    So, I started looking through this thread: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=747592 and the related PDF: http://www.dbstalk.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=12042&d=1200504590. The PDF is kind of busy and I thought it might be better to break down those topics into individual FAQ's instead of having all that stuff in one document

    So, my plan was to start at the top of the PDF and work through each topic as a separate FAQ. I started working on "Remote Control" tips, but that is still a work in progress. I did finish one on trickplay however.

    If anyone has thoughts on a better approach, let me know. Until then, here's the first installment...

    EDIT: V1.1 Updated with icons...
    V1.2 Updated grammar, caps, and formatting.
    V1.3 Fixed title

    New version in here: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=2898348#post2898348

    Very nice. One thing that I think needs to be changed is the button references on the remote should be described as {EXIT} {STOP} {PAUSE}.

    The document is very clear and much easier to read than the older one.

    I was hoping to find some icons for those buttons. I think that would make it look real nice. Anyone have a remote icon library? :)

    Thanks for the feedback!

    How do you delete a bookmark?

    I don't think they can be deleted anymore.This used to be the way, but due to the remapping of the yellow button, it no longer works:

    1. Press YELLOW button
    2. Select Bookmarks from bottom of list (only works if any have been set)
    3. Select bookmark to delete
    4. Press DASH key twice.

    I guess I'll just take out the deleting part unless that function returns.

    Yes, I tested it the other night on the new GUI and it works as described in my FAQ. I just couldn't figure out how to delete them...

    Yes, I did it this afternoon for the first time ever. (just to figure out if I could delete it)

    I think the last time I added a bookmark was 2006. No kidding :)

    I'm going to have to try that, never put in or taken out a bookmark before. :)

    Of course, I'll need to read your doc again to find out how to do it.

    Yeah, I thought about that but unfortunately, there's a magnetic shield that prevents beaming and that also interferes with computational devices... :D

    You're taking a vacation to Star Trek V? I don't envy you. That movie was viciously bad.

    :lol: That's from Star Trek VI. They need to get outside the magnetic shield on Rura Penthe. :)

    But you're right... ST:5 was just plain bad.

    You're right about Rura Penthe... (and you want to vacation there?) but I believe something similar is in place in the park in ST:V because they need to send a shuttlecraft.

    New version with icons in the 1st post...

    I shrunk down the icons to make it match the text. How's the readability?
