    I think the poll is irrelevant. Especially when TiVo knew the actual percentage it was in use and decided accordingly.

    Quoting this time.

    I specifically singled out premiums, on which I've never seen nor had to skip a single commercial, ever. Of course I record other channels so I can skip.

    I think we all know why Tivo got rid of live guide. It doesn't fit their tile centric interface, which is why their compromise is the tile based mini guide.

    The previous poster's scenario of browsing premium channels has a better solution than live guide anyway - browsing/using On Demand. Since I've never found a use for live guide, I'm just curious what others are using it for. I get a lot more relevant data from the grid. I've never looked at the grid at 8PM and thought, "I wish I could see what's on at 5AM at this very instant and I refuse to press a button".

    I tried Hydra again and lasted a day and a half. Downgrading again right now. I don't know how you guys can use it.

    A day and a half is not long enough to get good at using anything. And I don’t know how you guys would want to return.

    I think the live guide that they have now is going to be it for a while.

    Play All will be returning shortly. I'd be less optimistic about the Live Guide returning in it's previous form.

    When was the latest update for Hydra? I upgraded back to my original UI 2 months ago.

    It would be really annoying if they put it into the app and not the box UI updates at some point.

    Doesn't sound like it'll be in the next box update, at least.

    But it's cool to know it'll be in the app. That will come in handy. :thumbsup:

    Maybe I've lost track of what the Live Guide is, but as far as I know, it has always been the type of guide in the iOS app.

    On the iPhone, the guide screen is so narrow you can only see the list of channels but on the iPad you are correct, it is a “live guide” style with channels on left and shows for that channel highlighted on the right.

    Edit: had to check both as I don’t use the iPad TiVo app very often.

    You are correct- just the opposite for me as I normally use the iPad and the iPhone only sparingly- probably because it doesn’t have live guide!

    You can get the live guide on the iPhone if you select the channel number in the guide on the app
