My wife was scanning though the Guide today and hit a channel that she wanted to watch. The program was in progress and when she hit "OK" it only gave her the Exit option ---there was no option to watch. I told her that she could go to the next program on the channel and select it and she would get the Watch option.

This raised the question of why the Guide does not allow Watching a program already in progress.

It does. Are you sure the program was still in progress, and hadn't just ended?
The guide shifts by the hour, and I've also made the mistake of trying to watch something just ended at the half hour.

If you press the "Play" (Ctrl-P) key instead of "OK" then you should get the desired result. I'll also add a "Play" button on the screen in the next build.

I would have thought that it would allow it but it didn't. She was scaning the guide about 1:45 and the program ran 1:00 to 2:00. She "solved" it by moving the Guide cursor to the 2:00 - 3:00 program and selecting that -- it allowed her to select "Watch"
