    Margret Schmidt, chief design officer at TiVo says:

    "The update...will roll out to TiVo subscribers soon..."

    I'm guessing very soon.

    Surprised they'd roll this out before cleaning up the guide data debacle.

    They really need to get their priorities straight. Pictures are Not faster or easier to use than text. Reminds me of what my boss would tell vendors, "we won't pay you for fashion changes"

    Work on something worthwhile.

    Nah, they roll this out to distract users from how bad the guide data actually is :).

    It's found in the article linked on the previous page.

    It isn't actually a quote, but just a line in the article. The big question is whether it will make its way down to the Roamio or if it will be Bolt only (I'm guessing the latter).

    I'm still surprised roamio got comskip, so who knows what will happen. A new ui is not for us, it's for new sales or in response to request to a cable partner.

    I suspect we will see it on the Roamio and Bolt versions... I think they will sunset and baseline the Premiere at it's current build level.

    I am actually not afraid of the change, looking forward to see how it improves the integration with app content.

    They should allow us to swap our Premieres for Roamios to thank us for being Beta testers. To compensate us for the pain we went through when it came out.

    If you goto Tivo's main page you will see a picture of the guide on a screen in a living room.

    pretty sure that's a render using the current tivo central. You can even see the blue line to the right and left of the current discovery bar

    Maybe this is what Ira was referring to being announced at CES and needing our help to test? Seems unlikely he'd say something like that about new hardware, like the Mantis, so it makes more sense that he would be talking about a big software change like this.

    That's all I found and it ain't a guide. It is an explore this show type screen.

    John's...
    Looks to me like what you see now when you highlight an entry en the discovery bar, only expanded to take up the portion of the screen that was occupied by whatever menu you were in.

    That screen is actually a little TiVo-esqe at least.

    I am betting (Hoping) the guide doesn't significantly change. The layout of the page might be a little different, but I bet the grid design itself survives the transition.

    Sorry about that. Go to business.tivo.com and look under products. It is some of Rovi's stuff. Some of it sure looks a lot like the UX. I hope it isn't. That would make it no better than a cable box with the exception of having apps.
