    I am going to call David's document DIRECTV Networking and Schwefel's document General Networking. There is a lot of great information available in both and there is no harm in having separate documents. Many that are looking for one are not necessarily looking for information on the other.

    • OTA - David Ortiz
    • Remotes - Go Beavs
    • HDDVR/TiVo FAQ's - Inkahauts

    I am only speaking for myself, but yes.

    I do not have enough knowledge in the other areas to write the docs but I am happy to assist other ways if desired.

    I read than and wondered about "the rest of it".
    What do the lights mean?
    What do you look for with receivers that have one internal?
    How do you run the diagnostic tests?

    Adding info about the lights is fine as well as what receivers have it internally.

    Do we want to give basic knowledge of how to use or write full technical bulletins? What percentage of users will ever need to run the diagnostics, and is it worth putting it in.

    If it needs to be there we will add it, if not then we won't.

    VOS, these are honest questions and not meant to be sarcastic in any way. When I read it back it just didn't sound the best. :)

    I unlocked the thread.

    Do you have info on the light colors and such? I know mine work and there are lights on it but I'm (partially) color blind so I pay no attention to them. :)

    I just assume they are the right color. These things are easy to edit so now is better than later.

    Portland,...
    Mine should be done this weekend.

    As far as combining mobile apps and nomad, I think the mobile apps (well at least DAFI) is covered pretty well in the First Looks. What more can we say about it? I guess we could make some step by step instructions on how to do things in the apps. Or, a simple run down of what each app does.

    I would love to see an FAQ on boolean search strings. I see a lot of examples on how to use them but not many on the proper method or rules of how they work.

    I dunno, just thinking out loud...

    As someone who used to be a champion of boolean serching, I've given up using them, especially now that only 30 characters of input are visible. That said, if someone wants to take a crack at another FAQ, both this post and this one cover the gamut of what can be done.

    Thanks Steve, I'll give it a shot. I have literally never done one but it looks like all questions will be answered there.
