    Well if you did a clear and delete it will loose logos. You can wait till DirecTV does a update, However you prob get gray hair waiting and have a lifetime of off spring. Otherwise if you and got some spunk you can your 90 day directv warranty by taking the hard drive out and loading PTVupgrades get them back plus all kinds of addons. If you get stuck on welcome powering up. Call DTV and be like i am stuck on powering up. You cant say thats a lie cant say that's a lie.

    I am not certain that DirecTV even cares that this is still happening...

    However, I can verify that the last software upgrade to cause favorites to go away. Both of my Series 1 units received the 3.5 software upgrades a week apart. They BOTH lost their favorites after the upgrade.

    It is bad enough that this happens between software upgrades. It is an insult that a software upgrade also causes it.

    Does Directv even still consider this a bug or is it now a feature? I mean this was so obvious, this HAD to happen when they were testing the software upgrade??

    The loosing of the favirotes during the 3.5 upgrade is in the release notes.

    Didn't every software upgrade result in losing favorites?

    Went back and dug up the notes on the release and see that favorites are indeed lost during 3.5.

    I could live with losing them during the upgrade if losing your favorites is fixed going forward (i.e. between software upgrades). But I have not seen that is the case.

    They go away on both of my machines every 3 months or so....That isn't from software upgrades.

    Just had this happen to me today on my DTiVo S1, for the first time ever.
    What a PITA.
