    Love that they added Pandora.

    DIRECTV, keep of the great work added new functionality to existing hardware, always nice to get something new without having to replace set top boxes.

    I love that DirecTV is always looking for ways to add value to the service and Pandora is a nice feature to have included.

    I'm glad that the progress bar is back to it's original size.

    Would love a little more clarity on where the improvement is in the User Inteface though ... ;)

    Yep, based on feedback from users, the progress bar was changed among one or two other things like the 50 character search limit is reported to be back.

    I get the warm and fuzzies (I'm being sincere here) when a big corporation actually listens to, and makes changes based on its user's feedback.

    It seems so rare nowadays.

    PIG Functionality wasn't removed... The ability to use trickplay on the PIG was. HUGE difference dude.

    If enough users give feedback that they don't like that PIG trickplay functions were removed they may be restored.

    As far as the Energy Star optimizations, they don't save you a darn thing. All it does is puts the unit in standby after 4 hours of no activity.

    That usually is the case but this change was made based on the new remotes. I'm pretty sure they won't be going back on this one since some of the remotes are already out in the wild.

    What about the new remotes requires this removal, is there a change to button location or operation that causes this to be needed?

    This is an assumption at this point in time really. Because the remotes your talking about are the ones they are using only for RVU client tv's thus far....
    Haven't seen mention of that remote style going to take over all other models for main receivers yet....

    If your TV can go into power save when it detects no input signal from the box, that can save some. I think that's where they're going with this.

    Wasn't? You now have zero control over the PIG. Nothing - Nadda - Not one damn thing!

    Because of a remote? Do you know how dumb that sounds?

    The way I read the post was if PIG functionality was removed that would mean the PIG is completely removed from the system. Where as here just trickplay was disabled while in the PIG.

    Try changing the PIG channel from any screen but the Guide.

    I could accept that change... There have been times I wanted to key in a channel in the guide to jump to the listings for that channel. However due to the fact the PIG was highlighted the DVR changed channels causing the buffer to be lost.
