    Both my DirecTV HD DVR's have a "Queue" function in the Manage Recordings Menu section. When I click on Queue it shows: Programs & Preferences, when I then click on Program it shows: Items/None, when I click on Preferences it shows Keep At Most: 10 Programs.

    Both DVR's are actively recording a large number of series and individual shows normally.

    I can't see what purpose the Queue function serves. Can anyone here explain what the purpose of the "Queue" function is?

    Thank you.

    I've used it combined with the search function- Example- "name of a Movie" Search -Comes back NOT FOUND -Would you like to add it to your "Q" ?

    Click yes and it will record it when it shows up in the Guide.

    That's the way I use.
