Then you hit Select; two steps. The other way you hit Select only, no?
Yes. but I said EXTRA step. Moving the highlight from DON'T DELETE to DELETE is only one step, the extra step.
All that delete complexity can be solved easily with a deleted items folder.
Yes, it all depends on one's view/starting point. I see the first confirm as an extra step; the having to arrow to another choice is a second extra step.
Was watching TV live yesterday morning and paused it @ 9:04. Came back to "live" TV early evening - still had the Frozen screen paused @ 9:04, but buffer was in the 5pm range. Was unable to play any of the buffer until I got it up to the time when I switched to live TV (around 6:15). Tried rewinding to beginning of buffer, but nothing played - screen would show whatever screenshot was last being displayed when rewinding.
Congratulations DTV... another POS software release! :nono2:
One step forward (HR34/C31 whole home and Youtube working) and 2 steps backward (freezes? crashes? really?!!!).
Latest freeze here crashed the HR34. Assuming these POS report home... may DTV receive so many that they are overloaded.
While I welcome features finally working I don't think it's a move in the right direction when the most basic things FAIL.
I hate to post this and jinx myself, but this seems like the most stable release in quite some time. My PIP and swap are working great, with no lockups so far.
The biggest what I call "crime" DTV commits against its customers: not having a method to recover deleted files. How about for this for starters: you delete a file, then the next message on the screen says "DO YOU WANT TO RECOVER THE DELETED FILE. YES/NO/"
If not a double prompt, a "Deleted Items" folder would be nice.
My old TiVo has such a folder, where recently-deleted programs would stay for several hours. Very handy on several occasions.
After all my years with Dish, they finally added a deleted recordings folder to the Hopper, keeps them for 2 days.
The biggest crime to me is that after a year plus they still cant get the genie to work as intended. Close second is the loss of timers. My god let the remote hold the info or even better let us save them for easy re-download from your website. Last but not least hire a new set of firmware designers, a group that deals with customer support that actually listens to requests and get more people that speak English naturally and not some oxy moron who only replies with the emotion only a teleprompter can deliver.
Happy New Year
I agree that is very disappointing. Perhaps they don't have the right people (skill set wise) working on it. There must be some programmer out there that could resolve some of the issues people continue to put up with.
I am new as a DTV subsciber, but have been in the A/V industry for about 7 years as an AMX/Crestron programmer. DTV is my favorite for integration due to the availability of the SHEF protocol, however I am not happy now that I have the HR34 and 3 clients installed in my home as of 10 days ago. I frequently have to reboot the clients due to the "grey" screen issue, inability to reliably stream a movie, and not able at this time to control the C31 via SHEF commands. Much of this can be overlooked but the grey screen issue is pretty serious from an integration point of view. I see that this is a known issue, is there a fix in the works? Will the C31's ever be able to process SHEF commands?
That would require management to have half a brain.
What does POS mean? Thanks.
Piece Of Shi...
FWIW, I find this software an improvement over 0x05D3.
Do you have a C31?
The HR34 itself may very well have improved. The C31 is worse - and it wasn't good before.
The C31/RVU stuff is yet another far premature "release". Reminds me of an ancient adage of poor management/"engineering"... If it compiles... ship it!. Or in this case, may be more If it doesn't burst into flames...
Playing HD recording of the local news and the screen saver comes on every few minutes even though the audio is still playing. Hitting play brings back the video. There should be an option to kill the screen saver anyway!
The screen saver should take more button pushes than the to do list to activate. It should be off by default. Only if you have some old antiquated display from 1960 should you need a screen saver. DUMB
No C31 every update is a downgrade with more things that do not work properly.
