TiVo Guide and Search updates

It's now less than 4 hours before the next Pirates/Cards game on TBS at 3pm EDT and the TiVo schedule still has not been updated. I manually connected to the service an hour ago but neither the web or Roamio guide and search function and schedule the game. I've resorted to a manual recording but it's annoying that these sports shows aren't updated more quickly.
My Charter web page guide correctly shows the game so why can't TiVo get their act together?

IIRC from other posts, the guide data Tivo gets (from another company) is only updated once a day.

Was this a game that changed last minute?

Yes it's been this way ever since I've had a TiVo. As mentioned I think they only update their listings from Tribune once per day, so you can go close to 24 hours without getting any guide update at all. It's a really poor model and I run into it every year around NBA postseason time having to resort to manual recordings because guide listings are outdated.
I think it's one of the few things some cable set top boxes do better at than TiVo, along with quicker channel lineup changes as well. ReplayTV from what I recall would do a mini update before recordings were set to start as I do remember getting < 24 hour turnaround with some rescheduled shows.
