Since the damn thing defaults to displaying your SD channels in stretched mode (or vice versa), 90% of users are going to wonder what the hell happened. When I changed it, I lost input (via HDMI) to my TV, and got the NO SIGNAL message. I had to reboot. When I changed it back as a test, same thing: NO SIGNAL. This is ludicrous.
Worse, everything above 600 is suddenly NOT SUBSCRIBED on one of my 605 boxes... but not the other. I realize they can't test every situation, but truly, this is not rocket science. Okay, that's the physical. Now the display:
What? What? What?
Even LESS information than before in the Info boxes. I never liked the "three screen" manouevre, having to use the arrows. But now on many channels there isn't even 2 screens. AND WHY, AFTER ALL THIS TIME, can we not get EPISODE INFORMATION? This is pure laziness. It's like Sirius/XM: Yes, I know it's The Diane Rehm Show, but why don't they display who they are interviewing? The info is available.
And for sure, leaving us crippled with only 90 minutes of schedule available, when there is room for so much more. And like you said: get rid of the logos. Don't need them. Move them, if you must, to the info slot. There's a half-hour of gridspace right there. I could go on.
