I confine our use of wireless to mobile devices like laptops, tablets and cell phones.

Plus it seems like people with the DVR+ who using wifi having issues with the guide. Those that are wired do not.

If users are having Guide problems related to the WIFI connection it's not the DVR+ causing the problem.
I have 4 DVR+ units 2 wired and 2 on WIFI, none of the units have any guide issues.
There is also 2 laptops, 2 desktop computers and 2 TV's using the WIFI without any problems.

I thought one user in the sequence discussing this DID use wired. (Too lazy to go back and find it.)

Yes. There was a mix of wired and wireless people that reported having issues. so its inconclusive as to if you are more likely to have the glitch with wireless connections.

I'm leaning toward getting a dvr+ but one thing I haven't been able to find searching or watching yt vids is does the guide view (2 day or 14 day) have a channel-specific mode? for example arrow to the far left into the channel number box and access a list that shows what's coming up the next few hours/days? or the multi-channel/multi-line grid view is the only view there is?

also in that grid view is there a page down? or to scroll through them it's always arrow/one-at-a-time?

It is 14 days, you can jump ahead a day or more, and you can jump to a channel by channel numbers while in the guide screen. Page down and up plus a jump up or down. Hope this helps.

It sounds like you are looking for a feature similar to that found on my old DirecTV DVR. That was a very handy list for sure.

No, currently the only way to look ahead on a particular channel is to scroll to the right in the grid.

Be seeing you...
