    Many, me included. have complained about the INFO banner appearing at the top of the screen twice when you change channels. As of yesterday no more. Now the "CHOICES" banner (messages, info, last four, etc.) appears at the top of the screen. TWICE! When will DTV get it? We only need whatever you put at the top of the screen just once. BTW, why is four seconds the shortest amount of time whatever banner appears? You should have a choice of 2 seconds, and in fact, zero seconds. I don't need no stinking banner.

    I don't want anything on the screen anywhere unless I push a button that displays it.

    The double showing is a bug, and the 2 second banner will be back. DIRECTV gets that, they just have other priorities to get fixed first. Missed recordings being number one I am hopping, expecting.

    I have never seen a DVR that doesn't flash a banner for at least a moment when you change channels or start a recording. Not even a TiVo... I don't expect anyone to ever make one either.

    Yes the TiVo flashed a banner but it was not solid like the DTV DVR. And flash is the operative word there.

    Folks who use a DVR like we do certainly know what we just tuned. We don't use the DVR as a real time tuner and we don't use the plus minus buttons to change channels. We either go to the guide and punch in our desired channel to schedule recordings, or we go to the list and start a program we already have recorded.

    The GUI now looks like the old fashioned TV Guide that was made when people got up and pushed buttons on the TV.

    We are having a common problem since the 0x548 patch.

    Shows just stop in the middle and we're asked if we want to delete the show. In every case, the show recorded fully.

    The "solution" has been to start over, ffwd, skip to end. Then rewind all the way to the dead spot. Then select resume.

    Real pain in the butt, and as a software developer, very discouraged that DirecTV is shipping software with these issues.

    Now we have a deadliest catch that stops right as we start the show. Cannot use our workaround.

    Frustrating.

    So you are saying almost everyone uses the DVR as a tuner for the TV with a remote. Horse hockey. Those folks just get a set top box like the H25. I don't care what sort of crippled useless stuff they put on a set top box. The people who use them deserve the worst. This is a new age. The old round screen black and white TVs are gone. Time to step up.

    Something new. I was in the FR mode at speed setting 4 and I went into the program that was in the preceding half hour and then I hit PLAY. The picture froze for about 15 seconds and then started to play after I pressed PLAY about ten times.

    Wow, nice attitude. Yes, the majority of people want the banner. You are in the minority, if you aren't the only one who doesn't.

    The problem with the way your statin this is you think everyone uses the dvr the exact same way, and we all know that's false. Just like I hate the way TiVo operates ca the hrs, yet some people prefer TiVo. I'm fine with that, and you should be too. A 2 second banner is completely acceptable. And that will be back. And for consistentancies sake they should operate the same from an h25 to a hr.

    HR34 with 0x548. As of today, now my HR34 backspaces when I hit PLAY while in the FFWD mode. At least with the one video I tried so far. That's great, but the problem is that it backspaces on the average of about 12 seconds. Way too much. My HR24 and HR 23 backspace about five seconds. For me, that's about right.

    Thinking 0x054A may now be the NR.

    I got it this AM at 4:28 AM. Completely reset my receiver. Customer Support told me I must have hit a wrong button.
