But other than Comcast's remote and the ads what are your criticism's of iGuide itself?
Well, I've got lots. I think I know what Ken meant about not being able to get out of some things. If you push fast forward, or rewind and accidently touch another button, your cursor will not work until you find the button you hit and undo it. Youll be flying past what you want and you can't stop it. The stop button will not work.
Also, the stupid screens that pop up like, "Your recording has now started" that block practically the whole screen and stay there for 30 seconds unless you pick up the remote and press "OK".
The fact that the search function finds only the SD version of a show. My Moxie always listed all the channels a show appeared on and you could just choose to record the HD one. With this Motorola, if you find your show airs on SD on wed at 9, well then you need to scroll all the way through till next wednesday and hope it appears at the same time in HD. Scrolling more than a day takes quite a while.
Unbelievably, even if you are watching a show on HD and clink "info" then"set series recording" the unit will record the show on the SD channel. The only way to set a series recording to a HD channel is to surf through the listings.
There are other weird quirks. If you set a recording it may pop up that "Your request conflicts with two previous recordings" but it will display only the first one. And then, if you choose to go ahead and record, it pre-empts the second one - the one you didn't see.
Another thing is the display on the box. I like that theres a clock, but when you fast-forward, it switches to FF on the display. Or when it's recording all you see is "REC" on the screen.
Oh by the way for Ken maybe, and others with Time-Warner. I saw a TW cable guy today and asked him about the new Moxie. He said there was no chance they will be going back to Moxie (here in San Diego area). But he said that they will be going over to Scientific Atlanta as soon as their contract with Motorola is up.
