Not really anything to be gained on the customer end by doing so. So, I don't see why it matters.
I was being a bit sarcastic and meant the suggestion too.
Would avoid customer frustration. So it does matter, to some.
Ever press Active in error and then find you can't do anything with the box for 30 secs, sometimes longer.
There's pictures throughout dbstalk of folks that have opened up remotes to remove the button.
No. The DirecTV remote goes in a box and never again sees the light of day. I have come across Active a few times by accident and a press of the previous channel button takes me back immediately...not after 30 seconds in my own experience.
I have hit Active and it is a I am stuck here for a bit.
same here, usually at least 30 seconds.
I forget that Active even exists. I did not program my remote for it. The button just tunes to a channel anyway, if I recall right.
However, Active does give the scoreboard and other popup capabilities, so pure removal of Active would actually cut down on capabilities.
leave the active channel alone!
But if you hit that darn button, the HR* is frozen in time for about a minute. Even on my HR24
Don't hit it.
For benchmark purposes anyone with different DVR's does it take longer on older ones? I'd be curious how many seconds it takes to load on various platforms.
HR21 through HR44.
Or maybe if the difference is tiny it could be they are just waiting for the loop of data to cycle through on that transponder to download the proper screen configuration, text and information. A carousel as you will.
Nope. You just have to be VERY CAREFUL not to push that button!!!
I don't see an ACTIVE button on the future remote.
I've only used Game Lounge once or twice during the free previews.
Not surprised at all that's its being discontinued.
thats something i like about my new harmony remote i got in today the active button is hidden away deep in the menu screen
My dad loves the active channel to watch the weather even if it's a long delay, The darn looping video is annoying though, also to watch the local lottery numbers, Even though the receiver is internet connected to use TV Apps for weather he's so used to the active button.
when my kids were younger we loved the game lounge. now they are adults so it won't be missed.
