    Just got my upgrade today to the HR44 plus 3 genie clients to go along with my 4 other HD-DVR's.

    Anyway, got the new remote on a few of them and have a question: with the previous remote while looking through the guide, you cold hit the down button and it would skip to whatever was on the bottom of the screen. With this new remote you have to go channel by channel and it doesn't skip anything.

    Am I missing something? Thanks

    The volume and channel buttons are now toggles.
    With the guide on the screen toggle the channel one towards the bottom of the remote or up if you want it to jump up one screen.

    Same is true with the older remotes except they have actual buttons to press.
