    I did a quick search, but most of the Scoreguide info I could find related to the back and forth when they were switching over.

    With that out of the way, the new Scoreguide is horrible! Last night, I brought it up to find out the score of the TB-Texas game. Then I selected Watch Now. It came back with no showings, check local listings. I couldn't believe that to be the case and went ahead and scrolled through the guide. Sure enough, the guide had the game on TBS. Not exactly hard to find. I get that this was an extra game, but....

    OK, bigger issue with Scoreguide. Sunday evening, I wanted a quick rundown of the day's NFL games. Bring up Scoreguide, Today and there are no games listed. They'd all been moved to the Completed tab. So, select Completed and it has 44 pages, starting with the games on Thursday. In order to check Sunday's games, I'd have to scroll through 44 pages and we all know it doesn't scroll that quickly. It ends up being much quicker to pick up the iPhone and use ScoreMobile or ESPN app.

    I appreciate them trying to improve things, but this version of Scoreguide needs some serious usabiliity tweaking. My one suggestion would be to leave the completed games for Today, in the Today tab. Funny how they can quickly move a game (sometimes before it is actually over) but can't quickly update the TV listings in real time.

    Can comment on the score since I use my iPhone push notifications to get updates or use Siri to ask for updates. Regarding the guide live updates, DirecTV controls the score guide, not so much for the guide data
