anybody else prefers a list of programs under DVR? (instead of thumbnails)

    He's probably talking about things like the Timers list or the Daily Schedule... He's right, those list-view areas don't display more events as it turns out than do the thumbnail mode of the Hopper and 922 receivers.

    Possibly. I know at first with my 922 I missed the list... but that went away pretty fast once I realized that I was actually seeing more movies on the screen at a time! The only drawback (and I gather the Hopper has this too) is whenever a thumbnail disappears (especially on EHD events) and then it just looks ugly.

    If you group by title, and click on an icon you will see a LIST of episodes. Huh???

    As a dish user for over a decade, this is also one of my most wanted changes, The code is already written for the 722 type display, so it shouldn't be too much to have an option to select between the 2 modes. Question is , did this request make it onto the the update list for an upcoming release, can you give a status as to whether this is even being considered. The other request I would have is to enable blue tooth keyboard, using the onscreen keyboard is just cumbersome and in this day and age should be able to control the hopper using your android phone, and / or a blue tooth keyboard.

    you coud use USB stick (2.4 GHz) to utilize Adesso keyboard (see my thread about the keyboard); SW support of the type is already done for 922/813/913 models ( perhaps and other)

    IIRC, my 722k was able to only list 6 recordings at a time, whereas the icon has 2 rows of 5 which allows the listing of the 9 most recent recordings plus PTAT.

    I think I prefer the icons, but a choice would be OK.
