    Remote response was perfect last night.

    No double key bounce and no waiting 2-4 seconds for a response after pressing a key.

    Also overall menu and guide is much zippier.

    Very pleased here.

    My HR20 now has all the features and the performance I could ask for. A new TiVo is a non-issue at this point.

    Something different with the new software. Called up my playlist this AM. Found two copies of "monsters and aliens" PPV which I didn't order. Those never showed up before in a personal playlist when force downloaded before into the movie section. New marketing policy???

    Wanted to catch an Imus interview, but the recording wasn't on the playlist. Looked on the series manager and it was there, but could only get it to program the show by making a single recording. It won't accept a series programming of the Imus show. Tried other FBN shows and they would create a series. Someone at DTV mad at Imus?

    Lots of rain fade problems last night, but I had 7.9 inches in my bucket overnight, so I guess it could be expected. Hurricane quantity rainfall in the midwest last night.

    That's what the "Series Manager" is for. Put the show that has multiple showings lower down in the list and the show that is only one once higher.

    Got the update yesterday. The DVR is now MUCH more responsive to the remote.

    PPV programs are not charged unless you actually watch them. You will have to go through some purchase screens to get past the 5 minute mark.

    As for ending up in your personal playlist. When you select a PPV for viewing, if it is one of the ones stored on your reserved space and it is selected, then it will instantly be "recorded" onto your personal space. That part is by design because once you "record" it, then you have until the expiration date to watch the show. There is no guarantee that the program will remain in the reserved area through the expiration date as DIRECTV may replace it with a different show.

    HR22-100 here in the SE Wisconsin. No Update last night.

    Most likely I will have to wait until at least Sunday night now, due to the CE the next two nights?

    Question. I pushed the dash button by accident last night on my HR23-700 and it not only gave me my receiver ID but also told me that SWiM was enabled. Anybody else see this? Also, pardon my ignorance but what will the SWiM do for me?

    SWiM is Single Wire Multiswitch. That allows you to connect both tuners using one coax, great for pre-wired homes. You need to have a SWiM setup, though. If you had one, you'd know it.

    I got the same message too; but I don't have a Single Wire Multiswitch set up.

    I now get the same message when pressing dash. This is not correct as I don't have SWiM. Needs to be fixed.

    if a unit is capable of using swm it says enabled, if its actually on a swm system it shows connected.
    I don't see this as a bug, its telling you your unit can use a swm.

    That's 56. Plus shows that we want to record at the spur of the moment. Plus shows that we want to watch while both DVR's are recording something else!

    I probably forgot something along the way! :nono::nono::nono:

    My wife does her list on a calender, with all the shows listed by the day. Then she has to prioritize all of them to both machines. It's incredible to watch!

    This is some serious stuff to her!:new_puppy

    Yah I know I can manipulate the record process to make this happen but it's a pain in the butt to do so & if your not careful it won't record at all! You should be able to select a time & channel from the program guide & it should record the series at that time & channel.

    Well, both of my units are not connected to a SWM and they both reported SWiM connected. Seems like a bug to me, although inconsequential.

    That's not the issue... Keyword Autorecord won't let me exclusively select the OTA HD channel rather than the LIL HD channel... so f'rinstance it will find matches on 29 (LIL HD) as well as 29-1 (OTA HD)

    Mind you, this is irrelevant for this channel, our local Fox, as Fox OTA will neither record nor buffer since we got 34C in September... I was hoping 368 would remedy this, but no joy.

    See additional info on this annoyance in the Issues thread.

    I complained about this during CE phase but no one seemed to care about this problem. I was able to record my local news as a series in the last NR but now I can't - no series recording option.

    It's not that no one cares, it's just not a software problem. It's a guide data problem, one that seems to be more prevalent recently. The guide data does not indicate that it is a series, therefore the software to deal with a series never gets invoked. Could be an error in the data sent from the local station to Tribune Media Services, or could be a data entry error at TMS.

    Still DIRECTVs problem, just not one that can be fixed with the software in the HRs, unless the software is improperly parsing the guide data, which, while possible, is unlikely. I think it is just a coincidence that it coincided with the new NR.
