EDIT: Never mind - it looks like all it refers to is the wing with info they have for HD broadcasts. D* has already had it for a while.
You may be on to something here
Why is it that I now have 3 channels listed for some. For example I have the normal USA HD & Standard def USA then I also have a 3rd channel that says +USA. I have heard nothing about this... so what is it?
I had seen these the other day and thought it was a glitch. Now I added them and see they are +USA, +Lifetime, +MTV, etc.
Any news as to what these are?
yeah sorry i searched for + channels and came up with nothing but this thread also reveals nothing so whats up??????
DirecTV doesn't want it to be known yet.
I had the 5 +HD additional channels 242 +USAHD, 244 +SyfyHD, 252 +LIFEHD. 331 +MTVHD and 335 +VH1HD. It was also part of my guide information disappearing every four days. This is listed in the DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion under Guide resets every 4 days. I was using an external hard drive and the solution was to reformat the hard drive and as I type the problems have disappeared. The help was most welcome. Remember YMMV or this may or may not help with your problem. To answer a question posed about calling DTV and reporting it I most certainly did. I am sure that some one other than myself called in this problem also.
Did you see Scott's comment awhile back?
Thanks Lame Lefty. I added the "+" Plus Channels to the thread title, maybe that will help folks find the answers they seek.
There is no reason to call a CSR for help, the likely will not know what the problem is and it will just cause confusion.
Just enter a keyword search IAMANEDGECUTTER NOT and they will go away.
Maybe they are mapping the ethernet VOD channels next to the regular channels
Even though I don't recall specifically entering the "EDGECUTTER search," I guess this otherwise explains why the "IAMANEDGECUTTER NOT" keyword search did not work for me in removing those "+" duplicates on one of my HD-DVRs since I subscribe to the CE forum. Not to actually participate in any firmware beta testing as I really don't have an available HD STB receiver or DVR here to serve as a lab rat, but to be able to read the posts there.
Any how, those strange "+" channel duplicates disappeared on their own a few days ago.
Yes I did see Scott Kocourek's info posted above mine. I tried it and unfortunately it did not work for me. I eventually went the whole nine yards and formatted my hard drives to fix the problem for me. I hope that for most people used Scott's tip and for them it is successful.
Is this a problem? Or just a curiosity?
It could take a few days after entering the search for them to disappear however you must make sure you enter it as a KEYWORD SEARCH by pressing the RED button on the remote, not a name search when you enter the keyword for them to go away. Formatting was a bit of overkill.
I'd have to agree. Most things "CE" are temporary. I could understand formatting if the issue drastically impaired usage, but to get rid of the extra channels...not so much.
I have the +channels in the guide of the one dvr of mine that's never had a CE on it. Nor have I performed a Edgecutter search on it.
Did you try the IAMANEDGECUTTER NOT search, just in case?
There's no just in case. I only put ce's on the living room dvr. The +channels in the guide aren't a big deal since I use a custom guide setup... I had to go into "all channels" to see the +. I'm just making the observation that this doesn't seem to be limited to ce participating dvr's.
