Instead they'll add a feature like TV Apps or Media Share.

Which both suck!

This certainly doesn't explain the colored and dash buttons on the remotes and the absence (or dual function) of some buttons on the RC71. Then there are the double press or hold down remote functions.

The boolean search is pretty inscrutable for all but a relatively small part of the population.

Autotune isn't a power user function but it can be pretty handy and it seems self-evident as to what it does.

Colored buttons age gone now with the exception of red

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.

You are being kind about the media share part.

Are you just referring to the RC71 remote?  Because I still use all 4 colored buttons on my remotes for my HR2x's.  Red to delete shows, etc...yellow for guide options, green for bookmarks in recordings, blue for mini guide.....

Yes, and it seems that is where DirecTV  is going. even the GUI was updated to exclude those button, while the old ones  still work though

How is the responsiveness? On Demand I have seen from cable companies (and used) is slow to respond.

 

Spent the afternoon at my son's apartment and had a chance to put the Cablevision cloud dvr through its paces. In terms of the GUI and trickplay responsiveness, it felt exactly like a Genie client, so not bad. Excellent HD PQ as well. I was sitting about 6' away from a 50" plasma.

Only on the Genies.

Its a shame really, they could have done so much more with those color buttons.
