    I don't have the remote that came with my tivo premiere, so I started using the remote from my series 2. It has one button for guide/live tv, when i press it, i cannot get the guide to come up. Any suggestions?

    A series two remote has separate Guide and Livetv keys too, your remote is from a series one.

    I use a Series 2 remote on all of my Premieres as I have never got use to the select button being in the center of the buttons instead of below.

    used

    I can't stand the Series 2 remotes for the exact reason that the select button is NOT in the center of the arrow buttons.

    Yup, Series 1 remote. The Series 2 not only has separate buttons for Live TV and Guide but it is easily recognizable because it has the 1/2 slide switch.
