I shouldn't have to scroll more to see the same amount of info with an HD UI.
You may have a 60" screen, but TiVo also has to accommodate users with 40" screens that are viewing from 12' or more.
TiVo could list everything you want on one line with a suitable font size (for all) if they got rid of the right frame. I too would prefer everything on a single line, simply because I'd like to see more showings on the screen while maintaining the current font size. But I think TiVo wants to retain that right frame for descriptions, pictures, etc on selected episodes. I don't have a strong opinion either way.
I also think it would be nice to have some sort of filter directly on the Upcoming screen to show only HD episodes, only new episodes, and/or only scheduled episodes, so you don't have to scroll through dozens of results to find these entries. However, I'm not certain that the utility of that feature would outweigh the added complexity of another option on the screen.
