Love to see your great work continue to evolve. Wanted to share with you so far, my experience with the latest version 1.9.0.
1) The title menus under Movie - always defaults to sort "by title", even though I had set it to sort by "Date Recorded." 1.8.0 saved the settings to where you last left off in the sort menu. For instance, if I chose to sort by "Recorded Date," that is where is remained and started from on my next time into RecordedTVHD, until I manually chose to change the sort by.
2) Still 8 - 10 seconds on exiting from a watched move via the extender, back to the menu icon's, but much quicker navigation through the setup menus.
