It's 2013 how can TiVo not have color-coded TV listings in their Guide?
I dont know, but I always kind of preferred them. For what its worth, DirecTv's boxes dont offer that either. My early 2000's SageTV DVR software on my HTPC does... Go figure.
Is there a color code standard?
I personally would not like to see different colors per show, the name and description is all I need.
Meh. I think it would make the guide look cluttered, like a patchwork quilt.
There is sort of. All the guides I've seen that use color use Purple for movies, Green for sports, a Lime Green for news and Yellow for kids shows. I've never used one extensively but the ones I've seen didn't look that bad. Although personally I use the TiVo style guide. I don't like the grid style one. So this wouldn't effect me.
You've never seen TV listings in a newspaper color coded? It makes finding certain types of programming possible amongst 300+ cable channels available. Looking for a movie or sports becomes so much easier to find.
I'm ok with it being a selection under Settings. Color-code guide: oOn oOff
Actually TiVo online listing can show color coded or just all in grey.
Um, there is a now a new sorting feature in the guide to help with finding different types of programming that may help you out.
the online guide has it:
It would be even better to use an unused ABCD button to toggle the color scheme.
Is there a grid guide filter to only show movies, sports etc?
I have seen the what to watch, but it seems to only be for current, on now, shows.
I like to scan the guide for upcoming movies to record.
Am I the only one that finds the colors to be annoying?
Maybe I am - I like what I have, please don't force this on me...
My Sage DVR lets you use the defaults mentioned above, choose your own colors, or make them all the same color (like TIvo is now). See no reason Tivo couldnt easily offer the choice.
TiVo is not a big fan of options. I'm betting if they ever make this an option at all it will be a simple on/off, no chance they will allow you to set custom colors/categories.
That's an even better idea. Then everyone is happy. I just want the ability to have color listings - it doesn't have to be the default.
The latest update 3.7.1 added a grid guide filter "- Press the C button in the Guide to filter by genre"
