<yawn> Please happen. . .
I just got it!!!
8/8/02, 12:20am PDT. Just turned off my 501 and TV to go to bed, and saw the LED blinking in the dark room.... I got it!
Just got mine this morning also. Seems to work well. I like the channel mapping of the locals and some of the changes to the PVR menu.
got it on both 501's.
I got mine last night and it made me run a Switch Check.
funny thing though...in the PTV screen I set it to NAME SORT and it did it fine...except ONE of the wife's GH was not sub-srted in date order.
I also with that it would sort daye in ASCENDING order. This way the oldest shows would be at the top...since I normally watch shows in sequence
Well the descending order is necessary in order to check if the recording came out, and also for events that you are eagerly awaiting.
So, it would be good to have both ascending and descending, in fact that would be more useful than name order - although I can see the value of name order for the 508 and 721 when the lists might get somewhat long to scroll through !
Got it today...
It arrived here today, too.
I hear ya K...maybe we need a sort ORDER button too?
We got our upgrade. I like it so far. Sort capability is certainly helpful. Now if we can just get that capability on the timer screen.
Also like the Recording management capability.
The local channel mapping will definitely make it easier for out of town visitors to find a channel by usingthe local TV listing in the paper. My mom never could figure out how to use any of our receivers when sh comes for a visit. At least now she can find something.
Is it me or was that warning screen not there before? When I click to erase a show, a pop-up asked if I'm sure. I could swear it wasn't there.
I haven't had one for awhile, but one of the things I remember about moving to the Tivo was that you had to OK deleting of shows...
That is a new feature. They must've had too many complaints from people accidentally deleting recordings.
finally! Got it!
Yea, nothing like deleteing a movie you waited months to record and not know when it will be on again.
That's what I thought. I wonder if we had anything to do with that feature being added. Dish told me that they were reading some of our suggestions to improve the 501.
How do you get to the local channel mapping(LCM) setup?
Does LCM work with over the air or only if you get locals from sat?
It only works if you are getting locals via Dish.
