CONFLICTS NOT SHOWING, New guide is SLOW to respond

Do I like the new guide initially?  No, I'll admit that.  However, I will limit my complaints to those that are PURELY functional.  Before I get into those functional problems though, I think the new guide has a ton of potential.  I like that I can (now) setup a recording from my bedroom (non-DVR) and I can delete programs when I am done watching them (instead of waiting until the next time I am downstairs). 

However, I would trade that in a heart-beat to eliminate the two functional problems I am having.  First, the guide can often be very slow to respond.  Sometimes it is fine.  Other times it is miserably slow.  The DVR could eventually train me to tolerate this but I won't like it.  

My main issue is with the second functional problem.  If I am attempting to record more than two shows in a time slot, the new guide DOES NOT SHOW the conflict in any way.  The old schedule showed me VERY CLEARLY that there were 3 (or more) shows all for the same time slot.  The top 2 priorities would be recorded and the lower priorities would not (unless I rescheduled them).   

Verizon, I would rather have a working Taurus than a broken BMW.  Please don't take away a system that was working on force a non-working system (with more bells and whistles) on me.
