    Currently I have the movie The Day After Tomorrow listed to start tonight at 10:30 PM and end at 11:00 PM on USA HD. My guide then shows two episodes of Law and Order SVU occurring from 11:00 PM to 1:00 AM.
    I checked Zap2It and the movie is listed correctly starting at 10:30 PM and ending at 1:00 AM. Oh Well so much for recording this movie.

    :confused: What's the problem?
    Select the movie from the guide and set it to record using advanced options. In the options, extend the recording 2 hours.

    To be fair, it's probably both. :p

    You know who that "someone" is, don't you? ;) But this can get pretty annoying, especially if you have set up to record reruns to catch the new episodes and they decide to run a few marathons every month. That's more To Do list management than most programs are worth. There's probably a clever wishlist trick to handle this, but I haven't figured it out. Some channels do update the OAD, many don't, and some only update it some of the time. If they do reset it, will they set it to the OAD for the local market (whatever that is) or will they set it to the OAD for that channel? Fortunately BBCA has started airing Top Gear close enough to it's UK OAD that TiVo treats it as new.

    It's showing correctly in my guide now for Thursday (730 to 10pm). Maybe you caught it while it was still updating? You can always extend a recording, as Steve said, or set up a manual recording. But I agree the guide data should match--I don't normally verify the end time of programs I record.

    It was a wishlist recording. I always record channels that have commercials and then I may start watching about an hour into the movie si I can skip through the commercials.
    When I finally sat down around midnight to watch the movie I noticed the red record light was out. I brought up the guide and that is when I noticed the error in the listings. I tried to connect to the TiVo service on both my TiVos and got a bunch of different network errors with each try. I rebooted the UI on both TiVos and then went to bed. I checked both TiVos at ten the next morning and both connected to the service and the guide error for that movie was corrected.
    I have had this happen a few times already since I got these TiVos last summer. The data from Tribune is incorrect as the TiVo guide does not update on a daily basis. My TiVos seem to update the guide data every three days.
