That's what I said, isn't it? Chill out.
Thanks for the insight - next time I guess I won't bother posting.....
It's busted... There's no way to disable the screen saver.
<Steve Martin> Well, exxcuuuuzzzze me! </Steve Martin>
It appears that you are also annoyed when I point out how trivial it is to disengage the screen saver- about 300 milliseconds. But I can't be responsible for your innate level of annoyance/chill factor.:nono2:
Are you the Jeremy W Nixon of usenet fame?
OK .. Let's move along now .. Thanks!
Gotta love a pi##in' match.
When listening to a SonicTap channel, my info banner disappears after five minutes of inactivity and is replaced by the screen saver with the song info instead of the DirecTV logo bouncing around on the screen.
Both my HR20-700's were running VERY slowly. Ignoring remote commands, sluggish to a fault. A system reset woke 'em up.... Just an FYI it it helps somebody.
BTW - I noticed my subset mask was set to 255.255.0.0. I could've swown it was 255.255.255.0 before. No surprise, TV apps weren't working. Set it back to 255.255.255.0 and all was well.
This could've been my error, but I kinda doubt it (I'm an IT guy)..... Either way, no big deal
I have some new logo's today on my HR24...lost some too?? Any luck with yours? Comedy Central, HBO2 East, WGN are a few I recall being added. While editing my favorites list (fastest way to check out logos) I noticed the west coast HD DNS stations have no logo's but the east ch's do?? No new logos for the recently added HBO's either. I wish there was a folder of logos you could select from and add your own, new or old. I had an RCA tv back in the early 90's with that feature.
My point was that the screensaver isn't necessary to see the song info.
Yeah same here. Several gained, a few lost, some still missing.
I once lost logos for about a month and they magically returned one day after a guide data flush. Patience, my friends - they'll be back (eventually).
You don't understand, a lot of the ones I was missing were NEVER there, they didn't "disappear" one day, yesterday was the first time they ever showed up. Also a few are now gone that were there before. What's up with that? I tried "flushing the guide" last week twice and it didn't work. I wish people would quit suggesting that, it doesn't work for me. I'm still missing a bunch too (again they've NEVER been there, they didn't "disappear".)
Bug (H24-100): Tune to a channel you haven't subscribed to. You get a message that says "not subscribed" (it used to say not authorized) in the bottom-right corner of the screen. Now tune to a channel you do get. The "not subscribed" message does not go away. You can still see the content, but the message remains. There is no obvious way to clear the message. After playing for about 10 minutes, I have found two ways of doing it:
2. Press "menu". The small window doesn't show the channel you were on, but the unsubscribed channel you tried to tune to earlier. (Different bug or different effect of the same bug?) Change the channel in this window to a channel you do get by using the number keys. Exit the menus. This will get rid of the message.
Or, you could just subscribe to said channel........
I just tried it on some Spanish language channels, and get the
"Searching for signal on Satellite In
message. Exit button does not do anything, but Back does.
This is on an H25, though, and there aren't many channels I don't subscribe to..
I am also annoyed about the CC change -- definitely a step backward.
For people who are modifying their remote macros to get 1-button CC-on or CC-off, there is another twist you should be aware of. If there is no mail, the mail listing does not show up in the caption. This will screw up your macro.
To fix this, start with a left and then right, right, ... to get to the CC entry. This works because the caption doesn't allow wrapping.
From what I see in the responses to this thread, the biggest group affected are those with universal remotes that have programmed macros. I use the standard DIRECTV remote, so I actually find the change welcome - I've used CC often since the change whereas I pretty much never used it before the change (regardless of "ease" or what not).
It seems the whole macro thing is where things have gone wonky .. it worked before now doesn't work.
It's pretty dumb that the yellow button and the info button do the same thing now. Who was the idiot behind that stupid idea?
I'm gonna go out on a limb at say that this won't always be the case.
Regarding CC --
Macros are part of the annoyance but the real problem is that it takes more than twice as many keystrokes to toggle CC as it did before the new release.
It's ironic because D* listened to us when we said improve the CC access and they came up with the "yellow button quick CC change". Now they turn around and make CC access worse.
