    Because it adds an additional PITA button push in order to watch.

    I'm coming from a HR24 to the HR54 -- thank god -- the HR24 was sluggish as all heck :). They seem to have gotten rid of a lot of the shortcuts we had on the HR24 though:

    1) Is there a way to hide VOD in the search? on the HR24, I ended up black hole-ing the gateway so it could get on my LAN, but not on the internet and that seemed to do the trick. Are there any side effects with the HR54 by taking it off the internet?
    2) I'm keeping my rectangular remote (in IR mode) since I've got tactile memory on it lol... seems like they disabled the color buttons... I've found that the RW/FF is the new -12hr/+12hr in the guide. Is there a way to jump to date/time? Used to be the green button on the HR24
    3) On the HR24, I would normally do a search + other showings, on say The Big Bang Theory and it would show me ALL upcoming episodes... there was even a way to get it to do that just for CBS 2 for example. On the HR54, upcoming airings seems to only do the same exact episode? Is there no way to see all upcoming or upcoming on the same channel from the To Do / History lists? That was a big workflow for me :(.

    #2) not in front of my TV right now but I think it is the dash button (on the new remote) when in the Guide to be able to jump to a date/time.

    Not sure on #1 or #3.

    (Welcome to the new GUI o_O )

    For #2,
    Edit: look at the bottom of your screen for those instructions. ?

    This is now SOP, and a huge PITA, if you ask me. There is one workaround... (I'm not in front of my TV, so this is from memory)

    On the left side menu, as you say, if you choose Upcoming, it only shows THAT episode. Scroll up to All Seasons, or Seasons, or whatever it's called (it's above it). Click on that. Arrow to the right, then go back left and choose Upcoming. Now it shows all upcoming, not just that episode.

    [Arrow to the right, then go back left may not be needed, but it always works if you do it.]

    Thanks I'll try that out. Definitely a lot more buttons. I might have to look at Season Passes finally :).

    1-Not understanding the issue.

    2-When the Guide is open, note options on the top of the screen: Press 0 to show “Jump to a Date & Time” option.

    3-You are correct, “Other showings” only lists different airings of the same episode. To see a list of all episodes for a program, click on “All Seasons”. Available seasons will be shown. Select a Season to view available episodes for that season, both upcoming and past (VOD) episodes.

    After a while, these new approaches will become second nature for you. While you may not like the changes, that’s the way it is now.

    In the searches, it's showing the VOD episodes. I'm never going to use VOD so I don't want to see them. On my HR24, I black holed the gateway DNS so I could get on my LAN without giving the box internet access, thus disabling VOD. I actually did that for a different reason (cloud search kept breaking). Only been with the new UI for one day... lol... gotta learn all the tricks.

    I received SW 0x11b2 last night. After viewing today, I am not seeing any obvious GUI changes. Anyone else notice anything different?

    I have an HR44-500 running 0x11b2 since last Tuesday. I had something happen today that has never happened to me before. I have all Formula 1 races set to record. This morning I was watching regular TV, but brought up the list of All Recordings and I didn't see the Formula 1 race from Barcelona recording. I thought that was odd, so I went to Manage Recordings to see if I had failed to record it, or had inadvertently cancelled the recording. Nope--there it was. In fact, it was in process of recording. Just to make sure, I clicked on it from the Manage Recordings screen, and it started playing. A few hours later, I was ready to settle in and watch the race. I brought up the list of All Recordings again. It wasn't there, nor was it in the Manage Recordings as it was over. I brought up the Recording History under Manage Recordings, and there it was. I was able to watch it from there (spoiler alert--Mercedes 1-2 again!), but it never showed up in All Recordings. I have never had this happen in the many years I have had a DVR, going back to the 21. Now I am wondering if I have any other recordings lurking in the Recording History that have not been deleted, but that don't show up in All Recordings.

    This is a continuing problem with recurring event recording. Very annoying.

    Any word on when they are going to fix the issue where the movie start and end times are not displayed in the info banner?

    I think what you are seeing is a design choice, not a bug. IOW, not sure there is any incentive to change it. I don’t find it an issue.

    When you flip to a channel that has a movie how do you know how far along it is? Hitting info doesn’t tell you. Going to the guide every time seems completely overkill.

    If it isn’t a bug then why is that information still there for other programs? Why did they just do it for movies? That doesn’t sound like an intended design.

    It's a bug. Apparently it's fixed in the latest beta software
