Just to confirm once your watching a tv channel if you push the right arrow button you get the show description. is this correct?
Also if you continue to push the right arrow button do you get later hours of what is on? like 7pm then 8pm then 9pm ect?
How do you clear it after your done? or does it clear itself
YES to his confirmation of what I first said, and
YES, if you keep pressing the right cursor button, it'll keep showing ahead another half hour, possibly until the info actually runs out.
And you can clear it by hitting an Exit button, or letting it time out (which might take awhile and keep blocking the picture, so you'll most likely just use the Exit button).
I'm a Dish customer, and trust me - the remote, menu, guide and OSD's work and look EXACTLY the same as the ones I've been using for the last 3 1/2 years.
So far there has not been ONE EXCEPTION to this - I see no reason for any of the answers to the few questions of it's workings left to stray from it. EVERYTHING we know for sure so far about it (which is about 90% of all there is to know) works EXACTLY like Dish's equipment - at least like my standard def 322 tuner and it's remote. They OBVIOUSLY modeled this EXACTLY after the Dish ware, because their main reason for even bothering releasing these things is to tie people in to getting used to using the equipment from their service, right down to the minutest detail and feature. It's like a big advertisment for the service, but actually goes one better, because it puts everything about the service right into your home and hands sans all the pay-for programming that they offer - just the free, OTA channels that you're gonna get anyway with someone else's receiver, if not theirs - so it might as well be theirs. Very very
smart marketing move, if you ask me.
