From January 25 through February 5, 2016 we will be updating the software on all HDDSR 600, HDDSR 605 and HDPVR 630 receivers. This update, with current version 50.25, will enhance your HD guide experience.
Version 50.25 - January 2016
Channels on Free Preview will now be indicated by gold coloured bars in the Guide. When tuning in, you'll also be alerted to the preview.
If you prefer, it's now possible to use the number keys on the remote to navigate the on-screen keyboard. You can also use FFWD and RRWD for space and backspace, or SKIP BACK to clear your entry.
We've reorganized the Preferences screen and added new options.
New headers have been added and certain options rearranged to make them easier to find. Any customizations will be retained when this update is installed.
You can choose the type of notifications that are displayed, including turning them off completely. This is customized on a per-user basis.
It's now possible to adjust when alerts (for dual recordings or auto-tunes) appear. The default is still 2 minutes prior.
When setting a recording for a live program you will now be asked if you want to add extra time to the end of the recording, in case it runs past the scheduled end.
When deleting a recording, your HDPVR 630 will now ask if you want to enter "Multi-delete" mode. When you do, simply use the EENTER key to check as many recordings as you want, and press the C button. After confirming, the checked recordings will be deleted all at once.
Additional enhancements include:
* Channel availability varies by market. The Shaw Direct HD Guide requires an HDDSR 600, HDDSR 605, or HDPVR 630 receiver. PVR features are only available on HDPVR 630. High speed internet and a connection between your home router and 600 series receivers are required to access Shaw Direct On Demand.
