    I don't mind the Deleted Recordings one because it is at the end. But is there any way to put the Rentals one at the end or get rid of it (we don't rent movies from Dish)? Dish should be smart enough to know if there are no rentals then don't display it at all!

    Absolutely!!! I'm new to Dish, and was hoping to find an option to switch to a list.

    Use folders by name, sorted by DVR date (or alpha) and each icon will lead to a list, which you can sort by episode number. You will get used to it quickly and never want to go back. A list would typically show about the same number of items as are shown with the icons - no gain there.

    I would like the ability to rename movies as I did before. I used to rename movies that I recorded from Cinemax with the name "Rawhide". (My wife doesn't watch westerns.) Now I can't do that.

    Thanks. That's the way I have it now. I would still prefer a list, and I don't see any reason why that couldn't be another option.

    Just got Dish installed last night with the Hopper and this was one of the first things I noticed (mainly in the search). I don't enjoy the thumbnails at all and was looking for a way to switch to a list. Hope this gets added at some point.

    REALLY don't like the thumbnails - hard to read and when you land on one, it goes dark making it nearly impossible to see what you've got.
    Moving a cursor up and down is better/easier than move up, down, left, and right.
    "Wrap around" for cursor moves is inconsistent with the thumbnails.
    When a recording is deleted, the other thumbnails sometimes don't refresh into the correct positions requiring and exit from the list and then back again.
    PLEASE bring back the list.
    Also, it would be nice to have My Recordings and PTAT all in the same folder so I don't have to jump back and forth to choose what to view.

    It would be nice to have an option for those who prefer a list of shows/events.

    Agree! The icons are a bit too busy and sometimes hard to read or decipher on my tiny 60 inch screen. It is worse on my smaller TVs

    I'm often using 32" TV, you could imagine how bad is the icon's reading ....

    It's even worse on standard-definition TVs, or it was before I replaced mine, lol. Even had one as small as 13 inches, can you imagine? :hurah:

    I don't see the problem. They are easy to read on my 21" kitchen TV.

    Another thing I miss from my "D*" days is the ability to select a list of program episodes and be able to play that entire list one after the other with just one click......

    O'Fallon,...
    I didn't like jumping back and fourth either. I made a record series for our favorite PTAT shows. The PTAT recording will be with your other recordings so you won't have to go to the PTAT folder. The timer will count toward the 96 timer limit but will not be a priority issue.
