I'm looking into moving from my DirecTV Tivo 250 to the DirecTV non-tivo model involuntarily (my current unit is failing). What I most fear is losing the wishlist functionality. From perusing this site and others, it appears that there's a claim that the wishlist is on this unit search with autorecord. I've even got a in-law who installs the machine and insists that autorecord = wishlist. But is there anyway to mimic my tivo functionality of having a long wishlist (hundreds and hundreds of film titles) NOT set to autorecord (once a week I search my wishlist and then manually decide what to record - this prevents many problems with autorecord like recording the wrong thing (e.g., the wrong version of a film) or not recording the right thing cause it's out of space). Can this be done with the DirecTV non-tivo unit? It's my main way of using my unit, and something I really, really don't want to lose. Thanks for you help.
