I just got my X1 installed today, and have a few suggestions: I would like to request re-introduction to some of the organization of options in the On Demand listings, which do not now exist in X1. For example, in the old system you could look up movies by category ("Free", "Premium Channel- Channel" ) and *then* get genres. Now if you choose Genres you get movies from ALL of the channels, pay and free, and there is no way to filter except by New or not. OR to be able to Search within a category (within a Channel, within a Genre) rather than Search through everything. By the time I scroll through all the options, I'm too tired to watch anything. If you can't do that, then give more filters so that it allows us to do a more effective Search (ie by cost, by genre, soon to be unavailable..) I particularly liked to be able to view each channel (or even just all channels by subscription?) and then go by Genre. I also found it useful to have "Early Premieres" in the one or two Premium Channels that were available. The current version requires scrolling endlessly through many films, and somehow the info seems smaller and more difficult to read. It has also long been annoying that the "pop-up" telling you something abt the movie/tv show doesn't tell you nearly enough. I suspect the "more like this" feature is meant to replace the Genres. I have found that what they consider "like" is very odd. (I was looking at a description for an Action flick and got "More like this" suggestions that included two kids animated features, a romance, and a documentary.) I didn't get this new set because I was intrigued by the new technology, I got it because I got a new deal. I'm hoping I'll like the features, but if accessing everything takes more time and effort, I'm wondering if I should hang on to my old set top box.
