I have a suggestion for the Favorites list.
Enable a Toggle option to restrict recordings to channels in the Active Favorites list. For both DirecTV DVRs.
I know this has been suggested before I am just repeating to keep it in the air.

This is something that many have requested. The "Channels I Receive" requests are usually the biggest area in which which this is being requested and is related to this topic.

[moderation] Thread moved to HR20 Q&A[/moderation]

While no one is suggesting they are, I would to be clear that, IMHO, these are not mutually exclusive. CIR must be fixed as it is the foundation for an advanced DVR experience (autorecord, search, etc.)

At the same time a Favorites filter is such a basic filter that it too really needs to be in any DVR these days.

(and to truly excel, some boolean logic on multiple filters is the next step.)

Cheers,
Tom

Channel I Receive will only address some of the problems. They need to do the full solution. Here is a simple way we worked out:

A Simple Channels I Receive Solution

It is the solution that Dish, and every other major DVR receiver competitor uses. My Sony SAT-T60 had the perfect solution in 2001.

And, I would love to be able to put characters into the search box... many shows start with or include a character, not just a letter in their names, and right now you can't easily search on those... as an example -- 'Til Death, with Brad Garrett.

I have a suggestion related to the Favorites list: Make the selection of a Favorites list in the menu IMMEDIATELY close the menu and activate that new favorites list.

It's silly that right now if you go to the menu and change to a different Fav list, you have to then press menu or exit to close the menu and see the results of changing to a different Fav list.

Instead, when you select a different Fav in the menu, just close the menu automatically, following the same behavior in Playlist when the user chooses a different "List By ... " method.

how about being able to enter into the search box using the remote like a cell phone keypad... dish did this and the first time I tried searching w/ DirecTV i nearly shot myself.

That's an excellent idea and it has been suggested, and is being discussed here:
