5 Amazing Features For Finding Just the Right Program 

Here you'll find the new features we added to your Moto Rovi 3.7 Program Guide recently. Each one is designed to help you find just the right program to watch.

Kansas: An error was made when customers were called stating that the HD Auto-Tune feature was included in the new guide updates. This was not the case. Please apologize to customers for the confusion and let them know that this feature will not be available in Kansas at this time.
