If it's not data provided to DirecTV they can't provide it to you.


Sure. DirectTV gets their guide data from zap2it from Tribune. So if they don't list it then direct can't show it.
I think they need a new provider of guide data. In all the years I had Dish I never had an issue with air date. I don't know who provided their guide data or if they did it themselves.

I noticed that the new DirecTV iPhone app shows season and episode numbers. Much faster to use the app to record and setup Series Links.

I just got this today so I haven't utilized it at all (I watch so much tv as it is, I'll probably try to avoid it anyways...) but I noticed something odd. When I went to sleep last night my DVR was at 38% available, and now it's at 31%, and there aren't any new shows in my list of recordings.
Color me confused.

DirecTV takes a larger percentage of the HDD to use for Genie.

Most people aren't going to look elsewhere for recorded shows.

To take it a step further, I would like to see Genie content on the Whole-Home Network

This Genie thing is taking off? Any modern day Pixar remakes of Alladin in the works?

This is an update I didn't request, don't want, and won't use. It has seriously messed up my HR34.

From an OnLine Article from FierceCable Wednesday, October 4th, 2012

Edited down from original article length for posting here.


"DirecTV (Nasdaq: DTV) will soon begin marketing Genie, a high-definition DVR that can automatically record TV shows based on a subscriber's viewing habits, VP of Public Relations Darris Gringeri told FierceCable Wednesday.

Genie is the new brand for DirecTV's Home Media Center, which runs on the HR34 servers and C31-700 RVU client devices manufactured by Pace (LSE: PIC). The DVR contains five tuners and 1 terabyte of storage space. Gringeri said DirecTV plans to launch the Genie product on Oct. 11."

Hmmm.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I have DirecTV currently but I have had Dish in the past. I've actually installed both systems and each one has their perks. I also did my masters thesis on the satellite companies not providing local programming in 2009. A year into my program they started giving the local channels which almost crippled my thesis, but I changed my focus from local channels to a marketing perspective.

With that said, I was just curious on what the general preference is with most of the people on here. Dish or Direct, what do you think?

Welcome! We need more scholars! :)

You'll find that 98.3% of the folks posting in this thread prefer DIRECTV®.

But go to the Dish side of the forum and it'll be reversed. Read about a bit and you'll find the new strengths and weaknesses of each service.
