I like the iGuide for the most part. It's still not nearly as easy as the Tivo, but at least I can live with it now. I have to agree that it was better before that huge Ad showed up at the bottom of the guide. My box lacks the Dual Tuner function, but I can tell that it's there now. (Pressing A/B on the front panel lights up the A/B light.)
Justin: Did you have your remote customized or something? My Harmony remote still makes the Page Up / Page Down function work. Although the Favourite view is not a default of the Guide yet, it is easier to get to. The Quick Menu seems to remember what you last used, so if you want to use the Favourites view of the Guide, you can just push Menu and then Select to get to that mode. I'd prefer it to be a setting on the Guide, rather than a separate function. But it's easier to get to now.
The channel changing speed has definitely improved, and not just on the SD channels. Although time will tell if the skipping, stuttering and pixelization are fixed, it seems good so far today.
The stupid Ads that were on the Info bar are gone, and the display-time for the "flip bar" is now adjustable down to 2 seconds. I wouldn't mind if it never displayed, only showing the Progress Bar instead, but I don't run GCI.
