    Allright, more complaints from me.

    First of all, after downloading all my guide data, I still dont have a Comedy Central Logo.

    Secondly, I wanted to switch the banner back to two seconds and discovered I couldnt. I had had it set to 4 second previously when I had native on, but I recently locked my HR-21 into 1080i because switching between 1080i, 480i and 720p could sometimes lead to long delays and the 4 second banner often became a 2 second banner after changing display modes. Now that I'm on 1080i all the time I want a 2 second banner again.

    Third, the thing seems a lot slower lately. If I go into a menu or the recorded programs list it just sits at the background blue screen for several seconds while it thinks.

    I am not pleased with this release. And I still want yellow button functionality back.

    Sorry did not see you response until now. For the lists custom ch. lists that are already provided by D*, they have the remove all ch's feature. Than you just select the ch's you want. But I hear what your saying Laxguy. But this feature does not bother me. Thanks.

    Thanks David, but does not work, not really a big deal, but would be nice if it did jump back after TV Mail.

    True, ;jes. The Pic Format is a single button on the remote. So far I have NOT accidently changed the pic resolution in the new toolbox feature, when I was trying to go to CC/D* Subtitling options.
    In hindsight, I guess its not really a big deal because the D* User Interface only moves so fast. Which in some Menu areas is good and some bad '.'

    ANOTHER DEAR MEMBER: There is another fellow member I forgot to multiquote before replying, but he said that it would be cool if D* made the CC option the hilightED when you bring up the Banner. Thats a great! idea.

    What am I missing? I use to use the yellow button to get to bookmarks which I set in a recorded show. How do I do it with this new release (0x4a6)?

    DVR: HR22-100

    Heres how it should have been laid out from left to right. CC is too many button presses now.

    Info
    CC
    Last 4
    Favorites
    Audio/Video
    Parental
    TVmail

    I would put CC to the left of Info, and TVMail to the far right... Hmmm, I think this would be even better:

    TV Mail, Parental, CC, INFO, Last 4, Favorites, Audio/Video

    That way, it's easy to get to both CC and Last 4.

    I can change my banner time to 6 or 8 seconds, but it always defaults back to 4 seconds. Is there a way to change it to 6 or 8 seconds and if so how?

    Is there a way under 0x4A6 NR to delete bookmarks?

    Thanks.

    You see, I did not even know that. :D I use CC very rarely, but recently I was watching a Bollywood movie, and the Indian accented English was sometimes hard to understand, so I changed it to show CC.... but I just wasn't aware of the yellow button.

    I hear ya now, I pressed the yellow button and it came up with the info screen. I agree now, yellow should probably focus on the CC menu so it is right there. That said, since I didn't knew about it in the first place, I can't say I am going to miss it.

    ... no, just proves it's a feature I could care less about ... ;) never wished for it before and never used it since it showed up (in CEs)...

    You really don't know what closed-captioning is for? People who are deaf or hard of hearing, CC is essential. Also, programs where people speak with strong accents (British programs, for example).

    I'd remove Parental (or at least make it an option to remove it) as I would never use this feature. Also, I don't get what TVmail is for other than advertisements from Directv, so I'd get rid of that too.

    Since the Info button brings this up, I think they should go back to how the Yellow button was set up before, primarily for closed-captioning.

    This new update is just horrid. With all the info that pops up now it takes up over half the screen. What an UNenjoyable experience. Does Directv want me to watch TV or their screen ? Not to worry though, the next release will include "Popups" :mad:

    I'm indifferent on the banner but I do use the "Last 4" and did when it was on the yellow button. From previous discussions, I can see where many subscribers use the CC and benefit from it being easily accessible. I always wanted quicker access to the to do list but gave up on that in favor of access to CC, since that seems more of a benefit to many people.

    I'm really surprised the navigation on the new banner doesn't wrap around. That's pretty standard on a lot of horizontal menus I've seen. That would have certainly been a useful tweak to keep from having to go backwards when you want to get from the last option back to the first.

    I'm surprised that none of the DirecTV menu's wrap around. It could be a real time saver. Seems like a simple thing to do, but they just don't believe in it, for whatever reason.

    This one has been occurring for a while spanning multiple firmware revs. On my HR20-700, whenever I record from an OTA channel, I get random audio drop outs, that sometimes last for several seconds. When this occurs, I can hear the hard drive churning away. Rebooting the DVR doesn't seem to fix the problem. The audio drop outs do not occur when watching the OTA channel live.
    I do not have LIL HD in my DMA (Rochester, MN) and it is not on the list for this year, so I am stuck with OTA.

    This issue has been occurring over multiple firmware revisions. On OTA channel 3-1 (Rochester, MN DMA, KIMT, UHF channel 42) The following error randomly occurs, "Searching for signal on the off air tuner...(792). This pops up when the reception is great and I checked signal strength and it was 80. This happens when watching live TV, but not on recordings made from the channel.

    We use CC on quite a few shows,e.g. Masterpiece Theater with the English accents and drama shows with background music that sometimes drowns out the spoken voice. It's almost useless on live shows as the words displayed come long after the words spoken.

    We were used to invoking CC with the yellow button, one down-arrow, and Select. Now it's a few more keystrokes to get it started or stopped, but not a big deal, IMO.

    I don't think it's really gone, but if you reset it to four seconds supposedly you can't get the two second delay back. :confused:
