True; it's hardly a major complaint. Just one of those little "it'd be better if ..." things.

No, at least not at this time. (Of course you could set up a button on a learning remote with macros to do this, but you can't program the DVR+ to do it.)

I agree that menu is rather annoying,...

Not just ours: every existing tuner will become obsolete. It'll basically be a rerun of the analog-to-digital transition, only with far less spectrum available. (Last time there was plenty of room to...

Actually I was referring to the DVR that CM sold under a very similar part number (CM-7000Pal). But yes, CECBs like the CM-7000 (without the "Pal") probably use remote codes that work.

I'm on 132R and my front-panel power button works fine.

Are there DVR+'s shipping with 134R now, or was that just a typo? The CM firmware page still lists 132R as the current version.

Some folks have successfully controlled the iView from an XBox One, but I don't know of anyone who's controlled it from a TiVo. You should probably see if your TiVo lists the iView in its remote...

Possibly a mistake in the remote codes database for the DVR+? The Mute button should be set to the mute function on your TV or AVR, not to any DVR+ function, so the DVR+ shouldn't do anything at all...

Two words: Focus group. :rolleyes:

Seriously, I'd suggest switching to a universal remote. Besides the Harmony 350 just mentioned, several learning remotes have been discussed here.

With most thumb drives, write speeds are so much slower than read speeds that you have to buy a USB 3.0 thumb drive to get a decent write speed even when plugged into a USB 2.0 port. That's why I...

Create "hidden" no longer

As of 2/1, Create is now showing up everywhere I couldn't get it before. Looks like they finally flipped off the "hidden" flag.

Also, Rovi finally dropped the silly "off-air" listing, so I have...

If you prefer to keep your HDD inside the box, you can still save a lot of heat by replacing it with a 2.5" HDD and a 3.5" mounting bracket. Just make sure the bracket lets the cables reach; some...

We appreciate the attempt anyhow. Since KVFW's transmitter is working, I'm wondering if the hold-up is Luken's receiving equipment.

IIRC what P Smith did was more involved than just opening the case and plugging in a drive. There were several missing parts on the 16GB models which he had to add first.
