Why can't I record right from the guide?

    Stupid question

    My HD DVR allows me to record programs right from the guide by pressing the R button (above list button)

    My genie does not. Have to go in and record from Info -> more info

    What am I missing :confused:

    Thanks! :)

    The "record" button works for me on my HR-34.

    Winters,...
    As does almost everyone else's....

    Sometimes a reboot clears up the odd thing. Is there anything else that seems out of whack?

    Try resetting your DVR.

    Is this question related to your other thread, or were you trying this directly from the Genie.

    I am trying directly on the genie.. That was a good observation about the other thread though..

    I'll try resetting it, glad I'm not the only one who's had this.

    Thanks guys
