I just spent the last hour trying to find instructions on how to sort the DVR list, and I can't find anything (at least not with obvious search parameters) in the forum nor is it documented in the manual. I thought it might be nice to post all of these undocumented features in one place.
These are the ones I'm aware of:
Skip Forward/Backward in IPG jumps forward or backward a day.
Hidden menu at 6-4-9-7-7
Hidden menu at 6-4-9-8-8
Some of these maybe code specific, like the Skip Forward/Backward which was introduced in BC.
for the 530 ,, just hit opt, 6,4,9,7,7,1 then if you are at "diagnostics" use left or right to get to screen F, hit info once and its a guide flush , twice reloads channel map.... this seems to work on most recievers for guide flush ,,,,, if you surf around in diagnostics to find cookies ,,,,you will end up calling SC. for a factory reset,,,I wont even tell you what screen that was in,,,,,,
Here's a couple:
You spotted the 24 guide jumps, now try the play and pause.
One takes you to 299 or 298 if you've set French and the other takes your guide to the current time & channel, a home position if you will.
This might be a bug, but I think it's a feature:
To look back in time in the guide to see what you just missed, find a 1/2 or 1 hour grid cell in the 2nd or 3rd slot overtop of a program the extends earlier in time.
Now shift the focus from the slot 2/3 cell down into the long cell below it and now you can navigate a few hours earlier in time.
