RE: DirecTV Genie Smart Search and East/West Coast Channels

The software changed. It did not used to be that way but it is what needs to be done now. Maybe your call to DirecTV will get it back to the way it used to be....you know, the right way! I like things to be RIGHT! Unfortunately causes me much grief on many fronts! I think I will update my input to DirecTV now that I understand the situation. The current behavior makes NO SENSE logically that I can see.

RE: DirecTV Genie Smart Search and East/West Coast Channels

FROM OP Thanks for the informed responses! I checked again and when I do a Smart Search, the results are initially categorized as "Unsorted Episodes." No E/W DNS channels. Indeed as mentioned, if I press left arrow to get to the left menu and select "Upcoming Airings," they all show up - cable channel, local and E/W DNS. What's THAT all about??? :h Maybe there is some logic to it, but I don't get it. Why two sets of results? Anyway, thanks for the tip. Maybe I can manage to get it to do what I want...

DirecTV Genie Smart Search and East/West Coast Channels

I just got done with a chat with DirecTV Support and it seems I am the first to report an issue with the Genie DVR and what they call the "Network Package." For those not familiar, this package is popular for full-timers since they may seldom be in their local zip code and not able to get their local network channels. While both the east and west coast network channels show up in my Guide, if I use the Smart Search feature, programs on any of these channels will not be included in the search results. It will only search cable channels and the network channel in my "local" zip code. I can record the east/west network channels if I hit the record button in the Guide, and that is great, but I have long used and liked the Smart Search feature. The technician was going to put in a trouble ticket, so hopefully it will eventually be fixed. If you are a DirecTV customer with Genie and the Network Package, you may want to see if you are similarly limited. If so, let DirecTV know so maybe the priority will get elevated.

RE: NC Highway Patrol seeking help to identify RV driver

I see the NCHP have issued an update wherein they advise the deceased driver has been identified. Sympathies to his family and friends, but I am a bit taken aback that the paper published his full address. That doesn't seem appropriate from a privacy standpoint.

I don't read ALL CAP rants. Whatever the message was, NOT DELIVERED!

RE: Places in San Diego?

I suspect prices will go up because they just lost one of their nice RV parks to development - Bernardo Shores in Imperial Beach. Hated to see that one go! To get lower prices and more space, you'll likely need to look east and north of the city. One other thing you might try - search from time to time on the San Diego Craigslist site. Under "housing" sometimes private parties will list RV pads for rent on their property. I looked at a couple a few year ago but the locations just did not work for me. Some smaller, off the beaten track RV parks sometimes advertise there as well.

RE: Old tires

For peace of mind and safety, I would change them. Why let a blowout or two ruin a nice travel season? My Dad suffered many blowouts over the years on motorhomes, trailers and boat trailers. He seemed to think as long as the looked OK, no problem. When they would blow out, he would blame the engineers. I've NEVER had a blowout and will not run a tire longer than 10 years.

SOLVED - Stubborn Parking Brake Alarm

I've found many posts in the forums about issues on DPs where the parking brake alarm does not silence even after the air parking brake has been released. Mine was doing this. It would beep for awhile then stop, and maybe start up again for no apparent reason. Others have commented their problem was a defective sensor on the switch. I finally got brave and pulled the panel off the driver side console to diagnose the issue. It quickly became obvious to me that the parking brake switch itself was loose. Tried to tighten, but one of the screws was stripped. So it seems that all the downward pressure to release the parking brake caused the threads to strip and the switch became more and more loose. Turns out the machine screws go all the way through the flange on the switch so I just got some nuts to back them up and got the switch firmly seated. SO glad to have this resolved. I just never noticed that the switch was loose - I don't tend to look at it when I am activating or releasing it. http://www.tlkemp.com/images/brakeswitch.jpg

RE: Drones illegal

They were banned in National Parks last year. http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/20/travel/national-park-service-drone-ban/ And here is an article about things going on in specific states: http://dronelife.com/2014/07/19/state-drone-laws/

RE: All in the same boat?

Or... another way to look at it: It is common practice for Class A drivers to "wave" as they meet on highways, but I don't think those driving a Class A will wave at someone pulling the fanciest of fifth wheels. Also, I suspect there have been times when a CEO out for a ride on his "hog" has exchanged the down-low peace sign with a gang member on his hog, but I bet if they met with the CEO in his Mercedes it would be a different matter. Bottom line, people are pack animals!

RE: All in the same boat?

Maybe the question should be... "did you birth your own motorhome?"

RE: Classic Coach Works

While not directly answering your question, a couple of years ago I used Creative Coach in Lakeland to install my residential fridge, add valances over my aftermarket MCD cockpit shades and also trim out my upgraded HDTVs. Great quality work, but it ain't cheap.
