    Craig,

    I totally agree with you. Of interest when I checked todays survey it had one vote and he or she voted half the survey as 5's and the other half as 1's. If this person is voting three times a day it almost makes you have to vote 3 times a day in defense.

    Doug,

    I stumbled on your note addition at the top of the survey list today. I had not noticed it until I scrolled to the top of the survey to check a couple of my votes. Would it make sense to highlite the note with a color?

    Thanks,

    Carl

    Does this current wish include the OTA channels? If not, I would like to add it to the Wish List or combine it with this Wish.

    Receive an alert via Calls & Msgs from DirecTV when the channel lineup changes.

    Somewhere, in one of the many HR20 threads, I indicated I would very much like a live buffer that kept recording when the unit was in standby.

    Well, I discovered today that the buffer on the HR20 does in fact keep recording in standby. I never realized it or even tried it because I was used to the R15, which does not.

    Happy I am with my HR20.

    There are a couple of items that were on the survey but seem to be missing (not on the move to backburner list nor removed for other reasons that I can see in Jan when I know they were there):

    1) Increase the number of items in the prioritizer - the current limit is 50
    2) Negative Padding - The ability to automatically adjust a recording (start late/end early) by a user definable number of minutes

    Any idea what happened to them?

    I've always thought the same, but when I turned the HR20 on the other day, there was no buffer even though it had been on the same channel all night during standby. I have no idea what determines when the buffer will be active during standby. Anyone?

    Here's my wish:

    Normalize audio output from one channel to the next.

    At best, AGC all channels, at least, increase OTA channel audio by a fixed amount.

    Most OTA audio, in my area, is about 30% lower in output than satellite audio.

    Hey, Doug. I just completed the survey and apparently messed up my confirmation code (I swear it was right - shrug). I had checked to have my input saved and it was, but I was taken to the message that the confirmation was wrong and I needed to reinput all the data. Instead, I did a browser Back and was brought back to my input completely filled in and a new confirmation code. It worked fine this time.

    And, BTW, in case you missed it -- GO HEELS! Beat State! (Follow by Tarheel fight song including the appropriate conclusion -- with assistance from my grandsons ;) )

    Hi Doug, I like your new survey format.

    I have two questions under Missing Promised Features. For the item 'The ability to edit "all the programs" in the Prioritizer (even when there are no upcoming episodes) p. 28.' and 'Search "with your desired...keyword" p. 2 - Allow @, :, etc. & better search logic - AND, OR, NOT. Ignore "The" and "A" in titles.' I can't find them on the referenced pages. Are they referring to the manual?

    Thanks,
    Carl

    There was a period of time last week when there were some problems. This must be when you looked at the list. Things have been steady now since late last Friday and these two items remain on the list as expected.

    Someone will need to second this request before a Poll will be created. The Poll will determine whether or not it goes on the HR20 Wish List. I will add it to The Back Burner for now.

    Yes, these are in the manual. The wording uses some of the text from the manual, but still needs to be shortened as much as possible. That may be why there is some disconnect.

    I would also like to see it on the other bar. I like to be able to gear how much time I have left in a program with the live time so I can make decisions about my viewing all at once instead of having to look in two places. I don't have another clock in this room, so if I want to know what time it is, I have to look in the "info" too. which is two steps (and one step too many in my opinion). Its truly the thing about the HR20 that annoys me the most. Maybe I should just buy a clock and quit worrying about it...

    Thanks for doing the survey. You've done an awesome job!!

    I hope I have the right forum to post this.... (first post)

    I work for a custom home theater company, and I deal with DIRECTV HD and HD dvr's all the time. The two things that have to change are IR sensor sensitivity (too sensitive) and an IR port on the back of the boxes. We use Universal remotes that either work RF with a base station or IR with a sensor on the tv. Both are routed to single emitters that control each device. The H20's and HR20's both are very difficult to control with emitters. (H10's worked so much better) Anyway, if DIRECTV actually reads any of this.... Then they really need to look into these issues. It's really frustrating when hooking up a system and it takes an hour just to get the sat box to function 80% of the time. Please don't recommend setting the box in RF mode. Our remotes dome work on the RF frequency. (Besides, DIRECTV went cheap, new boxes come without RF remotes).

    Long rant I know... but it's an issue that needs to be fixed ASAP.

    I just got back from a long trip where I had . . . p l e n t y . . . of time to think while on the plane and I had some suggestions. I apologize for not reading all 28 pages of this post but I have read them in the past and I don't think that these are there.

    -Increase framerate to at least 15fps in 1xFF and 2xFF
    -Add a line on the info screen with date and time of last reboot

    My wish is for D* to give us a box that works or give us some reduced pricing to compensate for all of the failed boxes..............

    This would be a great feature addition. I've created a Poll to see if it should be added to the HR20 Wish List Survey. 50% or more for YES votes gets it on the list. The poll is open for 3 days.
