    I very much prefer the Grid Guide, but that's based on how I use my TiVo. However, I would never suggest my use case should determine what is best for everyone. But I've always been one to prefer more having more user preferences, while most developers avoid them whenever they can.

    Curiously enough, one of my biggest pet peeves with the interface (outside of the various bugs that have been detailed elsewhere) is the predictions bar at the bottom the screen. Aside from the fact that I think it's absolutely pointless (hey, just my opinion!), the first show it always seems to suggest is "Dr. Oz," which is a show neither I nor anyone in the household ever watch or record. And despite giving it the maximum number of thumbs down, I can't seem to get rid of it. Curse you, Oz!

    I noticed that too—it seems to list any show I’ve ever recorded, even only once as “Your Show” and many others listed were uninteresting to me. And as you mention seems to be no way to remove them. I seem to recall reading somewhere that this is supposed to get smarter and learn over time.

    ONTARIO,...
    You don't think its a paid placement for Dr. Oz do you?, I mean they do it with products in tv shows and movies, why not with shows on TiVo Hydra?

    Hail Hydra

    The stations I watch are not next to each other. It's not helpful to me to see what's on now because I record everything. And half the time those shows have already started so I'd missed the beginning.

    It's better for me to look into the future to see what will be on later to record so I can watch anytime.

    I'm not advocating for removal of the grid guide for those who like it. I just don't see it being very useful to me now that Tivo let's me record everything and watch later instead of what's on now.

    How do you know if they know???

    Also the reasons why they do things is that they are Lazy and don't test enough and thoroughly, and g-d knows who these beta testers are...

    Do you? You must think calling a software release criminal is OK. Calling people lazy is OK and worthwhile?

    Repetitve complaining and asking where the Play button is on the remote is useless and unwanted.

    Time to report you. then ignore you.

    Management requirements to launch software into production do not include bug free, feature complete, etc, etc. Core functionality needs to be there and what that is management decides. Bugs and features are being worked on as we post.

    I worked in software QA. After a major product launch, top level managers would ask how many people they could lay off -- not just in QA but in development, DBA, business analysis. I would always answer, let's see how the postmortem meeting goes, at which dozens of enhancement requests were listed and bug fix priorities were sorted out. I did not fear for my job but was concerned about the never ending enhancement requests.

    And this compliment from one of my old first critics. Love it and thanks! You know I generally do not bash people for "chiding" someone. I really only slightly bash idiots and of course Tivo, Inc.

    AND he wants to report me? For what, pointing out that he is a....well IDK...LOL.

    Oh my, where do I start? I know much about software and Tivo, Inc from Experience. I of course know they are working on it. I was in IT Banking for service bureaus for over 25 years in many capacities, including QA+++. Mistakes cannot be made with peoples money under Federal law, which means testing, testing, and more testing. They might have gotten more beta testers IF they had a downgrade procedure that at least kept the recordings (1P's and things could then be restored via KMTTG).

    I do not have an extra Host Tivo to play with, but wish I did. Would take me less than 2 hours to find all the basic bugs and things I know that are quirky to Tivo. I am a collector and have too too many recordings to backup and restore (over 1200 and you cannot restore copyrighted material to boot). And many people have reverted back until more fixes and restoring some lost functions occurs.

    I am sure they will try to make it better, but we are still in theirs hands AND we own the equipment and many of us, the service too. This must be taken into consideration. But I am glad that they have Ted around to interface. Thanks Ted!

    Why do some people feel the need to carry on and on and respond to every single post with a differing option, just childish. Say if you prefer live or grid guide and move on. Its getting like the kiddie video games forums with PS vs XB in these topics.

    I just ignored him too. For as old as claims he is, just sad really to be such a troll.

    Let me start off with: "You made the decision to go with this new software." Maybe improve your decision making skills?

    Tivo is not a bank or financial exchange, correct? (I've tested at both)
    YOU didn't backup your recordings? 1Ps? Your bad.

    Make more money. I know that is mean, but your complaint is very First World. Or, like I did, don't go with brand new software. My Tivo Roamio is giving me the same premium DVR experience I expect from Tivo.
    And with your magic wand you program the fixes, update the databases, QA them and beta test them in the same 2 hours? You have an odd take on the SDLC process.
    My backups are automated or run on pre-programmed scripts. But do blame yourself for not doing backups and don't make excuses.
