Years ago when they first launched DVR's here, they had a different guide on those that was a lot more sleek than the TV Guide one. I think it was called the Passport Echo. That was my favorite guide.
The one we have today is also on the DVR's now, and I remember using that in 2002. Then again, when they installed my cable here, they brought the same exact awful cable Motorola cable box that Cablecomm used in 1999 when they launched digital cable here!
