On Wednesday morning Comcast did a software download in Baltimore that made several changes to my Motorola DVRs:


The Main Menu consolidated onto one page instead of two.

The ability to make and label up to five favorites lists (using an on-screen keyboard).

After hitting Guide button and Favorites button, the guide only displays favorite channels.

Mini-guide can be set to display two channels or three channels.

A timed screen saver (only covers the 4:3 area of the screen).

HD programs labeled as HD in the guide.

Hitting Rec button records everything in the buffer istead of starting at the current time.

A menu comes up after hitting My DVR button, brings up a menu of all DVR options, not just the list of recordings.

Manual recording can be set to "Mon-Fri".

A "Welcome to On Demand" screen after hitting the On Demand button.

"New" or end dates displayed for On Demand selections instead of "LC" (Last Chance).

A time bar while watching On Demand, just like the one for watching broadcasts and recordings.

Faster response time for On Demand controls.


Most of the changes are listed above. Here's a web page about the "improved guide":

And the user guide:

Firmware is version 16.35.

On another note, DVR rental has gone from $10 to $12 a month. (Coincidence?)

In the DC Metro area, specifically pg county, I also received a firmware upgrade too... so that means the HDMI to Receiver to TV problem is no longer an issue for me...
