I've used an analog TV with a Guide+ on screen EPG for years, and having just unpacked my STB-8 and used the EPG, I think the Tivax program guide sucks.
Am I missing something? As far as I can tell you have to tune to the channel first, then hit "Guide" and then you can see the current and upcoming shows, but only for the one channel. To see other channels: first tune to channel, hit "Guide", etc.
This is a far cry from a proper EPG where you can see a grid of all available channels and scroll around to see what is going on.
Hopefully I've missed something and there is a better way of doing things. Please let me know.
Otherwise, I agree that the picture quality is excellent.
I also just got a DTVPal Plus. Its picture quality is not even as good as my best analog channels, but is much better that my worst ones. The DTVPal has an excellent EPG, and evidently can pass through TVGOS to my TV. The feature set is truly astounding.
Pity one cannot get a combination of the great picture quality and the excellent feature set in one box.
