I am really unhappy that all my recording selections on the old OS were not forwarded to the new OS. Also I have found no way to make save option a permanent selection to "manual removal" as opposed to "remove when space is needed".
Has anyone found a manual for this GUI?

Press the FAST FORWARD key to skip forward one day.
Press the REWIND key to skip backward one day.

Disk Info, which will tell you your Disk usage meters for:
* SAVED UNTIL MANUALLY ERASED - Total percent of all programs that you have selected as "Save Until I Delete"
* AUTOMATICALLY ERASED AS NEEDED - Shows that will be erased to make room for new content as chosen in the recorded show options. This is the default for all shows unless otherwise changed.
* ESTIMATED FREE SPACE - Free space remaining.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...6#post18464636
