    Don't know why, but the HR34 HDGUI seems to have repeated all the same mistakes that were in the first release of the Hx2x HDGUi that had to be quickly fixed -- like the overly large black time banner and the search character count reduced from 50 characters to just 30.

    We saw that in your post from 2 minutes ago... You have to give the unit time to rebuild all the data.

    ok finally got past ok. The text looks terrible. Blurry, missing pixels, really poor quality for "HD"

    Scrolling through the guide is super fast. Response times are fine.

    The "QuickTune" text is fine, so that must be an image, whereas the other text, you can tell when vertical strokes land on an odd pixel and render half-width strokes.

    Then why would you expect it to look exactly the same? Each input on a TV can have completely separate contrast, brightness, sharpness, etc. And if it's on a completely different TV it will be more different still.

    One of my TVs looks darker than the other. And another input on the same TV is set for movies so it's even darker still.

    As a DirecTV installer, I have seen this guide more than you can imagine. Im telling you it isn't as clear or as crisp as it should be and I dont seem to be the only person who thinks so.
