    On my NSX-32GT1 is allows me to choose something called "Broadcast" for the guide instead of Rovi. I just noticed this or I would have asked Sony when I had them on the line. Does anyone know what this is?

    That's not actually for an electronic program "guide" like the Rovi. It is setting how you get the program information for the active channel. You may choose if you want to display the information from Rovi or the data that is embedded in the channel's broadcast.

    I just switched mine over and pressed guide and it said I did not have Rovi enabled. How does one access information about the channel in this mode and what is the information?

    You can see the information with Info by pressing [Fn]+[4] while in Built-in Tuner input of the Live TV app. It is all the information located on the bottom quarter of the screen.

    Thanks, that is very helpful. However I get that whether or not Broadcast or Rovi is selected.
