    The grid guide extends more than 1 1/2 hours in the new version and you can use the guide while still seeing live tv (not obscured).

    TiVodesign apologized that the image did not show current or upcoming recordings, but comfirmed that they are there.

    The current grid guide only shows 1.5 hrs of horizontal space, but the new one shows 2.0+ (+ because after hour 2, it's only partially shown.) I wonder how easy it will be to switch to the live guide... It almost looks like you can do both at the same time? Or am I not seeing it right?

    You're right, thanks. I guess I was expecting 3 hours (like you see in printed guides), and mentally skipped over that it was showing 4 full columns (2 hours), plus a tiny bit of the next column.

    The NEW icon is very useful, I OCD-ishly manually go into the detailed info very often. The only other OCD-ish thing would be to _somehow_ indicate that you actually have padding on the to-be-recorded icons. That's a pipedream though. (It seems like nowadays almost all of the shows I watch _need_ padding or I miss part of the beginning/end.)

    How can they change it to the bottom like that? For ten years I've been using TiVos it's been on the top. Now I've got to relearn where to look.;)



    Of course I'm kidding. It looks like another good change.

    Sweet!! This is much, much better.

    Also navigation seems a little faster and also different with some kind of animations between page changes in the menus.

    Yeah, her point is a good one though behind the reasoning. Now you won't have any more chopped off heads.

    Not just 10 years of TiVo, but I don't know of any set top box in the history of STBs that I've used that's been on the bottom. I think some SciAtl boxes had them at the bottom, but none I used.

    The version is showing as 20.2-01-2-748 on my XL. None of my other boxes got the update.

    Ok, well maybe not as rare as I thought :) I've been a satellite customer most of my paid-tv-customer life

    Most cable company STBs have the info bar on the bottom I thought? All I have ever used did. It makes more sense at the bottom especially the mini guide.
