    D* must have pulled them.

    Mine only showed up today. I know that I have everything needed (dish/switch/box/tv) Duh, what does it mean when both of my HR20's do not show the video?

    Because you didn't get the software update yet. It is staggered and the east coast gets it last. It's 0x18a

    when will it expire? Mine says 8/22 but I got it last night and today is the 22nd...odd.

    Also I was able to watch it on one HR20 but the other says "searshing for satellite content".

    I wish they just let you delete it

    So when you do your hdcheck has anyone then ordered a receiver through their link? It takes you to the $299 fee upgrade (HD DVR). Won't they eventually replace the receivers for free? Are they going to force all their HD TIVO customers to threaten to leave Directv to get the required receiver by going through customer retention?

    It seems like an inefficient procedure that will probably result in slow upgrades.

    Ya, excellent method. Pure genius. Top notch, quality work indeed.
    They pushed something onto my playlist that
    I don't want,
    didn't ask for,
    can't delete,
    AND DOESN'T WORK. It's just a blank screen. It won't play.
    Yup, I'm extremely impressed.

    Cedar Park,...
    The recording that was in My Playlist with the 08/22 expiration disappeared after midnight. It will be interesting to see if another copy shows up on Thursday.

    I normally give D* a lot of lee-way, but the fact that they autorecord a program that just says "Searching for authorized content" makes me start to wonder why I waste my time believing in them.

    When you can't demonstrate your technology because of your own most annoying bug, you're just setting it up for failure.

    I have a feeling that they needed to get rid of the program before the 9/22 experation date that it originally had. So they sent out a new program, with nothing in it (or something to that effect) with the same exact name but with the 8/23 experation date. The big question is why did they pull this from all the channels they had it on and take this action to get rid of the recording?

    I never saw the video and I guess it is because I have an HR20-100. I also now get a message on channel 499 that says that I don't have a B-Band Converter connected. Yet, sometimes it says searching for signal. I called D* and they said that was normal and they show I have all the equipment I need to get the new HD channels. I asked how come it shows a message that I don't have a B-Band Converter connected and he just said that it was normal. Great help. So, my questions to the dbstalk.com community, is this really normal or should I try to get some more B-Band Converters just to be sure?

    Interestingly, I saw this in my list, tried to play it, but it wouldn't play. It also said it expired Aug 23...I guess they know that I'm ready...

    EDIT: maybe I should read further before I post. I see others could not play it either...

    I seen where they had a H21 receiver upgrade,It is black BUT it has no atsc screwin for the (ota) antenna, thats about all I know about it. I wouldn't want it just because of the antenna hookup, but I would like to have a black one, since all my other stuff is black. Jerry

    I dont know much about atsc screwin, but I would think it takes two ATSC screwin to make a baby atsc.....
