Well, yes, they could have. But the new banner already has information overload. ToDo can be accessed with the List button easily.


What key sequence would that be exactly?

That's my question too. I immediately went to the LIST button to look for this feature and couldn't find TO DO anywhere.

I know how to get to the ToDo list. I'm just saying that they had an opportunity to put it an easier to access place and failed to do it again. Minor annoyance.

Ah, Bill just got confused, I'm sure he meant the Menu instead of the List. I knew what he was talking about. No reason to argue, I certainly didn't mean to cause a problem. We've been asking for a quicker way to access the ToDo list for years and it seems to fall on deaf ears at D*. Again, it's just a minor annoyance.

Sure there are, on channels that broadcast in 720p.


Yes, I meant by the TV; i.e., once the signal leaves the receiver. Which also holds for 480i :)

It the same there. No TO DO. There is Manage Recordings which I would like to see on the Channel Banner. It would fit if DirecTV change Audio/Video to A/V and Favorites to Fav which would leave plenty of room for Rec Mgr

That's a good question. I was never able to get it to work in the previous release however.
I read a post previously in this thread which sounded like there's no longer the capability to delete bookmarks.


It was strange prior to this release for deleting bookmarks. While paused in playback, hitting the yellow button brought up four options which included "jump to bookmark". After scrolling to a particular bookmark, hitting the "-" dash button twice deleted the bookmark. Go figure, but at least there was the ability.

I didn't think you could turn the screen saver off. :confused:


I was told pressing the dash key three times in a row when the screen saver is active permanently disables it. He entered it once and hasn't had to enter it since. I neglected to ask if he was on a UPS or if he has reset the box (i.e. does the setting survive resets).

Since I do not have the issue, I have not tried it. But people are still complaining about this issue in the official D* forums, as well as the fact there is no visible way to turn it off.

Why would one want to disable the screen saver?

I'll have to give that a try.

Because it's utterly useless unless you have a plasma or CRT TV that is susceptible to burn-in.

Not quite useless. If you listen to the Sonic Tap music channels the song information is displayed on the screen saver.

If you can turn off the screen saver with three presses of the dash button, can you turn it back on the same way? I haven't tried this, as I don't want to disable the screen saver permanently.

It's displayed in the Info banner when the screensaver isn't active, and the banner doesn't time out, so it's still there.

But completely useful for those situations.

So why is it such a biggie for those who don't? Who wants to look at a static image for ten minutes or whatever it's set to? For some, present company excepted, it'd be a matter of control. "I control whether there's a screen saver or not"..... Sheesh.

Since the update, I have been having issues with MRV on my HR22-100. I keep getting the circle with the dash that tells you that you can’t play from this DVR because too many other people are streaming content from it (or whatever the official message actually says). If I reboot the DVR, I can start streaming from it again. I've gone through the house and put all other DVR's in standby, including the HR22-100, and I still have the issue. The only thing I've found that will let me stream again is to reboot the HR22-100.

Thanks,
Rich

It's not a big deal to me, and I doubt it's really a big deal to anyone. It's simply an annoyance. It's an extra button press when I return to watching TV.

Just catching up on some shows from wk 5/16 - 5/21 - about 4 shows on our main HR10-200 all say 'The episode was deleted because of a problem retaining the program (2004)'. No-one deleted the programs - I did ask the cats to check :) - it seems this was the same week as the update - any ideas what is going on?

Sounds like the DVR had a problem retaining the programs.

The three dash did not work for me.

(not surprised, really)

If somebody else could confirm, we can then call this 'Busted'.

So, you have to pick up the remote anyway, press play once anyway, and you get annoyed over a fractional second of more time and a minute bit of energy?

(understood there are other ways than the remote).
