I'll second that with a cherry on top! I have an HD TiVo, as well as the HDD250 -- to even begin to compare the user interface is pointless -- there is no comparison at all. Everything about the TiVo makes sense (to me) -- the TGOS on the other hand, is about as convoluted as you can get.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but how come if I want to do something as simple as searching for a show from an alphabetical list, I can only select the FIRST letter, and the have to scroll through EVERY show that starts with that letter until I find the one I want?? There's no way to narrow it down -- at least not that I have found.
It's kind of amazing to me that although it's been on the market for about 6 years, no other "guide" programmers have duplicated, much less improved upon, the TiVo interface.
