    How long should it take for TiVo to add new channels? Like all TWC users, we got NFL network on Saturday (reported in New York Times among places). Still no guide data on my box nor on TiVo.com.

    Have the replacement refs taken over TiVo as well?

    Did you force a connection? I would start with that.

    It's not that. (I've had a TiVo for over 10 years). The channel doesn't show on TiVo.com program guide. There's just no guide data.

    You have the program playing on the assigned cable channel, but no program info on the guide, right? That's common with newly added channels.

    I've had the same experience with the program guide. I had to report a line-up issue to TiVo on the tivo.com website. I also have reported it to zap2it.com which is comes from the TMS where also TiVo uses for its program data.

    It took about a week or so and the the program guide info showed up. Until it showed up, if I wanted to record something on that channel, I had to do a manual recording with date, time and channel info.

    I don't know if my line-up issue report or the just the course of events of adding a new channel caused the guide info to show up, but it did.

    I had a channel list update to the TWC Columbus OH region today when I was home for lunch that added the various NFL Network channels to my lists.

    that was my "issue"

    But it really wasn't an issue. I didn't really need guide data for the NFL Network on a Sunday.


    Out of curiosity, when does the free trial end?

    I called them yesterday and was told I was the first one to report it. Was told it would be done in a week. Surprised me given the publicity around the NFL TWC deal.

    My program information also arrived last night. Much longer than I would expect, but maybe those internet tubes were all stopped up or something.

    Less than 24 hours? That is nothing less than amazing. Tivo needs to get this data from the outside, thus it normally takes a while to have the appropriate entity push this through.

    In general, 4-5 days to see Cable Company changes reflected in 3rd party guide data is the norm. Since it was only a few channels, and they were simply added, it's not such a big deal, at least for me.

    Back in 2009, TWC did a massive channel re-organization in my region and it was torturous waiting for the guide data to update in Tivo because so many channels changed. Probably 50% of my recordings were wrong for that week.

    Here, the channel showed up w program info in the guide almost immediately.

    But, I never got the usual message about a channel being added to my lineup, on either my elite or my hd.

    I received the PTCM message today about the channels being added. (Milwaukee-area Time Warner Cable.)

    Curiously enough, the special Olympic Basketball and Olympic Soccer channels have yet to disappear. I should submit a lineup report about that.

    I got the msg yesterday, just in time for last night's game :)
    Super happy that I'll be able to watch the Bills in a couple months.
