    i'm looking for a program or website that is mobile friendly where I can find tv listings. i've been using zap2it.com, but it takes forever to load and you can really only look at one channel at a time if you want to see the listings for the whole day. any suggestions are much appreciated.

    Hello,

    Kevin from palmOne here. I imagine you'll get a number of good suggestions from TreoCentral members. Though palmOne cannot endorse specific third-party software, you also might take a look at palmOne's Software Connection: http://www.palmone.com/us/software/
    Just type "tv listings" (without quotes) into the Search for Software box and you'll find a list of related applications.
    Many of the software titles offer free trials. Be sure that your handheld is included in the list of compatible devices shown in each software description.

    Hope that helps.

    Sincerely
    Kevin

    You can also find a website with tv listings which might load fast on the Treo. Then just bookmark that page.

    Pocket TV Browser by DoubleBit Software is by far the best TV guide app I have used. It can only update its database during hotsync but it can keep 7 days of listings (14 if you use XMLTV, but with a bit less data). I like the "original airdate" and being able to tap on any word to search. It has a few quirks on the Treo 600 like the left and right hardware buttons do strange things but nothing major. You can use the backspace key to go back.

    pockettv browser gives you up to 7 days of listings in a download. http://www.doublebit.com/ptvb/
    It's remarkably interactive as well. they get their listings through http://www.guideremote.com/Nonmembers/buy/Buy_PTVB.cfm

    There's a yearly fee of like $10 for guideremote. It's a little bit of a set-up process, but i can't live without it!

    You can use XMLTV listings for free (yes, its legal) with the beta version. Never tried it myself though.

    EDIT: hehe ido, yep. I love browsing through the listings so I can cut through the crap, get to the good stuff and avoid re-runs!

    SecondScreenTV from http://www.guideremote.com has been working fine for me but from the looks of PTVB, I think I'm missing some nice features. Has anyone transitioned from SSTV? What do you like best about it over SSTV?

    Well, for one, if you're a total geek like me, you can add a show to your calendar!!

    I haven't used sstv in a while; is it interactive? Within the downloaded timefram, I can tap any show and "hyperlink" to all showtimes; tap an actor's name and find all films/shows showing within the timeframe, tap a channel, same idea......
    I can also build a database of favorite programs.
