    Does anyone know how I can change my TiVo Edge guide from : "Grid Guide" to TiVo "Live Guide". I cannot stand the "Grid Guide". Both of the guides were available up to and including the TiVo Bolt +. If changing the guide is not currently, is there a way to advise "the powers that be", that we would like the option? Thanks !!

    Folks have been complaing for years, but it's not gonna happen with TE4. It's still availabe on the iPhone or IPad, if you want to schedule that way. Assume on Android as well.

    Closest you can get using TE4 is hitting the UP arrow while watching live TV. Then key in (or arrow to) the channel you want. >> pages forward through the shows on that channel.

    I still prefer the old live guide, since it's text based, but once you get used to this, it actually works as well, showing you all the upcoming shows on a single channel.

    Welcome to the reason I won't upgrade to TE4 or willingly move to an Edge.
    Folks use the guide in different ways, and for those of us that use and love the presentation of the Live Guide, there's just no way the grid guide can make me happy.

    And again...it is the one feature an overwhelming majority of Tivo users want. Make it happen!

    I actually prefer the iOS guide to the TE3 live guide, because of the fluid scrolling.

    On an iPhone, touch the channel number while in the guide.

    On an iPad, works just like the old live guide, but more smoothly.

    Personally, I always hated the old live guide, and never used it. Much prefer the grid. To each their own, I guess.
