Could the "Racing" category be any more anemic? :nono2:

 

There are sub-categories to Racing.

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


Do you think we'll see it on the HR2x's, or are the rest of us left out?

I guess like other icons that don't show immediately after an update, I should give this Sports Search one 24-48 hrs. to appear?

 

Forced the upgrade to x0799 on my HR34 at around 2:30 AM PST when I noticed it in the stream. Added another reboot shortly after the update was complete for good measure.

 

No sign of the Sport Search icon yet, though got the introductory screen announcing it when I first visited the "Search & Browse" menu.

 

MY DIRECTV menu is still completely blank of all icons as well.

 

Nice quick look though.

I have not heard anyone mention that they think it will be available on the Hx2x receivers, I believe it is Genie only.

The Genies have a lot more memory available for programs, and faster processors (even the HR34's processor is faster than HR24, even though the experience is slower.) Earlier DVRs don't have the horsepower.

Folks, it's time to realize that Genie is the one and only platform for DIRECTV moving forward. It's where the advanced features are going to be. The HR2x series has peaked.

So are you saying D* is done making two tuner DVR's?

Thanks Scott and Stuart.

I doubt that production of HR24s will stop in the near future, nor will the distribution of existing two tuner sets stop until they run out. 

 

Of course, I am not speaking for Stuart or Scott.

Cool sounds like DirecTV official support of multiple Genie's will be coming soon!  ;)

I think we are closer than people realize to the end of the two tuner dvr.  I am guessing we have another 2 years and they will be end of life for the hr24's.

OK thanks, Guess HR24's will have to wait?

Or you can do all your sport searches on the Genie once it gets updated and record them, then watch them on 24 via WH.

Hi Everyone, need some help.  I have been using Directv's genie since Feb '13 and watch a lot of sports.  Recently saw the new sports icon in Search & Browse that you're discussing here and used it and enjoyed being able to record entire seasons of my fave teams as well as seeing which of my teams' games were upcoming, etc..  But original genie had a faulty drive and had to be replaced last week.  Have new genie but no Sports Search icon.  I called Directv and they seemed to have no idea what I was talking about and said I'd probably just have to watch a ton more sports so that my new genie would "learn" my viewing habits and then give me that icon again. Drag if true.

 

Any advice from you guys since you obviously know the icon?

 

Thanks!

Your new Genie probably hasn't received the latest firmware update, give it some time and the icon will appear.

It may be the software version on your "new" Genie doesn't have Sports Search, or that it hasn't yet downloaded. It's different from the "you might like" kind of thing; you don't have to teach anything to the former, except you may want to designate your teams.

Thanks Scott and Laxguy!  So I guess that means it's just a matter of time before my genie downloads the new firmware.  Would occasionally rebooting it mean I might get the update sooner or would that not have any effect?

That's actually a good idea. Just like the H2x can't browse the VOD channels on 1000+, even if they see a networked DVR on the coax it could harness the power to. It's like the H2x series has peaked long ago, now the HR2x has peaked, and the genie is the new king.

This looks like a great feature for Sports fans.

I still rely on manual searches for my local teams schedule, because when I set a season series record on a team, it tries to record on some of the sport package channels ie league pass, but for the most part it's scheduled on local channels or cable channels.

Doesn't matter if it records the remap of the sports channel on a league pass channel number though. You'll still get the game. And you'll get your home team channel as well unless you have league pass and dual feeds are available then it's a toss up. But you'd still get the game.

Can't say I'm impressed with sports search. Manchester United is one of my teams, says no upcoming events. Doing my own search I found 3 upcoming games (Jan 1, 4, 7)? What gives?? Seems like the old search with just a cooler looking menu screen...
