I have the 9000 level channels locked on my DVR but find that when I set a recording via remote access it usually goes to the 9000 levels even when I am looking at the lower channel numbers.

So is there a way to lock channels on remote access like I did on the DVR? I cannot find an option to do this anywhere on the remote access page.

They actually have a check box on the remote access signup now that states the channel locks do not apply.

You have to agree before it lets you access for the first time.

This wasn't there when I signed up for it but, I just did it for my mom today.

I have been using remote access since the beta so I did not see this either.

I also see no HD channels on there right now. I made sure I still have HD and platinum on my account but I cannot see them on remote access.

Remote access is a nice feature but it still does not feel "ready for prime time" to me.

I have them locked too, and hidden - and they don't show up in Remote Access. Check again, or hide them first and then check.

That's how it's done. There is no option in the remote access page, it's on your sat receiver. It's probably worth trying now that the remote access is back up and running (for now).
