My Mom watches the Top Chef Bonus videos / competitions that the show only offers online thru the YouTube function on the HD DVR.
My comments and opinions are my own and not necessarily those of DirecTV.

+1. Good concept to add it, but once again, poor execution, ie media share.

Nice idea,but w/o the FF & RW buttons,I have NO interest in it !

I don't use it a lot (since I don't use You Tube a lot on my computer either). But when I have used it, I've really appreciated having it. It's nice to be able to watch a You Tube video my wife and I really want to see together. And that's such a pain to do on the computer.

I've used it quite a few times, but you know my request.

I'm waiting for the time when you can sign in to your Youtube account and view your subscriptions.

I prefer watching YouTube on my PC or even my iPod Touch.

I will admit that DirecTV's implementation for viewing YouTube, although a bit clunky, is much better than Verizon FiOS.

I don't have D* hooked to On Demand but I have watched Youtube on my Xbox 360 with the new app. Just like with the Wii option I see it as a novelty like the Facebook app compared to what you can do with it on a real computer. Even the mobile browser site m.youtube.com has features the Youtube app on an iphone lacks.
