    YES!

    That works great. Much faster than the way in the manual. The documented way makes you type out the name of the channel you want to list. You still have to wait for it to compile the 14 days. This is way better!

    Thank you!

    I will add it to the Tip and Tricks:

    I would like to see the status bar disappear a little quicker. It makes it hard when paused to read the tickers at the bottom on ESPN, CNN, etc. This was made possible in the earlier DVR's by using the backdoor codes. Hopefully they'll be some of the same codes developed for this unit...:)

    Violá!

    Your wish is their command!

    The Simple answer is just to press EXIT and the Banner is gone.

    Version 2.6 of the HR-Tips and Tricks was a major upgrade adding this and a number of other tips.

    You can also set the banner time to 2, 4, or 6 seconds with these keystrokes:
    MENU --> Help & Setup --> Display --> Banner Time

    I will include that in the upcoming 2.7. There are dozens of other tips coming in that update.

    Let me know how this works,

    - Craig

    I'd love it if they added the ability to schedule shows people want to have recorded, record them, and then let the user watch the recordings later.


    I think that'd be keen.

    Would like to see Optical port disabled when unit is in standby. It is active all the time right now and I am unable to use my optical switch on my A/V Receiver.

    I LOVED the auto-tune feature of the UTV dvr... I'd like to see not only the auto-tune feature added to the HR20 but also the pop-up reminder feature that would remind you that a program was starting in XX seconds and give you the option of tuning to the program or ignoring the reminder!

    Much of this discussion has moved to the HR20 Wish List Survey thread.

    The ability to auto-change to a channel - same as if recording program without actually recording it currently ranks #38 (of 56).

    Can the pop-up reminders be added to the auto-change function (since they really do go hand in hand) in the survey list? Or would that need to be added as a seperate item?

    Again, this is a Wish List item, not a design description. I would expect that auto-tune would do exactly what record does (including the pop-up), just that after the channel change, it wouldn't start the recording except for the normal buffer. While a nice to have, I wouldn't use this feature often. If I wanted it to change to the new show, I would just record it, and then delete when done. But, I do understand how it is useful. Check out the HR20 Wish List Survey and voice your opinion on this and many other feature requests.

    Is there already a way I don't know about to skip to the end of a recoding via playback? If not is there a way to "Reset" a recording? If one person starts watching something but wants to reset it for the next person, is the only option right now to fast-forward to the end?

    Press and hold the 30 sec slip button for 3 sec or so and it will skip to the end of the recording. Press and hold the couple second rewind button for 3 sec or so and it will return to the beginning of a recording.

    Reverse the functions of the pause button and the play button - the pause button should be the larger of the two.

    If anyone has had UltimateTV there is a tiny but useful feature that displays the word 'Live' on the top right corner of the screen when you catch up to the program you are watching.

    I often times will hit FF or commercial skip multiple times and not realize that I am 'live' (or caught up to the live programming) until I've hit the button more than twice.

    Again, this doesn't seem like a huge implementation issue but it is very useful - especially during sport events when you are switching back and forth between 2 recordings and buffering yourself;)

    All of your UTV'ers out there know what I mean!

    Cheers

    Jay
