Your last sentence contains a misspelling and needs a correction.
That's long been the work around(see HR20 tips & tricks)...and suggested a gajillion times.
The point is not to find work arounds but to discuss the lack of DLB(or complain/whine/b@%#$, depending on who to ask).
A little harsh maybe...
Discussion is what forums are all about.
I actually like differing points of view and discussion. I like to back-n-fourth opposite views with people.
I hope someone doesn't take anything the wrong way.....
this wont work for all of us; for example, i will record the steelers game and watch it as i pleased; the other buffer i use to skip between other games of interest to me; if i have to record both then i lost this functionality;
i have lurked on this site for a couple of years and only have a few posts but from my perspective this has turned into a pi$$ing contest and it seems there are several people who just post to say that dlb is not that big of a deal.
they should just leave because there are many of us that want the dlb and that is the point of this forum. why would you not want this feature as it just enhances the ability to view shows?
i guess what i am saying is that if you believe dlb are not important then go and find something else to do with your time.
I agree with this post, particularly the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs. I took a survey at sizethis.com about what features I, specifically, would want to see in the HR20. One of the comments made there was don't vote against something just because you wouldn't use it. It might be of value to someone else.
So for all of you who claim you don't miss DLB, or wouldn't use it - remember, there are many of us who do want and miss the feature. Why would you want to ruin our fun?
what a silly question!
because the world revolves around THEM, of course
Oy! Rude and patronizing? Your post implied that you objected to the content of others' posts. Where would you suggest the demand for DLB will emanate if it isn't from a site that clearly DirecTV is aware of and reads?
DBSTalk.com has a huge slice of their customer database among its membership and readership. Don't discount the value of the opinions of enthusiasts. These are probably DirecTV's best customers, and are furthermore highly likely to influence purchasing choices of friends and colleagues.
With all due respect, how do you know what is representative of the entire DirecTV customer base? Where would you suggest that DirecTV go to take the pulse of its customer base? And how do you know what will or will not influence DirecTV's implementation of DLB?
(Rhetorical questions not requiring an answer. )
By the way, "If there is enough demand across the board for something." is not a sentence as it contains no verb and no predicate. What you have written is a clause and not a sentence. Neither is, "Not just from an enthusiast forum site."
With regard to my "grammar," why would you expect the same standard of slavish adherence to the rules of punctuation that one might observe in writing a doctoral thesis when I was merely responding to a post on a satellite TV forum?
I knew precisely what I was writing when I purposely ended an implied interrogative sentence with a question mark.
(You do know what an implied interrogative is, don't you? )
People who write nearly incomprehensible prose should be careful in pointing out grammatical or syntactical errors of others.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
I do think DLB is important. I suggest you read the whole thread before you tell someone to "find something else to do with your time"
I was trying to say that I am tired of hearing about the same work around over and over again. It doesn't work for me either.
My comment about complaining was sarcasim...notice the smilie....
If you notice the Single in my signature that is another issue and doesn't have anything to do with wanting DLB. Don't take that to mean I don't want DLB.
If you don't know what the SLB issue is read this...http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=84453
I posted elsewhere on DBStalk about my intent to add an HR20 DVR to my DirecTivos... I'm glad I found this thread, as I won't do it until dual buffers are working.
Oh, that Bolt James guy is on my ignore list from a totally different forum. :lol:
I hate to say it but I don't think the HR20 will get DLB. My hope is that it will be in the next HD/DVR. You might be waiting for a while.
I knew it didn't have DLB but upgraded anyway because of other benefits/considerations.
I don't regret it in the least. Of course I got mine in Feb, long after it was introduced, and can honestly say I haven't had a problem.
Also, I kinda assumed it would be comming...and I'll keep hoping :bang
If it's not in this HD DVR, it won't be in the next. It's not a hardware issue; rather DirecTV chooses not to implement it. They can if they want; they just choose not to.
Since this is the 2nd DirecTV DVR that hasn't had DLBs
I know you know why, Earl, but I still cannot believe that of all the DVRs out there--TIVOs, DISH's, Comcast's, et. al.--DirecTV's stand virtually alone in the ranks of no DLB.
Earl, to your knowledge, is the same true of Single line buffers, allowing the live buffer to hold the pause point while viewing a recording?
I have to say this is plain absurd. My wife will not even consider using the stupid box without DLB. It is the single most important feature TIVO created. I now have to have 4 lines to my system so I can have my HD DVR and she can have her old SD DVR. I just get more benefit from the HD experience in the shows I watch, I am not as commercial intolerant.
But having said that , I really understand where she is coming from. They ened to wake up and understand thier users rather than the geeks they use to Beta this. Sorry if offend.
I mean look at this poll. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!
Just turn the feature on or at least give someone a plausible answer why you won't!
I started a thread about having the single live buffer retain the pause point, in my belief that we can't have DLB until we have SLB working. (That's not to say that if SLB works we'll get DLB - but let's get things working in the right order ....)
We will never ever see the answer . I mean come on it has been over a year now and just because is a stupid answer !! Obviously they fudged up and don't want anyone to know . Also since this is the 2nd box from D* without it , what was the reason the other one doesn't have it . Are they both because of the same problem ?
I fully understand D* chooses not to implement it. Further, I never said it was a hardware issue. If you've read anything else I've posted you'd know I've always maintained it is possible in the HR20. Probability...well that's another issue.
I believe that D* isn't going to do it on the HR20. It has all but been said so in other posts (not by me).
If it's going to happen at all, I think that the best possibility will be in the next box.
