Ok.. It has been a while since we have done a wish list and I figured it is about time. What I would like to do before we all vote on the list, is to provide one feature you want.. Just one.. The top feature. I will take the top 10 and create a poll for us to Wish on.... Anybody that adds more than one.. I will just take the top...

I will give this thread a week and next week create a poll. Lets have fun with this and through out your most wanted feature and lets keep it to features. I won't be including things like stability or a specific bug fixed because those I consider fall into a on-going development bucket.

For me...
Native Resolution Pass through

Good Thread idea. Should be retitled if Charlie wasn't to busy buggering his VP Jim, what could he do to make the service better, but I get your point.

Gee, how about native resolution output so the VIP is not altering the resolution. The Directv HD DVR boxes have had this from day one. Pass the resolution to me as it was given to you, I'll do the upconverting, thanks Charlie.

P.S. Add Speed HD by fall or I'm switching to Directv.

How about a second HD output. Maybe (if distance isn't a factor) have a way for TV2 to be HD

Sticky buffer while recording.
That would have been my close second. :D

Not that this will do any good because we've completed these before but here are my two choices:

1. Native resolution passthrough
2. 2 HDMI vs. 1.3 (not HD TV) outputs

The ability to adjust horizontal and vertical picture size. I only see the top half of the scrolling info on the bottom of the screen on many channels. When I adjust the TV horizontal or vertical , I then lose top info. We need the ability to shrink the picture E* sends or they need to fix the sent picture.

Video distribution support for HD rather than just low NTSC.

Oh and if Dish wants to be taken seriously in the custom integrator market (they never will be) would discrete off and on commands, as well as RS232 be too much to ask for?
It does have discreet on/off commands. I use them. Anticipate ethernet rather than RS232 control.

My top request would be full ethernet support: stream video to another receiver, move recordings to another receiver (like can be done with EHDs) and remotely schedule recordings.

If you feel that counts as three features, then moving recordings using ethernet trumps the other two, at least for me. But I want it all! :D

I'd definitely go with "resume play" on currently recording shows.

However, if that one is already taken -- the previous "sticky buffer" comments, then I'll suggest:

Add an option to be able cancel all future recordings of a certain show. Now, you have to cancel them one-by-one. For example, one of my passes may find a dozen repetitions of the same old show, and I have to go through them all. No fun!
