I think that most expected the HDGUI to be an improvement in performance since that was one of the 'benefits' we kept reading about here. But that didn't happen. And some of us were hoping that the guide would go to 3 hours instead of the current 1.5 hours. That didn't happen either. What we got, or let me say what us HR24 guys got, was a slower speed of operation, remote response issues we didn't have before the HDGUI, and essentially the old SDGUI in new clothes with no real benefit. HDGUI, SDGUI, text list - I don't care as long as it works quickly and pays attention to the remote. I've said before that I would trade every single TVApp, Pandora and YouTube for a proper operating HR. Time spent making those very trivial things work could have been much better spent on getting the HDGUI right to begin with!
