I'll add a couple I've been storing in the back of my noggin for a while:

On the Playback Recording screen, if you press Info, then choose 
"Delete", the semi-translucent background which dims everything but the 
pop up goes away.

On the TV - > Schedule Recordings screen, if you choose Program Guide 
and then hit "6" to move to the Program Finder, it works fine.  You can 
even hit "4" and go back to the Program Guide.  However, if you 
initially choose Program Finder, and this hit "4" to go to the Program 
Guide, it dumps you back to the Schedule Recordings screen. 

Those are the only two I've noticed.
