    Mine got changed also, I like the smaller more channels and hours ahead look of this guide. But I hate the advertisements they added to the guide.

    All this can be changed in your guide options (including the banner ad). These changes are part of a recent update.

    Is there a way to have the full guide now? I can't find one and I've always preferred the full guide without video.

    They also erased all the search history. I use search to find programs to record, especially when I am out of town. All the search history was erased when they downloaded the new software "improvements".
    I also don't like having the full guide. I went to 6 rows and it is a little hard for my old eyes to read. I would like to have an option for the full guide.
    Seems like they try and fix things that aren't broken. Of course they wanted to include the banner advertisements which can be eliminated. That was nice of DISH.

    "Seems like they try and fix things that aren't broken".

    I think it's more like "add a new feature" or "fix an existing problem" and then break something totally unrelated (erase search history! :(). I've seen this in virtually every IT department I've ever worked in. I'd be looking for a new job if I lost history/archival data on a Live system because of NOT testing first on a Test server.

    Depending upon the type receiver you have, you do have the option to change the format on how your guide is displayed; 6, 4, or 3 lines with video. You are not able to remove the video from the guide. You can also remove the advertisements from the bottom of the guide with VIP DVR receivers.

    Press the Menu button on your remote, 8 (Preference) and 1 (Guide Format). Then select the format you want and enable/disable the banner at the bottom of the guide. This is on the 622 and 722 series receivers. The 211 series allows you to change the format also.
