Fair point and well said.
I don't mind the grid guide. I just can't believe they removed the sort by channel name option. Such a stupid move.
A useful feature for some. Depends on how organized your lineup is. Fios is pretty easy so I didn’t use it much. If I had Comcast, I would love it.
What I miss more, though is the refinement of the guide down to sport type. You can do C to list categories but you used to be able to drill down into subcategories.
I find I rarely use any form of the Guide on the TV - almost always on the iOS iPad App.
Ditto for me (minus the Ipad part). When I started exploring options outside of the TiVo ecosystem, I started transitioning to alternative guide usage. I found that online listings along with some experimentation I was doing with TVDB favorites exports was a much more functional and useful (to me) workflow than any version of the TiVo guide (or other set-top guide). Between PC and phone I had greater customization and easier program search and sort available. The spotty performance of OnePass with online sources (that has been an issue for about 2 years now) initially pushed me to looking at alternatives, but having done so it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I'm not sure I would go back to a set-top guide no matter what. Perhaps with Voice-activation and recording built-in to a linked command -- but otherwise I can't think of any other compelling feature.
Yep, I refine my channels all the time with this for Comcast. I was just about to move over to hydra, this is the reason I won't.
I keep reading about this "Live Guide". What is it exactly? I haven't upgraded to Hydra yet.

If you have not starting using Hydra, then hit Guide, then "A", then select Live Guide. I thought it was the default.
FASCINATING! That must have come out after I turned off the Tivo 8 months ago. Probably missed it by a few days. That was definitely not a feature I remember seeing. It appears to show the guide data for that show's parent channel in a sidebar. Is that right?
It's been on my TiVo units for five years. Yes, right.
I'm new to TIVO using it a little over a week. What is Live Guide?

You have to feed it or it dies.

The latest hydra has a live guide of sorts. Up arrow gives you 4 to 8 programs on a channel at a time in tile mode. The number depends on the tile width. Tv series are twice the size of movies. I don’t know why.
Over in Season Pass Alerts, I show where having the Live Guide (and its incorporation in the Record (Manually) by Channel) is useful in the old interface. See GirlFriends Guide to Divorce--S5E1 Only available manually
I don't believe there is a good way to easily confirm and program around such a guide error in Hydra.
Note that because NBC Sports messes up their Tour de France coverage (essentially listing 2 variants of a show as the same show), I find the need to use these techniques on a regular basis
It's actually more than that. The new live g
guide with the up arrow scrolls all the way to two weeks of programming ... and backwards too. What I don't like is that the channel list is descending instead of ascending and that there is no skip ahead key that would skip ahead a page or a day. The right arrow key will move one program at a time.
That’s disappointing you can’t skip ahead by days with it, I was thinking at some point of upgrading again but it seems I would still be irritated without the live guide.
Well. It is the live guide
FF moves ahead by a page. I don’t see a way to go day by day.
That's funny. I know I tried fast forward and it doesn't do anything. I'll have to try it again
I was doing it when I wrote the post.
