I like the new firmware update.
We use the manual timers on rare occasion when there is no other alternative, but the lack of the title of the recorded show is a big downer. Shaw Direct would have to list the names of all portions of the shows included in the manual timer or just list the show that has the most time. It would be much easier to short time the previous show to make room for two shows that follow the shorted show.
Some shows start right away which has important plot information like the show "Motive". It seems that our recordings always start 6 seconds or more late anyway.
