More channels and more hours in the guide.
Can I count that as one thing?
The guide is faster, now make the rest faster. Faster channel changes. Directv has the slowest channel changes.
Quit Looking at Threads criticizing the New HDUI!!! :lol:
+1000. DITTO!!!! :hurah:
Press and hold exit, wish granted. :icon_cool
Same here.........."to do list"!!!
One button push to the TODO List
A one button option to go back to the SD UI.
Like it was said before Press and hold exit. I have an older TV and when I turn it on a box comes up that says to press and hold exit
UNIFIED To Do list!
As to changing size, columns, rows, time, etc. of The Guide, use a laptop, iPad or another monitor dedicated to the Guide! Well, you could....
Make the blue key = "To Do List" instead of being a mini guide. Who cares about that function anyway? It is too many clicks to get to the "To Do List" now
Control the amount of transparency for the progress and channel bars.
Add YouTube Search to the Extra Menu.
Add a half hour more to the guide.
Speed up the HR20-700 please. I know its old, but its a great workhorse with OTA.
I am very much convinced the HDUI slowed this puppy down. Others have stated it too.
While I am +1 :up: for a 1-button To Do List, my most-wanted change would be to remove the PIG (and its accompanying annoyingly-unwanted audio). This would also allow a couple more channels per page.
Rather than customizable, make this and other aspects of the GUI smart enough to customize themselves according to how the user actually uses the GUI. IOW, have it learn what the users preferences are and make them the ones that are the most available. For instance, if you go to the history a lot, make that the top choice in that menu, and if you go to the TDL a lot, make that the top choice in that menu, all dynamically based on the button-press history of that particular box. That way everyone wins, and conflicting goals can be met for everyone, including those that have conflicting preferences (unless they share the box, that is, and even that could be handled by using separate accounts on the same box).
Move the My Directtv to the bottom and the recording to the top. It should be My recording. My Directtv has nothing to do with me.
OK, I know I am cheating and I get only one, but it sure would be nice if in the play list when you are on or in a folder, that they allow the green button (which is otherwise not available at that time) to be used to jump to the next ep in the record order. Currently you have to page down, and sometimes down again, down again, down again, down again, down again, down again, down again, down again, down again, to get to the last event in the folder, which is typically the next event in that folder we want to watch next. Am I right, people?
Label it "oldest in group" or "last in folder" or "next in chrono order" or whatever works, as long as that is what it does.
That and a Tivo-like back door to clear the time bar in half a second are very near the top of my list. (sorry, just had to shoehorn one more in there)
That Icon should be broken down into its pieces.
In the Playlist, shows that have been previously viewed are to dark to read on all TV's. I can read them from 14' on my 70", but not at 20' on my 46". They are just too dark to read against the black background. I understand wanting to differentiate them, but there has to be a better way.
There's too many to come up with just one.
I would allow the UI to read screen size information from the tv and optionally use that to size the fonts up or down. No reason someone with a 70" tv should suffer because the menus would be illegible on a 20" tv.
