The first look reflects that now too.
Sorry, I'm still going to call it the HR34.
I still like the Junk Genie:
I'm naming mine Jeanie.
Excellent First Look as always, guys.
Nice first look;
For expanded coverage of "Genie Recommends" along with new Genie features "VOD and Linear Channel Linking" (Those strange "gray" triangles), and "Far in Advance Smart Search."
From an official DIRECTV tech. addendum;
That's why I've named him Hal, he always tells me I can't do things. :lol:
Very good first look.
Another great first look, thank you guys.
Not that I will be using this since I don't have an HR 34, but I always check the "You might Like" feature to see if there is anything similar that I might like and it will bring up shows that have NOTHING to do with the show it's referring to! I like to watch some of the paranormal reality shows and when I checked "you might like" , it didn't bring up two of the shows that were on the guide airing soon that I knew should have been totally related, yet it brought up two shows from MTV and a non paranormal show on the travel channel...
I just got this today so I haven't utilized it at all (I watch so much tv as it is, I'll probably try to avoid it anyways...) but I noticed something odd. When I went to sleep last night my DVR was at 38% available, and now it's at 31%, and there aren't any new shows in my list of recordings.
Color me confused.
This really isn't something i'm interested in. What i'd like to see in the show info for every show is the episode number and original air date. That would be helpful.
I didn't note the size of my available space prior to receiving the update but others have noticed the same basic decrease that you have. Seems to me like DirecTV took some of our space and re-allocated it to their space. It's either that or the calculation for disk space changed. That would be a huge coincidence though.
Original Air Date is there, it's called "First Aired".
It's there for some things. But not every thing.
If it's not there then there's no data for it.
Can you provide an example?
Yesterday my DVR recorded an episode of Bizarre Foods at 3pm. It's set to record only new episodes and this one was not new. And it also did not have an air date. It's not the only time. I've seen it occur on other popular shows.
I just did a search for Bizarre Foods and checked the first 20 episodes. They all have "First Aired" data.
Did you get the update last night? If so one thing to keep in mind is that you won't have complete data for 24 to 48 hours because updates can, and do, wipe out your guide data. In that situation you may get old episodes recorded.
Another thing to remember is if the provider, in this case Travel Channel, doesn't provide that information DirecTV can't pass it on to your unit.
Yes, got the update. But this issue occurred before it and has been happening off and on ever since I signed up with direct tv. I still want episode numbers.
If it's not data provided to DirecTV they can't provide it to you.
