I have a few:
1. DUMP Navigator!!! Replace it with SARA!!
2. DUMP Navigator!!! Replace it with Passport!!
... Like that would ever happen! 1. FIX SDV.
Fix the bug that causes partial recordings/missed recordings on SDV channels. I know it is a SDV problem because I have a perfect record recording on non-SDV channels.2. FIX SERIES RECORDING.
Change the options for series recording. One thing I hate is the default of deleting after there are 7 episodes. I record Beavis and Butthead, and a few weeks ago there were more than 7 episodes before I could watch them. I hate that I have to set a frequent recording to "Do Not Delete" and risk running our of drive space.3. CHANNEL CHANGING/GUIDE OPTIONS.
First of all, Nearest Tune is the greatest thing I've seen in a long time. Such a little thing makes me so happy. ME ALONE, as the default is for it to be turned off. The default setting for this should be set to ON
in the next version of ODN. Also, the guide needs a "View This Channel Now" added to the list when you select a future program. Instead of "Back to Guide" and "Exit", which are redundant, there should be an option to tune to the channel whose programming you are looking at, even if it is a few days in the future.4. FIX EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE.
This is a big one, not only should eSATA be fixed, but it should be promoted by TWC. And TWC should sell external hard drives, so they have some incentive to promote/support this feature. Maybe if someone is going to Tivo for more recording space, haveing the option to expand your TWC DVR might keep many customers.
5. VARIOUS OTHER PROBLEMS.
The clock in the IPG should have a second counter on it, as it did in Passport. Also, the little :
between the hour and minute should blink again. On Passport, the colon used to blink in time with the second, made a nice way to count seconds if you are not near an analog clock.
The ACCESS MENU should default to the HOME category again. Lately I've noticed that pressing A takes you right to the Free On Demand category, rather than home. I think this is intentional to get more people to look at their VOD services.
Get rid of the "Devices" menu. Put all the options contained in that menu into the regular Settings menu. Devices has always been a freak of nature to me, and I'm sure it's confusing to find options if you do not know about that menu.
The Front Panel lights. There is an indicator light that says "HDTV", but it never comes on with ODN. It used to be on with Passport. I thought it was a nice feature, looking at the box and seeing "HDTV". Made me feel good.
Also, the indicator lights that are on should shut off when the box is powered off. That means the indicator for output resolution should NOT remain on when the box is off. It looks tacky, plus for those of us who like to save our hard drives, it was a nice way to know the box is off(only the time was on the front panel). I get the feeling this software was originally developed on boxes without the front panel output format indicators.
