I’m a new subscriber and I’m generally pleased with the service. However, there’s one issue that’s making me crazy to the point I may cancel. Am I crazy, or is it impossible to view the program guide with the channels listed alphabetically? It’s nearly impossible to Find anything. I know I can look for a specific channel or a specific program, but what if I don’t know what I want to watch? What if I want to scrolled through the channel and browse? I’m supposed to scroll the 3,000 channels???? That’s insane. Am I missing something here?

Sorry, but alphabetical is not an option. Numerical only.
The one thing you might want to do is to hide any channels you either don't have or have no interest in. Press the Menu button on your remote and go to Options > System > Hide Channels. This has to be done on each receiver individually.
You could also look into creating a Favorites list. I'm not a fan but some find that very helpful.
Edit: If you want to browse the programming on a specific channel, while on the Guide screen, toggle all the way to the left to highlight the network name and press enter. This is reveal just that channels programming for the next 2 weeks. You can take that opportunity to set the DVR so you don't miss a show.

do not known what to watch....
Do you at least have an idea of the type of programming, this could at least place you in the general class of programming.
Locals are double digits.
News related are lower 200/1200+ range
Animals, History are upper 200/1200+
Children programming lower 300/1300+ range
Shopping is lower 400/1400+
Self Help (HGTV type) upper 400/1400+
Sports are 600/1600+
Movies are 800/1800+ and 900/1900+ based on package subscribed to.

This is ridiculous. Every other company let’s you browse alphabetically. I can’t imagine this would be difficult for att to do. This is as subscriber-unfriendly as you can get.
