"What to Watch Now" links hit or miss

On the Roamio, "what to watch now" links always take me to the recommended show. On the Minis, it's hit or miss. Sometimes the link just goes to some (apparently) random channel.

Any suggestions?

Kinda "boggles" that you find it boggling. Here's an example... I know a game is on, but I'm not quite sure which channel it's on, you go to WHAT TO WATCH NOW-SPORTS... and there you have it. Recently used it because I had a hunch the Australian Open tennis was on, but didn't know what channel. Not to mention, you get to see all the sports that's on. When you want to flip to a movie, it tells you what's playing at the moment. It is extremely useful.

It would be useless for someone who has a set schedule of watching tv. Who doesn't surf, who doesn't ever say.. "Hmm, what's playing RIGHT NOW?"

Yep, not sure what the issue is, but it's hit or miss for me as well on the mini. But I don't watch much tv where the mini's at, so It doesn't matter.

Same problem here. It's a surprise each time you select a show.

No, it's worthless for folks that use their Tivos to watch what they've recorded, not to waste time with commercials on live TV. Even sports now are so polluted it's better for me to watch an hour or so behind live and catch up. I know some folks can't handle that, but it's the only way I can tolerate it.

Its been broken since the first time I tried it on my Mini a couple/few software versions back now.

Also broken: In "browse tv and movies" on "full" Tivo boxes, under tv is "suggestions" which lists what the Tivo is thinking about taping. On the mini you get the text telling you there aren't any yet, that it can take some time to populate, that you should "thumbs" some shows, yada yada. It should either show what the host is thinking about recording, or be hidden on the mini. <shrug>
