Is there any way to disable the 'update' to search typing? What a horrible retrograde dis-improvement.

Are you talking about the texting style of entry. If so you can use the old method of input with the cursor keys or the new style, both will work. When I tried it, I was still faster with the old method and will probably stick with it.

Oh that's good. It hasn't downloaded to my 630 yet so I haven't tried it. My 605 has it.

My 630 was targeted today so I set it to download before I went back to work. So far, I don't have the gold free preview bars, but I guess that might come with the daily guide update. I also noted a "PPV Now" feature which seems pretty interesting. It doesn't appear to have formally launched yet. A taste of On Demand for those without internet connections to their box (and a throwback to TopUp TV in the UK in their later incarnation : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Up...premium_sports)

50 minutes for the download not counting receiver time (maybe 3 more minutes at the start and end) and reloading the program guide (maybe 15 minutes). So count 70+ minutes of lost recording time for the Australian Open Tennis with Milos Raonic!

Any body have a problem with the channel guide not loading after last nights upgrade?
I did a refresh and the guide loaded.

Unhappy Huge glitch!!

All of our previous recordings are 'broken' and we can't record anything new. Just shows 0.
On hold for a real person now...
I have a terrible feeling they are just going to tell us we need a new pvr, but that obviously isn't the issue. Anyone else having the same issue?

Hmmmmm....multi delete......that new option in the delete prompt scares me. What happens when the laggy remote over steps to it as you quickly click ok? I sure hope another prompt comes up. Until I know for sure I'm not going to be the guinea pig.

Wifey really likes the feature to easily extend recording time.

End 1 minute Early

I hoped that recording for individual events could be set to END a little early in the case of THREE events overlapping by that last minute of one of the two shows.

Usually the end of a show is just a teaser for the episode next week and some ads, the beginning of shows sometimes actually starts (no ads) right on time.

I know that I could use the manual timer for this, but a manual timer does not list the name of shows in the PVR list (recorded shows).

My 630 has the new software update, but my 605 has not be updated. I know that SD is rolling out updates over time. I guessed that both receivers on my account would be done at the same time.

How long should I wait before I call Shaw to ask about it?

RuralRouter: don't lose sleep over it. the update doesn't do much of anything for the 605. maybe if they somehow activated the eSata port?
sawguyg and RuralRouter like this.

I find that this update made the recceiver feel more responsive. The remote keys finally work the first time. Back and forward work on queue...
I wish deleting shows was faster.

Where can I find the PPV now?
