Any way to control transparency of guide?

We just moved from DirecTV and AT&T phone service to U-Verse.  One thing that we don't like about the design of the U-Verse channel guide is that the guide really covers what's still playing on the TV.  DirecTV's guide would open a small window in the upper-hand right side of the screen playing the current channel and the remainder of the guide to choose a new program.



It seems kind of silly for U-Verse's guide to have a small window showing the different channel playbacks as you scroll, while almost totally obscuring the current channel in the background.





I've looked everywhere to see if there was a setting in the preferences to change the transparency of the guide so that the current program could be more easily viewed.  I've had no luck.





Does anyone know of such a setting and if so, where is it in the command tree?  If A&T U-Verse monitors these postings, this would be a good suggestion for the next update (IMHO).

 



Thanks in advance for any help,

No, that option does not exist.

 

If you are concerned with missing part of a program while viewing the onscreen guide, press the PAUSE button before viewing the guide.  Once you finished viewing the guide press the PAUSE or PLAY button to resume the program.
