I find the display in the DVR part of the FireTV menu to be very cumbersome, especially after a large number of episodes have been recorded. The situation is I often record shows that I might watch sometime in the future, and often the show is in syndication and the number of shows and the orders of them is cumbersome (in the hundreds!).
For example: I am recording "Modern Family" which has new episodes on ABC but then local Fox station also airs older episodes. The FireTV lists all of the shows by the order of recording which makes it a headache to find an episode or the next episode, or really, anything at all. I have around 150 episodes recorded.
I propose that there be an alternative interface, or method of sorting such as sorting by season, just like most other streaming apps.

I agree... cumbersome interface. Some of the time these things are the way they are because of silly obvious patents. It would add to the cost of the Recast to have to put channel numbers in, for example. (I'm not sure that's true, but TiVo probably patented something like that.)
