    I asked for it in the wishlist thread that’s going on. The more I use it I think I can live without it but would definitely use it if it was there. My wife really likes it though so we’re going to hold off on upgrading our main box until we hear if it’s coming back or not.

    I remember in the Hydra demo video, Margret said that they included the grid guide in Hydra because the MSOs asked them to. It would be nice if they would also include the live guide in Hydra because their retail customers asked them to.

    While I personally prefer the grid guide there is no reason not to have a choice.

    I can’t live without it, waiting on hearing back when I (and anyone else so inclined)will be able to uninstall Hydra.

    While others will see this as a dumb reason the lack of the Live Guide is why I am not using Hydra at this very moment. I can deal with bugs and quirks(Hydra issues topic) but I just can't sacrifice a feature that kept me using Tivo for all these years over just jumping to whatever DVR Comcast has had through the years as my main go to box. The fancy new appearance in Hydra is nice and all but at the end of the day I use my Tivo to find and record things to watch and the Live Guide works better for me in doing just that. I will gladly stay with the current UI over any new fancy update to keep it that way.

    Need live guide. I use my iPad for quick lookups. Much faster to use. Also want to get recordings stored on my computer. I can still get music and photos but no recordings?

    Never used the live guide... always grid. But they should at least make it an option in Hydra or combine the 2 because clearly alot of customers love it

    After 3 days with no live guide I have come to the same conclusion.

    Hydra consensus so far is not good.

    I think it’s good and I like just about everything about it except no Live Guide and a few minor annoyances.

    I will get used to the grid guide, and it's better than on G3, but I really liked the live guide because of the long titles of the shows on NOW. It actually scrolled without a hitch as well.

    Changed my vote. Although I have tried it, I don't use the Live Guide but obviously many TiVo users have been using Live Guide for a long time. It should be an option for those who prefer it.

    I'm surprised this many people use any guide. My house mostly watches recorded programs and uses the search functionality to find and record new shows. Paging through channels, times, etc, sounds inefficient.

    Your method assumes you know what you are looking for. Looking through a guide is like looking at a restaurant menu to see what is available.

    Many of us use both methods. Search when we know what we want, Guide when we are browsing for stuff.

    Search limits your options.

    What's Search??? LOL. I only use search on the app and very rarely and only for future new series (if they are even there). I am simple. To me, the Tivo is mostly a very nice DVR. I know pretty much what I watch and they are mostly in my over 150 1P's.

    And I absolutely HATE the grid...it's absurd!!!

    I'm not missing the live guide yet. Is there another way to see everything that's coming up on a certain channel over the next 24 hours, on 1 screen ?

    Do you know how many times I've searched and no results came up, but the item I was searching for was in the guide?

    Neither do I, I can't count that high.
