    According to what I see on other sites, the latest national release that is rolling out really helps most people that had speed issues. Hopefully it helps those here with issues.

    I don't know about the DirecTiVos, but the TivoHD got this feature 18 months ago. You just hit PLAY on the group and the group contents are played from start to finish, starting with the oldest recording.

    TiVo added single-click delete (no confirmation) with the CLEAR button at the same time.

    DirecTV TiVos have never had either feature.

    I'm confused by a number of posts to this forum and DBSTalk. I'll routinely see someone mention an "advantage" for the HR2x, and my first thought is, "Huh? My TivoHD got that feature 12/18/24 months ago."

    We see some people who claim to have the feature on their DirecTiVo and others who don't have the slightest clue about it. Did certain DirecTiVos receive software updates that others did not? Do some people with same DirecTiVo model have older software than others? Or are most HR2x users referring to the TiVo software as it existed 1-2 years ago?

    I may be wrong about the "clear" to delete. I don't think I'm wrong about playing multiple shows.

    The stock HR10's that are not blocked from updating will have the same version and functionality that directv sends down, saying there there are hacks out there that can be used to change the functionality and abilities of the software.

    My DirectTivo box has the dual tuners that I can switch back and forth between without actually having to record either one. It's awesome for football games. I can pause one game flip tuners and watch another game. When that game hits a commercial, I pause it, flip tuners back and fast forward thru the commercials of the first game I was watching. Do that thru the entire game, and I watch two football games with no commercials and never record a thing.. That's a huge feature to me that is missing in the Direct DVR. That's the only reason I'm waiting for the new TIVO HD DVR to come out.

    What DirecTV DVR do you have? The HD DVRs (HR20, 21, 22, 23) and R22 SD DVR are currently being updated with a new "DoublePlay" feature that provides dual 90-minute buffers, better than the 30-min buffers provided with the Tivo DVRs. So you don't really need to wait for the new Tivo HD DVR to get this feature, just wait until your HD DVR gets the new software update.

    As mentioned, you probably have it already on your DirecTV DVR and if not will very soon. Hit the down arrow to activate.

    So you are saying the new Directv HD DVRs will have the same features once the updates go out... Where is a good place to look at the features that the Directv HD DVR currently has and will soon have?

    I have the old R10.. I have been holding on to those for along time because at the time the Directv DVR was missing so many features.. I saw thru the years the Directv DVR was getting a lot of the same features so I was glad to see that..

    dbstalk.com is the best reference. For discussion of pending features, join the "Cutting Edge" section of the forum.

    I never tried playing multiple shows on DirecTivo, but "clear" to delete works from "now playing" for quite some time.

    September, 2009. Could have been even worse, 2010-2011, I suppose; except that even after all this time it's an inferior knock-off.

    But I forgot, in this Tivo forum Tivo is inferior and DirecTV is the best of all possible worlds.

    LOL. Yea, works the same and with dual 90 minute buffers. Sounds inferior to me. Tivo coolaid must be good today. Almost as good as the DirecTV coolaid. ;)

    I wish that Tivo and Directv were not so tight lipped about the features and terms of the new boxes. It sure would be nice to know what the extra cost might be and what features will you get for it.

    Well, when it doesn't exist yet and Tivo keeps delaying it, kinda hard to advertise features and what not that they have no idea if Tivo will deliver on or not. ;)
