I just received a new Premier Elite, and have been experimenting with the HD menus. I have previously been using an original Series 3. One thing I frequently used with the SD menus of the Series 3 was applying filters to the Guide. This is done by pressing "Enter" while the Guide is on-screen. This brings up a menu for setting filters. For example, if "Movies" is the filter, the Guide will show only movies.
The Premier Elite Viewer's Guide, page 14, describes this and implies that it works the same for both menu types. On my Elite, this is the case if using the SD menus. However, if using HD menus, pressing "Enter" jumps directly to the Search screen. That is, the filter menu doesn't appear and there is no way (that's apparent) for getting the Guide to show only a certain category such as movies.
Using the Elite's SD menus, Guide filtering works as expected.
Can others confirm that this is the way the Elite HD menus work? Is this a bug?
(Other than this odd behavior, I'm delighted with the Elite.)
