    Wouldn't it be neat...?

    Not sure if this has been previously discussed or not, but wouldn't it be neat if D* were to allow you to click on a transponder on the Signal Strength page and press INFO for what is carried on that transponder? We would be able to see a list of each channel (name or number). And if they move...

    Recording indicator is now amber/red

    This may be a minor design change or possibly a physical issue with the light bulb/LED behind the face of my HR20-700, but ever since I downloaded the most recent CE (0x241) anytime I am recording something, the record indicator is now amber/red and not the yellow/orange it used to be. Is this...

    Interactive Commercials

    This is not meant to start an "E* is better than D* (or vice versa) war. Just asking about former functionality and "new" functionality... I am a D* sub, but I do like to see what others are doing so I subscribe to the E* Press Release feed and get occasional updates on their service. This...

    RSN-HD From another market

    I live in the SportSouth/FSN South region and normally only get Braves games in HD when they play at home. But yesterday I noticed that while the Braves were playing in Pittsburgh, I could get the HD game feed on SportSouth in HD. I couldn't tune to FSN-Pittsburgh (which was labeled as HD)...

    Canceled Recordings in HR20-700 ???

    Just a disclaimer: I am posted this on the DVR forum as well... I am running 0x1b4 (which I guess is now the national release, but prior to 10/30/07, I was on latest CE release).I have several shows that are on my "Season Pass" list that are frequently not recorded. When I look in the...

    Ooops, premature ad by D*

    Was just watching the end of the Titans/Bucaneers game on CBS and D* ran a spot stating D* is "now pumping out over 70 National channels in HD with up to 100 by the end of the year..." My only concern is that by conservative counts, D* is now only "pumping out" about 40-50 national HD...

    Remote Booking question(s)...

    I know better than to call in to D* about this, but my HR20-700's are both running the latest CE's and have followed the path of CE's (except one update that occurred while I was out of town). My LR box is fully networked and everything is fine for DOD. DOD is activated on MBR box, but not...

    Any Confirmation on new HD-LIL?

    Get your big grain of salt ready....:D I was over at my local AVS forum and someone mentioned that they had D* installed this week and his installer said that Charleston (DMA #100) was due for their HD-LIL's to be carried on D* beginning October 17th or 18th. This would be great, but I am...

    Long Cable Runs

    What is the safe limit of cable runs before signal degradation from the 5LNB or the multiswitch? My father is getting D* installed mid-September and will be feeding two receivers in his house, but he also has a B&B cottage on the back of his property. This may be a pretty tough non-standard...

    Dish Skins/Covers

    I have looked at older posts for Dish Skins (sports team logos, colleges, etc) and cannot seem to find any for the new 5LNB dishes. Does anyone know of a retailer that is supplying them for D* customers? I would really love to get a Duke skin...have seen other major colleges but still only for...

    Would have been nice to know...

    Is it the fault of CNN or D* that my program guide did not show any information about the Democratic Debate from Charleston tonight? It was carried on CNN, but the guide shows "The Situation Room" and "Paula Zahn Now" from 7-9pm, respectively. I had searched for "DEBATE" using Keywords and...

    RSN HD Feed question

    Got the 5LNB installed today, so I should now be able to receive my local RSN HD feeds (FSN South and SportsSouth), right? The Braves/Phillies game Friday night was supposedly shot/presented in HD, but I was unable to get it. I tried tuning to the SD channel since I had read on the D* site...

    Defragging my HR20-700

    Aside from doing a complete reset of all data, can the HR20's be "defragged"? My system is very choppy on replay, but crystal clear on live play. At first I thought it might be rain fade or bad cable/connection, but then I was watching SportsCenter and when I "blooped" back to see a...

    Considering "upgrading" to HR20 from 10-250

    My 10-250 is starting to have some identity issues: It occassionally fails to recognize shows that should be recorded from the WishList It seems to reboot on its own when I am not looking It sometimes records a garbled digital "collage" instead of the actual program. This could be an LNB...

    HR10-250's & 720p

    I have a HR10-250 playing through a GE 52" Rear Projection TV. The 10-250 has selectable output formats, band they all look good except the 720p. When I look at that output, it seems to break the image up into 2 separate images and "squishes" them horizontally on the screen. The colors are...

    HD Local Broadcasts

    Are there any/many markets that produce their own content in HD? Namely the 6:00 and 11:00 news or local sports coverage? I live the Charleston, SC market and our local NBC affiliate was the first in our market to produce and display their own original HD content. It was a documentary about...

    HD OTA recorded as SD

    I was watching the Miami/FSU game tonight on ABC-HD (OTA) and while I was live the signal was strong and clear and in brilliant HD. I put the game on pause for a while and when I came back, the game was playing because the 30-minute buffer had run out. So now I am 30 minutes behind live, which...
