I like the full screen guide. I use the guide to find programs to set up recordings and the lengthened time shown along with the skip forward one screen is just what I need. I wish that when the picture was taken off the screen, the sound would be muted also.
One would think that with these new "alerts" being put in, they would have added an alert for when there was a conflict with 3 things being scheduled to record and it isn't going to record one of them. That is a feature that is sadly lacking! Whenever you have a number of things being recorded at the same time, particularly if some of them last more than an hour, you have to go check that there are no conflicts and even then, the machine makes changes after you check.
I don't know if this feature was there before but I discovered that when adding time to finishing late you can add 10 minutes by using the FF button.
