    I don't believe so. They are apparently handling these changes as they come, in real-time, which was the reason we needed a better way to deal with them. That was the genesis of the recent thread/poll we ran.

    IOW, it was intended to instruct D* how we would like to see them deal with changes even while a recording might be in progress. /steve

    OK.

    Like your new avatar.
    So what are the chances Joe will stick it to George and become a Mets bench coach?

    How about program descriptions when being displayed in the To DO list? This feature does not currently exist with the HR20.

    Currently, only non-useful verbiage is listed above the master list of To Do items.. why not use that space to display the program info of the program highlighted in the list below?

    That one's already on there. It's one of the most-requested. :) We've got so many items on the main list, it's easy to miss one. /steve

    Show program description in the "To Do List" and "History", instead of a static message.

    I didn't see one to improve the meta-data for searches. I see the big one about improving how search works. But, without a vast improvement in the meta-data, the search is useless. I've not figured out why UltimateTV, ReplayTV and TIVO meta-data is so much more complete. I've assumed they all get the show info from basically the same source.

    How about this one? It's on the survey and one of the top vote-getters. It's the first of the two to vote on in the "SEARCH/AUTORECORD" category, along with the "big one". :)

    Add more program description INFO, to allow better SEARCHES and more show details, like "Original Air Date".

    I think a nice feature woud be able to Mark as Not Viewed for recordings. Reason being that since there is an issue with partial/incomplete recordings occuring, we must select/play a recording and FFWD to the End to see if we "got it all". But if you don't want to watch the program at that time, it gets marked (grayed out) as "VIEWED". It would be nice to be able to un-gray it.

    "Ability to designate a show as 'watched' or 'unwatched', regardless of its playback status" is already on the Wish List. :) It's in the "User Interface" category. /steve

    Just so you know, we also have this one on the list, which is more popular, based on THUMBS UP votes:

    OPTION to use the PLAY key for PLAY/PAUSE and the PAUSE key for SLOW MOTION.
