Re: Time Warner Cable starts rolling out lightly refreshed guide
Based on what I have heard/read:
TONS OF UNDER THE HOOD BUGS WERE FIXED!
The Navigator name is being dropped because of its overall negative connotation with customers. The first stages of the new guide will be to get bugs out of the old Navigator system that have plagued TWC customers for six years. Initial changes are:
* Black interface for a more modern look.
* New Sub menus to make finding shows easier.
* Faster speed and response time.
* New Search options-although keyboard is still Title Based for most boxes. Whole House DVR and Signature Home Subs will get Advanced Search filters on their boxes, provided that their division offers it.
*Legacy boxes will be moving to cloud based services. Later releases will work to bring more cloud services in searching and feature sets to more set tops.
*New features for Caller ID on TV and Remote DVR Manager are also planned.
*Both the newer ODN boxes (Samsungs, Ciscos, New Motorolas, C-Model SA boxes) WILL get this guide upgrade in addition to the older non C non-Samsung boxes that run MDN. The MDN build will be 3.2 and the ODN build will be 5.2.
*Guide Filtering comes to ODN in this upgrade.
The goals of the new guide are to improve speed and reliability with this new release. Than, more features will come out.
