Plus 1
If i have it bumped out to 1 time slot when you go up or down it changes to 2 or three. I thought it had to do with 1 channel having a 1 hour show slot and the other have 30 minutes but I tested it and tested it and it always does it. I thought someone else had stated this before this thread. Maybe I am mistaken.
I have stated this before in other posts. The slice guide works fine in the old UI, but doesn't work when pulled out and browsing channels. Can drive you crazy with two or three or six items showing. Jutting in and out.

Perhaps a switch in the settings to turn it off once we're no longer "newbies"?
That would potentially solve the issue. Hate to see settings get overly cluttered, but this may be one of those cases that it could be a good idea.

If you feel it is really necessary, I'd be happy with just the arrow... the way it jumps out is ridiculous after seeing such once. Ideally it should be a setting.

Why not have a preference section under settings that brings you to a preference page, then settings wont get cluttered.

I second that! Great idea.

It appears that SD may have fixed the subject issue now. I haven't seen it on either my Shield or Win10 Surface Pro yet today.

Still going to the lowest channel when I got down button on my firestick.

On my Shield, I had to exit the app, then go to Recent Apps (double-press Home button) and kill it there, then restart the app before it would start acting as it should.

Just tried newest slice guide on Windows 10, which DOES solve the "going to lowest channel problem" and also has a new method of waiting to pop out channels waiting until you stop searching down or up. MUCH better! (Haven't tried the firesticks again, yet)

But... when you first go in to the app and hit "DOWN", it does NOTHING. Nothing gets highlighted. If you escape out to the live broadcast and then hit down, it works fine.

Thanks for the changes!

I'm not seeing that. Just to make sure I'm doing it right. You "OK" out of the pop up and are in Recorded. And then you have no control until you escape to Live TV? And this is on Win10?

Sorry, it happens when you go in to live TV the first time and you hit "down" it doesn't highlight a channel. But only the first time. Was happening in Windows 10.
