I'm new to the Hopper/Joey scene. So far, I'm loving almost everything.
However, I can't stand the thumbnail-view when I want to see my
recorded programs. I'd rather see a text list. This can't be that hard
to program, right? (kind of like the list/detail/icon/thumbnail view
option in Windows)

No. No. No.

Icons grouped by title and lists within titles sorted by episode numbers is the best of both worlds.

Yes please make it an option so the customer can choose.
Currently the big Icon folders are forced on us and the text is hard to read on SD TVs.

list/detail/icon/thumbnail view option, with additional options to sort by original air date, date recorded, and episode number for the list within a program folder. While we're asking for pie in the sky, might as well also request the ability to create arbitrarily named folders and transfer/filter programs of your choice into them. For example, one folder called "Crime" which holds all your CSI, Law & Order, NCIS shows regardless of the actual name of the series.

Yes, please make it an option. Some people like the icons and others prefer lists. Also, please provide list option on search results.

I got my Hoppers last March when they first came out. The lack of lists was my first complaint about them. I'd like to see them be an option. My wife likes the icons though.

I would love the option for a list rather than the icons. I also would like to have a usable folder system to organize my shows. The Hopper Joey folder system is totally useless.

I like the thumbs, but an option would be nice for others.

I've never done it but if memory serves you can create your own folders when scheduling events.

Yes, the list options are better as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks for keeping up with customer input.

I wouldn't mind the current icons/thumbnails so much,
but at more than 1/3 are showing the wrong thumbnails.
For example, it's showing NBC pea**** logo for AMC's
"The Walking Dead" on my Hopper.

I would love a list view! My wife was very upset with the icons when I upgraded our 722 to a Hopper.

Sorry... DISH is too busy spending money on "Hot List" and do not have time to really enhance what we have now or fix bugs like favs getting deleted.

DISH needs to listen to their customers and fix the problems first then enhance with new features.

With the new firmware DVR window now has Prime time, Rentals, Deleted Recordings. there is now less room for recordings. We need list view! Not eye candy.
