The guide has the show listed as "Comedy Central Programming" so it's not recording.
Not for me. I actually have detailed info on the guest which is unusual.
It looks like today's daily update from TiVo removed this info and replaced it with generic programming data. Sadly this is the norm now. Hopefully my box made a connection this morning before TiVo screwed up the data.
Also says "Comedy Central Programming" for me... I just connected to get the updated channel listing for NBC in Boston.
Yet another lineup issue submitted. That's 6 in less than 2 weeks.
It did record without intervention. It did not have SkipMode, which is unusual.
Did not record for me...reliable recording is the least we can expect from our TiVo.
It probably recorded since my daily fix was very early. Just luck.
Daily fix. No pun intended.
I was watching TDS last night live when I noticed the generic description. Then I noticed that @Midnight was listed to start at 11:30pm, which was wrong. TDS ran at least 3 minutes past the half-hour. I suspect tonight's end-time is going to be equally fluid (and listed incorrectly).
For next week, my guide does list TDS but as ending at 11:31pm. I'm padding my @Midnight with an additional 5 minutes now.
Gracenote also indicates 11:30, so Comedy Central is sending out bad data. I've added padding. Thanks.
I had to record it manually - it didn't get fixed in time for me. I didn't think to pad it though. Damn! I hope we didn't miss the end of @Midnight.
Bad data happens. However, last night's failure path is unacceptable. In the past, you'd see a generic program description and a recording would be made. You might have to groom the To Do List or delete a lot of repeats, but at least you didn't miss an episode.
A failure path that misses recordings is unacceptable.
Checking yesterday's guide after this morning's update does show the "Comedy Central..." title, so mine recorded by an accident of scheduling. Pre-Rovi we never saw that specific program name. I can't recall TBA either, but I only display a small subset of channels. I watch my System Info screens along with the To Do List.
This was actually the reverse. The guide data was correct and then TiVo made an update to the guide data the day of airing that broke it. It was a crap shoot whether or not a specific box recorded or not depending on when it made it's daily connection.
Technically if someone checked their To Do list at 10:55 PM at it was still scheduled, it would have not recorded if the box finished indexing between then and 11 pm. That means you have to basically see the recording start before you can be sure it will record.
I don't understand how they can consistently get this stuff so incredibly WRONG!
Practice, practice, practice.
