The interface needed a refresh so I am ok with that. Overall I like it but the speed sucks
Woke up to the new interface this morning. Haven't had a whole lot time to look but my initial reaction is that I don't get all the complaining but I shall reserve final judgement until I've had a chance to really dive into it.
Still nothing here... I really want to see it and use it.
Give it a couple days. It'll drive you nuts soon enough...
Patience Grasshopper, and remember, "having is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting".
just recieved the new GUI this morning in Hampton Roads VA ,
i have Genie 2 server with 3 4k genie minis
would you like to share your experience ?
[the fact of getting new GUI is not relevant anymore]
And what is it that will drive me nuts? There's a few things that have moved around and it will take some getting used to but I'm not seeing any of the performance issues some people are reporting.
I received the new GUI this morning, and of course have some likes and dislikes, most of which I'm sure time will cure. One dislike is the Play List defaulting to last recorded. I know I can press 0 to change to alphabetical, but is there a way to set alphabetical to default?
No, the default cannot be changed.
What version do you have? Hopefully you have FF1. That one is the best. Other versions have been intermittently very slow for some and downright always laggy for others and buggy (no on-demand, things like that). Personally, the fade in the guide drives me insane. I have had the new interface since August and it bothers me more now than it did then. The "all channels" recording gets old after a few weeks when you get new series recordings set up. When you have the sports search or on demand listings up, it only shows you 4 at a time instead of 8. Back in the guide, you will realize that, although the size is the same, the contrast is poor and you can't read it from as far away. The black background that comes up whenever something comes up at the bottom of the screen, like the GIGANTIC progress bar, the "press <<" messages, or one-channel guide, becomes more annoying over time.
But there's pretty logos in the guide now...
It is FF1. And yeah...pretty logos.
so far its ok, very similar to the old D* gui just small changes.
would love to see voice commands/remotes being integrated 2 compete with Comcast X1 /Cox Contour / Altice 1box software
i would also like to see "profiles" like on Netflix, with a house with multiple users this would help to separate who is watching what or who recorded what etc.
the "info" program description takes up less space on the screen/ and you can access ondemand easier. when you press info (on select channels) "more (network) shows" takes you to ondemand for that network.
also LOVE the channel logos in the guide this adds a nice touch from using fios for a few years.
but beyond that works ok/ also "search" is on every screen now by pressing -
Had it for about a week now. I dislike it even more.
In addition to the other complaints, I find when I fast forward or 30 second skip, every now and then it stalls for a couple of seconds before it advances. Even after rebooting a couple of times.
I have an old HR20-700 hooked up to the same TV for over the air locals.
I am starting to use this more and more. The old gui is very easy to read and the 30 second skip doesn't put up an annoying information bar on the bottom. Great for sports!
Too bad it is more slow than the new gui. But the new gui is slower than the previous version.
I am a DirecTV subscriber from the first day they went live and this is this the first time I am disappointed with the interface.
I was wrong earlier... it shows 5 teams or shows not 4, but everything else still stands.
You mean 0FF1 does not get rid of the shade? It is downloading right now, I was hoping this was the massive correction, I guess not.
The only massive correction as far as I am concerned for FF1 is that it is stable and not as slow and laggy. By stable, I mean the sports/movie/TV shows searches work, on-demand works, you can press << to watch from the beginning, things like that. The actual design hasn't changed since August despite weekly reports of its hideousness.
Is this rolling out to HR54/CK61K or just Genie 2?
Anything above the HR34.
It is rolling out very slowly but if I had to guess, they decided to send it to almost all genie 2s because there likely isn’t a lot of them out there yet.
