    Yes, some of that information is useful for some people, but a guide that is accurate for scheduling is what the vast majority of people want/need. I rarely read descriptions on my Tivo guide unless it's a show that's new to me, and I usually get that info online anyway. TVGOS worked very well for scheduling and it was free.

    I burned thousands of dvd's with that Panasonic, and I could still use it without a guide since I burned discs off of my dvr. A Tivo without a guide is worthless (like the Sony's are now). It was well worth the $400 that I paid for it.

    But "accurate for scheduling" isn't true *if it doesn't always have OAD*.

    What's more, it is highly insufficient for Wishlists and Suggestions, two of the very most powerful and important features of the TiVo.

    It could be made available or added by the DVR provider. The end user is a DVR customer, not a customer of the company generating the guide data. The guide data is essentially provided by a subcontractor. The DVR provider is the general contractor and is responsible for the final product.

    No, the DVR subscriber pays a fee for unlimited recordings. The length of a live event may grow, but the DVR provider could transmit that information and extend the recording. Instead the DVR provider chooses not to resolve the issue and instead blame it on the subcontractor providing the guide data.

    No, it couldn't. The information has to come as part of the video signal.
