    Yes, I just tried it and you are right, but there is an issue with it .
    When you go to the next page, it skips the first program on that page. Every time you press the fast-forward key and go to the next page, one program is skipped.
    I will write a suggestion at TiVo.Com for them to fix that and to put the guide in ascending order.

    I sent this suggestion to the TiVo suggestion box:

    On the live TV screen - up Arrow - live guide:

    1) you can press an arrow key to go ahead or back one program at a time, or you can press FF or REW to move one page at a time. There is a bug here though. When you go to the next page, it skips the first program on that page. Every time you press the fast-forward key and go to the next page, one program is skipped.

    2) Please put the live guide in ascending order. It is currently in descending order which is inconsistent with the regular guide and is difficult to follow when you're used to an ascending list.

    3) as long as you have the right/left arrow moving one program and the FF/REW moving one page, why not have the advance/back skip keys move one day ahead or back.

    4) there are about 4 tiles that show on a page but only the highlighted tile shows the time of the show. It would be nice if you would show the time of each show on the page without highlighting it.

    I thought that at first but realized it was not showing me an overlap. The first show on the left after a FF was the first one just off the screen. I wonder if that differs at times.

    I don't see that on my TV screen.
    I was at first wondering if that's what was happening, but no.
    I tested it several times and on my box (Roamio Pro), a program is always skipped and not seen when you press the FF key. No overlap.

    I’ve played some more. It seems to matter what channel and what tiles. Maybe tile size? I’m not sure. But it worked fine on EPIX. But not FS1. Maybe the narrow tiles work better (movies)? I can’t figure out a pattern.

    And I didn’t say overlap. What i see often is that the first show just off the screen to the right becomes the first on the left after FF. But not always.
