    Hopper system with 3 Joeys and a sling.


    Every time the DVR records something, whether I am watching it or not......when I go to the DVR to watch the show, it displays as 100% viewed.

    I have accidently deleted shows based on this, because that is how I keep track of whether I have watched something or not. I have reset the receiver. Any other ideas?

    This is 100% viewed bug was introduced recently, possibly with S335. We have to assume they will get around to it.

    DIRT asked people who had the problem to report it to them. They then said they had enough reports. I've had the same problem. I now don't delete anything till after I have started it over and made sure that I've already watched it.

    You know the most annoying thing? Sometimes you start a show, and it immediately ends. You have to go back to DVR, and start it over. Not detrimental, but definitely annoying.

    It would be nicer if it returned you to where it entered the latest command and not to the start of some outer level.
    They are getting there on some commands/tiles on the Hopper.

    Hear hear! My VIP receivers used to work that way. :( No longer; it makes no sense; it's a PITA. Why oh why did Dish do this?

    DIRT where are you?! Called customer service, I am on the phone with them now and literally going to go through the phone with these jackasses who have no clue what a joey is.

    What would you like DIRT to do? It is a known bug, and not that fatal....

    Just log my account as affected by this.

    Man, did I get a doozy on the phone tonight. Five people before anyone understood what was going on and willing to just log it on the account.
