    Nice.

    And I think "coming soon" from this group actually means something.

    It has happened to all of my FIA selections that are scheduled on NBC. Once the show appears in the guide, the ABC and CBS default to the local affiliates on sat feed (No OTA). The NBC selections default to the National feed which I don't get.

    It is a great concept and I'm sure in the future this will improve.

    Nice job guys!

    This is cool stuff. I can't believe that my 5 year old HR21 is still getting new features!

    Great add for those of us who don't speak "Boolean".

    What would almost as nice, maybe even nicer, is if this "Far in Advance" came with an associated increase to the limit of 50 season passes. I currently 'push the limit' now with my 2 DVRs. Allowing me to set "future" passes will be useless unless given the ability to add more than 50.

    I'll check to see if any if my FIA selections are for NBC and if not will make one up as a test.

    Looks like the FIA issue I noticed is happening to others as well. Glad I pointed it out.

    Nice add. Although I had already built my series links over the course of a year, so when the shows come back on they'll get automatically picked up. But I like it - especially if I ever have hard drive issues, I won't have to wait for all my shows to actually show up in the guide before I record the series link.

    Actually, this problem happened to me as well when trying to set up Touch on Fox. I was wondering what the heck was happening (not to mention I hadn't even heard about the Far in Advance feature and was wondering what the hell the "Coming Soon" was. Thanks Ccarncross for the heads up.

    I am seeing it work for big named shows/programs but some of my wife shows on TLC or stuff on PBS are not showing up.

    Perfect for us on the road full time. We don't get the locals but we do get the 39X feeds.

    Last week, I did searches for AMC Freakshow & Immortalized and neither was found. Did another search last night and both were found.

    Without knowing the source for FiA data, this could be an hit or miss feature on finding a future program.
