My TV/DirecTv doesn't pick up my Wi-Fi which means my TV won't automatically update to the new guide. My guide & menu are the same as they've always been.
I would suggest that if you want the old guide back, that you uninstall the update & turn off the auto update feature. If you don't know how to do that, I would hit the reset button & re-install the entire system like a brand new setup & do not set up the auto update feature or do not connect it to your internet to avoid updates.
After reading all of this I'm very glad that my DirecTV does not pick up my Wi-Fi signal & that I don't get auto updates. I would be pissed too because I like my guide.
Hope this helps.
