I just switched over from Dish.... and have a newbie question...
I have a Directv HR24-500 receiver, with a RC65X remote.
When I look thru the guide list (after pressing the guide button on the remote), I don't see a month+day+year date that a show was first aired, just the year is shown. For example, the display in the guide for today's Dr OZ show says '2013'. On Dish, the date would show up as 'Aug 2, 2013'. A date showing only the year is not very helpful. In this example, Dr OZ's show happens nearly everyday. How do I tell if a show if 'new' or a rerun from earlier in the year? (they both would have '2013' dates showing in the guide).
Is there a way to show the date like Dish's guide does? I called Directv and the helpful customer service rep said it's not possible. Great. This is a big difference (well, at least to me!) between Direct and Dish :-(
Does it require a different Directv receiver?
