When I had my R16-500 installed on July 25th, the installer downloaded this software to my receiver. Should it have been an earlier version since it says above the National Release is 8/15?

Hey, I'm new to this forum. I have a question: I use to own a DirectV Tivo DVR receiver until last tuesday and received the new R16-300. The question I have is will DirectV have a update that will allow the R16-300 swap live TV like the Tivo receiver? It kind of suck that it doesn't swap tuners!!!!

Welcome to DBSTalk.com!

That's been a huge issue of debate here at DBSTalk. The are multiple threads/polls on this issue. There is talk that DirecTV will be coming out with a feature that is better than dual live tuner, but as of yet, no one knows what that is. There is a workaround that you can use to kinda get the functionality of DLB.

Some software releases go through staggered release so it is possible that your receiver was designated as one that could receive the software update before it was officially announced as a NR. If you have 0x1224, you have the most recent NR version of software for your R16.

Thanks Merg! Any word on when the R16-500 will be updated with software to have the ability to use the DVR Scheduler feature?

I believe it should be working for the R16. I know that my R15-300 can use DVR Scheduler. I thought that the R16 was included when they allowed the R15.

I think it's not available for the R16-500 yet....from the D* website: "DVR SCHEDULER works with the DIRECTV Plus® DVR receivers (R15, R16-300, R22), the DIRECTV Plus® HD DVR receivers (HR20, HR21) and DIRECTV DVR's with TIVO® service.* "

I wonder why it's only available for one type of R16? Software issue?

Hi Everyone. Merg, thanks for your reply on another thread for my query regarding live dual-buffering. Another question. Is there any way to get a 30-second skip on the R16-300. On my TiVo unit, it was instantaneous, once you programmed the remote. On the R16-300, it "skips" 30-seconds, but does so over a few seconds. Anyway to expedite this? Thanks.

What you have on the R16 is what is referred to as 30-second Slip. 30-second Skip is not available on the R16. It is available on the HR series DVR's and R22 DVR's though. It's something that R15/R16 users have been waiting for, but it seems likely that we won't see it.

That may be a typo, I'm not sure. Have you tried using DVR Scheduler on R16-500?

Stuart,
Yes I have tried to use it and it does nothing on the website or on my mobile phone. No confirmation, nothing on the receiver, nada.

I just posted a quite lengthy thread on my issue(s) with the R16-300. Any help is appreciated!

(And here I had no idea about the live tv swap issue since my #$&^@#^ box doesn't work. Doubly nice. :P )
