A few days ago I dropped DirecTV and signed up with Mediacom Cable in south Santa Rosa county in the panhandle of Florida. They supplied me with 2 identical DVR's - the TDC779X. I have some questions about these boxes that I did not see the answer to in the 29 pages of postings that I read, which btw was a chore in itself.
My first question is:
Does this model of receiver have a way to organize your list of dvr recordings? Having been with DirecTV for the past 6 years and owning my own Samsung TIVO boxes, I got used to the "folders" feature. On the TDC779X I see that you can sort your recordings by date, title, or channel but thats not what I'm referring to.
This picture shows exactly what I mean.
As is, the way the TDC779X displays your recordings is very unorganized. For example, if I had 10 episodes of Naked Science they're all gonna be displayed in the same list as everything else.
My second question is:
When connecting the HDMI output on my living room box to my Panasonic TH-50PX60X I get no picture or sound although the receiver says it is connected (see pics below). I've changed the TV's aspect and nothing. I've used a second HDMI cable and still nothing. So I decided to test this out with my bedroom box and everything works fine, even with both cables and all TV aspects. Is it possible that my living room box is bad? The same living room box also seems to turn itself off and on (reboot?) at random several times a day. The pictures below pertain to my HDMI problem.

Sorry for all the pictures. I wanted to post links to the pics but since I don't have more than 3 postings it wouldn't let me. I'm new here and this is my first post. This is a great forum. I have looked at it over the years when I have had problems and/or curiosity about electronics that I have owned.
