Re: X1 on demand menu is horrible.

It's still terrible. I find myself watching Netflix more and a couple of my favorite cable shows. It is counterintuitive to search for any new shows or movies.

The real joke is the movie title lists (under Movies>>By Title). They have to have been populated by someone who either can't spell or doesn't know how the alphabet works. Under any of the single-letter headings you'll find titles that in no way belong under that letter. If you plan to look under Movies>>By Title for a film, allow yourself lots of time because you need to go through every line of every letter, and be ready for titles (especially at the start and end of each letter's listing) that don't belong where they are. What a joke.
