On PTAT icon banner, with no folders, i see date, channel, but not time. With folders by network, banner shows length and origninal air date. And the icons on "my recordings" are completely different. Info displayed is variable depending on where you are. (lots of different people working on the software)
In context when you are looking "by network" you know what channel the show was recorded on (your designated affiliate). Show name, episode title, length and original air date plus show genre and description.
Folders by title adds the channel (which was assumed "by network") and rating.
Folders by genre is weird at the folder level ... point to a genre and the episode title and information for the latest show in that genre are shown. But once the folder is opened everything is there except rating.
No folders is same info as "by title" (with rating) but no grouping.
I don't believe different people are working on the different viewing options ... they just show in different context.
