    I agree, I have become completely comfortable with the current GUI. I think the menu on the left side is an easy and intuitive way to get things done. However, I want to mention a minor issue that continues to bother me. It is not a bug, but rather a design omission. I am talking about the exclamation point that signifies that an on-demand program has an expiration date. The current GUI does not actually reveal the expiration date, which is frustrating. If I didn’t still have an HR24, which does display the expiration date, I would be completely in the dark.

    For those of you who think missing recordings have been completely fixed in the playlist, check out this video.

    I have the same issue with my sports team favorite season pass setups, most times it will appear in the list either when the recording is complete or when a different recording begins on another channel but it is another one of those annoying glitches.

    Yesterday it never appeared in the List, I had to visit recording history to find it.

    On another note I wish I could find out what software update that video is from, it appears that he has the progress bar that matches the more transparent top menu info bar, you can actually read scores behind it, anyone else have this yet?

    What receiver? So you can read news headlines through the progress bar? The one on my HR54 is almost fully opaque, not possible to discern anything behind it, definitely not near the one in the picture or video.

    Yes I can. Although I am not exactly sure why you would want the bar up while watching the news

    Which receiver? You should check to see what update you are on because if you can read them then you are not on my update. If you don't know why then you don't use the dvr in the same manner that I do.

    Received update 0x11ac this morning on my HR54-700. I don’t see any obvious changes. Anyone else seeing differences and/or fixes?

    I got it Wednesday morning. The only thing I noticed was a slight color change with the Record icon.

    I got 0x11ac wed 4/17 7:52am on my HR44-700.

    It’s running really well actually. Very snappy, quick and I’m pleased with the performance. I too notice the black and orange record icon. I really like it. I think they came a long way with the software. I still would like the blue line in the guide to be a slightly subdued, maybe a darker shade of blue... but that’s a minor gripe considering all of the menus and channel changes are quick. I even binge watched an on demand program and it streamed it without any buffering. I think that’s the first time in years I’ve ever had that kind of luck.

    Are the "TV Shows" and "Movies" channels for on demand new? I think it's 1899 or something. Seems like a streaming service type method to sort through and view programs. Wondering if that's what else is new.

    I THINK another 4K channel was added (maybe another PPV movie channel). Also noticed a bit of weird behavior with the pause function (I think both on live pause and recorded pause. Part of the orange in the progress bar does not fill (giving a weird grey and orange) and it doesn't pause. A re-pause will fix it. I've had it happen at least 3x now. I do like the new record icon (black with orange text), but it's minor. Still having issues seeing other DVRs on my 61C

    Yes, and I don’t think the appearance of several new 4K channels has anything to do with a software update.
