    It would be nice to have a confirmation pop-up when changing channels if you are not watching live TV. Some may not like having to ack a channel change so have it as a user defined option.

    We pause a show sometimes for various reasons and if you change channels, the buffered programming goes away when you switch channels. E* had this as a safety feature and I miss it, especially when one of the dogs jumps into my lap and hits the channel up/down button by accident!


    Another nice addition would be to have the short description of a show in the guide indicate if it is a repeat or show the original air date. I know it shows if a show is a repeat if you hit info, but show it in the short summary when a show is highlighted in the guide.

    And just one more shameless plug for a 2nd MPEG decoder to be included in the receiver to allow for PiP! Yea, I know that is a full re-engineer of the box and would actually likely be a different model (HR30?) but I'd be on the list today for one!

    This looks pretty good.

    Does ADDDS :) (Auto Delete due to disk space) only kick in when recording more of this series link or other series links too? Wouldn't series link priority need to get worked into this too?

    ADDDS (or what ever it is called).
    Would have no baring on anything with the Series Link.

    It would have 100% to do with the auto-deleting of recordings, because you have filled your disk, and the system needs to clear room to record something.

    So this would be a setting for every recording, SL or not? Default value would be yes?

    Kinda....
    Just like it is now, the defaults would be your user defined defaults

    So for Manual/Individual Recordings, you can set the value at the time of setup of the Recording.

    For Series Links/AutoRecords, you can set the option so that it is auto applied after the recording occurs.

    -------

    Other then that, it will be continued to be "toggled" via MyPlaylist-BLUE BUTTON

    I think this would work, but I'm finding the new suggestion a little difficult to read. Does the following look a little easier to read, with brackets surrounding the recording options and default options underlined?

    New SERIES LINK recording options. RECORD: [First Run|Repeat|Both]; KEEP AT MOST: [1|2|3|4|5|10|ALL]; WHEN LIMIT REACHED: [Delete Oldest/Stop Recording]; AUTO DELETE WHEN DISK FULL?: [Yes|No]

    Now a question about the new "behavior" if this is implemented. Will programs recorded with ""AUTO DELETE WHEN DISK FULL" set to "NO" be marked with a blue (K) indicator like current KUID programs? Or will there be a new indicator?

    Great minds think alike. I actually changed the SURVEY formatting earlier today. Take a look and let me know what you think.

    If that's still problematic, I will just make it 4 lines deep on the survey form.

    Seems to me that if auto-delete is set to "no", that program will be treated no differently by the HR20 than a program that was "Blue-buttoned", so I would think the same designator should apply in both cases. Just my .02, tho. /s

    Thanks so much for pointing this out, SS! The request is definitely for the text-only screen, as in the second screen shot... not for another GRID. No wonder folks may have been voting it low.

    Instead of: OPTION for TiVo style GUIDE grid.

    The WISH LIST request will be replaced with a new one:

    OPTION for TiVo-style GUIDE list (text-only, no GRID).


    That should make it clear what we are asking for. /steve

    I encourage EVERYONE to support this! It will make a standard certification for all media share equipment in our homes. We certainly want everything to play together! This will give us a common standard to look for when we are buying equipment. It will also enable users that are having problems with equipment that is certified, a path for "demand to comply" when issues are found.

    A lot of BIG industry leaders are jumping into this certification. That means that ALL equipment meeting this standard will be shared between each other like networked storage, DVR, media stored on PC's, etc....

    Please make the HR20 a DLNA certified product!

    Pretty impressive list of of supporters, IMHO. The only company conspicuous by it's absence is Apple, but does that surprise anyone? :) I think this is a request that should go on the Wish List during next week's update, but I'd love to get some more feedback first:

    The HR20 should be "Digital Living Network Alliance" certified, to allow interoperabilty with other DLNA compliant products.

    For all we know, the HR20 may already be 100% compliant, and certification is just a formality.

    Hi Steve,

    I am going to keep letting the poll go but I wanted to give you a update. It looks like a lot of people would like to see it added.

    Thanks

    Agree. I'll put it on there during the next round of updates.

    Thanks for running the poll. Knowing there is genuine interest before putting an item on helps keep the list from getting too bloated. I'm trying to reduce excuses for people to not take the survey! :lol:

    And as you know, polls/threads on an idea also often lead to helpful tweaks or enhancements to the suggestion as well. /s

    It is possible that it is compliant, however, jaywdetroit has purchased an HP media vault and has had some issues with getting it to show up on the HR20. HP's response was that since the HR20 is not labeled as a certified device it may not be compatible. So starts the campaign. If the HR20 had the logo, then HP would have to fix the problem.

    I did some testing today, and based on preliminary results, I realize that when I put the recent "KEEP UNTIL I DELETE" replacement proposal on the list, I may have mistakenly added a companion proposal that already works properly:

    A recording marked "KEEP" via the BLUE BUTTON should never be auto-deleted to free disk space and should not count against a SERIES LINK's "KEEP AT MOST" limit.

    I can confirm that items marked KEEP with the blue button are currently not counted against the "Keep at most" total. Can anyone confirm that "blue-buttoned" recordings are currently NOT being deleted for disk space reasons as well?

    If so, we can take this one off the list. TIA. /steve
