I've already expressed the reasons why I think the Carbon UI sucks. One thing I will say about it is that I like the darker theme.n0qcu said:I used to think that until I upgraded my HWS to the new Carbon UI. Its really not bad.
That simply trades one issue for another. Now when you want to look through the EPG, it requires more button pushing.SevenSixTwo said:I like it. The biggest part is I don't have to hit info to see the air date of a show. It's on the guide screen now. I always wanted this on the HWS.
You can do that with the 52 remote also. To move a day at a time, press and hold the skip forward or back button. To page up/down in the guide, you use the channel up/down button.SevenSixTwo said:If you use the 40.0 you can still skip a day at a time and you have page up and down functions too.
I really like the new guide. I recommend you switch to the smaller text if you can see. Also the new remote is an improvement in my opinion. Some buttons serve double duty depending upon the context. All the functionality is there except for the short-cuts (colored buttons}. Using the guide is very much more logical now. BTW the button "feel" on the new remote is very nice.jsaxon2 said:You can do that with the 52 remote also. To move a day at a time, press and hold the skip forward or back button.

I would particularly like a side by side of the large/small fonts. Please not re-post of the one DISH release but of your guides.
I thought that too, but since most new shows are in prime time and almost everything I like is an hour or more, the 2 1/2 hour scan from 8-10:30 has worked for me. The Hopper 3 scans and page/day skips so fast that it is not the problem I thought it would be.Stewart Vernon said:I don't mind the look of that guide... but I would miss the 3 hours at-a-time look. Whenever I scour the EPG to look for things to record in upcoming days, I like seeing 3 hours as a snapshot.
