    Time Warner Cable is advertising beginning today their new 'LOOK'. . . with all the whining and complaints we had, theirs isn't as good!

    That's awful! It looks like they are still center cutting it for 4:3 displays.

    Yikes! Love the hour and a half guide view. Makes DirecTVs seem longer, even if it's not. Is this being rolled out everywhere?

    I'm assuming a setting isnt set wrong, and they really are just that incompetent.

    Photo was from the ad in yesterday's Charlotte Observer, not a screen shot. It indicated a rollout in the area beginning 6/6. Friends had not gotten it yet. I think they have two brands of DVRs at least in this market, Cisco and SA ? (SA was older model, not sure if it's new HD.)

    SA was bought by Cisco.

    There's still a second brand. I'll try to find out. Both act / view about like a pre-HR20.

    Its easy to forget that with all their warts and scars, we still are using the best DVRs out there, even if they are a little sluggish. Everyone other than DISH or DTV subs is living in a 3rd-world banana republic country, as far as DVRs are concerned. Do I need to include Tivo owners just to fend off a barage of flaming haters? OK, you guys are in, too. :)

    That's actually not really different from their old guide.

    Content wise I think you're right. The PIG is bigger, I think, and the old background was blue-grey.

    I just called my friend to get a picture of the old one - he got the new gui last night! His first impression was it's more intuitive.

    You mean that you don't show 3 hours in your guide? Dish has been doing it for years for HD, :D

    I guess that this suppose to be competing with DirecTV's guide. We already know who one that one.

    Are you possibly referring to Motorola?

    Not sure. I know he had a Motorola around 3-4 years ago for SD, then got a Scientific Atlanta for HD around 2 years ago.

    Last month he added their 'MRV' and they brought out 2 boxes and ended up changing both 2 days later to Ciscos.

    Needless to say I haven't been impressed with either or their PQ even after going digital. And the remotes are terrible.
