Is this a glimpse of a new guide GUI change?

    Once in awhile I get those tips & tricks newsletters e-mailed to me. I noticed that one portion of this shows a glimpse of the guide in the music channels, but the look is more of a darker blue color. I know the GUI used to have a darker look to it, but I never really familiarized myself with it back then, as I didn't have the service or know many people who had it.

    So is this a sign of changes to come? Perhaps this look in an HD resolution?

    Just looks like all the other mock ups they've had on their site for years now.

    I don't know.. it doesn't have the new logo and in fact it looks a lot like the guide that was on the original HR20, with a few gradients added.

    The guide on my hr24 changed to this a couple weeks ago. It was only temporary; don't remember how long it took to change back. I think I caused it to happen when I went to channel 1000 or one of those similar channels that changes the guides color while your on them. When I went back to the guide to change channels it still looked like that.

    Also notice how there's a dot between CH. and the number. I don't recall there being a dot in real life (at work, can't check). This reminds me of everything you see on tv shows and movies, where all user interfaces are completely made up out of nowhere.

    It would be neat if they had a light and a dark selectable theme. Just like on a PC you can select the high contrast color scheme for people with certain visibility problems. Hey why not?

    Well the colors are closer to the new Cinema plus screen in the Investor day slides.

    The one slide made it sound like there was a Demo of the HD User interface (4th item down on slide 110). So maybe people there saw it? I search google images for DirecTV High Definition User Interface Demo, and after a sea of images, I get nothing. :nono2:

    Didn't see an HDGUI Anticipation thread yet. Point me to where it is, if there is one!

    Best teaser in a long time considering I have given up hope on new HD channels.

    Thanks SatRcr!

    I have 2 Hr20-100s
    and this looks like the GUI that has been on it for quite some time now.
