Just finished reading the 26 pages making up this post. I share many of the frustrations with the lack of features that were present in the past DVR version. I have a couple of additional notes/questions/comments that I haven't seen addressed: 1. With my old DVR, I used to be able to save searches that I used frequently. For instance, I had "Documentary 2012" saved and I could periodically search to see newly released documentaries. I don't see an easy way to do something similar with the X1. I can go in to "On Demand" and do some filtering to find new movies, but I think that there are some movies showing that aren't listed in "On Demand". 2. It would be nice to have a "Delete All" feature in the "Deleted" section. I personally don't like the fact that I have to delete a program twice (delete and then erase), but if there was a more efficient way of doing this, it would be less annoying. 3. There are some references to the universal remotes (e.g. Harmony). Do these have options for solutions to the X1 remote deficiencies (e.g. having a + / - 5 minute skip AND a + / - 30 second skip)? 4. My remote seems to lock up occasionally - the DVR is getting the signals because I can see the green light flash, but the power and volume buttons are the only functions that work. After I reboot the DVR, then the remote resumes functionality. 5. The lack of the DVR manager is frustrating - I would like to be able to go to my "Dexter" recording to confirm that the next episodes are scheduled. Instead, I need to go to the "Scheduled Recordings" and check multiple days to confirm that the recordings are scheduled. I think that the X1 platform has the potential to be a good system if we can't get functionality that was present in past versions.
