    You can play the games and win $, besides posting your high scores...

    Wish I could set a recorded show on the 'List' to 'Watched'. I have a few HR20's and I will watch a recording on another HR20. I'd like to set a show on another HR20 to 'Watched' without having to open it and watch for a second. Something like the speedy '--' to delete a show.

    "Ability to designate a show as 'watched' or 'unwatched', regardless of its playback status" is already on the list. If you haven't yet voted for it, you can do so here.

    Of course, if we had MRV, you might not have to manage the same show on multiple HR20's. :) /steve

    You don't need the phone line connected to use Game Lounge, just the ethernet connected.

    I think a real useful feature would be: While you are in the Guide, push one button to see HD channels only. It could even be set up to togle back and forth, form "All Channels" to just "HD Channels". Currently you have to go to Category Sort and scroll down the list to get a HD listing only.

    If this request is granted:

    Ability to cycle through the CUSTOM channel lists while in GUIDE or MINI-GUIDE.

    You can just create a custom list with the HD channels you want to monitor... or sports channels, or movie channels, etc.

    I tried and was connected through the internet w/ Ethernet (Crossover cable).
    Yet you still cannot create an account, it gives you an error message.
    they only made the Gamelounge account info available through a landline.:mad: :nono2:
    I can play games w/o a Phoneline, but nothing regarding an account for $ or token play.

    I've got both a phone line and an ethernet connection, yet I have never been able to create an account online. I always get the error message. I've Emailed the game lounge folks and never got a response.

    You can still play the games, though. Does one really need an account? No, not really.

    Hi Steve,

    Do you know this based on conversations with Earl? It seems to me I am not asking for anything more than slip. I am just asking for the dvr to slip based on user input that is saved (as opposed to user input on the fly). I am not asking for skip, just slip.

    In case this post sounds argumentative, it is not meant to be. Just asking a question.

    That was just my interpretation of Earl's post. I don't think D* would enable any technology to auto-remove commercials beyond what other DVR manufacturers offer, but that's just my opinion. I could be wrong! :) /steve

    While in the Menu, i would like to see the the Scroll Up roll over to the bottom line in the menu, instead of going to the top and staying there.

    We already have this request on the Wish List:

    Continue to scroll the cursor to the bottom (or top) when reaching the top (or bottom) of a list or menu pane. "Aiwa" up to "Zenith" in the remote code list, e.g., or "Zodiac" down to "24" in the PLAYLIST.

    If you haven't already taken the survey, please do so here and let D* know how you value this and the other requests on the list. TIA. /steve

    The new wishlist item to disable the Up and Down arrow during playback would take those keystrokes away so that they could not be used to control Dual Live Buffers or other new features.

    Do you mean this one? :)

    Ignore CHANNEL UP/DOWN while watching recordings, to prevent inadvertently exiting PLAYBACK or clearing the LIVE buffer.


    I'd personally like to see ARROW DOWN switch buffers, if DLBs ever happens, and ARROW UP toggle CC's. Just my 02. /steve

    As more and more people hook up their HR20 to the network with the upcoming release of DoD, more and more users are going to be coming to the site with issue related to Media Share. I personally believe the "debugging" capability is horrible on the HR20 in this area. A log file would be really helpful, but instead, maybe a debugging "test screen" would be just as useful to determine where the communication failures are happening. Therefore, I would like to suggest a new item for the wish list:

    Create a "Test Media Share" option under HELP & SETTINGS->SETUP->SYSTEM SETUP that runs a series of detail tests (described here) to allow users to debug Media Share issues.

    "Help & Settings", "Setup", and "System Setup" and either as an option in "Network" or a new section called "Media Share" create a function that tests your Media Share, like the "Test Connection" does for the "Network" setup.

    In particular, it should be detailed and would be used instead of a non-existent log file. It should follow the standard negotition process between the Media Share Client (MSC), the HR20, and the Media Share Server (MSS). Something like:

    Code:
    Network Connected --> Yes using IP x.x.x.x
    Broadcasting for Avail Servers -->  
       Found Server <SERVER-X>
       Found Server <SERVER-Y>
       Found Server <SERVER-Z>
    
    Testing Server <SERVER-X>
    Testing Communication --> Sucessful on 4356/tcp
    Negotiating Acceptable Music Formats --> PCM
    Negotiating Acceptable Photo Formats --> JPG, TIF
    Sucessfully Communication with <SERVER-X>
    
    Testing Server <SERVER-Y>
    Testing Communication --> Sucessful on 4625/tcp
    Negotiating Acceptable Music Formats --> None
    Negotiating Acceptable Photo Formats --> JPG
    Sucessfully Communication with <SERVER-Y>
    
    Testing Server <SERVER-Y>
    Testing Communication --> Failed on 4945/tcp
    Failed Communication with <SERVER-Y>

    I just filled out the survey today, great job with the list.

    I would like to be able to create folders like the Series Links in the playlist. I would like to organize recordings like movie genre, sports, etc. I have Patriots games recorded, but they are scattered through the rest of my recordings. It would be alot easier to find them if they were grouped as I choose.



    Sorry for the duplicate post- Shoeless Joe submitted a post in the regular threads just today that stated the same thing.

    Not sure it completely addresses you're request, but have you tried the "hidden" category filter that is available when hitting MENU while in the PLAYLIST?

    (And I'm sure you know you can default to an alpha sort of the PLAYLIST, though I know that would only group PATRIOTS@ away games. :)). /steve

    I admit a test like this would be very elegant, but I don't understand how it is more helpful in the long run than just seeing if servers show up in the Music and Pictures screen, and if the HR20 can or cannot see MP3s and/or JPEGS on them? Seems to me that if a server or filetype is not showing, it's either a problem with the server, the serving app or a bug or incompatibility that D* needs to address, and not some setting I can tweak on the HR20.

    Maybe you can explain what I'm missing? TIA. /steve
