    My previous post (which I guess you were responding to) was from 2011... I don't remember how long those free services were available for but they all disappeared again eventually, right now my Tivo HD acts pretty much as if it weren't connected to broadband at all and it's been that way for at least two years I think... It can download programming data and Tivo's advertising packets but that's it.

    Does Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Pandora, etc actually work on your Rovio? I'd be interested in upgrading if they did, I thought online stuff was still just disabled across the board for Tivos in Puerto Rico. Heck I even asked a Tivo rep about this when I called on Wednesday to report the lineup change, even asked specifically about newer models and hr told me it wouldn't work on those (though I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't accurate).

    As far as the lineup change, it went live a day earlier than it was supposed to (at least in my zip code, near Caparra), when I called the rep said they weren't aware of the change and had no details so I gave him the relevant details and he gave me the normal spiel about the change potentially taking up to a week... I don't know if they just worked really fast with the 3rd party that handles the programming info or if Onelink just took care of it in the official changeover date (5th), but by the 6th (Friday) my Tivo had received fully updated info.

    You should still go into the channel list under settings and check you've got all the appropriate channels enabled/disabled tho... Tivo doesn't always get it prefect, for instance mine had downloaded info for the CW (now 96) so it was aware it exists but hadn't enabled it for some reason (so it wouldn't show up in the guide nor would shows on that channel show up in searches), just had to select it as active. Same deal with a couple others, and it didn't disable some of the now unused 800s.

    For some reason my Tivo didn't move over any scheduled recordings or Season Passes for ABC and the CW either, I think that's happened before, every other channel's recordings and passes transitioned seamlessly except those two.

    You should have threatened to cancel to get leverage to get the $99 lifetime deal to give it some resale value.

    Liberty is changing the lineups and synching Onelink lineup to liberty's. It's pretty weird, my brother has Onelink and the cable in one tivo was showing the Liberty lineup (which he then used my zip code in Caguas) and the Tivo upstairs was still showing the Onelink lineup. How weird is that? Two lineups, same house.

    You can always force a lineup "refresh" by doing the guided setup again. You go to the settings, channels, channel lst, press the ENTER key, thumbs down three times, and clear. Keep in mind all recordings will be stopped during the process.

    Weird thing, 202 which is Telemundo in High definition shows some french channel guide. I guess is the call sign liberty uses in the cable card.

    Yup, same here. New lineup didn't show up automatically. Waited 1 week and got tired of the wrong programs getting recorded so had to re-run guided setup and then everything worked fine. It was weird.
