0x104 : Release Notes
0x104 : Main Discussion Thread
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This release features an update to the way you can set recordings, via the full screen GUI method.
Note: This does not effect "one push" record options in the guide

Three Images:
Base Information Page for a program
Record Once
Record Series

This record menu structure is also consistent with the latest builds of the R15

There are no new options in the menu. This is only a change from the Tabular form of the record menu, to two distinct record menu options

Any word on them activating some sort of audio/beeps...to me that just makes it seem right...

Maybe its just me...or my brain being used to TIVO...
First thing I ever did to my TiVo was remove those annoying beeps. BEEP.:rolleyes:

Just say NO to beeps! :D

Very nice change. I HATE the tabs on the page. Too much moving around with the cursor. Yet another thing to look forward to.

Earl, this is going to be an R15 question, but since it relates to this feature I'm posting it here. When shall we expect to see this update on the R15? I was just bouncing around on the R15 last night updating some of my SL's and I was getting really irritated having to cursor up to select the tab and then back down.

Soon ;)
Seriously... they have a release candidate out with the testing teams.

I like this change. I don't visit this menu area often, but when I do I always have to remember that I need to make changes in a screwy way. That's how I'm able to get it right. This "new" way will make it much easier on my brain - thanks DirecTV.

Extended Staggered Rollout: Small subset of users first (mostly Pacific Timezone), then a gradual increaes of the user base. primarily by timezones. Being that this is such a large release, it make take several days for everyone to receive the update. Please don't ask why you don't have the update, unless you see an update that the release has gone national; and you don't have the release yet.

Why not just use the green and red buttons to access the tabs. No cursoring (or cursing) needed.

I musta missed that trick in the tips and tricks area. I thought the green and red buttons were only good for 12 hr jumps in the guide! :(

My R15 already has it that way and I was wondering when the HR20 would be this way. Nice change!

Since when does your R15 have that? Mine doesn't?
Runner has one of the "non-national" builds.

A new release for the R15 is being tested, and we should be seeing it soon.
And the Record Options, are there.

Mine has had it for a few weeks. When "MyVOD" became "MyPlaylist". [Sorry, I'm at work right now so I can't check the specific version number but I do remember it is an upgrade some say they got and then lost, I haven't lost it.]

Not really sure how I got it either. I didn't force the upgrade as far as I can remember.
It started to push out, to a limited user base... but then was halted.

Awwww fu.....dge...

In hindsight this is kinda funny. I hate the tabs on my sat receivers but I use Firefox as a browser because I like tabbed browsing. Hmmm..... :confused:
