    I see no difference in manual recording. It may be one or two keystrokes less.

    Perhaps you meant "Find by Channel"?

    "Find by Time" and "Find by Channel" depended on TiVo Live Guide for their program listings. I used it for a few shows where what the programmers considered a rebroadcast was actually a different cut from a previous live event. I needed to manually record the later broadcast in order to pick up info from the new version that wasn't in the old. The later broadcast usually showed up at a certain time but would occasionally move around to a different time. Being able to access this information via the "Find by Channel' screen was a lifesaver. However, without the Live Guide, I doubt we'll see these options.

    The loss of the ability to use these guides to work around the mistakes in program listings is unforgivable.

    Note: The programming issues I referred to occur in how the Tour de France bike stage race is listed. I'm using the past tense only because I am now less maniacal about seeing everything. But NBC and NBCSN still mess up the listings.

    The data is not tied to live guide. The data is the data. It is just a matter of presentation. I’m sure TiVo got the metrics on usage and decided it wasn’t worth the effort to basically show the same data in two more formats. Manual record still exists which can be used to record any time range on any channel.

    Exactly. But presentation is all important when you trying to figure things out. Live Guide allowed me to do it without making extensive external notes. The grid is useless for what I need to do (track future programming on one channel).
