I second those reasons, as well as the 'bounce back' after FF and lack of ads in the guide, amongst other things.
Things that I think would be nice to change/fix:
*have the 3 sized info bar remember the position I want it to stay in, instead of defaulting back to the full size after a while
*when in the guide, sometimes all the show info isn't displayed so you have to select the show to see the rest of the info, would be nice to just press the 'INFO' button instead. This is annoying if the show you're trying to get info on is on at the current time, because when you select it, it changes to that channel whether you like it or not
*5.1 (which hopefully will be fixed soon)
*fix some of the lag between screens. Surprisingly my DCH box has more lag then my DCT box. Surprising because the DCH is a newer box. I've tried restarting/reseting box with no change (hopefully better soon)
*fix the Tivo sound effects on the DCH boxes (sounds a little silly but this is the box I'd like to be able to turn them on, the DCT I have them off because it's in the bedroom) (hopefully fixed soon)
*someone had mentioned changing to the Tivo style guide, which although would be nicer, I personally wouldn't make it a high priority
*Day+ in when using the guide (I realize there are other ways to advance when in the guide, but this was an easy way to forward a day to the same channel & time)
*Hard drive space remaining indication. It's nice to know when you have to hurry up & watch or delete some content before losing it or not recording something new
Also not a Tivo box type issue, but if someone has multiple DVR's in the house let them have the Tivo interface on selected boxes. Personally I'd like to have the Tivo on one & the i-guide on the other.
As I've said a couple times now in this post, this is my
wish list, I'm sure other people would add or subtract from it.
