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?

Agreed. This is a lousy implementation. All the 3-sec hold trickplays should be re-worked.

Well not everyone does, or they'd be solid green on the list results, instead of green/beige mixed! :lol:

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...

That might be resolved by the addition of a CATEGORY "high-def" search on the first screen. Depending on how D* implements it, should get you what you want. It's already on the list as Add "CATEGORY" as a new top-level search type on the SEARCH Menu.

You may also want to check out some of our thoughts on the future of SEARCH/AUTORECORD in this thread.

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.

Also already on the list as SKIP-TO-TICK should trigger by pressing ADVANCE or REPLAY during FF or REW, instead of the current "PRESS & HOLD" method.

If you haven't already, please be sure to take the survey here.

As opposed to re-doing the OTA setup scan? Curious, is that something you need to do often? /s

This one's on the list already. I think it covers what you're looking for:

OPTION to select "time-of-day" and/or "day-of-week" window for when a SERIES LINK episode may be recorded.

I agree with you, BTW. I'm always surprised when you set up a SERIES LINK for shows like this and key off the 11PM showing, e.g., that the HR20 doesn't take that as a "cue" that you prefer the later showings, for recording subsequent episodes.

Gotcha. I can see where that might be useful. Actually, given the recent "RED BUTTON" delete metaphor D* has just introduced in the latest CE, for removing shows fromthe PLAY and TODO lists, how would everyone feel about changing the current request?

OPTION to do an "erase all" of CID results


to:

Ability to RED BUTTON delete CID results

You'd delete the entries you didn't want with a single click. Just a thought. Love to hear everyone's thoughts on this. /s

Now this might be a use for press-and-hold, as much as I tend to despise it. Press RED once to delete, press-and-hold to delete all. Whadya think?

Does the Red Button Delete take care of the old Wish List Item asking for a quick way to delete but still have confirmation?

Should we put that back on the list so that they can get credit for it when the NR comes out? I think that this covers the old wording:

Ask for confirmation for a quick delete in Playlist

I would also say to change the wording on this one:

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

to this:

Ability to see past expired program information in the Guide.

I do not want them to get hung up on the specific hours and decide the request cannot be done. Also we need to be specific where we want to be able to see this.

The wording change is probably a wise choice. The bubble text can give more specific information on location.
