I think the delay in implementing DVR scheduler for Tivo units is just so people will be lured into the "upgrade for free" area.

Been away for a few days and forced calls on all three of my legacy TiVo receivers, but only the two SD receivers were upgraded to 6.4 - the HD HR10-250 has not been upgraded. On the SD receiver I had months of programs listed in the "Deleted Recordings" folder ...

I forced the update myself, and got the 6.4a update just fine. Just a few notes from my end....

- Had to re-enter Select->Play->Select->30->Select and Select->Play->Select->Pause->Select
- Entering a channel number in the Channel List actually works again
- My Recently Deleted List was at 24 Items
- The order of the Recently Deleted list was when you actually deleted the program. The most recently deleted items at at the top, the oldest deleted item is at the bottom, and subject to be overwritten.
- If you delete an item from the suggested list, then recover it, it will show up in the Now Playing list. Apparently a feature.
- What's this Audio DRC in the Audio Settings? Did I miss that in a previous update?
- Program Clipping defaults to On. I set it to off.
- Still wish I could set my default recording option to start 1 minute early and end 5 minutes late.


I didn't see a reply to this, so if I missed it....

The 30 second skip option must always be re-entered after a reboot.

The channel number entry problem you describe has, for me, always been fixed by a reboot. It's not software specific.

You must have completely skipped 6.3? Audio DRC has been there since 6.3 first came on the scene.

This was expected. Now, if the option was no longer available, I would be disappointed.

My box has been rebooted several times. Go figure.

You must have completely skipped 6.3? Audio DRC has been there since 6.3 first came on the scene.

That's the consensus. It probably appeared in a previous upgrade, but nobody noticed before.

I did get the update, on my R10, but still no joy on the scheduler. Any word on when DirecTV will ad them to customer accounts?

I went to the remote scheduler on the web site this morning to schedule something on my HR20 - 700 and noticed the my HR10-250 was now in the list. That brought me here.

My HR10-250 called home in the early hours of this morning, but is still running 6.3f. I had it call in again and now have the 6.4a version after a restart.

I attempted one scheduled recording (while still on 6.3f) and noticed that the options to record once or series are greyed out. The confirmation message came back that I had scheduled the series.

The HR10-250 will show up on the scheduling site but it won't actually schedule a recording until 6.4 installs.

I have an actual bug to report! On my HR-10 the recently deleted list only shows the first page (8) of deleted items (there are 24 in the folder), trying to page down or use the down arrow to get to the next page results in the empty folder with "recently deleted folder definition" message. To recover, I must exit using the "left" key as instructed to do, then I can re-enter the folder and repeat. Nothing is lost, but I can only access the last 8 recordings deleted! My HDVR2 works properly when I enter the folder and my other HR-10 will update this evening, so I don't have a comparison to it yet. Any one else have this problem? All my deletions were made after the update. The folders were empty initially.

I have a SD tivo and my deleted folder shows 19 items and I can scroll or page down and see all of them. They are listed in order of deletion not recorded date. You must have a bug in your DL.

My HDVR2 (SD) also works correctly, it is only a problem on my HR-10 (HD).

IIRC you were left out in the cold for a long time on 6.3f, if so you must have really ticked someone off at DirecTV :lol:

6.4 installed on 2 HR10-250's and both accepted and completed recordings scheduled from the DirecTV site the same day.

I wish it would let us remotely schedule recordings of HD local channels received via antenna.

I downloaded 6.4 via forced download. My total in the deleted shows folder was 259 programs. One problem I noticed was that it locked up with the record red light on and could not power up/off the receiver. My model is the SD-DVR 40 w/500GB HD installed. A hard power off/on got the unit working again. This was the first problem I noticed so far....

D* will not allow me to schedule to record a show on the website. It says I do not have a DVR.

:P And here I thought DIRECTV liked me, they really liked me!

I actually forgot that I had issues with 6.3f ... so you've got a better memory than I do! I looked it up, and on 2/13/08, 9 days after the 6.3F rollout started, I still didn't have it:

Still on 6.3e here ... no love yet on the staggered rollout.


It's now 8 days after the 6.4a rollout started, so I jumped the gun on complaining by a day! :lol:

(I only wish I knew how long it took me to get 6.3f - I wonder what the deal is with this HR10 ... maybe it's afraid of change!)

The list problem has corrected itself! All is working properly now. Both of my HR-10's and my HDVR2 are running 6.4a with no problems. Just a note about the recently deleted items, they are the first to be recorded over, even before previously recorded suggestions. My deleted folders were all empty again last night, even with a fair number of suggestions remaining, both older and newer.

Has anyone received this update on their Samsung DirecTV TiVO?

Not me, and I never got 6.3f either.

My R-10 has updated to 6.4a just fine.

My S4120R is always plugged in and I've forced daily calls for the past couple of weeks.

It has no trouble making "successful" calls every time.

It never got 6.3f (as most posters have reported their Samsungs never did) and it has yet to get 6.4a.

I haven't seen a single poster, here or elsewhere, report 6.4a on a Samsung yet.

There is clealry an issue.

My R-10 installed it, with just its regular phone call, already.

Both units are stock and unhacked.
