so there you go... viewing hours in advance on a large block of channels..

That's the crux of our complaint. You can't see all of this information on the screen at one time.

There is a lot of real estate on a hi-def screen. I'm just suggesting that they could make better use of it.

And yes, I agree that the TiVo guide is superior when scanning futher forward in time.

Unfortunately, I'm a channel surfer and I like to quickly and efficiently browse what is on now and in the short term. I can't do that with either guide on the TiVo. If I had never had that feature I wouldn't miss it but I have had it (and used it a lot) and I do miss it.

I'm also not suggesting that the TiVo isn't a great product. It is. I just paid a lot of money for one and I'm happy I did. But just because it is a great product doesn't mean it can't and shouldn't be improved.
