I can make points to agree and disagree with this idea. One if the show doesn't have a air date listed then every time the show is on you'd have to ok the recording or miss it. Like I record Huckabee and its on Saturday at 8pm. It replays like 6 times over weekend the same show. So this would be nice to reduce it trying to record all 6 shows like it currently does now.

But there is a downside to that....I have both D* and E*. On my E* 211k I record TMZ (yeah I know...). Its on at 6 at night, 10:35 at night and 1PM the next day. With the playoffs on Fox the guide kept saying it would record at 10:35 but with the games running long it records wrong. So if I set a timer for 1:00 the next day it shows as skipped and I have to force it to record. Even if I delete the timer for tonight at 10:35 (like I did) and set it for tomorrow it shows skipped and says "duplicate recording". Takes more steps to unskip it
That is the one big advantage of setting a recording on Directv
one push of record for one time
two for series
With Dish ANY timer it kicks you to a second screen where you have to select what type of recording it is (all, new, one time, weekly, etc). This really sucks for one time recordings.
Just a curious question, why both Echo* & Direct? That seems like a lot of channel duplication. Sounds cool, but, my wife would never let me get away with that! I already have Apple TV and Roku along with my DirecTv......
