Re: new tv channel guide for sa8300?

Look how clean & simple the Apple app is. This is what Dolan said it would be very much like. Regardless if he was lying or not, this is more like what it should look like. Cablevision don't make the dumb mistake. Use this as your basis.

One problem with your screen shot, it is not the apple app, it is the Optimum App for Laptop!

Correct, but your screen cap is not from any tablet app which was my point.
Cabletecht screen caps do resemble the app like dolan said not yours.

From the most recent transcript

said by seekingalpha transcript :

Wilt Hildenbrand - Senior Adviser, Engineering & Technology

Probably at the beginning of the fourth quarter, but yes.
Jim Dolan - President & CEO

Like I said, if you want to have a look at it, right, if you’re one of our customers or you know one of our customers who has a tablet...
Wilt Hildenbrand - Senior Adviser, Engineering & Technology

Or a laptop.
Jim Dolan - President & CEO

Or a laptop, you can see it there using the Optimum app.

Of course we should all be seeing it soon so might as well wait till we see it and then debate it.

The laptop or tablet view looks too busy for a TV screen.

The ones that "Cabletecht" posted seem more suited for display on a TV.

Why anyone would troll is beyond me. Only adolescents troll. Try sticking with the topic.

The alleged pictures of the new guide are awful. Deal with it.

You better hope that they are not true.

They look just like my "Optimum for iPad" app minus the Most Watched icons. They look nothing like the "Optimum for Laptop" which is where you may be getting confused.

why should we hope they aren't true? I think maybe you should be the one hoping they are not true...since you don't like them.

If you have service with cablevision and use cablevisions set tops, then get used to it.

So his looks like this? Sorry, I just don't see it. His looks like garbage. Again the IPAD is clean & neat.

Dolan:

"The Onyx guide is a significant change in the customer experience. I would liken it to some of the Internet video providers that are out there like Netflix, etcetera, but it's actually much superior to that and you can get a preview of it on the tablets that we have -- on the apps that we have on the tablets now, give you an idea of what that guide and that menu system is like. And you will see that it's quite superior."

SUPERIOR. Let's all say that again SUPERIOR. A preview of it on the APPS that we have on the TABLETS now.

Does his really look anything like the tablets now? Is it SUPERIOR in any way shape or form? To our current apps or Netflix or any other INTERNET based guide?

So if it is what that other guy says. Dolan is a bold face snake oil salesman. His word is garbage. His has ZERO credibility in the cable world. Dolan is void of any reality of what is the future. FIOS would still be blowing us away with their guide. Why even put it out there? This is supposed to be the IPHONE killer. Everyone is supposed to be envious of us now. I think not.

You must have an outdated app cause mine looks a lot like the purpose guide.

It should be noted that that is the older version of the ipad app. This is what it looks like now.

Your post is just plain moronic. You say the pictures of the new guide are awful...then you say deal with it? I am dealing with it...by actually accepting and liking it. YOU deal with it.

And I better hope they are not true? What the hell is that even supposed to mean? The great thing about America is that there are options. Go to DirectTV or Dish or something if you want to be such a stubborn brat about a guide. So far you are the only person to post that has not had positive things to say about it.

The iPod app the new one. Looks like a better UI than the FIOS img guide 1.9.1 the guide is dark colors so it is easier to see. y people complained when fios came out with 1.9 with the light colors. I like the iPod version better than the beta photos. But they are going to update them all I guess since they say IP and not optimum tv. So we will just have to wait and see.

If you want to see how the colors look on your TV now go to channel 907

Great find; looks good to me. Loving the new DVR+ too. Cablevision has really stepped up their game lately, competition is a good thing.

I hope they finally offer a single press to get to the guide instead of a two press.

When watching the optimum program guide video...

With the option "Record Series" does that mean "Record New Episodes at any time on this channel"?

Or will it record all episodes regardless if it aired before or not (new and repeat episodes).

That's up to you. Both options are available.
