    Repeat of earlier request. That is, the ability to delete the recording being watched with the two times pressing of the "-" key. Usage of it for deleting recordings off of the recording list is great! Why not real time? It's not functioning for any purpose during viewing of a recording. Great time saver.

    Just to set the record straight, "-" does display the RID if pressed during playback. Whether or not it should is another discussion! :)

    RID=Receiver ID? I would like the button to perform a useful operation. I can get the receiver ID by pressing menu/setup and there it is. I suggest that I want to delete an active recording a lot more than I want to see what my receiver ID is.

    I'm sure it's been requested, so put me down as a vote for yes:

    Wrapping up and down scrolling through menus. Ie. I'm on the first menu choice and instead of scrolling down 7 times to get to the bottom.. why not "up" one?

    It's still on the list, even though 24 has been canceled. :)

    Continue to scroll the cursor to the bottom (or top) when reaching the top (or bottom) of a list or menu pane. E.g., move from "Aiwa" up to "Zenith" in the remote code list, or "Zodiac" down to "24" in the PLAYLIST.

    If you haven't already, why not visit the Wish List survey and give this one a :up:? Registration is painless, and only required to prevent ballot stuffing. :)

    I'd like to see an option to turn on a warning message when you try to change the channel while paused. I've got a RF remote so if you bump any number key or channel +/- key while the remote is facing in any direction, you lose what you've paused. I know the channel change buttons are far away from the pause/play buttons, but man. So many times I've reached for the remote on the other side of the couch and in the process lost what I've been watching. It feels like I'm playing "operation" each time I pick up the remote. ;)

    On Dish when I would change the channel and I was paused it would ask if I wanted to switch back to live mode before I changed. I would appreciate it if DTV added this as an option in the menu for klutz's like me.

    This is one of my favorite complaints. There are so many different buttons that can cause you to lose the live buffer that I no longer use it. Ever. (Well, not for more than a minute or two.) If I see something I like in it, I press Record.

    Great minds think alike. :) I actually championed this current and long-standing Wish List request myself!

    Ignore CHANNEL UP/DOWN or # keys while watching recordings, to prevent inadvertently exiting PLAYBACK or clearing the LIVE buffer.

    If you haven't already, please be sure to take the survey and give it a :up:.

    NEW? IDEA for DirecTV HR2x: Return on Off and after Recording on Off - idea is to have the box return to your favorite channel while off (or after unit records in the off state) so that you have 90 minutes previous of your favorite channel. For me, that's an HD news channel.

    I think we've got that covered with this request:

    "Return to Channel." When entering Standby, option to auto-switch the foreground tuner to a user-designated channel or the last channel tuned. The intent is that when the unit is turned on, that channel is being buffered.

    If you like the idea, take the Wish List survey and give it a :up: ! :)

    I really don't understand why when I hit 'list' it cannot go to where the show is that I last watched...? Why start at the top again??

    I have a habit of using the left arrow button on remote to return to playlist's last opened folder. That must be the reason I have this habit.

    I don't mind the opening of LIST at top but I sure do wish we had triple-tap search to find programs faster!

    I agree. If you haven't already voted for this Wish List request, please do!

    Always return to most recently accessed position on MY PLAYLIST when using LIST.

    In the meantime, I use armchair's LEFT ("back") work-around as well.

    As a result of this thread/poll, the following request was added to the Wish List:

    WHOLE HOME setup options for TO DO LIST and HISTORY sharing, similar to PLAYLIST sharing.

    If you haven't already, please take a second to update your survey and let DirecTV know how you value this request. This, and any other requests added since your last visit, will be highlighted in blue. TIA! :)

    I'd like to see two things done to the fast forward/reverse of the search feature.
    1) Make the fast-forward back-up times adjustable via menu for each speed. I usually use speed 3 and when I stop, it's almost impossible to hit the place I want. Usually the DVR backs up Waaaaay too far. Either I have a fast reaction time or it's designed for drunks.

    2) Do away with the backup in reverse. When you see a place you want to stop, that's it!! You don't want to go further backward.

    I'd also like to see a "DON'T SHOW" option for the banner included in banner times (menu). When I change stations, I know where I'm going and don't like the banner hanging there, covering up the video. Even with the shortest time, it seems to hang there forever.

    As previously mentioned in 2010, I think most people would love to have a combined DVR scheduler for all DVR's on the network. It would be nice to not have to keep up with which series is recording on which receiver. Maybe someday we will be able to control what is recording on each receiver from any room. I know you can do this from the non DVR receivers but not the HR receivers.

    It seems to me that since many of the list items were delivered already, and also voted upon...any new list should be a new list (and with new votes). That's just one person's view.

    Now that the HR34 and C31 clients have seen the light of day, it kind of explains why DirecTV hasn't devoted any programming resources to a unified HR2x scheduler. Whether we agree with it or not, it looks like their corporate vision is whole home management will be RVU-based, with each client able to access and modify the RVU server's To Do List and Series Manager.

    That said, I'd still love to be able to access any DirecTV DVR's TDL and Series Manager (the HR34 included) remotely from a web browser, like you can with DVRs from Cablevision, Comcast, Verizon, et al.

    2 wishes:

    1 - Unbury the To-do List option. Needs to be more readily accessible.
    2 - Return the enablement of closed captioning to a toggle vs the different steps to enable/disable (yellow->right->right->right->down->select, same plus another down to disable).

    This request is over two years old. Originally I requested that we use the red button to erase a recording while playing it. At the time, as I recall, if you pressed on the red button while playing a recording you got a SWIM status. That's no longer the case as now you just get a "bonk". The SWIM status is now combined with internet connection status and displayed when the dash is pressed once. So the red key seems available. Why not use it to erase a recording while it is being played, just like it is used in conjunction with erasing an item on the List. Why not?
