Was doing some searches and found a few You Tube flags.
I knew the last software had this feature bundled in with it, but i never really thought of it until today. I cant wait till this is fully rolled out. I can see this being a cool thing. I tried this on my HR24 to no avail :(

Just followed your video and I had the same results as you with my HR24. For some reason I can't get any YouTube search results to appear.

I'm not sure that the YouTube Videos have been "turned on" yet for everyone.

Also, it's 100% necessary to have networking hooked up and working on your DVR. This will not work on non-DVRs.

I tried it out over this weekend and it worked....HR21. I took my son to see True Grit at the theatre. When we got home, we did a quick search for True Grit (the John Wayne version) and there was a quick YouTube trailer that the HD-DVR found via the VOD search. So I played it and it worked great.

Wonder how good this will be on my 1M DSL connection?

I know 'On Demand' movies take forever to download. Even a 3 minute karaoke song takes a few minutes.

Just don't want to pay more for faster internet right now, when all I use it for is basically surfing the web and paying bills.

My 1M DSL will play most web content up to 360p without problem. Anything above that and it will get choppy. Most YouTube content plays just fine.

Just remember this is not yet a supported feature, so CSRs will have no knowledge of it-unless you get one of the ones who are members here.

Is there any danger of getting some sort of malware or virus from playing YouTube content on a device that (as far as I know) has no anti-virus or anti-malware program installed?

Having not seen the DirecTV implementation of YouTube I won't comment on PQ. But, the YouTube app in my Samsung LED TV is quite good. Of course this depends on the original source.

The PQ is not very good. The one good thing I can say though is that 16:9 videos are handled correctly, and take up the full screen.

There are HD videos that I've seen which are actually pretty good...much better PQ than the other stuff out there.

But of course...its not true HD. ;)

Which is disappointing, because the HD on YouTube is actually pretty good.

Do you have a timetable for national rollout that you can share?

I woke up this morning to find that my HR23 had rebooted. I checked the software version and it was still at 452. My next thought was that DirecTV forced a reboot to enable the YouTube search. But, it didn't.

Couldn't get it to work on my HR20. Searched for "Evolution of Dance" and got nothing. Is there a trick to this or is it only available on certain 20s?
