Wow...the new "My apps" really suck. What happened to them?

    Sorry, but you off the mark here. The new score guide IS NOT WORKING. Segments of the score guide aren't populated or even kept up-to-date. Its a horrible piece of hot mess. Who ever decided to take down the old My TV Apps for this should be fired or punished. I suspect someone who wanted all of those d... European/Mexican soccer scores is behind the changes.

    Yes, Mexican soccer fans are the reason. They hate you.

    Thank you. Nothing like little men running around play with each other. Only major league sport I believe that women could take part in and dominate.

    I can see why they hate you.

    Give the apps time Kemosahbee.

    I hardly ever used the old apps, but the new ones load fairly quickly- about 6 seconds, and are vastly easier on the eyes. I don't care about additional ones or customizing, as I watch with a laptop running, and can use the internet for any customizable anything else.

    I agree.

    Instead they should be giving us a:
    PIP toggle
    Manage Recordings List shortcut (LIST>LIST)
    Menu + # shortcuts to the menu screens
    (all 3 could easily be implemented)

    They need to fix the basics first, then worry about the add on stuff. Who's ever in charge of the software department at D* needs a wake up call.

    Inkahauts, I have done CE software with that receiver. Even had downloaded the CE's of the testing of the HD Apps, and the CE's worked better. I was able to pull up the HD Apps then.

    When D* did the national release of the HD Apps, that's when the problems occurred. Like I said, I tried to do the manual reset and the "02468" reloading of the latest national release, but neither of these corrected the problem. Am I missing a step to correct the issue?

    Mods: if you need to move this post to the CE forum, I totally understand and feel free to do so if need be.

    [SIZE=8.5pt]Worked the first day, hasn't worked since. How does a product go live with this many problems? How embarrassing for Direct. (IMHO)[/SIZE]

    Well Lax, you know I'm certainly no DIRECTV basher having been with them non-stop for 18 years come this Sep. 15th or 16th;

    But this one needs to go back to the drawing board I'm afraid. And I have to say you are very lucky if your HD TV apps are performing that well.

    As they're barely functioning here.

    Really.... Perhaps there is a reason why soccer is the BIGGEST sport WORLDWIDE.

    Don't live in Europe or Latin America, but in the USA and soccer continues too fall far behind other sports. Its a little man game that doesn't transfer, as-a-whole to this country. Yes all the networks are pushing it to us viewers but its appeal is just not there. Nothing like watching a 1-1 tie. You can't beat an exciting HS or College football game.

    The Scoreguide 2.0 simply doesn't work. Scoreguide 1.0 simply DID work.

    This is a regression, and a big one. I wonder how it got through D* internal testing.

    If you used to run ces, I might have an idea of what could possibly causing your issue maybe... I'll send you a pm.

    On a long...
    this morning I found if I selected a game, I could select to view or record the channel(s) it was being shown on. Not sure when this came live, but when I first had my 44 installed a month ago, it wasnt there.

    I do miss the team apps the most. I used them all to check game times, be it in the morning before I left for work or looking to see the next few days ahead. I really liked the 1st round when we could have more than one MLB, NFL team etc.

    I disagree that the sports app is better. For one, the font is so tiny AND it can be over 24hr late so its not up to date...... I will give credit to where its due, the weather app is better and I know have radar I can watch if big storms are coming.

    The font size is very readable, if you're close enough, if your set is good, and if your eyesight is all right. I don't peruse it for scores, but for upcoming games.
