??Question?about?messaging on DVR

I'm sure this has been asked, but I couldn't seem to find any answers..

 

Is there any way to turn OFF the messaging function on the DCT 3412 I ~DVR box?

 

I find the messages annoying and intrusive...  I have no interest in game show network, sports specials, etc...

 

Now if compact was to post a message with a special code to be used on our next payment for a $$ credit, it just be worth my while to have my DVR box spammed with this junk..      I know I'm dreaming. Smiley Wink

 

Ciao, bj

Yes, you can turn the message indicator off which would eliminate the red light (you would still get the messages, you would not get the red light and on-screen envelope indicator).

Go to the Main Menu, then select Setup, then Guide Setup, then page down to page 2 to Message Indicator line. Use the left arrow key to select Off. Enjoy.

I don't know of any way to turn off the messages, but if you cover the light with tape you'll never know they're there.

It'd be nice if the messages were useful. Lately, 90% have been ads for wrestling and sports packages. A recent one also mentioned a Comcast sponsored Playstation game preview at a local mall. Once or twice, they have advertised Comcast jobs.

 

Only a few times have they used it for something truely useful, like channel changes.

Andyross, I agree 100% with you on that...  I just wish that they had a "select all" for the delete function...  But I guess that would be asking for too much..
