    Whatever happened to TiVo's sort by channel name in the guide?
    They left it out of Hydra and didn't include it in the recent release.
    I am the first to mention it recently on the blog.
    Isn't it something that you all would like to see brought back?

    For me, i would never use a channel "sort by name"....... That said, This is why I like Tivo vs most any other DVR..... They give users OPTIONS, because what I really like someone else may not.

    What I read and it seams like TE4 (Hydra) is more of a this is the way we designed it..... and you take it like it was made for the engineer.

    The worst experience I have ever used on a DVR was DirecTV's genie HR54....... I was so glad to be rid of it..... But one thing that has me really concerned is that TE4 is the way of the future, and hope Tivo will roll out a "experience" that gives us many choices.

    I find the channel guide almost unusable without "Sort by Name". On one of the TIVO help pages it describes sorting by name but says that it is "inaccessible" in 21.8.1. Does anyone know why this has happened?

    Because they chose not to include it. That’s the simplistic answer. They made some decisions based on how used some options were and I’d surmise this was one that they didn’t see enough use to include at least for now.

    I’ve used that sort in the past but not often. More to find a channel. But the channel names tend to be arbitrary so I don’t find it that useful.

    Good luck in getting it back.
