    Now that the dash button is mapped to search, is there a way to "mark and delete" from playlist?

    Now you have to press the numeral 0 button.

    Based on my reading, mark and delete is gone.

    DirecTV is, IMO, using bots to handle social media these days. Their Twitter team, especially, used to be terrific. Now? Doesn't matter what you ask, they want you to PM your account number.

    There are good reasons why DIRECTV stagers software releases. Be patient, your turn is coming.

    What's wrong with asking for your account number? Hopefully it means your issue/question/whatever and the response is logged on your account so you don't have to explain everything all over again every time you call more than once about something.

    Every single question...even if they have any info on upcoming 4K broadcasts. I've not asked one thing that would require I even be a customer.

    That is now buried in the manage recordings menu at the bottom. So arrow over to the left pane then to the bottom select that then go to the bottom of that.

    That feature is gone. Use ffwd button to jump 12 hours at a time. It should be very fast, it is for me. I leave scrolling effects off.

    Update: forgot that just moved to the 0 button. But using ffwd is faster than the menu anyway for me.

    Another feature that is gone.

    Look I like dash being search everywhere but there are other ways thy could add that back in. It’s ridiculous they didn’t add that in one of many ways they could. I’ve always though the red button delete should just give you a third option of keep, delete, mark to delete.

    Thanks, I'll try that when I get home.
    What about the Sports Teams search where you selected your teams and upcoming games would be listed? Is that buried somewhere, aslo?

    The new guide is awful. I can’t even read the description on my 60 inch. Where the **** did the lock go?

    Why did they move the the channel to the right on the channel banner?!

    I really hate the new gui. The layout is not very intuitive to me and above all else it is slow. I have been with DTV for almost 20 years and I am ready to leave over this. Not sure I have any other choice.

    Spoke with the AT&T Directv loyalty department, the rep claimed there is an issue in my area related to the resolution changing between high and low and that is what is causing the menu issues that we have all been complaining about. I tried to explain that the design of the software is to blame but to no avail. The rep insisted they were working to fix the high/low resolution issue, so I told the rep to set a cancellation date for a few weeks in advance, if Directv fixes it then I will stay, if not I think it is time to switch to Cable with a new Tivo Bolt Vox and the new Hydra interface.

    I can't fathom how Directv gave this software update the green light.

    Also the rep stated there was no way Directv could roll my receiver back to the old software but according to people on this forum, a tech stated the opposite:

    New Directv GUI - ATTROCIOUS DISASTER! - Are you kidding me?
