    I don't want this new update. Everything's working fine right now.

    It will buffer for around 10 minutes after you put it in Standby. After that it stops. I first observed this about three weeks ago. Prior to that I kept it on all the time, but I got tired of the BRIGHT! BLUE! LIGHTS! (even without the center ones, the others are pretty impressive in a dark room.)

    For more info, see this post:

    Hope all my recordings aren't jumbled, garbled, or otherwise miscued! :nono2:

    First release that I'm actually surprised to not see the OTA switch flipped to the ON position. Oh well, they've got 9 days to make good on their December 1st "guesstimate".

    You need a slingbox to monitor your HR20 wherever you are from your PC/Laptop or Cellphone (>:
    Highly recommended !

    I thought slingbox wouldn't work with DirectTV, you get all the channels? I thought they were encoded or something so you wouldnt be able to view the channels. Do you have slingbox Pro ? You can watch your recordings or just live TV?

    What about setting padding and other options on an Autorecord Keyword Search? Can someone who has 0xF6 set one up and try to set it to start recording 5 min early? Make sure you go back to see if the change was saved.

    More on my HR20's symptoms here.:nono2:

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Just so Earl can add it to the bug tracking, this existed in the prior version too.

    PlayList not updated correctly upon delete:

    Programs deleted by using the delete option at the end of watching a program, are not removed from the PlayList upon returning. If you try to play the deleted recording you will get something that looks like the unwatchable bug. If you exit out and return to the PlayLilst the program will now be deleted from the list.

    IMO this is a minor bug, it does not cause lockups or prevent or impact recording, but it should be corrected as it can cause user confusion.

    How long have you sat and waited to see if it does delete (without leaving the MyPlaylist). I know on the previous version, I had to wait about 5 seconds, and watched the entry delete.

    has anyone tested this - i know in the scheme of things this seems minor, but its VERY frustrating that i can NOT channel surf & currently (prior to today's update) it takes approx 4 seconds (with native Off) to change channels.

    My non high def D* TiVo can easily channel surf

    i am thankful that my main 3 items are a) lack of dual buffers b) time to change/view channels c) prioritizer limit of 50

    thanks! :confused:

    Channel "surfing"... no, it is probably on "par" with my experiences with my HR10-250...but it still is not at a speed, that one could call it "surfing"

    slingbox works great. I'm looking at it now and I use the Slingbox Classic (R15 remote). Check out this thread for more info.

    Early, you need a pseudonym. People don't get jobs because of their myspace profiles. Imagine your next interview is with someone who uses this forum. "Um, Earl given the amount of time you spent debugging my D* receiver, when will you be doing actual work?"

    I just tested it to check for timing and if it updated at all.

    I see 2 behaviors:

    What typically happens, I delete, it returns to the PlayList, and it stays on the list. I just deleted on and it is till on the list 2 min later.

    The exception (which I assume is what is suppose to happen), I delete it, it returns to the PlayList, the deleted show is on the PlayList, the screen refreshes and the deleted program is gone.

    Thanks, that's probably it. That has never happened for me before, but fortunately, Ole reliable (TiVO) also caught the program, so no blood, no foul.

    Although I did not rewind past the last 10 to 15 minutes of the show that was on. The status bar showed a full 90 minutes stored.

    Now this is promising. I have not gotten this release yet, but you give me hope that my recent bug last weeks will be corrected.
