The long delays, if you have them, will go away. They are a bug...
Yea, about as fast as it took D* to add all those missing HBO/MAX HD feeds...that they originally said would be added over 2-3 YEARS ago.
Sorry, but I'm so DONE waiting on them to fix all their "bugs", as well as on all the missing basic HD we should ALREADY have had by now!
Bottom line is that this software should have NEVER been rolled out in the current state that it is now.
And while some people have issues with the hr20 and such n the new hd GUI, not everyone does. In fact I'd guess most don't, I have no issues with it, and neither do my folks, believe me, I'd hear about that big time....
Well you must be VERY lucky then...because I AM hearing it big time, from many clients, all with different HR2x versions. And most of them are getting as fed up with this crap as I am. Probably because they (too) realize this is NOT "normal operation" for a DVR - regardless of how much D* CSR's & fanboys say otherwise. They are asking me what can be done - my answer is "they need to vote with THEIR wallets" as well...
Of course, I'm sure there's lots of other folks that are tired of these software issues as well - but have bought into the same lies the D* CSR's tried to convince me on. (but didn't...)
Dish doesn't charge you monthly to use the 211?
No, & that $40 is good for ALL 211's on your account. So, you could have 4 211 receivers & it would only cost you $10 one-time to have DVR on ALL of them.
Also they do NOT charge anything to use EHD's on DVR receivers, nor is there any limit on how many EHD's you can use. The ONLY limitation is that you cannot swap an EHD from a 211 with any (actual) DVR receiver, & visa versa.
You can also swap EHD's among ALL your DVR's tied to your account; they are NOT tied only to a specific receiver. Yet another reason why I want to switch; there is NO reason D* couldn't have done this as well
