Yep i'm with the guide going to the channel you were last on brigade or at least the choice so each person can select their preferance.
I've just be forced to change to a Tivo from my old (5 or 6 years) Samsung HD Plus box and to be honest apart from the extra space its a step back in most respects.
This guide issue one, (the old box worked just fine) i now can't set a reminder for a show without recording it so endless show to delete. it doesn't seem to wind through a recording as quickly and the general usability of the machine it poorer.
At the moment i'm thinking of going back to my HD plus box despite its freezing issues which prompted the change of machine.
I know the Tivo will do more but most of the extras are junk for me but cannot be turned off easily.
So with this issue if im using the guide to find something to watch and something sounds ok but isn't then i go back to the guide i have to scroll through upto 200 channels to get back where i was or remember the channel number of each channel i try.
I'd also love to be able to delete channels from my guide as either i will never watch them or they are not in my package and its pointless them being there.
Without reading the whole thread to see if advice has previously been given, use the miniGuide, accessed by pressing OK on the remote from within a channel, as it does return to the channel you are on.

Thanks but only good if you know what channel number you are on. Just moved from $ky and there you had a choice of start at 101 or press the backup button to go to the TV guide from the channel you are on.
Did this ever get implemented? I recently got virgin and am really struggling with the interface generally as it is not intuitive. I see there are lots of threads from the last few years that ask for this feature, but it still doesn’t appear to be available - any update?
