    So far my Elite does NOT have this problem. GC occurs daily before the service connection.
    I am very happy with the Elite except for the HD UI:)

    How about # of recordings, # of season passes? I would not be surprised that the one that is working has less season passes.

    Is this a North Carolina problem or a Time-Warner Cable problem or a TWC-NC problem?

    'Cause this is kind of a tar heel heavy thread.

    Got an answer from dvr_dude today about the swap file.

    He says the swap file is set to 300MB, on the 2TB upgrade drive.

    Running out of guide data, problem, started on my machine before the HDD upgrade. And, coincidentally a couple weeks after Time Warner,Torrance turned on SDV, Necessitating the use of a their tuning adapter.

    The problems I see are different and even more ominous...

    I'm just not ready to spend $500 for more problems. I can deal with the current problem for a while longer. Hoping that TiVo will discover and fix it.

    This is a nation-wide TWC problem. I think I remember one person who had this problem that was not TWC, but it seems to be overwhelmingly TWC.

    Maybe NC is more TiVo appreciative overall (must be from slo-mo'ing ACC basketball:)), and that's skewing the results.

    Nice to see my "blame TWC first" bias re-confirmed, though.:D:

    My TiVo is sold and so far happy with Media Center “7 tuners fantastic”. But has anyone tried a smaller drive? With a 500 GB drive is was getting GC updates and even a few suggestions.

    Please update us going forward with your experience with Recorded TV HD. Looks interesting. I'm curious how this compares with Tivo. I absolutely hate the interface of Media Center 7, but if your interface has a nice experience, maybe that is something I would consider.

    Who here among us, with the guide data running out problem, has their TiVo hard wired to the internet?

    In my case it has nothing to do with SDV 'cause we're on analog cable, but apparently the annual Series 1 denial of data has begun, because I've got an S1 with a cache card about 4 feet of CAT5 away from the router that hasn't been able to successfully complete a connection and download since Oct. 31.

    The S2s, 2 wired, 2 on wireless G adapters, no problems getting downloads.

    The new HD, too soon to tell what its problems are, but I can ping it over wireless.

    You mean Cat 5 connected vs. wireless or directly connected vs. through a router/firewall? Mine is Cat 5 connected via a router/firewall. -- Doug

    Shielded cat 6 cables from each Tivo -> Netgear GST108T -> cable modem.

    Well, kinda. As far as the TiVo knows, it's on ethernet, but that physical cable goes to a wireless n bridge to the rest of the network.

    Yes, TiVo connected with wires to either a router or cable modem.

    The reason I asked the question is dvr_dude suggested that I connect my TiVo-S3 to the internet, via a RJ45 connection to a wireless adapter. Instead of a USB wireless adapter. I'm guessing he was thinking that there was a bottle neck in system's incoming data flow... some how causing "our problem."

    So the info above, some hard wired and one hard wired to a wireless router answers my question.
    Eccles has, the RJ45 to wireless setup, and he has the "Guide Data" problem too.
    So much for the idea that the data was not transferring fast enough over the USB connection.
    This also would indicate that TiVo's USB connections are not conflicting with each other.
