Also, why would one really want to bring up the guide/menu UI while dubbing a program onto a recordable DVD anyway?
It's not about bringing up the guide. You get the message whenever you try to view any content on the DTV DVR until change the output to SD.
And there lis the issue, for me. No, of course I don't want to record the guide, or any of the GUI graphics for that matter. Wehn I record a program, all I want is the program content. (I also don't want the bugs, snipes, and other clutter, but that is another discussion altogether!
) If that nasty "your television or cabling is not HD" message could be turned off, with a menu option say, it would suit me just fine having the HD outputs contain the GUI graphics, and the SD outputs just the video information for recording purposes. I never use the SD outputs for any other purpose. Please, give us the option to turn off that nasty message.
