I forget to mention since getting the Youtube feature Web Videos now appears in the Parental Settings menu and is set to block by default. For those still trying be sure to change this setting to Allow when you aquire the Youtube feature.


I have a HR-24/100 and this morning I change the settings in the parental menu and now can watch YouTube

Apparently there is some HD content on YouTube. Perhaps someone can give an exact title so the rest of us can see! Who knows (besides The Shadow)?!

Until you are able to get the Youtube feature they probably won't. Web Videos did not appear in my parental settings menu until after I was able to receive the Youtube feature as I posted.

My HR22-100 updated to 457 last night and YouTube is now functional. The HR23-700 is the only receiver of the 4 DVRs that does not have YouTube. It is also on 457. Rebooting it now to see if that helps.

Ok, a reboot after last nights fix has now enabled YouTube on the HR23-700.

As of now, all four DVRs HR24-500 (x2), HR23-700, and HR22-100 now have YouTube enabled.

Glad to see folks are getting this to work now .. rebooting is required to make it work if it's still not working for you.

HR20-700 0x456 - Forced a firmware download earlier today and got 0x456 still. No 0x458 for me apparently. No YouTube either.

Got a popup a few minutes ago saying the box needed to be reset. After reset still have 0x456 and now have YouTube. Ok, whatever...

Couldn't care less about YouTube. Just reporting results.

Doug, thanks for pursuing this to get the "techs" to issue a "fix" overnite. Some may not feel that youtube is a big deal, but now at least I don't have to look at it on my 19" desktop....:lol:

do other videos that contain ads play on directv? the ads I refer to are the ones that play before the video and the ones that show up at the bottom of the video after a few seconds.


I watched the Glee Chevrolet ad (See the USA in your Chevrolet) from Super Bowl Sunday via YouTube through DirecTV. Probably not quite HD, but it looked awfully good on my 40-inch Sony HD. Other versions of the same ad were also available. I also looked at the original ad by Dinah Shore from 1952.

The ad was shown again during Glee's Tuesday night broadcast.

I did not notice other ads before or during any YouTube videos on DirecTV.
