I swear I heard something about the new program guide with Comcast being designed by TiVo. However I just got a call from Comcast (automated) that said the new program guide is rolling out in my area in the next ten days (Seattle, WA). So I go to their website to check it out and it is branded by TV Guide and doesn't mention TiVo anywhere. Was I confused? Does anyone know what's going on?

The Seattle area did have MSTV (Microsoft TV Foundation Edition) but that whole area is being switched to iGuide (http://www.guideworkstv.com/ http://www.i-guide.tv/).

TiVo signed a deal long w/Comcast (http://news.com.com/TiVo,+Comcast+reach+DVR+deal/2100-1041_3-5616961.html) but the first deployment area is Boston. See http://investor.tivo.com/ReleaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=246452.

So that means we aren't getting it in my area? Why are they having two different programming guides in different areas? Oh well I should have a TiVo soon anyway so it shouldn't really matter.

Well, not yet.

Here's the story about Comcast yanking MSTV: http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/business/315614_msftcomcast15.html.

There are more than two. Comcast at one point had these, depending on the area: MSTV, iGuide, Scientific Atlanta Resident Application (SARA). These are covered by http://www.comcast.com/dvrselect/ and http://www.comcast.com/dvrmicrosoft/.

Also, I hear they got some former Adelphia areas which were running Moxi. Why? I dunno, but it might be up to the local affiliate.
