    Notice the slightly different and more defined color scheme, the logo change, "Parental Controls" instead of "Parental", the clock is moved to the top right corner and of course the lack of PIG. What do you guys think?

    Obviously I don't know for sure but I couldn't imagine that they would remove PIG totally. I think it would most likely be an option.

    Looks SD still to me, and where is this from?

    It's from a D* commercial advertising parental controls. It seems to look clearer on my tv than in the picture. Also the picture is not full screen in the commercial, I zoomed in on it.

    Actually, looks older, but post importantly, where are you getting this pic from?

    I guess I'm missing what looks old about it.

    The old color scheme used darker blues.

    It looks like the GUI that was on the HR20's when they first came out in 2006. All blue and "stale" looking, before they involved more white.

    I do remember the old GUI but this seems different to me, though I probably don't remember the old GUI all that well either. Personally, I like that there's more shading and that it is darker. IIRC, one of the main reasons that the current GUI was implemented was the poor readability of the original which shouldn't be an issue with an HDGUI so I could see D* going back to a darker color scheme.

    This is from a new commercial that's just started airing. I'm a graphic designer, and I notice the subtle differences. This isn't the old dark blue look; this is new (note the new-style Directv logo in the corner). Unfortunately I'm seeing the same old system font and pixelated text, so this particular screenshot appears to be at the most a refreshed SD UI.

    Which would lead me to wonder if the new GUI might be able to be changed back and forth between HD and SD. This is clearly a new layout, how it's rendered I can't say. I can say that it looked better on my TV than it seems to in the picture. It looked pretty crisp.

    HD or not, this should make the "NO PIG" crowd pretty hopeful.

    Here's another shot. Lighting seems a little better on this one.

    Who says you wouldn't be able to have PIG? I think having it as an option is a pretty good idea.
