    Dish network could you put the original air date of a program on the guide screen when a show is highlighted instead of having to push info on every show? If its new its not an issue naturally but otherwise that would be nice!

    Although I hated the EPG on my 722 and the lack of accurate information, one of the main reasons for moving the the HwS, I never remember "wanting" when I selected a program and got what we did in the header as program info when doing so. Now in my HwS I spend more time investigating programs than watching them. There could be way more and better formatted information in the EPG header. Dates would be a big help and a good start. They just need to dump the "trying to look cute" and make it useful and "cute".

    And a side note: I saw a DISH commercial that was (c) 2012 and the Hopper EPG was black with white text. So much better. I was hoping that it was a sign of things to come, but no such luck. So far . . .

    Same with the time it aired. That I am finding one really needs to dig for. Especially if there is the same show at different times. Like news programs.

    Its slow now too when you push info. Takes forever to switch screens.
