Why cant tivo fix this problem?
I think the problem is on your side. Force a network connection and see if it fails...
I had that issue last year, and tried to fix it myself... I bricked my TiVo HD... Make sure you call tech support and let them know whats going on before you try to do anything.
Reboot your Tivo. That will likely solve it.
I know rebooting it will fix it but why cant tivo just fix the the problem. I think its becouse of the tuning adaptor.
Program info download depends on a stable network connection. The TiVo can't fix your network when its down. 9 times out of 10, your TiVo will automatically connect just fine and download the latest program info. However, if it just so happens that your network is down when the TiVo automatically connects, you'd get the error that you're getting.
Like earlier folks have said, just manually force a connection and all should be well, assuming no problems with your network.
Just started getting this problem today. Status showed successful connection earlier this morning. Forced a connection and I watched it succeed. It still shows the message. I'll force a reboot when we don't have something recording and see if that helps.
Indexing of the updated guide data will take several hours, so a successful connection that got the latest and greatest guide will take several hours for that warning to disappear. If you're lucky the warning will actually start increasing the date.
Why would the tuning adapter affect your network?
Its not a network problem it has something to do with garbage collection file and the tuning adapter.
GC: is the garbage collection in system information.
I dont have that problem.
This is not necessarily true. Once a year or so, my S3 will get into a mode where it will not connect to the TiVo central server, even if I tell it to do so manually. I don't have to reboot the S3 to get things to work again, but I have to run through Network Setup (or whatever it's called - the menu option that allows you to select an available wireless network and enter its password). Once I do that, I'm good to go.
There's a thread here that discusses the problem:
It's not a network issue...
Tivo needs to fix this. How hard can it be to update the firmware to fix this?
also i hate rebooting my tivo. it stresses me out everytime.
I agree they should fix it and I don't like having to reboot my TiVo either, but to satisfy my curiosity, why does rebooting the TiVo stress you out?
Im afraid it might not boot up or get stuck in a powering up reboot loop. I hate when that happens,
Since forcing a connection last week, my S3 has been fine.
Until yesterday; now it says runs out on 27July.
Again a force connection seems to have fixed the message...
Yep, been having this issue for a while now, incredibly aggravating, and I don't like to reboot my 4-year old Series 3 either, for fear something breaks during the reboot process.
Do you have a Tuning Adapter connected to your S3? If so, there's a thread in the Help forum that might be relevant.
