    It appears TiVo is making an effort to keep guide data accurate for NCAA tournament games.

    I'm OTA so only CBS, but I have teams in the guide data for all Saturday and Sunday games. True even for games that were dependent on those that ended late Friday night.

    I also noticed. This was something that the old guide wouldn't get updated on time.

    That surprised me. Game showing opponents was quickly in the guide.

    Rovi must have a lot of basketball fan employees. ;)

    It's been a pleasant surprise, to say the least. In previous years it would skip some recordings simply because the description was so vague that the scheduler thought it was already recorded. It got to where I would set up all manual recordings just to make sure a game I wanted wouldn't get skipped.

    And so, not only did Rovi do well with this, but it actually has improved on the pre-Rovi days! ;)

    Was it better rovi data or did TiVo listen to prior complaints and perform extra hand holding to provide a better experience for us?

    I just did a Search on "NCAA". It found some strange entries. Three identical ones labeled "NCAA Basketball Tournament". One was a single CBS game, Saturday 6pm "Final Four". One was "no upcoming episodes". One was good with CBS and TBS games up to 3/26. My guide ends 4/2.
