    Yes there is. I'll post a pic in the morning. I'll say after 24 hours the box is working much better.

    It organizes them by season and episode numbers with the oldest at the bottom of the list and the most recent at the top similar to D*'s Genie. I tested that out by having it record all episodes of Chicago Med and Futurama.

    Just curious, has anyone ordered the service and device online or did you get the it from a retail store? I ordered the service on Monday but haven’t received a shipping confirmation yet for the device.

    My account was activated fine with the package selected and I’ve been using it via the app on my Apple TV. So far, it’s been working fairly well.

    I ordered it online. Good reward cards for doing so. It should've shipped by now so contact them today.

    Here's the pic showing an option to record new episodes only but it's not working properly. This would be great when it's fixed.

    Yeah, I contacted them and they have no clue. They couldn’t find any indication of whether it has shipped or not.

    They already charged me for the first month of service, so looks like the 14 day “grace period” clock has already started. I’ll give it another few days and then if no device ships, then I’ll tell them to cancel the account and I’ll start over by signing up at a retail store. I probably should have just done that originally.

    I saw something like that in a post the other day and wondered how they could do that. I would think if you to to a store and sign up you'd get the box right away. Or could they screw that up too? ATT never seems to have it's **** together no matter what they try to do. You/we should get the box at the time we sign up.

    Could it be that many folks singed up, more than they anticipated? I find that hard to believe but maybe there are others with similar plans like mine to get out the 2nd year, unless ATT renegotiates and I also love the service.

    Sure. Think these nitwits actually have a plan? Certainly sounds like, once again, ATT throwing something against the wall, seeing if it sticks. Spit-balling in real life.

    I stopped into my local store yesterday and they said they have not sold one yet, lol.

    I mentioned to them that I haven’t received my shipment confirmation yet and they said if I wanted I could call to cancel that account, and they could sign me up in store and they have the devices there. But yeah, sounds like I would be the guinea pig for them, since I would be their first.

    I know I’m taking a gamble with this service, I just want to be able to get out before the ETF kicks in if it all goes haywire and it takes them forever to get me a device.

    You can change the way the programs are recorded when you do the double click on the Record button in the menu. You can opt for All or First run.

    One thing I don't like is there seems to be no way to view a list of your current series recordings. If you want to cancel a series recording, then you have to search for the show specifically and then select Cancel Series. But you would have to specifically search for that show. It would be nice to see a list of current series recordings that are setup so you can then manage them accordingly.

    But to be fair it's still recording all episodes. I don't see where in the guide it would show info on if the episodes are showing new status or not. I can't tell. Bottom line is it doesn't work but hopefully it will soon.

    Also the ability to extend time on recordings for live events.

    Thanks for the eBay link, I may actually order one considering ATT can’t seem to figure out how to ship one to me.

    That would be annoying but every time a new app or service comes online there are glitches like this. Gotta give them time to fix all the little things.

    You can't pad a recording? That would really be a problem.
