Is the DVR+ and the VIZIO IR Receiver on the front of the VIZIO TV very close to each other? If so the DVR+ and VISIO are interfering with the IR signals sent to both devices. Suggest moving the...

PIX 11 has been a problem for me. Usually I can get 13.1 and 11.1 with the same quality but lately I can get 13.1 and not 11.1.

They need to put Howdie Doody, Buster Brown, and Captain Kangeroo on Decades. Then I need to get an old Philco or Emerson B&W TV so I can watch these old shows with my grandson. Then he can grow...

Thanks but that is too state of the art to watch Decades TV. I need a black and white set made in the early 50s.

Boo to decades TV. Nothing is worse than watching old grainy black and white shows on a state of the art LED TV. I wish they kept the news programming and did a better job of making it current!

Yes But

The new skyscraper is lower than the ESB physical structure and so it will not be blocking the broadcast masts in the slightest. Could it impact reception? Doubtful but I guess we will have to see....

I own 1 Iview 3500 (Previosly had 2), 2 DTVPAL DVRS and 2 DVR+. The IVIEW 3500 is great for the cost if you only do limited recordings. If you have a need to do lots of recordings and need 2 tuners...

May Not Be Software

I reported this too. I hope it is software and fixable. However I have 2 DVR+ and both have the same software and only one has this issue. So I wonder if there is something going on with hardware?

No quite true. There is a buffer for stopping and starting. A show that is scheduled to end at 0900 does not end at 0900. Most of us pad the start and stop times of our recordings so they may start...

In the example given at 0900 we would try to have 3 tuners engaged when there are only 2 tuners in both the DVR+ and DTVPAL. It is not a device error. It is a human scheduling error. If you ended...

Issues

This is what I want to be addressed before we get into adding Netflix etc. There are many software fixes that can and should be addressed by resources at CM or E* or whoever is programming.

I said this before there are so many options already for people to get these apps that for me it does not make sense for CM to get involved with this. If they were breaking new ground this would be...
