Hopper 3 software upgraded last night to U511 version. Noticed today that the list of DVR recorded programs has changed and is poor. The icons for each recorded program are much larger so fewer programs are recorded on each line/screen viewing. Plus the lettering has changed and both my wife and I find it very hard to read the program/movie title for each recorded item. Would like this to be returned to the previous software version that was much easier to read and had more data on the screen.
I've also read on other Dish forums that U511 has broken trick plays specifically for users that have 2 H3's and the correcponding update for Hopper w/sling has done the same for users with 2 Hoppers w/sling.
U511 appears to have escaped before it was ready for release.
This U511 Update must be fixed ASAP. Only setting choice we have is Large and Larger. Need the original size added back. Also DISH did my U511 Update at 11:45 pm while I was recording shows, which of course lost part of recording. DISH, please fix this oversight/error immediately. Add the choice for a small and smaller so we have 4 choices!! Please respond to this forum so we know you are reading it.
I have 1 Hopper 3 and 1 Joey, system updated to U511 on April 10 2018. The new DVR interface is horrible. I can't believe that any normal person sees this as an improvement. Neither my wife or me can see which recording is highlighted in order to select it. Can't see which program I am deleting or selecting to watch. Colors are all wrong, It now shows a very thin blue ring around the focused item, almost invisible. Please go back to what was working fine, no reason to fix something that wasn't broke.
Has anyone from Dish reviewed these comments about this poor/unreadable change to the DVR menu and is anything being done to correct this?
I/We just started with DishTV.
The DVR interface is horrible! Neither my wife nor I can read much of anything in the pictures!
Who wants pictures that are indecipherable?? What's wrong with plain English??
It's hard see which recording is highlighted in order to select it.
I can't see which program I am deleting or selecting to watch.
We can read NOVA but what does that tell you?
Sure, the right sidebar has English but that means we have to go to each and every stupid picture to see what the title is and how many recordings are saved!
We thought the Dish menu would be better than DirecTV's menu! That's why we changed services. WRONG!
If it's not "fixed" soon, we may just collect the $300 bonus Gift Card, cancel our service and pay the $20/month default fee, and go to over-the-air.
We can't, and we won't, live with this DVD menu for long!
