I understand how the box is controlled by LMCE, but don't you end up with slop all over the screen with the box's GUI and menus then LMCE's GUI laying over the top of that or how is this situation handled? It's something I've always just assumed could not be dealt with and so have never bothered to ask. For me it was always a deal breaker so I've decided to look into this further and see if maybe I've just been ignorant to some simple solution to this problem.
With my Bell Dish, when I schedule a program to be recorded, during the first few seconds I can see the Bell Program Guide info overlapped over the LMCE Program Info. It's only for 5 seconds or so and after that, any time you press the Info button on your remote you get the LMCE Guide Info displayed.
It doesn't bother me in the least. The only time I ever see the old Bell stuff is when I change channels and it doesn't last long and has never been an issue with me.
