Just for grins has anybody in the Bay area tried the Rovi Corp. headquarters zip code in Santa Clara CA for listings? It's 95050.

Thanks, that's disturbing. I only have one high VHF station in the Bay Area, San Jose. The issues I'm reading about indicate that Rovi is still the same company it's been since it's macrovision copy...

I'm curious about OTA only boxes like mine. My guide goes out to the 28th and still indicates Zap2it as the provider. All the posts on the change on The Green Button seem to be about cable...

That's why I thought they should add firmware support for the SiliconDust OTA tuners. That would get them to tuner parity, unless Echostar has another recorder in the wings with newer hardware...

As long as we're speculating, they might be running into hardware limitations as the DVR+ platform is pushing 3 years old. The Echostar 610R was introduced in 2012 and I believe all they changed were...
