I didn't know that - thanks!
Not sure if it would violate Tivos patents or not, but...
Why couldn't that make it so when you cursor over the the channel tag, you get the same listing that you get as listed above? Wouldn't that be the best of both worlds?
I still stand by the fact that I believe that the user should be able to tell the box what size TV they have and have it adjust accordingly with the amount of info it displays.
the info trick would be fine if once you're looking at the details for that channel, we're given a way to change which channel we want to see...
so you go to 212, highlight the number, then press info and scroll through a few days' worth of programming...I'd like a way to change the channel number in that same screen so I don't have to go back to the guide and start the whole thing again...
The "please wait" when scrolling to each new page is what really annoys me.
strange, I don't get that...I press page down and the page goes down...
Out of 424 responses so far, only 13% even want the current guide as an option (#3).
I'm curious how many would have voted for the TiV0-style GUIDE if it was listed as a fourth option? /steve
With the current guide, a three-hour block is my top request. I'd like to see all of prime time at once. The horizontal scrolling's a big pain.
The "Please Wait" delay appears each time you press INFO on a channel number in the guide, making it a chore to switch from one "channel program listing" to another.
Once the list of programs for a specific channel is loaded, it's easy to navigate up and down in that list - it's the delay in going to the next or previous channel to get the list that is the problem with making this equivalent to the TiVo list guide ...
For the very reasons you cite, if they did nothing but give us an option for a three-hour grid with a smaller font, I'd be happy.
I voted "Other" -- I want the TiVo style guide.
I want the one where CIG works!
Would like to have a way to change to a Tivo List type guide also .
I'd like the Yellow & Blue buttons to jump 90 minutes back & forth like the Red & Green do for 12 hours.
The YELLOW button is no longer available for this in the GUIDE, based on the latest beta software we've been testing. That being said, we've got a similar request on the Wish List already:
In the Guide, the FF and REW buttons should move 1 screen sideways.
If you like this idea and haven't already voted for it, you can do so here. /steve
I chose "Other" because DTV never had a decent guide to begin with. I choose the TiVo style version simply because it's smarter. Those people thought this thing through before just throwing something together just to get their product out the door.
The TiVo system utilizes better screen usage than any other guide I have seen to date. One thing's for sure. The HR20/21 hasn't done it right yet. That model hasn't done much of anything right yet.
How about an HD Only view in the guide configurable from a menu setting. That and/or a new HD Only Guide button on the remote.
I voted larger guide, no PIG.
Personally, I abhor the PIG and voted for an earlier poll for an option to turn it on and off.
I also like my HR10's two guide options--one with a grid guide much like the HRx and one with a split guide.
You are not alone. Only 12.5% want the current Guide with the PIG as even an option.
I went for #1, though I would personally prefer 3 hours instead of 2. We generally watch TV in the 6:00 - 9:00 range, so if I'm looking for something on LIVE TV, it would be nice to have those 3 hours available at one time. As it is, if I want to see what happens to be on later in the evening I have to scroll over a little bit. Not a huge deal, but since we're dreaming, why not dream big, right!
For me, at this point, I wouldn't mind a few more channels either, perhaps 10. I know that at some point you keep adding information and a change in font size/spacing/etc. is required, which may not be appreciated by eyes older than mine.
So, I guess, ideally my vote would have been "other", but in the interests of the user base as a whole, voted for #1. IMHO, it's a notch better than what we have now, and gives those of us who want it a little more data, without cluttering things up so bad that it becomes TOO hard to read for some others.
