Weird thing happened when I went to the guide. . .

    Anyone ever seen their guide do this?

    I like it! I wouldn't mind it doing it full time, instead of just randomly.

    This is an HR20-700. Had it since August 06.

    Both my HR20-100 and HR22-100 have done this. Occurs every now and then and has happened while showing the guide and the playlist.

    I've seen it. Personally, I wish I could set it to be this way all the time. Obviously not exactly like that but I would like to be able to have transparent menus with fullscreen programming in the background.

    It has happened 3 or 4 times on my HR20-100, and it quickly vanished once I made an exit. I certainly don't like it...

    I've also seen this on my HR20-700. A weird glitch.

    My HR20-700 has done this countless times, and has been doing it a lot as of late. I dont like it much. When it does it, I can scroll through the guide like normal, but it wont let me select a station, so I have to exit out and reload the guide.

    I like when that happens, should be an option. Then an option for opacity. Like the old days.

    I've noticed it twice since the latest firmware update. Never noticed it before, though.

    it has happened to our HR21-200 but instead of transparent, everything turns black in the background. Really freaked out my 7 year old once.

    Yeah, I think you're right on that. I too, don't remember it happening before the last upgrade.

    Some of you like this glitch!? Its not normal plus the fact as a poster mentioned you can scroll the guide but are unable to select a channel. And then having to reload the guide? Are you kidding? I absolutely don't like it.

    it's happened to me, too, on my HR21 after the last update. I do wish menu transparency was an option.
