    I am not going to list the over 1000 problems the r15 has, but focus on 2

    since they been releasing all these so called fixes, and no new features, why have they not fixed these 3

    when you go to my vod screen while still watching program your dvr recorded why does it after you hit dash 2 times.. not have a warning that program wil be deleted?

    and after it is deleted, why do you go back to the info screen for the show that was just deleted INSTEAD of goin back to the myvod screen ?

    also when will they actually fix the thing to only prompt you to change channel to record show or shows on another channel not 5 minutes before, but to 1 minute or less before, where it belongs ??

    Because the "dash-dash" is most likely intended as a quick delete... Since the button is far enough away on the remote, it wouldn't be accidently hit... let alone twice. IMHO... I enjoy not having the confirmation screen (one less click, screen to deal with)... I kinda think of the 2nd dash, as the confirmation.
    Again, this is another one of those features, that could be improved with a "preference" setting... confirmation or not.

    Not sure what you mean here... Just ran it on my 10A3 system; hitting - - takes me right back to the next listing in MyVod... not for an info about the previous program.

    When... haven't heard a time frame on it.. but is there on the list of items.

    That is one serious long list of channels....

    I too, wish that DirecTV (or any provider) could offer every channel out there.
    Maybe someday.

    As for the Confirmation Screen.
    I have a 4 1/2 old son... and the TiVo confirmation screen doesn't stop him..
    So I would simply like to see it made into a user preference (confirmation or not), then those that want it, can have it... and those that don't... don't.

    As for the VOD..
    Ahh... Yes that would be more practical.

    As for improvements on the recordings....
    Little birdies are tell me soon... very soon, we should see another software update, that will address some of the SL issues.

    COMCAST?

    Thats a channel? I thought it was a provider. If it's a channel provided by comcast then my guess is you will never see it on anything but their system.

    DIRECTV carries most of the channels listed. If this is a joke, I did not get it.

    Regarding the list:

    "Comcast" refers to Comcast SportsNet... Which DirecTV doesn't carry all of them, and doesn't carry the HD Versions at all.

    As for the rest of the list:

    These are ON-DEMAND versions of the base channel... Since we don't have "on-demand yet"... DirecTV doesn't carry them

    InHD is exclusive to cable as a whole, not just Comcast. The InHD channels are from In Demand, the company that provides cable systems with PPV Content and the Subscription Sports packages.

    Chrishiatt if you would have done a little reseach you'd see D* does carry YES HD, whatever content is on DirecTV is it. YES HD only brodcasts Yankees home games in HD, the rest of the time it's a blank channel. Bravo HD, VH1 Mega Hits and Reality TV are no longer around. Nick Too is just Nick West, DirecTV has Showtime Extreme and you'll never see Stern On Demand as that's property of InDemand. And why you would actually want iShop, Mens Channel, Beauty & Fashion and TV Mall is beyond me.

    for the last year directv has either sued or is tring to, because they want to add comcast sports channels, and comcast says sure, as long as you let sunday ticket not be exclusive.

    and the same or similar about the inhd channels, they want add them but they want charge directv way more than they do a cable outfit

    since they could be viewed if directv would add them, it is on topic

    and more directv.. if they added the channels (sd versions) they would actually have the channel counts that the falsely claim they have now

    Chris, i agree that the "long" list of channels you listed, would be great if in fact D* had access to them all, but doesn't seem to be a "wish" that will happen......and yes, it is topic as it concerns D* programming, but a little off from post #1, which was answered in post #2. ;)

    then if directv does not add every channel in that long list, they will be in deep trouble, because ...

    when cable does not have to send channesl in analog.. that frees up lots of bandwith for them to add all those channels(which most of them already has that directv doesn't)

    also with verizon fios and att uverse , if directv dont add all these cheannles, then directv will be hurting

    I'm not sure this will get read here amongst the whining, but I do have an Issue, small but an issue.

    I have trouble reading the guide thru the Orange highlight. It seems to get blurred. I usually highlight the one before or after to see the one I want.

    1 it is not whining, it is stating facts

    2 it most likely is your tv, adjust your tvs color, or brightness or contrast or sharpness. if it is not any of them, then we have another issue that only some boxes are getting

    Dude why does every post you make consist of some huge list of demands that DirecTV fix or they will be in trouble? You know that gets sort of old and i'm sorry demanding they add X, Y, or Z to their channel lineup has NOTHING to do with the R15, DirecTiVo, UTV or any normal receiver that DirecTV might have. If their channel lineup is so horrible I would suggest that you try out the local cable company.

    if i had cable in the country or no line of sight issues with dish, id have them ......

    and the closest cable company to me, has more channels than directv

    Well then I would suggest OTA because D* doesn't seem to provide what you want either. I am sorry if I am seeming to be a jerk but every post you have made here and another forum are nothing but complaints. If I where that unhappy with a company I wouldn't deal with them. I would sooner have nothing, then something I hate.
