Tivo doesn't use color backgrounds in guide fields for different types of shows like WMC?
In WMC guide I can move ahead several days and see show I want to record, hit record once or twice to record that episode or series and stay in the guide and grab any other show I want. This is real useful if you are several days ahead in the guide. With tivo if I am a few days ahead and ask to record I go through record setup but end up at current time in guide when complete. I have to then move forward and find where I left off. Am I missing something or is that how tivo works?
I only use the Tivo Live Guide (unique to Tivo). You need to take a look at that. It shows the guide on the left side of the screen and when you highlight a channel, the right side is filled by everything upcoming on that. When you pick something to record (or a series- Tivo calls them "season passes") it goes back to where you were on the guide; you don't miss your place. The live guide is semi-transparent with currently playing program in the background behind the overlay. Here is a pic from the web- my Premiere looks much better than this one although the layout is similar.
You can customize the types of programs displayed but cannot customize Tivo's guides (colors, logos, etc.) AFAIK.
