Bruce, did you try creating a playlist? Offhand, I don't even remember how to do that myself, but IIRC that is a supported feature and it might solve the repeat-play thing.

No.
I see that is possible using Winamp within a PC and also possible within the DVR, but I'm not sure how that can be beneficial. Using the music 'Window mode' seems to work fine, it's just a odd quirk stopping (and repeating) the cut at the bottom of each page.

I did place a 'Autorun' folder in the root of the HDD (actually two, adding a "1" to the folders name to allow it to sit there with no conflict of names and that seems to work ok.

I did connect a portable LCD display to the composite out of the recorder so I can see the menu and folders without turning the TV on. The screen is small for the distance one is sitting, but it's far better that the built in display. wink.gif It's too bad they didn't use a better display with room for more text.

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way. If you like Wi-Fi so much, OTA fits right in. After all, it is wireless.

The CM only does the OTA DVR function. It is not a media player or network media server.

The CM does have VUDU and I believe there are plans for other services. However, all of my TVs and BD players have netflix, youtube, amazon prime, ...... so I don't care about these. I bought the CM for the DVR function only.

I'm using a WD 2T "green" HDD (the one I had in the 6620) in an external USB enclosure. Seems to work just fine with the CM. I don't think the CM is particularly sensitive to a particular HDD.

My plan is to move programs I want to archive to my network server and use the 6620 to play these files.

Also, after the last 2-3yrs with no tech support for the 6620, the CM tech support is a breath of fresh air. I've asked 3-4 questions and they have all been answered next day.

Enjoy it while it lasts. I'm sure Google will make another pointless change to YouTube that will break compatibility again soon enough.

I was thinking of buying another one of these, but do I recall correctly that you can't load the US firmware on a Korean model? The only remaining sellers are shipping these from South Korea, and while they claim that the units have an English interface, I recall somebody saying that he imported one and couldn't change the language. Has anyone else been brave enough to try?

Keep searching on e-bay. Eventually you will get lucky and get one for a decent price.

If you can wait until I check the box contents, you can have mine. Very few hours (like <100) and 500G drive. Just pay for shipping. Sound like a plan? You can PM me if you are interested.

I'm getting ready to sell mine. I bought it a few years ago from Kai. I have to find the box and manual, but I'm sure I have them somewhere. It works fine but there's a few scratches on it. I have the original remote. I never used the dongle (I have a wired network) so I can't say if it works or not. I'll even throw in a 500GB HD (WD Blue) if you want it, but it's 5 years old so not sure how long that will last. The drive bracket is not broken and I will ship the drive (if wanted) removed from the unit so the bracket survives the journey.

I just moved to an area where there's very little TV signal (New Bern NC) so I had to go back to cable. It least it's cheaper than L.A. - by 2/3's!

I'll also be selling a pair of HDHomeRun HDHR3-US dual-tuners and a SimpleTV if anyone is interested in those.

Offers being accepted while I get everything out and packed up. I have a paypal account to accept payment and I'll plan on shipping right after the new year.

PM me to exchange email and more details - thanks.
