We recently switched from two older HD-DVR boxes to a Contour 6 HD-DVR plus Contour HD Receiver.
Mostly it is an improvement (Greater recording capacity, access to all recorded programs from both boxes, voice search, apps built into boxes)
There are a few things I don't like on the new boxes but the most annoying is that the program guide covers the entire screen; you no longer get the box in the corner showing the current program. I turned the guide transparency all the way down to '1' but you still can't follow the program while in the guide.
Is there some setting I do not know about; or could Cox add this option?
Found it! Problem solved.
Press the right navigation arrow and an abbreviated program guide shows in the right 1/3 of the screen with the left 2/3 of the screen showing the program you are watching.
Ah, a secret becomes exposed! Thanks. Press the Arrow again, and you'll get a guide for the current channel.
