4.01+ change I don't like. Returns to currently recording show.
Posted 17 April 2007 - 08:12 PM
Prior to 4.01, say you were watching channel 150 and then started a recorded DVR event. When you were done, it would return to channel 150 as long as a tuner was available.
With 4.01+, if any tuner is recording, it will return to the top most, currently recording event's channel.
IE, I record OTA every prime time night and catch up on sat programming during this time. When I finish the recorded program, I am switched (automatically) to the currently recording OTA channel rather than one of the free sat channels. With skipping commercials, it usually winds up putting me right at the crucial third-act reveal that could (has) ruin(ed) some shows.
And of course, your initial reaction is to change the channel (up/down), which only brings up the "would you like to cancel the recording" (since the only thing around an OTA channel is other OTA channels).
I have no idea why it was changed, and can't think of a reason anyone would want it this way.

As you said, it only happens when a tuner is recording... when it is not recording, then the receiver behaves the way it used to.
Not sure if they intended this as a feature or if it was a bug, but I reported it to them as a bug since it was unexpected behavior.
