    The more I looked at it, the more I agree so I just 86'd the sentence. Looking back, it was there before the bigger field trial started and everything was hush-hush.

    Did a couple of minor format changes and called it v11. I'm assuming after it's proofed the filename will change, not a big deal but just wanted to make sure we dropped the "v" before going to the masses.

    I'm running out of version numbers. :lol:

    I think with it out there and screen scrapes from other sources it's no longer needed. This is going to be pretty much the combining of what's out in the CE forum now.

    Looked at the Official Mediashare Guide lately for comparison?

    Anybody got a Cyberlink Users Guide for their other media products that might have some hints as to some functionality or tricks we don't know about in the DVR playback software? I rummaged around on their website a bit but didn't come across anything, but then again I didn't go for a free trial download either.

    I am just wondering why this is getting removed?

    Unable to manage shows in playlist (keep / delete / etc)

    Is this feature maybe getting added in the future? I have no problem with it being removed. I am just wondering why because that is a common feature that people use alot. :)

    Sorry. :blush:

    Since UPEngineer and Drew2k added some input to the without knowing it, is there a way to let them know prior to the release that their help was appreciated and added to this first look besides them seeing their names when it's released?

    Maybe a kudos PM or something is what I'm thinking. I just don't want to be the one to send it to them and let the cat out of the bag.

    :blush: Oh, that doc. I downloaded it a while ago and forgot about it. :blush:

    I thumbed through it again and didn't see any hot key references.

    Exactly. That is why I was asking if anyone had any other Cyberlink media program User Guides that might give a hint as to other functionality or tricks that we hadn't found out about yet. You know, figuring that their products would be similar.

    I'm sending this version to DIRECTV and Chris Blount for review. Good job!

    One last suggestion before final press, lets include the new DBStalk logo in the first page header.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    The DIRECTV PM gave his approval for the great job!

    The current plan is to hold the release until PC Playback is nearer to customer ready.

    (Maybe some of the wishlist will be in there by then.) :)

    Again, good job!
    Tom
