    My Tivo XL4 guide has 8 channels by 7 hours. It doesnt have that high tech look of the Xfinity guide tho. I really like that.

    2 1/2 hour guide and channel logos on X1 DVR , Please make it happen Directv for us too I'm tired of ads, If Comcast and Dish can do it, I don't see why can't Directv.

    I'm tired of anybody justifying for having ads on the guide, You know it gets annoying watching PPV ads even if don't admit it.

    I use PPV. It's convenient to see what's new without having to go look for it.

    How is it more convenient.?

    Just because it has a flashy banner , doesn't mean its a new movie.
    PPV has been in the 100's since 1994 ,doesn't get much easier then that.

    We don't need PPV ad's in our regular channel guide, Keep them in the 100's where they belong.

    I agree,
    Whats funny is some were Bashing Comcast for its intrusive ads, when infact Directv is the worst!

    That Xfinity Guide is nice clean and fast.

    I wouldn't go to Comcast for TV service too expensive for my taste(especially in this area for digital service tier) but I don't mind HSI, But Directv could closely follow suit with the trending price increase, If they could put options to opt out of ads then I'm all for it, that's all I'm asking for.

    The fact is, if Comcast or any other provider was doing what Directv was doing with the in-guide ads, they would lambasted on here. But because it is Directv, the in-guide ads are A-OK, even considered a good thing by some.

    You should probably worry more about why your guide is upside down than ads.

    It shows correctly on the website but don't know why it doesn't on the app.

    I don't care how colorful it looks it shouldn't be thrown in our faces, that's why there's message inbox for that. Regardless if there's favorites or not, With their commercials about PPV or ch 200 it shouldn't get inundated on the guide.

    I agree. I just got in the habit of typing in "502" instead of "500" to skip to the movie channels in the guide. You used to be able to skip the banners by typing in "501", but they apparently fixed that.
