Getting tired of setting the DVR on DirecTV? Here's what you can do:
- Hit Menu on your remote and select Smart Search. Then enter the following:
- AALL SABRES CCHAN 638
- Then hit your red button to do a smart search.
- If you've got an HD-DVR at the next window select "High-Definition" and then "All"
- Select Autorecord
You can do a similar search for NBC Sports Netowkr (AALL SABRES CCHAN 220) and your local NBC channel (AALL SABRES CCHAN 11 in my case).
If you're out of market you need to add two more. One for NHL network (ALL SABRES CCHAN 215) and your local RSN for when the Sabres play in your market (AALL SABRES CCHAN 659) in my case.
You also could just combined the NHL Network and NBC Sports Network into one auto record by going "AALL SABRES CCHAN 215 220"
I also do an auto record for the Pregame (AALL PREGAME CCHAN 638). Unfortunately the pre game show isn't tagged as being in high definition so it'll record it both on 638 and 638-1 but that's not a big deal.
