Channel Guide and info on TV upgrade/change 9/14/2011 - WE HATE IT!!!!

The Channel Guide on our TV's changed and was supposedly updraded yesterday 9/14/2011 - AND WE HATE IT!!! the font is too small and my wife can't read it (and we have a 60" TV), space is wasted on large borders around the edges, and the colors are such that the contrast level (low) makes it hard to read.  Does anybody know haow to change any of this?

There's an option to revert back to the old style Guide in the settings.

If there is really a way to change it back to the old guide could you tell me how to do that or where to find the info please. I have spent a couple of hours with Verizon Tech Support and have gotten no help at all. So it would be appreciated.

If you go into Menu, Settings, Television, Guide View, you can select Classic View.  This will give you the older 1.8 Guide view.  There won't be as many channels to view on the screen, and the boxes are a bit bigger.  However, this will not do anything to change the colors on the screen.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: New Channel Guide

While this won't help the color issue, if you go into Menu, Settings, Television, Guide View, you can select Classic View (if you have IMG 1.9).  This gives you the Guide as it was in 1.8, so there is not as much clutter on the screen as with the new view.  There won't be as many channels to view on one screen.

Do what I did for my parents which made it easier for them to read. Under settings-video settings-graphics settings, set this to SD. You will still receive your HD  channels but it will enlarge the menu guide font.

No, it doesn't.  Let me guess, though, you don't have a HD TV or a DVR, right?
