Is the showcase tab activated yet and what will this feature do?
LamontCranston has made a video that we'll see as the first showcase... someday.
Yes it activated but DIRECTV has only pushed a few things to it so far and that was back in April.
Question for others that got the DVR video in their showcase folder. When I try to play it HR20 say seraching for authorized content, anyone else seeing that?
I have two showcases in a Nascar and one DVR Welcome one. The DVR welcome showcase shows "seraching for authorized content" only when at the beggining of the play and then just shows a logo with elevator music. The Nascar showcases play as expected.
That's exactly what I see on both my HR20's. Wonder when D* will get around to deleting that?
I hope D* will delete the whole showcases tab.......what a waste of space. I would like to be able to add my own personal tabs.
Have not seen a showcase since the 10th of April.
I don't believe the showcases are working correctly.
I have NEVER seen a showcase on my HR20.
I hope they do not delete showcases, as a Sunday Ticket subscriber they are needed for highlights, and such.
Others have posted here that there had been content posted to the showcases earlier in the year, but I suspect that there are others such as myself that have never seen them.
PLEASE D* get them working before football season!
The showcases are stored on the disk in a designated area outside of your own personal storage space, so they won't have any impact on your recordings.
Maybe you weren't talking about storage space, though? The Playlist already groups programs by name, and you can already filter the playlist very easily to show only certain types of programs, so I can't think of what other tabs you'd like to have.
I currently have three showcases, and they've been there a LONG time!
Sat 4/7 3:03a NASCAR like never before!
Sun 4/8 3:13a NASCAR HotPass Highlights!
Tue 4/10 2:03p DIRECTV Plus Welcome Video
Haven't seen anything since then ...
Can you play the D*+ Welcome Video or do you get the searching for authorized content?
I'm asking about this since I don't know if there's a problem/bug with the HR20's since my R15 has this program and plays it fine but the HR20's have it but won't play it?
It would not be the first showcase, there have been other showcases.
..and I'm as anxious as the rest of you to see in on my DVR!
Does the DVR have to be networked in order to get the showcases? And does anyone know if the showcases will be working for the NFLST Highlights on Demand this season?
For your 1st question, no it doesn't need to be networked for the showcases. Don't know about the 2nd question, sure would be nice if they got that working this year though.
Yeah, I wasn't talking about storage space. I was talking about waste of space on my screen where I have never seen any show appear.
I know you can filter by certain programs, but I would like for my wife and kid to have their own personal tabs.
I have never seen a showcase on either of my HR-20's.
Yeah, it would be nice to categorize things the way you want. For example, a movies tab and a show's tabs. Or Luca's shows and Vito's shows.
I'm also getting a message "Searching for authorized content", and if you press PLAY, you will see a progrress bar of 8 minutes length, with the current position at the end. After a moment, music plays with a generic DIRECTV splash screen. Stop returns to the playlist.
My guess is the showcase expired, and instead of being deleted, it was left in the list.
I guess I don't see it as even taking up screen space, because if there was no "Showcase" tab, there would be still be a tab bar there. They have to display the current sort order of the Playlist somewhere ...
