Find and record your favorite PPV Events

Don't forget to set your team to record the entire season.

Use the search as a quick and easy way to find out what is coming and when it will be on.

If you like sports, you'll want to know about the new feature in Search! Just go to the Menu, hit Search and you'll see a new icon labeled Sports. There, you can choose to follow your favorite teams as well as get a view of all upcoming broadcasts of all sporting events. Choose an event and hit Record, and it's all set to go. Each sport is branded with a small logo, helping you find—or skip—specific sports. If it's NFL football or any special extra package, make sure it's recording on a channel you receive.

Thanks for the Quick Look, everyone!  Looks great!

 

I saw this new feature on my HR44-500 last night.  I went in and set up a few favorite teams & sports. I didn't realize I could auto-record though. 

 

One question:  Where do these recordings reside?  On "my side" of the hard drive or on DirecTV's side?

It is on the consumer side. You will lose space when you set up a recording.

IIRC the PAC 12 sports network has not come to an agreement for carriage by DirecTV,

I'm sure he's well aware and just used this thread to get a dig in,  his post history shows him active in the PAC 12 thread.

Thanks Scott, dettxw and Laxguy!  Very well put together 1st Look.  This will help a lot of people navigate through the new feature.

Is this available now, or next software update?
I'm not seeing it yet.

As far as I know this is a Genie feature only.

Based on the last screenshot in the first post, Soccer appears to be an option.
