NEW VIDEO: Here’s where they put the To-Do List

This is a quick and easy video that shows you how to find the To-Do List on DIRECTV’s new Genie menus. While you shouldn’t have to spend a lot of time cleaning up the list, you might want to take a look at it. A lot of people use it as a “custom TV Guide” to see what’s on in the next week, to plan their live TV watching.

If you find that you’re getting a lot of recordings you don’t want, it could be that you are recording a show across “All Channels.” Recording it on a single channel can get rid of a lot of repeats that you don’t want. Luckily, there’s a great tutorial here. It shows you how to use your phone or tablet to create a new recurring recording on only one channel. You can also use the DIRECTV web site to do the same thing.
