    Since I have upgraded to the "latest and greatest" Genie 2 receiver, with 4K added, the interface of the menu, recorded (list) guide etc has changed. I am not sure if it is because of the 4K thing or not.

    Before when I went to MENU-->Serch, I was presented with choices like movie, sports etc. If I chose Sports, I got a list on the left to search by sport... then the team I wanted to search for.

    Now, I get the hunt and peck method of finding things.

    Is anyone else getting this? How can I go back? Or can I?

    Thanks in advance...

    jimmie57.......

    I read the posts on the link you provided but it does not address my concerns. The link relates to server problems and sim cards. I am looking for solutions to the new interface that has appeared on my screen which is wayyyy different than the previous interface like I had before Genie 2-and -4K.

    Thanks for the link but... yea.

    There is no solution to this except pray that they modify the software.
    You can not go back to the old one. Every night it checks for new software and would update it again if there was a way to go back.
    There are some more threads talking about this new look also.

    You are gonna have to have patience, complaints like yours come in every day. They'll fix it...eventually. Not much, if anything, can be done about the new GUI.

    The choices for movies and sports are now under a menu section called DISCOVER, not SEARCH

    Yes sports search is still there. go to menu, then scroll down to discover, then chose sports which you have to scroll to the right to get to on the line with discover.

    Nothing here either, still on 0xd80 from 9/7.

    They can take their own sweet time, far as I'm concerned. By the time I get it, you guys will have all the work-arounds figured out for me. And maybe the Stop key discussions will have died out.

    Same here, I was upgraded to 0xd80 on 9/13. Is there a timetable for the rollout?

    My biggest issues with the new GUI is the "ALL CHANNELS" instead of the channel I want a series to record on and WHY is the damn guide still just 90 minutes visible? The higher resolution guide and font size should allow 2-2.5 hours of guide to show.

    I got a software upgrade a week ago, but thankfully the new GUI was not included. :)
