TVs, VCRs, DVD players, Home Theater systems and more.

Direct TV has a lot of unresolved software issues

We have their newest DVR. We have a situation where the same show appears on two different stations, one in Hi def and the other in "stretched" SD.

We want to record a series, the entire season, We go set the recording on the HD channel (hit red button once), it works. The yellow icon shows

When we set it to record the entire series (hit red button twice), the yellow icon goes to the SD channel!

This only happens when a show is in two channels. If it's only on one channel, no problem.

Call support and they say it doesn't happen. They say it's fixed on the latest release. When a tech was here, he said the new box is buggy.
