Time for the annual (3rd?) plea in hopes of a fix before the college football season starts. Previous thread at http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=141398 First post of that thread: I held off on this post for a few weeks into the college football season, but now I really need to make this plea: PLEASE make the progress bar disappear more quickly when using '30 sec slip'! PLEASE! Yes, I know (at one point, at least) it's on the Wish List. And, yeah, I've read it doesn't appear if you switch to '30 sec skip' And, yeah, I know you can make it go away by hitting PLAY a couple of times. But, slip works better than skip for FF between plays (you can stop FF if they start a play before 30 sec - very common in CFB); needing to hit PLAY is just plain annoying. This really shouldn't be that hard to fix, there are multiple acceptable options (e.g., don't show it at all, make the display time programmable like banners), and it would really improve the "experience". So, DirecTV, please help us sports viewers (who spend all the extra $s for Game Plan, etc.) have a better experience with your DVRs. Please fix this soon!
