One of the things I am just puzzled with, is why such a new PVR has no internet enabled scheduling feature. I have a friend who lives in Kansas, who has had TIVO for a long time, at least 5 years ago he told me he could be at work and program his PVR from his computer. He simply logs in, with username and password, and could tell his PVR to tape something later that day while he was at work, because he had forgotten to program it before he left for work.
Seriously, why are we always 10 years behind the States in terms of technology in some areas, it's just sad
As for the black screen I commented on a few days ago on my 630, I was talking to a friend of mine, and this happened to him last week, the exact same problem.
Problem in a nutshell: - you are watching TV with your 630, and the TV screen suddenly just go black ( blank ) nothing, like you lost the sat. signal, however the box indicates everything is fine. The only solution is to reset the box, either by pressing the button on the front and holding for 10 seconds, or unplugging the 630 unit.
Update: - I've now got a tiny red LED ( light ) that appears on my 630, this started happening this morning.
The tiny red light is in the clock area, just above the 3rd digit. For example right now it's 11:48 am, and that little red light is showing up at the upper right area where the "4" appears. I've never seen this before, and.... the TV channel is still showing on my TV ( no pixelation, just clear TV signal )
Very strange ?
