My biggest complaint is the searching for movies/sports/shows. When it comes to using the remote there is very little user interface control.So many times you get icons to scroll through for results. A list would be much easier. When I search for MLB I get the games in icons and when I click on the icon, I do not get the channel it is on. I have to press info for the channel. I have to click two more times to see a list of all the MLB games scheduled for 9 days out. The list is sorted for the furthest games out and if I want to see today's date, I have to scroll down the list to see what is playing today. No fast easy way to sort on today's date AND their channel.
It just seems there wasn't a lot of thought in the making this efficient, way with too many clicks to get what you want. It seems they were more about pretty then straight to the point. I know the old days are gone but the search system in the older DVRs was so efficient compared to the Hopper. And yes I have read all the manuals and searched the net but there isn't an easy work around. Back in the late 80's our model was save a click.
