    I've been making sure to empty out the Deleted Items folder every day or so. Seems to be helping or at least things are working as they're supposed to...

    Guess I had this wrong. You just delete the show or delete the show from the "deleted items" folder.

    Is there a way to delete the entire "deleted items" folder at one-time? That's going to take me quite a while if I have to do this show by show.

    Please let me know. Thank you.

    To be sure to free up space I delete stuff from the Deleted Items folder. So far I haven't found a way to mass delete the Deleted Items folder items.

    Deleting them one-by-one takes quite a while, does'nt it?

    I deleted a bunch of shows which worked until this morning. Then the same message Program guide will run out on 5/2 appears.

    Yes, it does take a while.

    In your case, I'd reboot the box to get the Info Date updated this once and see if the box deals with it from here on out after you clear up some space.

    Interestingly enough, the last TiVoHD update changed the behavior slightly. I no longer get the message when it thinks only 1 week of guide data is remaining. However, I get the warnings when it thinks 2-3 days are remaining, and then of course, when it thinks it's all out. Yet, I amazingly have 2 weeks of data when I actually look at the guide....

    The reboot must have more of an effect than just deleting files. When I deleted files, the message came back the next day. However, when I rebooted the message is gone.

    How can I tell if my program guide data is back where it should be again?

    Check your To Do list to see if it goes out about two weeks and check your Program Information date.

    Been keeping the Deleted Items folder emptied out and, so far, the System Info date has been updating on its own every two or three days. Generally it seems to update when Garbage Collection happens. Suggestions, though, only generate after a reboot and only for about five or six days into the future.

    My situation must have been related to the Tuning Adapter cable card. Once Time Warner came back and replaced the TA, I no longer have this problem.

    I have been experiencing the same problem with my Series3 on TWC with a Cisco tuning adapter, two Scientific Atlanta CableCards, and the WD MyDVR Expander 1TB SATA drive.

    The guide and the todo list go into the future. The "Last Attempt" is always recent (past day or so) with "Last Status: Succeeded" displayed.

    I have plenty of space left: I have 115 "Suggestions" on the system.

    This feels like a software issue to me.

    Check your Tuning Adapter. The light should be solid and not blinking. Had this issue several times now it's been related to this item each time.

    Tuning adapter light is solid.

    Yeah, this is happening to me again on one of my two otherwise identical TivoHDs. And none of my fixes from above seem to help. A reboot solves the problem, but it has returned now three times.

    Program Info is scheduled to run out on 6/8. Though my To Do List runs through until 6/15, just like it should. I'm going to not reboot anything. I'm going to try doing nothing and see what happens when we get to 6/8. I'll report back and let everyone know.

    Started happening again on my Series3 yesterday. Last reboot was on the 27th. It's telling me my info will run out on the 9th. It just isn't updating the date. Guide info goes further into the future than the dates say it should. Tuning adapter is solid green. Last connect date is this morning. Sigh. It's just annoying.

    I also am having the same problem, it says the guide info will run out. I have verified that the guide does indeed have the full two weeks of data. I've had the tunning adapter for over a year and this is the first time having this pob. The TiVo is connecting properly. Other then that I have done no trouble shooting yet, haven't rebooted or anything yet. Just sharing.

    Well, it's 6/8. The Tivo is telling me that the program information has run out, and that no further programs will be recorded. I think it was message #60.

    The Tivo is happily recording two shows right now and has a To Do List that's fully populated for the next two weeks. So I'd say for now just ignore the messages and the nag screens at the bottom of the menus and carry on.

    It's a glitch somewhere, but it doesn't seem to adversely effect the Tivo's operation yet. And the occasional unplanned reboot will solve the nag screen problem.

    Very interesting. The Tivo properly reset itself without a reboot sometime yesterday. All the nag screens are gone and the Guide Data To field updated without a reboot. And I know it was without a reboot because the DVR diagnostic screen shows the number of seconds since last OOB something or other was at 1.7M seconds or so.

    So I guess that means just let it go and once the date passes, the Tivo will ultimately reset itself and the date will increment. I'll report back to say whether the date continues to increment daily, or if it fails to.

    The Guide Data To date is properly incrementing again.
