Snip from PC world, Jan.11th........What about the last mile? Gemstar's TV Guide On Screen electronic programming guide is going to be a ubiquitous feature on DVD recorders in the coming year. But, sadly, neither Gemstar nor the DVD recorder manufacturers are going the last mile to ensure that the TV Guide On Screen is able to provide metadata to the disc. TiVo-enabled DVD recorders, such as those from Toshiba and Humax, build the DVD's menus using the TiVo interface and all of the useful metadata that interface shows (such as, program name, title, airdate, and so on). TV Guide On Screen's version 8 can transfer some info to disc, but that info will only be visible in a TV Guide On Screen-enabled recorder. --Melissa Perenson
