    When I have the guide up to see what is coming up next, The time in the upper right corner will say 7:57 pm, but the guide for the next program is already at 8PM. On the HR10-250, the guide would not update to 8PM until the upper left corner time clicked to 8PM.
    Anyone else notice this?
    Wonder if there is a way to put the current time and program time in sync.

    This is a feature, not a bug. Tivo implemented this a long ago. I believe it was right about the time the Series 2 came out.

    This never happened with my HR10-250's.
    While watching the guide, as soon as the time clicked to 8pm, the guide updated to the program that was starting at 8pm.
    Doesn't seem right that at 7:57pm the program that is playing up to 8pm would be taken off, and the program that starts at 8pm would post at the top of the list.

    My HR10-250 always did that. Granted, it's probably been 5 years since I used one, but back then it did the same thing.

    It does make sense, at least to me. At 7:57, I'm not really worried about what I can watch the last 3 minutes of. I'm more worried about what's coming on soon that I'll be able to watch for at least 30 minutes.

    Well honestly, I almost never watch live TV. But when I do, I prefer Dos Equis. :D
