    It just showed up for me. There was a pop up while watching TV so I clicked OK Download and after a minute, it went to the update screen. I've never encountered that before. As much of a night owl as I am this is the first one ever been nagged to let it update. The whole process only took about 10 minutes and it went right back to the channel it was on.

    Most NR updates occur in the wee hours. If you happen to be up and watching TV it will give you the option of updating or not.

    Select a Show in the guide to record and it will list S2|E10 as an example

    Found it. But I find it rather clunky and unintuitive.

    Got it this morning at 3:47 am! I like how it shows up in the info. Never noticed how really out of order TBS airs Friends. Though sometimes, I think their syndication computer (if that's a thing) just gets broken. Because they will air them out of order for a few weeks, then all of a sudden go back to normal.

    Can't wait to check out the playlist! Except now all of my shows are reruns for the next month or so

    Yea, this is totally messing up the way we watch things. When I sort by oldest, I want to see the folder with the oldest program on top. Instead inside the folders they are sorted newest first so the oldest newest is on top.

    This needs to get fixed.

    Oldest newest?

    In any event, as time goes forward, I think most of this will straighten itself out.

    I have the same issue. Please call Directv and report the problem. When I called today they did not have it on the known problem list so no one else had reported it. To make this a priority we need a lot of complaints about it. The sort order within the folders is not affected by the settings chosen for the list itself. If you have a folder with many episodes, change the sort order for the list and then open the folder. You will see that the folder maintains the same sorting regardless of what you choose.

    EDIT: Don't like it but I have found a way to do this - doesn't tell you it is on demand vs. a live showing but.

    Below is still an issue to me.


    If this is supposed to be smart search it isn't for me. Got the update last night (or notice this am) I'm going back and watching old Deadwood episodes. Before I could just use the smart search and find Deadwood - it would display all the episodes on demand and I could select what I wanted to record.

    Now the is no on demand displayed in the smart search - it only shows entire seasons - which if selected - first I don't want the entire season and second it doesn't pull off demand only if and when HBO decides to show the series again.

    I can go in to the on demand search and find what I want.

    Used to be able to use one search tool and now I have to use 2. NOT a step forward..
    Even for current shows I may not want to do entire series -

    Bad idea to me DirecTv

    The oldest/newest sort is definitely broken following the 0x987 update. Single recordings still appear in the correct order (oldest first), but any recordings that are in folders are listed newest first. The folder's position in the list is determined by the first (newest) recording in the folder. This is a big deal if you have a folder with a long list of recordings. If you have 100 episodes of a series recorded, it means you have to scroll through the entire list to get to the oldest episode.

    My HR44-200 was updated to 0x0987 early this morning. Very smooth update. Allow Web Videos, Pandora, Sports, and YouTube reloaded unlike the previous update where I had to perform a double reset to get them to reload. Am looking forward to using the new features.

    If you are truly scrolling, try using the channel down to jump a full screen's worth of entries at a time.

    Also, for faster movements, go into Settings, Display and turn the "Scrolling Features" to OFF.

    Got the new software 2 days ago, HR34/700, my issue is the DVR now seems to only be able to record 2 shows while you watch another channel. For example last night I wanted to record 3 shows at 6 PM, got message that it would need to change channels to one of the ones I wanted to record in order to record all 3. This is definitely not an upgrade.

    Hate to be irreverent (or irrelevant), but why would one have 100 of anything recorded?

    Is it possible that there were other recordings to be made in the queue that would interfere?

    IAE, unlikely that an update would cause that. Can you cause it to repeat?
