    I will often look at the To do list just to see what's going to record that night and plan my immediate viewing accordingly. There are some shows that I want to watch as soon as possible and others that I'll watch "when I get to it". If it's 7:45 and there are shows that I want to watch that night recording at 8:00 and 9:00, I'm not going to start a movie at 7:45. I'll probably watch an hour long show that has commercials that I can skip. That way, I can then watch the other 2 shows and probably finish watching the 9:00 show pretty close to real time.

    On the other hand, if there is nothing special on that night, it probably is a good night to watch that movie that I recorded over the weekend.

    My HR44 got the update 0xd8f on 1/17 and the only change I see is the program icon box on the right side of the banner. Did they modify the update to install a "limited" version of the GUU?

    That's the old GUI, not the new. I'm running xd8f too.

    If you want to go ahead and get the new User interface force a download weekdays 3am-7am eastern. The new release 1037 has bern in the stream most mornings.

    Well, I have become used to the new GUI (note that I didn't say "like the new GUI"), but one thing continues to bother me, and that is the grayness of the screensaver. I tune into one of the music channels when I am not watching TV, just to have some background noise, and the screensaver gets invoked quite often. I can't understand what the developers were thinking when they created this awful looking screen.

    So the new music channels screensaver doesn’t have song information?

    The music channel screensaver still has song information. My screenshot was when the DVR was paused on a TV channel. I was noting the gray, not black, screen color. Sorry for the confusion.

    I just got the new GUI. How does one filter the playlist (local vs all)?

    I guess you are saying that you can't currently do any filtering?

    Go to the playlist and hit 0 (zero) button. That replaces the yellow button to bring up your playlist options

    When I do that all it does is sort the recordings in a different order. Are you seeing something different?

    In fact, at the top of the screen it says "0 to sort".
