Hello all, new to the forum and to DirecTV again (had them, then cable, then dish, now DTV again), and I have the new Genie HR44-500 with the new RC71 remote. The receiver is awesome and so much faster than anything I've used before with any of the TV services. I only have one small annoyance, and I hope someone here can help me with it, since my googling doesn't seem to be able to find the answer.
With my crappy DishNetwork VIP622 (they refused to upgrade me to the VIP722, even though I went through 3 of those 622 units before I gave up!) I was able to pause a show, then resume, etc... But when I would change the channel, it would warn me if I was recording. I have 3 young kids that love buttons, so this was a very useful nag screen. Now with my new DTV setup, and the RF remote, I pause a show, I sit on the remote or one of the kids presses a button and BAM! My show is no longer recorded and I lose where I was.
So, my question is, can I set it up so I can have a pop-up warning if I change the channel while I have a show queued? Or is there some way that I can return to the previous channel and have the recording resume? It is quite frustrating, and it happens quite often (probably more than it should) but I cannot find any way to resolve it. I've been through all of the menu options I could find to no avail. Please help! And thank you!
