Let's say you set up to record channels 2 & 4 at 5pm. At 3pm you were watching Ch 5, and and 4pm you turned off the TV. Would channels 2 & 4 record at 5pm? I know some posters have posted LONG lists of what they consider to be problems and have offered some improvements. I must say that, even though I've only be a DirecTV and DVR user for a couple of weeks, I have come across most of what these posters have listed, and I think I agree with most of their suggested improvements. I have not seen anyone mention the following, though. I'll again use my example of setting channels 2 & 4 to record at 5pm. This time, though, I am watching Ch 2 just before 5pm. In that case I will get a "warning" at 4:55pm that the DVR must change to Ch 4, and I must "go there" or the recording for Ch 4 will be cancelled. On the other hand if I am watching Ch 4 just before 5pm, at 4:55pm it will say I must "go" to Ch 2, or the recording for Ch 2 will be cancelled. Huh!? Seems that if I have set up to record Ch 2 and Ch 4 at 5pm, as long as I was already on one of those two channels just before 5pm the DVR should be OK with that. It should only warn me if I was not on either of those two channels, and then, in that case, it should say I must change to Ch 2 or Ch 4, and give me a choice of which one to go to, or which one to cancel if I don't want to go to either of the two.
