That's good to hear. I must say I've been ambiguous with my comments. I've been unclear if I was talking about functionality or appearance. For the most part, I am looking for something that is pretty. I've really not had much problems with the overall functionality of CV's software, I just can't stand how it looks. While the new one looks better, it still looks cheap and everything still doesn't fit right. Some things are much better though. Hitting info gives you the full title (In my limited use), plus hitting info-info allows you to see a second page of information for a program without having to open the full guide. Plus hitting guide actually opens up the guide. Baby steps, I guess.

If only CV's new guide was wide enough to show more than 3 characters in a 1/2 hour slot.

looks like 14 is the limit for half an hour
they do not do partial words so if second word in title exceeds limit it is omitted not truncated

they should do better job with that

Like dropping the initial "The" instead of dropping the rest of the title. See channel 11 above.

Also interesting that "The Odd Couple" fits in some columns, but not others.
