#21. Last night the downstairs’ remote for the Genie stopped working … now I have to pound it on a table and jiggle the device select slider before it will work! The remote controller is not even 5 days old.

#22. I still haven’t found a way to do a search directly from the Guide, without having to hit INFO and then fiddle around looking for ‘Upcoming’ etc. With DISH you could just hit the search button whenever and it automatically populated the search field with the program that was selected on the guide, the program you were watching or even a program on the list (depending on where you were). Now that is SMART search. 

#23. The information displayed when scrolling through the Guide is not enough. With DISH you got at least two more lines of information which precluded having to make another step to get more information on the program.

#24. Ok, so you can playback YouTube videos but the DVR controls (eg. stop, FF, REV) do not appear to work with YouTube.

#25. When looking through the Guide for a series, say Discovery Channel’sFast N’ Loud‘, the brief ‘info’ at top does not tell you the year or episode number. With DISH you got both, so I could work out whether I had seen that episode.
