Tivo guide from Comcast never made it past a very limited trial. It's not available here nor most places.
There are advantages/disadvantages to either. The TV Guide on FIOS sucks, there's no "star" rating for movies, it's not widescreen format, yes there are ads in the menu, you can't switch to the 2nd tuner, etc, etc. I had Comcast, I'm well aware of what the differences are, and they are minor. As I said, the HD-DVRs FIOS is using are almost 6yrs old now- far too old.
As far as the Tivo guide, that's too bad, I live in the Boston area where it was available, and it's been a while since I had Comcast so I'm uncertain as to what's going on here- I do know they've had the 320gb boxes for a while- something most of us would kill for at this point. Almost all of us FIOS customers are still stuck with the lame 120gb boxes.
