    It's still two presses, albeit two different buttons.

    BTW, I just tried the dash dash and it still worked.

    Change the "deathly hallows" look of the new GUI. It' sooooo dark.

    I second this feature as you can already do that if you have a HD Receiver on the home sharing network. So it should not be that hard to add to the HD-DVR's

    Definitely

    Additionally,
    - Larger picture in guide -- has plenty of room for it
    - time bar numbers display too small to read from any distance
    - related item, it's good the time bar itself is smaller, but the fastforward rewind arrows are too small to see as easily at a glance. Now, when you fast forward or rewind you see two arrows and the small number under it (1-4) showing the speed. It's hard to see what speed you are rewinding or fastforwarding. So, making that number larger or keeping the old arrow approach where the number of arrows indicating the speed would be helpful.
    - last and more minor, In the guide, all the pay per view movie descriptions start with the ridiculous "Order now on your mobile phone, Text MOVIE to...." It pushes the movie description off the page so you must hit info to see the rest of it. Talk about an unnecessary two steps. Not sure if this is really a guide issue or just unnecessarily intrusive advertising that is temporary.

    The picture in guide is too small. There's room to make it the size of the PIG on the active channel.

    I've had new guide just 2 days and find it refreshing . The only thing mentioned so far that in the future would be able from DVR to set recording to another DVR .Since I have 2HD DVR,s and 1 HD box I< know from the HD box you can choose which DVR to set it would be nice though from one DVR to another.All in all enjoying new guide .

    Inset picture in "HD" guide is not "HD" ratio.

    I like it, but my "Jill Hennessy" folder would be really huge. :D

    I second PlayList Folders.

    PlayList Filter is now Local and All. Would like Local to change to each DVR.

    I know this has been said, but the ability to see what is scheduled to record over the entire home network in the "to do" list would be great.

    Make the blaring white font easier to read I think its just to much "glow" effect around it than the actual color and font.

    Please add another hour to the guide.


    Would love the ability to hide certain shows on certain TVs VS DVRs. My mother records tons of TV shows and they always shove mine way down low and I generally watch TV on two TVs.

    Maybe even custom playlists that work in the whole house with the yellow button in the playlist kind of like the guide yellow button.

    Is it just me or do a considerable number of these really have nothing to do with the HD GUI itself, but really other feature requests?

    Well I think they pertain to the HD GUI and the old gui but basically everyone has/or is getting the HD gui so they are HD GUI feature requests/tweaks.
