When we have great 8ft UI examples out there you would think the Cable companies could get their act together here. At least it doesn't have advertisements in the guide!
My biggest frustration (from a usability standpoint, stability is a whole new animal, that and the install fee.) is the fact that side by side, my new "Trio" WIDESCREEN guide shows the EXACT SAME amount of information as my old Fullscren guide. They took zero advantage of the added screen real estate, and just moved stuff around. Can you not show me an extra hour of programing and push the Program info to the top like it used to be?
Currently all of the Boxes in my house have no guide data, makes watching TV a PITA, and Cox, like always, has no answers for me.
