    I kind of miss the blue and yellow colors compared to the new white background for the menus and guides. Not a big deal but maybe we could have an option to change our color schemes one day. I guess I'm a pretty happy customer since that's all I have to complain about!! Keep up the good work Directv!

    No, I don't prefer the old color scheme. I wish we could adjust fonts in the Guide. (Can't read the program detail from the bed:) )

    I had forgotten what they even looked like until it was mentioned.

    I had the new white GUI on my HR20 for a very long time before my mother's R15 was finally upgraded from the blue/yellow interface, so I was always comparing the two interfaces whenever I visited her and I hated looking at the blue and yellow. I hated it so much, in fact, I bought her an LCD HD TV and helped her call DIRECTV to upgrade to an HR20 and the new white GUI. A few weeks later the R15 received the new GUI, and now all is right in the world. :)i

    Just wish that they would get the new gui out to all models. Getting tired of customers going, why is this one like....:(

    A couple things I would really like to see for a spring 08 refresh.

    Colored backgrounds for sports (green), movies (red), etc.
    Options to resize the guide/menus according to the size of your screen (user selectable).
    Font types for the types would be nice as well.

    At first I thought the new GUI looked kinda fruity, but I got used to it. I've got a D10 standard receiver in the kitchen and now when I turn it on and see the old colors...I think the thing is 10 years old!

    I prefer the white GUI much better than the old GUI.

    I can't wait for the H20 to receive the white GUI. That is the only unit I have that does not have it and I hate the way it looks.

    Not terribly invested either way but the warmer, lighter colors are more contemporary in my opinion.

    Talk about terrible GUI colors...I've got an RCA receiver at the bottom of a closet somewhere that only offered green, dark blue and purple color schemes. Ugh. ;)

    I think that's the receiver I just retired. Those colors were awful.

    Are you talking about the small boxes that had the flat, wide black remotes?

    I have a couple of those!
