The problem with a lot of web sites is that insecure technologies like Adobe Flash and MS Silverlight have been deprecated and browser support is being discontinued in the near future. They are being replaced by HTML5, which is an improvement, but it means that their web sites need to be rewritten. It's an upgrade to them but rolling out a new site that is only half rewritten in HTML5 looks like a downgrade. It's kind of like GM selling a new electric car that has no windows, seats or doors and claiming it's an "upgrade." It may have an upgraded engine but it's usability just took a nosedive.

We've been using a Zap2it link from Pennsylvania:

I don't know if it's just me but the sites with the old formatting were working for Bell satellite but there seems to be a problem now.

If I go to Sat Mar 28, there begins to be some blanks in the schedule. I noticed this on the weekend and the problem is still there.

Does this mean we are losing the sites with the old formatting? :-(

@bobmac I noticed the same thing last week. I thought it was just the Canadian channels, but I can see now that there is no info on any channels past April 1.

On the plus side, I've been using the new site for search - it works much better than the old system.

Oh no your right, it stops on March 30. :-( :-( :-(

The new one isn't AWFUL, but it takes up more room. I get sick of sites that make everything big and flashy for ppl who use iPhones when I have to scroll and scroll to see the same info that used to be on one page!

Why is it these companies think they are improving something, when they are actually making it much worse?

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to prefer style over substance. When Rogers switched to the new Navigatr firmware, they surveyed people and most people really liked it. Unfortunately, they didn't survey the people who had PVRs and had a huge amount of the PVR functionality taken away, including deleting recordings during the first rollout due to inadequate testing.

I logged in to NewZap2It and it had my right time zone and Shaw but it lost my channel prefs! And now the channel numbers have gone away from OldZap2It so I can't even copy them.

Hey wait I can't even find a way to move channels. I see Stars so I guess it kept my channels, but they're in the wrong order! I want East to West but Shaw puts the numbers West to East so they're all wrong! Does any body see a way to move the channels???

@Bayguy Click "Contact Us" at the bottom of the new guide for some helpful tips:
Quote:
To select favorite channels, highlight the star to the right of the channel number.

To limit your view to only show your favorite channels, select the “Starred” filter at the top of the grid next to “All Channels.”

Channels will appear in numeric order and cannot be rearranged.
Also: A single station view is in the works.

The old guide is working again!

Oh yes it is! Whew. Good for now anyway.


edit: I can't find where to tell it my time zone. When I choose Shaw direct East it thinks I'm in East. Even ppl in Canada who get SD East might not be in East then might be in Nfld or somewhere else and the time would be wrong. Does any body see where to change the time zone??? I thought it was in my own settings but I can't find it.

[edit] Hi sorry another edit I figured it out, I told it I was in BC but I still chose SD East. Now the time is right! Dunno why it got screwed up it was okay a couple of days ago.

Been using the old zap2it guide but I noticed after tomorrow a lot of channels aren't updated. Hopefully they aren't ending support of it.

The old Zap2it guide data has been updated to Sept. 14. so everything is good again.
