Beep on delete ??

All of a sudden today, I started getting a beep when deleting programs. It happens whether alerts are enabled or not. I don't even think the DVR reset itself. Is this something new, or am I the only one who never noticed this?

EDIT: skip these next two "meatballs" they're stuck in the kitchen. Anyone notice this issue before

It means the Router needs an oil change.
Use only Olive or Canola.

Is that Extra Virgin Olive?

Does it beep through the DVR or through the TV(or surround sound) speakers?

The beep is through the TV or surround speakers. The beep is for changes within the DVR menu. Deleting shows, deleting history, removing shows from series etc. It is positive feedback for an action taken. I like it!!

You can enable or disable the beeps in the settings menu under "audio alerts".

Seems like such a useless feature. I can't think of any reason why I (or anyone) would need an audible confirmation of a program being deleted.

The beep also alerts yout to program reminders and other things requiring user interaction, like two scheduled recordings about to begin while watching a third. I find this audio prompt useful since occasionally I'm not watching the TV (but listening with my back turned doing something else).

Same result in Bordentown NJ. Seems to have begun about a week ago. Have not tried the "audio alert disable" just yet. There was surely a firmware change somewhere along the line, no?

If you are using the audio alert, you need to check this thread:
»5.1 Audio no longer shows on some channels

Wow.... Major fail in the "acceptance testing" side. Hate to be that guy. (assuming VZ actually tests these things beforehand).

Am I missing something, or has VZ disabled the "audio alerts" feature once again?

The audio alerts are disrupting the Digital Dobly signal to our AVRs so we have intentionally disabled them. We prefer to have the DD signal than the beeps. I don't know if Verizon even knows or cares about the issue. No one ever mentioned that Verzion deactivated this feature.

Thanks to (I guess) our complaints...this new "feature" has been removed as mysteriously as it was added. I actually liked the alert sound when a message came up, so left it enabled...and it has stopped working just as subtly as it started working.

yeah, I was just getting used to beep reminders. It's most likely been re-disabled because of it's effects on 5.1 Audio, etc....

Interesting. What boxes are you saying it's working on?
I've done both soft + hard resets, and there is no audio alert on any function.. I know we're in the same DAC / VHO..

Interesting.... I have two 7232's. On one alerts are disabled because I was having the 5.1 issue. On the other, alerts are not disabled and as of two minutes ago the feature is working.

I just re-enabled alerts on the box with the 5.1 surround and the alerts that were working yesterday are not working now. Like you Miata, the reset does not work.

My guess is that the feature has been removed. If I do a reset on the box where it is working, I will lose the feature.
