    As creator of this thread I give you FULL permission to hijack... The fact that I am now experiencing the same problem is coincidental! ;)

    Any update on this????? Now I am stuck on "Preparing" as well!!! It's been about 15 minutes at this stage.

    If it finally got through, how long did it take to move to the next step? To go through the whole process??

    And most importantly, if it went through everything, are the channels now correct????? ;)

    Patiently awaiting your reply.

    Did you update your lineup? I let it go for like 45 minutes or so and then I unplugged it and started it back up. It went through the guided setup again and I had to choose the rebuild lineup again. This time it did seem to hang on the preparing for a long time but did move forward after 10-15 minutes (after the reboot). Now my channels and guide are looking good.

    Great... ;(

    I can't believe after all of this time we still have to go through all this crap just to get the correct channel lineup.

    I guess I'll watch some DVDs tonight!

    Mine took about 20 minutes on the "Preparing" step and another 35 minutes to process the data. Thankfully, afterward the channels are all setup correctly! Woohoo!

    By the way, I didn't see any "rebuild" lineups in my list, just the normal ones. I selected the "City of Dayton" however if I go into the System Information screen it shows that my lineup is "Digital Rebuild"

    It just keeps getting WORSE! At ~45 minutes I went ahead and did a reboot like you and started going through the Guided Setup.

    However, unlike you, my Tivo froze up again after the initial connection to the Tivo service. So I am rebooting AGAIN... This sucks... Why do I have the horrible feeling that I am going to end up with a brick at the end of the night??? :mad:

    Finally up and running! It's 1am... I had to re-do all of my season passes as they were based on the old lineup. There was no intelligent mapping going on. Didn't want to risk it. Then had to go through and prune out all the channels I didn't get or want to see. Many duplicate channels under the new system.

    DLFL: USA HD 1201 looks just fine for me. Some old James Bond flick from 1967! No glitches at all...

    Day 2 still no updated channel guide.:( Since I only have a few recordings in the summer I am going to wait it out. Redoing Guided setup seems to be quite a hassle for those who have gone that route.

    Reboot your tuning adapter, and you'll get the new lineup. Mine stayed with the old for an extra day until I did that. I assume it would have indefinitely until I rebooted the TA. Of course, you could wait for Tivo to have the correct guide data and then reboot it.

    No need to redo season passes. I have 113, and all are still working fine. It doesn't matter what number the season pass says. All that matters is that the channel name is the same. I still have some season passes set up for off-air channels from before Time Warner offered them in HD, and they work as well. Just look at View Upcoming Showings, and you can see that things will be recorded.

    It still takes a bit, but you don't have to redo guided setup. Just change your channel lineup.

    I only had about 10 right now...

    Plus, can you be 100% sure that Tivo would record the HD channel??? If there are multiple possibilities how do you know it would always pick HD?

    I just felt better knowing that the SP was made with the correct HD channel.

    Call me crazy!?!?! ;)

    The HD channel is a different channel name than the SD. So if the Season Pass is set up for USAHD, it will record USAHD and not USA. If it is set up for USA, it will record from any of the USA channels available in your lineup. I don't think it matters what the season pass is on. At least I hope that is how it works. I'll find out soon enough.

    That said, it appears that not all of my season passes have remapped to the right channels yet. Everything was good last night, but some of the ones later in the week haven't shown up in my To Do list.

    You're crazy ... :rolleyes:

    Season passes work from the channel ID (i.e. WABCDT, SYFYHD, etc.) so re-doing SPs for channel lineup changes are unnecessary). I've previously mentioned that my SPs survived changing cable providers (Cablevision to FIOS).

    how would you change channel line-up w/o going through guided set-up? You can go through channel list and select the new channels but no new guide info.

    I got an email reply from TiVo just now in response to the Guide Data problem I submitted Tuesday, just to ping them on the lineup change. Here are the instructions they gave me to get my correct lineup:

    Note two things:
    1. It describes this as a portion of the Guided Setup.
    2. It instructs selecting the rebuild lineup.

    There is no warning (as stated by two earlier posters in this thread) that the rebuild lineup will stop updating in a few days and the process will have to be repeated with the non-rebuild lineup. :confused:

    I lost patience waiting for it to take care of itself so am doing this now. The "Preparing..." phase took 14 mins. I'm at 47% of the "Loading info" phase after about 4 mins.

    Thanks for the info. I to am tired of waiting also for something that should have happened within 24 hours. There was only one deviation from Tivo's instructions. It never asks to choose "rebuild lineup". Instead it asks what do you receive on Channel 2 and Channel 26. From this I suppose they know if you are a rebuild area. So I am at "Preparing to connect" to get program info.

    At the screen where you choose which channel you get on channel 2, etc... I was told to continue to hit "No" or choose other channel until it presented me with a list of lineups. From that list, I choose the rebuild extended basic.

    Yeah, me too.

    The entire "portion of guided setup" took about 50 mins. "Loading info" (including "Organizing...") took 34 mins. Guide data seems OK so far.
