H-20 AutoTune Feature

Just got the new H-20. Picture is great in both SD and HD. But I do a lot of recording with my DVR and went to use the Autotune feature, why don't they just call it a timer like on the old units, and it doesn't work!! I try the manual method and through the guide and either way once the program time has passed and you go to the history section is shows the program as canceled. I called D* and they say they have started a ticket on it but no one can tell me what is up. Is this a software bug? :mad: How could they ship a product that doesn't have a working timer? Anyone else have this problem? Please help.

Thanks,
Mark.

My H20 autotune works but I haven't used it with a DVR. There is a confirmation on the TV that informs the viewer that the channel is about to change.

What DVR are you using? Does it record Hi-Def?

It's a Pioneer with 80gig (35 hours in SP). As far as I know only the Tivo's record in HD, so I'm told. Mine is like a vhs player, record by programming it and not tied to paying for a program guide and big brother watching you and suggesting what to watch, and records in 480, I think, maybe 525 max. I does record in widescreen, just not high-def.

Has no one else had the problem with the Autotune? I find it hard to believe it's an isolated problem with just my unit. Any help is appreciated.

Mark.

That's normal. The unit has to be ON to function. Notice you are given a chance to confirm or stop the change, thus necessitating the unit to be ON.
