Re: [iO] New Guide Rollout

Bring back the old guide. This is terrible. I might drop cablevision over this. It's that bad.

i like the guide but i would like to see a few improvements.
1) press info on the current channel, it should tell you what genre the current content is without having to press info again, the same thing applies for the guide, you have to press info twice on the channel selection to find out the genre.
2) "more info" and "record" are not necessary when pressing "select" on a channel selection in the guide, pressing info again on the channel selection is the same as "more info" and the record button on the remote should do the same thing as "record".
3) their should be an option to change the color scheme, the current color scheme isnt that good.
4) the channel enter timeout period is too short, you must enter 3 or 4 digits within 2 seconds or less, or else !

I think that there should be an option to set the "select" option, whether to bring up the menu or tune direct to the channel. This would make everyone happy about that (whether "one button" or "one button press" is preferred). I personally preferred that as "one press" how it used to be, but with the faster loading in general & option for "favorites" (would be great if we could have a few custom guides, for the multiple people who may want to use it), plus more channels/page, I am very happy.
