Dish stopped using the list format when the first Hopper was released (3 Hopper versions ago) and many have asked to have the option returned. It took 6 years for Dish to allow users to again change the nightly update time, so I don't hold out much hope of list view coming back - most cable/sat companies use icon view, it's the way everything is these days.
