The old black background was easy on the eyes. The new white background glares in a darkened room. I hate it!!! How about a configurable option... BTW I also hate the new remote due to overshoot of the touchpad. Exacerbates the crappy text entry in a straight line. And Siri is not helpful at all for my home sharing library searches. I will be returning the unit to Apple. First Apple product in 31 years that I have sent back as half-baked. Steve would never have let this thing see the light of day.
