Just out of curiosity: How do you get to your Playlist?

Choices:

1) "LIST" button on the remote
2) "MENU" > Recordings > Playlist
3) I use both methods equally

If you happen to use both LIST and MENU, but not equally, choose the method you use more often than the other...

I use the List button unless I'll also be checking my To Do List, then I go the long way around.

I can't imagine this poll would be anything but +90% List button.

It's still early and we have only a small number of voters, but we are at 93% using the remote's LIST button.

If nothing else, maybe we can convince DIRECTV to swap the order of "Playlist" and "Manage Recordings" in the menu, as this one use pattern that I'd bet DBSTalk members DO match national use.

I use a Harmony One remote. "List" is a soft button on the screen, and "Menu" is a hard button. I do not like the soft buttons, so use "Menu".

I think the poll is somewhat flawed in that there is no need to navigate to "My Playlist". Just hit "OK" twice on "Recordings".

OK, that's choice 1, you're using the discrete "List" command.

I think the poll is somewhat flawed in that there is no need to navigate to "My Playlist". Just hit "OK" twice on "Recordings".

And that's choice 2, because hitting OK twice on "Recordings" is activating "My Playlist" from the GUI. So no flaw in the poll for this.

Is the LIST button on the new remote? Or will it be going away like the Pause button did?

List: 4,387 times
Menu: 4 times.

:D

Curiosity is fine, but is there more to it than that as to why you created the poll?
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

I have a universal remote with a macro set up that goes into the playlist when I turn on the system -- so some of the time, I get to the playlist by magic. :D

I use the List button 100% of the time. I always wonder why the Recordings menu has the "My Playlist" icon before the "Manage Recordings" icon, even though "My Playlist" has it's own button. This just creates an extra button press during the long journey to the To Do List!

:confused:

I wrote to DirecTV a couple of weeks ago and suggested that they program the Green button on the remote to toggle to the To Do List from the Playlist.
Most of the time if what you want is not on the Playlist, the next thing you do is to check the To Do List. At least for me it is.
