Speaking of the TV Guide logo and such... So, does Gemstar provide the show descriptions? Or who does that? I've noticed that, over the past year, the descriptions have gotten less and less accurate. Recent descriptions for current network shows have been significantly wrong on several occasions -- including shows such as Law & Order, According to Jim, ER, and others. I'm really getting tired of it...

Well... I'm on my 5th :eek2: 921. The only time the 921 was stable for me was when I had guide data for the OTA's during 2.15 (and the temporary "free" LIL's during 2.16). Without complete guide data the timers are more likely to screw up.

E* continues to shoot themselves in the foot with the 921. I believe it is possible for this big silver box to work as advertized, however due to business decisions the "dream fix" software is being prevented from deployment.

When the 921 users put up with 6 plus years of bugs and **** then they can complain.
