From what I've heard, you're going to want it.
The inability to mange other DVR's recordings from the one you are at.
Considering my whole point was that they show up, the fact that they won't play doesn't even amount to a 1/3 of the way there.
As for Parental Controls, that's a whole other subject. Unlike MRV which I think is great, but could be better, I'm not fond of DirecTV's Parental Controls. Thankfully, it's not an issue for me at this time since I'm not a parent.
I hope this HDGUI has a very robust “Channels I get” feature.
It be nice if the new gui could sync up your favorite channels on the iPad.
Easier to just tap on the iPad then use arrow keys on the remote sometimes.
He ain't the only one with 12 HRs.
My primary TV that is part of my home theater setup has 3 HRs connected to it, and one of those HRs has a 1TB eSata drive attached.
Did ya'll see that episode of Hoarders where that lady had multiple TV's and VCR's hooked up to each one and was doing nothing but recording shows without watching them? She had thousands of tapes........
They should help her out by getting her DVRs and a disk farm. Save space.
Saving space does not seem to be one of her priorities. It is about the ONLY thing she doesn't save ...
Before I got into DVRs, I had twelve VCRs running constantly and a few hundred blank tapes. Glad that nightmare is over.
We have two DVR's. One is running 75% free space; the other is 95%. Those numbers will go up a little when we resubscribe to HBO for Boardwalk Empire later this month and as the college football season progresses.
Of course there's just two of us...
My son has two HRs, we have ten and we're still working on last year's shows. I keep my DVRs at about 50% of full capacity, which is 2TBs on most of them. I have not missed a show because of HR, HDD or any other kind of failure in years. And, for the most part, it's just the wife and me watching them. I back up everything at least four times. I do have one HR dedicated to movies.
You realize there's an actual, you know, WORLD beyond the television, right?
:lol: :lol: :lol:
Yes. Football. On the window to the world.
(Except those times I can get back to GB for a Packer game.)
I rarely watch TV during the day. Just when the wife comes home. Be that as it may, I'm not returning any working HRs so I might as well use them. As they start to break down, I'll get rid of them.
That Actually Works as Advertised!!!
My Channels I Get is Worthless as it doesn't work correctly!!!
Rich and I do the same thing as I have 7 DVRs in Total with 13,000 Gigabytes of Storage Capacity and I have 3 of my DVRs backing up the other 4 DVRs as I don't have to back up everything just things I want to make sure I have in the Future if I choose to watch them such as the Masters Golf Tournament or the U. S. Open Golf Tournament, etc.
Hopefully in the Future Directv may give us the Ability to have an Archival Process so we can Back Up our DVRs but until then we just use other DVRs to back up the other DVRs.
Alright, back to the topic at hand. Is there any new information/timetable on an updated HD GUI?
I hope the HDGUI comes on time. Ben over at EngadgetHD said in last weeks podcast that direcTV is never on time. From waiting for mpeg4, to new DVRs and now direcTivo and new HD channels.
I just hope they redeem themselves this time and show us what's up. Here's to anticipating!
Ben at EngadgetHD would be incorrect.
