Nice, yet FreeGuide looks a little easier to browse with ...

    Yeah but FreeGuide takes a whopping 276 megs of virtual memory on my system, loading all that java, and it dosn't let you browse while downloading. It is also slower to load, since it loads more than 1 day, before it even pops up for business.

    As an after thought, what do you think makes FreeGuide easier to use? About the only realtime advantage I see, is it smoothly merges midnight of 1 day, into the next giving you a full 24 hour sliding window. Where my script, just gives you what programs start that static day, and you need to select from the optionmenu for the next day. Just like a real tv guide, :-).

    9 times out of 10, I just want to see that day anyways, at the time I run it.

    I intend to add favorites, and printouts in my next version :-).

      I know, I know, Java sucks pretty bad for this TV Guide stuff, yet the GUI is friendlier and more intuitive, or so it looks... maybe I get used to ztk-tvguide's GUI soon ;)
