    It is a DVR80. Not sure if it is a series 2. I would like to upgrade it to another HR-20 anyway.

    Received the update and everything is working fine on my HR10 (way smoother than my recent HR21 updates).


    Service label fix probably has to do with the brand logos by the channel numbers in the playlist etc. Occassionally they would diappear for some people (I never saw that issue_

    Question: Can anyone with a SD DirecTivo (w/ 6.4a) verify that they can use the online DVR scheduler? I ask because only my HR10-250 is showing up in the online scheduler and not my SD units.

    I checked and still says my equipment does not have that ability :nono2:

    They will give me a free update to D* DVR which has this ability...

    Is it worth it??

    I cannot use the scheduler on a R-10 model. I verified the software and the other features, i.e. the recently deleted folder, but the receiver doesn't show up on my list for online scheduling. Do they need a network connection for this feature to work. If so, I guess I am out of luck because from what I can see, the R-10 doesn't have one.:confused:

    Not at all. Stick with the TIVO. I returned my R15 after a few months. Anyway, the scheduling is done over the satellite, so my guess is Directv just has to update its systems for the R10.

    You don't need a network connection to use the scheduler. It works fine for HR2x and HR10-250 units that aren't networked. It seems that even though they are updating the software for the SD DirecTivos to be capable of remote scheduling, that they haven't actually given any of them the permission from DirecTV's end yet.

    i'm still confused as to if suggestions or deleted items will be deleted first for space. I currently use suggestions to monitor space

    I forced a call last night, but it did not update the software. I have a Series 2 RCA DVR80.

    The best explanation I saw was "nothing has changed."

    That is, TiVo has simply giving you access to see deleted programs that have not yet been reclaimed for space when new programs (scheduled or suggestions) are recorded. The deleted programs always go first.

    I think the delay in implementing DVR scheduler for Tivo units is just so people will be lured into the "upgrade for free" area.

    Been away for a few days and forced calls on all three of my legacy TiVo receivers, but only the two SD receivers were upgraded to 6.4 - the HD HR10-250 has not been upgraded. On the SD receiver I had months of programs listed in the "Deleted Recordings" folder ...

    I didn't see a reply to this, so if I missed it....

    The 30 second skip option must always be re-entered after a reboot.

    The channel number entry problem you describe has, for me, always been fixed by a reboot. It's not software specific.

    You must have completely skipped 6.3? Audio DRC has been there since 6.3 first came on the scene.

    This was expected. Now, if the option was no longer available, I would be disappointed.
    My box has been rebooted several times. Go figure.
    That's the consensus. It probably appeared in a previous upgrade, but nobody noticed before.

    I did get the update, on my R10, but still no joy on the scheduler. Any word on when DirecTV will ad them to customer accounts?

    I went to the remote scheduler on the web site this morning to schedule something on my HR20 - 700 and noticed the my HR10-250 was now in the list. That brought me here.

    My HR10-250 called home in the early hours of this morning, but is still running 6.3f. I had it call in again and now have the 6.4a version after a restart.

    I attempted one scheduled recording (while still on 6.3f) and noticed that the options to record once or series are greyed out. The confirmation message came back that I had scheduled the series.

    The HR10-250 will show up on the scheduling site but it won't actually schedule a recording until 6.4 installs.
