Not a bad thing at all. And with the 6.x DirecTiVo software upgrade, that wait was reduced to 15-30 seconds for my 35+ Seasons Pass list. That was on a box with a slower CPU with less memory, so I don't see this as a "lack of horsepower" issue on the HR2x platform, but rather a database programming algorithm issue.
IComplain about that 'please wait' when you redid your tivo to-do list, but that long look ahead through 12-14 days of recordings to make sure everything was set to record properly and you knew about conflicts maybe wasnt such a bad thing.
Having to check the TODO list daily (or in some cases more than once a day) gets tired real fast, IMHO, even assuming folks have the time to do it. While I believe it should be automatic every time a new SL or single record is scheduled, a future recording is deleted, or the PRIORITIZER is re-ordered, we have a request on the Wish List for the option to force an immediate rebuild of the TODO list using all available GUIDE data. For those that like this idea and haven't already voted for it. please do so at the link below. TIA. /steve
