode?

    But it is not import enough to set up a series link?

    But I have not deleted one previous showing yet?

    But I could have deleted other showings of this program and it will still be flagged?

    And the moon must be in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with mars? :)

    I think this one is done.

    Hello,

    If this has already been brought up then I apologize but I could not find anything about it in the search.

    I would like to have the ability to rename a recording. I think DIsh network already has this.

    It seems sometimes the title is too cryptic or wrong. For example, the other day, I recorded the El Cajun Pass train wreck tragedy as I work for UP railroad but the title says Air Distasters. If I could rename the title then I could make it something I could remembers.

    And how about all those porn shows.....rename it to Monster truck madness and voila the wife is not too concernced about it anymore :) :lol:

    Just a thought and probably not too awful hard to implement maybe.

    Not sure if you are talking about auto records (DIRECTV's version of TiVo's Wishlists) or a feature request ..

    I think the OP wants to be able to edit the title of the program that's already recorded. Say you Autorecord - American Choppers and want to re-label it AC : Favorite Show... or something like that.

    That sounds right, Andy. While they are in there, how about create/modify folders and move shows we want into them? i.e., Create/rename a folder called "Thing 4's Shows" and move all of his recordings into them.

    I can do it on my DirecTiVo (rename existing folders, not create them), but albeit with a third party utility.

    A good idea but too cumbersome to implement IMO without some sort of keyboard solution.

    Exactly the reason why I'd never use it even if they did have it. :)

    OK .. yeah, I agree this would be cumbersome to do without a keyboard. It was, at one time on the Wish List, but it did not have a lot of support.
