Why do you expect more guide data? What you have seems about right to me.
12 days is standard, isn't it? In the 8+ years I've had Tivos it was always 12 days. (First Series 2 and now Premieres, if that makes a dif)
In the rare occasion that I've seen less, I look and find that a connection was missed, so I just forced a connection myself. But that hasn't happened since I got my Premieres and they connect via my network. With the old ones it was telephone connection and I found that that was sometimes faulty.
I see the confusion the tivo goes back 2 days that's how it has 2 weeks of data
Oh wow! I can't believe I'm JUST getting that after all these years. I remember, early on, hearing how they had 2 weeks of programming, yet I always just had 12 days ahead. Never thought about the part behind. d'oh!
The TiVo features an electronic program guide (EPG) with 14-days of guide information from Tribune Media and Rovi. The guide is customizable, so one can remove any channels they do not want to see; filters and favorites are supported. Program information is downloaded nightly and saved to the hard drive. During setup, the user selects whether they want to use ethernet, wireless, or a phone line adapter for guide downloads; the user enters their zip code and selects whether they use an antenna, cable, or both. When cable or both is selected, the user is asked to pick their provider from a list.
