    From what I read on the D* site, that with a mix of HD and SD receivers, only the HD DVRs will have the new HDGUI and that the old SD DVRs will have the "same" GUI. Is this correct? What do they mean by "same"?

    What about the R22(with HD), which I have two of these, will they have the new or old GUI?


    Now I see that all the mention of "speed" increase is regarding the navigating of the new GUI, will the changing of channels speed also increase or will that stay the same?

    I'll definitely echo that sentiment.

    on a related note, First Looks are always fun to go back and read when you are bored. Interesting to see what each piece of equipment had as a feature at the time that was enhanced later on (3X FF only on the HR20 and 4X added to the software later, for example)

    There is no doubt that this roll out will be one of the longest ever!

    Why does everyone seem to think Dtv would ever let the customer customize any. of the information? It's a guide to let you know what's on... not a user interface. Just an informational page. This will be so much nicer than the old guide. Ideas and suggestions are fine, but let's keep the guide left to show information. Too many people can barely get their tv on the right input or resolutions. We all are for improvements, but one step at a time, so everyone can catch up with changes.

    The interface currently allows for users selecting whether or not to show recording tips; what screen the GUIDE button displays first; whether or not to display scrolling effects; how quickly the info banner disappears; whether or not to display caller ID messages; what channels to place into the Quick Tune grid; what channels to place in favorite lists; what names to give the favorite lists; what names to give the receivers; whether or not to enable MRV and remote playlist visibility and deletion ...

    So ... why is an option to control the number of lines on a GUIDE or the number of hours on the GUIDE out of the questions?

    If you like the current appearance, the OPTION is yours to keep it. That's what is great about options... the choice is yours.

    Yeah I know Comcast (and other iGuide cable ops) let's you choose a few things:
    1. Guide color scheme
    2. Double line or single line guide (single gets more channels at once)
    3. Two or three channels on the mini guide

    However for the last 10 years, I-guide is relatively unchanged in looks.
