Yeah, I could. Haven't run out of slots yet, so haven't bothered. Think I'm up to 88 or so, but some are temporary.

I'm running about 45 SL's on my primary HR2x box, but I'm probably recording 100 different shows through the use of boolean searchs.

My favorite news channel has "at 4:30" "daybreak" "midday" "at 5" "at 6" "nightbeat". to top that off, if you do a SL for "nightbeat" you get all but Thursday nights news for some wierd reason... at least they all start off with "KVUE News" so I have an autorecord on that one... still even on my HR34 I am only at 46...

HR34, HR20x3, HR22, HR23, H24, H21

I'm more surprised that anyone can find more than 50 different series to record.


I seriously doubt that if you have been paying any attention--and you've been a member since 2007?

Besides that, obviously DirecTV knows it is an issue or they wouldn't have bumped it to 100 in the HR34.
Love DirecTV on Demand? ISPs don't.

As you read posts claiming that OTA/ATSC is not important, remember that you are at the mercy of the individual stations and their negotiation status with DirecTV (not to mention missing out on subchannels). And these negotiations are not "one and done" but will come up every once in a while--and at that point you can lose your stations completely if there is an impasse.

...it has nothing to do with awareness. You missed the point. I am surprised that anyone can find more than 50 different series WORTH recording.

Well, even if it was only series I would disagree with you, although I have cut back since my Tivo days. But when you take series + wishlist, easy to get to 50.
