I hate the new guide. It's really hard on the eyes. I thought there was something wrong with my television at first. The up & down button doesn't work properly.
I do not understand why when the system is working perfectly well without any problems you introduce something totally stupid, silly, useless, much much much slower no useful information. total disastrous.
I am going to change to BELL,, BELL,, BELL OR GET AN HD ANTENA
Because the even older system, is no longer supported on any new hardware, and the old hardware was not made anymore.
Heck even the hardware (the cisco 8642 and the 9865) are not longer made. (That the 'enhanced' guide is on).
Not going to argue.. the rollout and some of the changes were pretty bad.
Its one reason they have been working on the NEWEST and current platform.
Ignite TV is out in small distribution now. Guide wise? Its light years better than the enhanced guide.
I think its what they were striving for with it, but failed.
Just as an FYI, the Enhanced Guide which is the topic of this thread is the RTN guide, the one that came after SARA. The "latest" guide for Nextboxes is called Navigatr and you can read lots of threads on that topic in this forum if you search for Navigatr. And no, we will not be going back to RTN.
Here's a bit of history for those interested.
As mentioned above, Navigatr and the Nextboxes will be replaced in the coming years by IPTV (Ignite TV), which also has several discussion threads here. The user interface for Ignite is far superior to Navigatr. The rollout of Ignite TV has already begun.
