A good program, which Ive used for years now, but am seriously thinking of giving it up if I can find a half decent alternative.
Rule No.1: Don't use this if you are a gamer. I know you can have it on voice only, but thats hardly an answer to this problem.
The issue lies in that when a reminder window pops up, it always steals focus.
This can mean your game just got ruined (especially if you are online or your game is one that crashes when you do a task-switch).
Its happened to me one too many times now and I can't take it any more.
Its ruined my gaming enough times to make me want to drop this program. Its just not worth the hassle.
The other annoying thing is when you edit the markers, there is no option to tell it NOT to remind you if the program is a repeat. So combine that with the first annoyance and you have a potent combination.
Having said that Digiguide doesn't always pop its window up in front, sometiems it can do it in the background but not always and it is always a the most crucial time when it gets ya. Oh and yes, this is even with the option about taking focus, disabled. It just ignores it.

If you can deal with that crap, then get it, because apart from that which is a major issue imo, this program is very fully featured.

Its also in need of another update as it hasnt been touched in ages.

Really good programme guide. I have been using DigiGuide for a few years now, and using the Beta Versions of 8.3 for the past months.
I have not noticed any problems, always updates ok.

An excellent application for a UK user - I haven't had to look anywhere else for TV listings for the past several years. It works well and updates smoothly.

I would use if it could support AOL 7 or nineMSN TV listings for Ausstralian users like me.

Basically, it looks good, and it's the best competition I've seen yet for Gemstar's GuidePlus. OTOH, after completing the install and update downloads, I had no channel numbers associated with the channel names. I saw that I could assign a channel number, but it would be pretty tedious to do that. I may have just missed something in the install options, but I would have rated it higher if the correct channel numbers were present by default.

the only adverts are on the websites that are associated with the program (such as digiguide.com) There are no adverts in the actual program itself. I personally dont mind the adverts on the site, they are mostly adverts for something i will be interested in such as films or pictures and bios of stars in the program/film i am interested in. Also they are done in a nice way and they do not bloat up the webpage, it is still very quick and clean and has no popups. Still an excellent program :)

It is good but be warned! - buying the software DOESNT remove ANY adverts. You still pay for the adverts. Dont email them, they dont care about you opinion

Digiguide is excellent - would like to see some more sexier looking colour schemes - but the use and the functionality are excellent (1st shareware util I ever paid for)

oh btw docco, its not just cable people that have EPGs, read the description, its designed along the lines of the Sky EPG (as in satelite).

this program is amazing. it is so powerful and isnt a burden to slow internet users as the updates are only a few KB each. the program updates silently, runs with no problems using very very little resources. at only £5 for a whole year of updates this program is excellent. just a few minutes setting it up with your channels, favourite types or programs and it does the rest alerting you when a program is on and what channel, etc.

First of all, OrlandoTommy, this program is UK only. Deal with it. I am sick of hearing from Americans with huge egos complaining that their country isn't supported. You should really read the web site before assuming that your country will supported. The USA isn't the entire world, you know.

Secondly, the offline DigiGuide is a major advantage of the program. It allows many advanced features that wouldn't be possible on the web, like reminding you when a program is on even when you aren't connected to the Internet. You can set up complex smart search rules to highlight programs that you might be interested in. Response time is instant. You dopn't want to wait a few seconds between each click when you're browsing a TV guide. But there is an online version too, at www.mydigiguide.co.uk, which is in itself a very advanced TV guide.
