I agree with allot of the original posters wants however if you wanna see HORRIBLE check out Dish Networks "on demand" interface. Its a list of shows with NO organization what so ever. So directv's is a blessing in comparison.

Wow I guess so. I think D* could improve it more but I wont complain to bad except for I would like to see more channels available on it for downloadable content.

The only concern that I've had was the restricted bandwidth on their end. I haven't tried it in a couple of months but I went to get a HD PPV on demand and by the time it finished downloading I had no time to watch it. The only thing I can suggest is that you never try to watch a PPV while downloading with on demand. Always let it download first then buy it. I ended up paying for a movie I never finished watching. I didn't think about the download time so it was my fault but just a heads up.

Otherwise I think the interface is fine and of course more options will always be better but overall the stuff I've wanted from it have been fine.

I would like to see folders for shows like the DVR, instead of every show being in a list.

I would like to see new shows in HD, instead of wading through the entire listing.

Another thing that is of major concern, most of the broadband providers are starting to implement caps, and this is going to really squash all the good that can come of On-Demand(unless of course you are using their(the cable cos) on-demand). Anti-competitive.

I am not a power DOD user at all. As some people have mentioned, I use it once in a while to download some shows for the kids etc. So I am fine with the current UI.
While we are on the topic of UI and cable companies though, I had posted a while back on how glad I am that I have DirecTV DVR and its UI compared to cable for doing all other functions though....
