Unfortunately, no.  You'll find lots of complaints about the new user interface here in this forum.  Hopefully DirecTV is listening to the feedback and will make improvements. That's what happened six years ago when they last changed the user interface.

I turned on my TV (directv) to find they "enhanced" the menu and guide interface. I'm not sure if the thought behind it was intended for 4K TV's or what but It looks horrible. Graphics are small and muddy while parts of the menu are difficult to read. In some cases it seems the new style was pushed out before the full set of menus was complete (no changes to some of the sub-menus). I do, however, like the transparency effect and would not mind that feature in the old style of menus.

 

Anyway, I'm wondering if there is a was to opt-out of this new style of menus as I would prefer the old style instead.

I Agree 100%! The change is unwelcomed and not thought out very well.

Awful!!! More remote presses required to accomplish the same action.  Not very intuitive, and missing functionality from the old user interface.  You would hope that the interface designers would add functionality rather than remove it (or hide it someplace that you can no longer find it).

Yes, this thing is horrible.  Out of contract, nine more weeks of Sunday Ticket to decide where I want to get my content.  This might just be the straw that causes me to cut the cord for streaming and OTA, whick will be 4K in a couple of years.  Either way, not staying around when they seem to be going backward instead of forward.  Thanks for making my decision easier.

Like, sorta, the new channel guide.   Howver you can't really read the channel names, see the logo.  Font is pixelated.

 

Hoping this was tested on HD prior to deployment and this is just a temp issue.  This part of the user experience missed the QC i guess?
