I'm thinking that the following item:

SKIP-TO-TICK should be triggered by pressing ADVANCE or REPLAY during FF or REW

should be changed slightly to

SKIP-TO-TICK should be triggered by pressing ADVANCE or REPLAY during FF or REW instead of current Push & Hold method

Good idea, though I changed it instead to "Press & Hold" to keep it consistent with the manual. Also added an INFO balloon and "Press & Hold" wording to:

Use RED & GREEN buttons (or LEFT & RIGHT arrows) to jump to the START or END of a recording or the live buffer, instead of the current "PRESS & HOLD" method.

Thx. /s

Noticed there are about 60 prior survey respondents who have not yet voted on the two new items added yesterday. Just a reminder that you don't have to retake the whole survey if you want to weigh-in on just those features. You'll see the VALUE boxes for just these two items highlighted in "blue".

Ability to review 24-48 hours of expired program information.

OPTION to turn on the SCREENSAVER when listening to music over the network.

Hey Steve, I have one for you to add to the wishlist even though it will not happen. MLB put a salary cap on baseball so your Yankees can stop trying to buy championships. :D

As Mr. Angelos will tell you (remember Albert Belle?), it's not how much money you spend, but how you spend it! :lol: /s


I just wish he would spend a little money. You can't spend 70 million and play with teams like Yankees 200+ million and Red Sox 150+ million.

Can anyone confirm that "Never auto-delete a program marked as "keep", even if the "keep at most" number is exceeded." is still an issue that needs to remain on the Wish List? TIA. /s

And thanks for your vote! We're up to 90 registered survey respondents in the first week... about 13 new voters each day.

Who wants to be #100? :) /s

Seems this item is no longer an issue. I'll remove it from the list for now. /steve

Ability to set a series link for a specific day and time for shows that air the same episode multiple times per day/week.

I'd like to do this so I can avoid using both tuners for recording and retain the ability to flip channels. It doesn't happen often, but there are times I see I have 2 recordings set and 1 is for a show that will repeat later that night or week.

When scrolling through a list (i.e., beginning at the first item) allow an up-arrow to take you to the LAST item in the list. This should be faster than down-arrowing multiple times to get to the bottom.

Ahhh...."wrap around lists"....good suggestion.

Adding onto that...on the remote setup, it's very tedious to scroll through page after page to fine my ZENITH or RCA brand TV, receiver, etc... We have letters on the number buttons, use them as you would text messaging on a phone...even if only to jump to the first letter. Example: to get to RCA, you'd press "7-7-7" (which would bring up all brands starting with "R").

2) A "jump to tick mark" feature might make it easier to jump earlier and later in a show. TiVo's have this, and it's very useful when needing to jump through a video. Example: when fast forwarding, the "Skip Advance" button (or whatever it's called) would jump to the next tick mark. When rewinding, the "instant rewind" button would jump back a tick mark.


We already have skip to tick mark. Press and hold FF or Rew for 3 seconds and it skips to the next/previous tick mark.

Hadn't seen that! Thanks! (as brott said, this CAN be implemented better, though...)

I don't know if this is a proper way to do this (and if not, Earl, slap my wrists and delete this thread), but it can't hurt...

I don't have many "feature requests" as the HR20 is QUICKLY maturing into a very stable and feature-rich DVR. But a couple of things come to mind...feel free to add your suggestions.

*PLEASE DO NOT POST "VOD" or "DLB"...WE ALL WANT THOSE;)*

1) When setting up a Series Link, it'd be nice to be able to tell it to ONLY record the HD version of show. Example: CSI Miami is on my CBS affiliate Monday nights in HD...but they run reruns during the weekend that are NOT in HD...

2) A "jump to tick mark" feature might make it easier to jump earlier and later in a show. TiVo's have this, and it's very useful when needing to jump through a video. Example: when fast forwarding, the "Skip Advance" button (or whatever it's called) would jump to the next tick mark. When rewinding, the "instant rewind" button would jump back a tick mark.

Anyone else have some suggestions?
