Just got Dish installed last night with the Hopper and this was one of the first things I noticed (mainly in the search). I don't enjoy the thumbnails at all and was looking for a way to switch to a list. Hope this gets added at some point.

REALLY don't like the thumbnails - hard to read and when you land on one, it goes dark making it nearly impossible to see what you've got.
Moving a cursor up and down is better/easier than move up, down, left, and right.
"Wrap around" for cursor moves is inconsistent with the thumbnails.
When a recording is deleted, the other thumbnails sometimes don't refresh into the correct positions requiring and exit from the list and then back again.
PLEASE bring back the list.
Also, it would be nice to have My Recordings and PTAT all in the same folder so I don't have to jump back and forth to choose what to view.

We appreciate the feedback! I have forwarded the requests.

Please forward the request again Raymond... this option is way over due IMO!

Agree! The icons are a bit too busy and sometimes hard to read or decipher on my tiny 60 inch screen. It is worse on my smaller TVs

It's even worse on standard-definition TVs, or it was before I replaced mine, lol. Even had one as small as 13 inches, can you imagine? :hurah:

Another thing I miss from my "D*" days is the ability to select a list of program episodes and be able to play that entire list one after the other with just one click......

I didn't like jumping back and fourth either. I made a record series for our favorite PTAT shows. The PTAT recording will be with your other recordings so you won't have to go to the PTAT folder. The timer will count toward the 96 timer limit but will not be a priority issue.

I Thought about doing that but it eats into your 1GB storage space, no?

I guess it would. We stay caught up on our recordings so storage is no issue. Sure beats having to go into the PTAT folder all the time. I thought it was 2 Therabytes storage!

Old, outdated info. Sizes are wrong and method is different. Search my posts about dissection of QUOTA for the model.

It's 1231GB total for user space. Up to 231GB of which could be occupied by PTAT. If you don't use PTAT, that space is yours to use.
