I just noticed this morning that you no longer get that annoying banner notification on how to record a program every time you change the channel.

 

I also noticed that ScoreGuide had it's graphics updated, but only for one day. It's back to the low tech look it's had for the past few years. The weirdness continues.

What DVR you talkin' 'bout? Software version? 

 

Are your TV apps HD or SD?

Still seeing it on my HR34-700 (0x6db).

HR-44. Don't know which software version but it was last updated this past Wednesday. And Score Guide is back to the new graphics again. And MLB EI Free Preview is finally on as well.

I've found the TV apps to be so completely useless that I haven't looked at them in months.

Take a look at the ScoreGuide in TV apps. Available from any channel, if your version is HD, it's splendid.

That TV app scoreguide isn't updated in any kind of timely fashion whatsoever.

Anywhere from three innings off to still showing that the game hasn't started, even after the game ends. Plus a lot of times they won't even load because of non-existent network connection errors or whatever. I'm better off letting my MLB At Bat app alert me. That's usually a few seconds behind.

I never found them useful 


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

The Sports app and the Weather app have new life for me, the old SD apps I tested only.

You know, Laxguy, I spoke too soon. I didn't realize they got rid of the "store", and now have only Scoreguide, Weather and the two I'll never use, Social and What's Hot. Yes, they are in HD, and the score guide graphics are the ones I saw the other day that I said were updated. Why I got that the one time, and then went back to the old style, I couldn't tell you. And you're right, the scoreguide updates in real time, shows who's on base, it's great. Sorry I doubted you! peds48, if, like me you haven't even looked at the tv apps for months, take a look now. MUCH better!

 

Although for some reason my weather app defaulted to El Segundo ;)

while they do look better, I stll have no use for them since none of them provide what I need. Even the weather app I find the one on my Smartphone to be much better

Same here, but since I live in N.C. and only see the Yanks when they play the Orioles, the scoreguide comes in handy when I want to check the score real quick and I don't have my phone nearby.

 Glad you took a look!

 

Dunno if you were being ironic or not about El S., but just add your own, and delete the default location.

No, I was serious! I already deleted it and added my town.
