    That's really an obfuscation for what's really fixed (something the title says not to talk about).

    Because the music app plays sound when the mute control is on as well as the Netflix app and most others

    I know. And I've tried to mute it with the mute switch (imagine that!), and it doesn't work.

    A mute switch should mute the device, regardless of the app.

    App rarely finds receivers. Pretty maddening. I was just watching something on the iPad app switched app to check my mail and now app says "No connected receivers found". iPad has Internet. Receivers have Internet. Yet they can't find find each other. Both receivers see each other with unified playlist.

    I understand that it's intentional. I don't why it's intentional.

    The rectangular switch counterclockwise around the corner from the volume control.

    That's not the mute switch. It darkens the screen. There are three ways to mute the box: One is the switch next to the volume control, but it has to be set in Settings to Mute. An other is the volume control itself. Gets to 0 real fast. A third way is the ear buds, the switch on the right phone wire.

    I've had this problem before, but it was because of the WiFi and it has impacted both this app and my nomad app. The iPad will sometimes switch to our neighbors WiFi. I've told the iPad on multiple occasions to "forget" their WiFi, but it seems whenever I get an iOS update, I have to "forget" the neighbors WiFi again. Something to check if there are other WiFi networks in your area.

    I noticed something last night that would be nice to get changed on the iPad app. When I went to set up a recording of a hockey game, the iPad app didn't ask me if I wanted to add 30 minutes to the recording because it was a live game (like the DVR does).

    Mine does this all the time I just click back to the home and then open the app again and it finds them but it's super annoying.

    DECA or ethernet? Are the receivers set to a static IP?

    I shouldn't be posting at 1 in the morning.
    Yes, the mute switch is where you described.
    Nevertheless, I don't think the apps should override the mute.

    It should be...

    Try setting a recording for tonight's NFL game on NFL Network... it should prompt you to extend the recording.

    This prompt is driven by a data flag provided by the content provider, so it is possible that for the recording you were trying... wasn't set correctly.

    Heh. I'd give it a 99.57% probability.....:hurah:

    But my iPad asks for all shows- it brings up a dialog that allows for setting Start and End times, whether it's FB, hockey or news, etc.

    It shouldn't be.

    The flag being checked is one denoting that the program is Live...
    So for a primetime scripted show, it shouldn't be showing the alert dialog.

    AHA! Just checked again, and if I choose tonight's NFL game from the Guide, I get the additional dialog. If I choose it from the Sports listing page, I do not.

    [Previously, I was referring to the dialog, not the additional alert for live broadcasts.]

    Wouldn't disagree, yet I am not sure how that's supposed to work- I have that button set to not rotate, but just tried it for mute. It brings up the crossed out bell, so maybe it stops phone calls on the iPad. :D, or mutes alerts.... IAE, there are a number of other ways to mute. I generally just pause....
