Discussion in 'DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion' started by Steve, Aug 6, 2007.
Steve - A minor tweak: The first post from the other thread also states that the Info Banner can be used to start DoublePlay if it's not active, so instead of only showing the program name from the other tuner, it could show "Start DoublePlay". It's also an active selector, so it's another way to start DoublePlay - the DOWN shortcut is not eliminated. That is, the user can move the highlight to that option in the Info Panel and press SELECT.
When DOUBLEPLAY is active, display and link the other tuner's Channel/Show Title on the current tuner's INFO bar.
I just replied in the other thread as well ... Is this OK?
When DOUBLEPLAY is active, display and link the other tuner's Channel/Show Title on the current tuner's INFO bar, otherwise display a link to start DoublePlay.
I haven't read thru all the pages but I had Dish for 1 yr. One feature on their DVR that I wish Directv would implement on their HD DVR is the ability to have picture-in-picture. I would like to turn 1 of the tuners to 1 football game and then in the PIP window have another game running. Or, watch a recorded program and have something in the PIP window that is live.
I apologize if this is a repeat request.
Think we could tweak the record partial wish item to have it also have the option to just trim the show that starts later or the one that starts earlier by default on all instances so you dont have to go through your priority list for the shows and re-arange them all again based on ones that come on earlier/later so you don't miss the part of the show your more interested in.
I'd really like a message or notification of any conflict in my series recording options, and then be presented with a box to choose what to do, ie. which one to trim off. I hate having to go through my scheduled recordings each week and see if something is conflicted. This becomes a problem when shows new seasons start and you dont realize till late that there is a conflict now.
Here's something a bit different. I have the HR20 and HR23 DVRs and was going through to reorganize the SLs between the two. Jumping back and forth between the two Prioritizers I lost track of which DVR I was on. So I thought wouldn't it be nice if there could be some kind of identification shown on the top banner, maybe just to the right of the DirecTV logo. And, if it were user set it would be even better.
I second the motion. I don't know how many times I have to go to the TV input button to see where I am.
Oh, the woes of having too many DVRs!
FWIW, during LIVE TV or recording PLAYBACK, the "-" key will display the unique receiver ID.
Wouldn't help in jdspencer's case, tho.
The other way is to look at the remote and see if AV1 or AV2 is selected. Or with my Harmony 880, I can look at the display. But, a display on the top banner would really be nice, possibly the last three digits of the RID could be used?
It could be as little as a colored dot on the info banner, based on the remote code set for the DVR. No dot for the default, so that people with one DVR aren't impacted.
I liked the older receivers where you could select your color schemes for the menus, grids, ... Bring that back and you should be AOK
"Completed Items" in the Wishlist that aren't really done:
Ability to cycle through the custom channel lists while in Guide.
There's no "cycling." There should be a quicker way to change the list, like one button to actually cycle.
Option to disable FFx1 autocorrection.
There's a lot of autocorrection (too much) after FFx1. And it sometimes goes nuts. Options for all FF speeds would be nice. And (OT) there's even autocorrection after Pause in live TV.
I agree with this request. I loved this feature with Dish and hope that Directv would bring out. It's perfect for sports...
I thought DirecTV got rid of FFx1 autocorrect prior to the 2007 NFL season. See here. If it's back, you might want to report it as an issue. Just my .02.
FWIW, stopping FFx1 will probably never be perfect for MPEG-4 because there are so few keyframes available and the odds are there won't be one to latch onto sitting at the exact time code you want play to resume. That said, the error should be under a second on average, IMHO.
Our requests usually get addressed in spirit, and not to the letter. I believe this one was satisfied by the YELLOW menu option to change playlists. Not what we asked for, I'll admit, but more consistent with the D* GUI, and easier to switch lists now than before the request was made.
What would be cool if they had a custom mix channel. To watch NCAA Football games of your choice up to 8 games on one screen. or MLB,NCAA at the same time or any channel actually.when like 2 or 3 games are close to ending and other games have started. just a thought.basically choose what you want to see in your mix channel. I would say more than 8 screens but then bandwidth would come into play. But the bigger the screen the better,right?
I would report it as an issue if I thought it would do any good. But as you well know, there have been way too many bug reports that seem to have been completely ignored. I for one am fed up with filing reports only to get no response back whatsoever.
D*'s practice of acting dumb () makes them seem deaf as well.
Here's one I don't think I have seen:
"Record this exact show again." Not the series... Just this one show based on title and or description.
Useful if you catch a show mid-show, and it's not showing up again (yet) in the guide.
Would be nice if it worked from the history screen too for those, "Oops I did not mean to delete that." moments.
