    HBO announced more than a week ago that the Carrie Fisher/Debbie Reynolds documentary Bright Lights would air this Sat. at 7:00 p.m., but I can't find any listing for it in the Tivo guide. I've forced an update to the box to see if the guide would update too, but still nothing is showing.

    Does anyone else see Bright Lights listed on HBO this Sat. evening? Any idea why it's not showing up in the guide yet?

    Weird. I'm in the Chicago area and the only showing I can find on my TiVo is on Sunday on HBO2. Thanks for double-checking. Guess I'll have to do this old fashioned route and make a note to remind myself.

    TiVo finds it doing a search. Then in the Guide and the To Do List it shows as Demolition.

    There have been numerous connections since they announced the show for Saturday and Tivo Guide data has not picked it up. I'm just going to generically record it, pending whatever this morning's connection does. It's a 90 minute block, FYI. 5pm on HBO East, 8pm on HBO West. YMMV for Central and Mountain time zones.

    That's what I also have on that time block. I set to record it, but am watching in case it changes. Probably the best way to go is to just do a completely generic 'time block' manual recording. That way, if they fix it by tomorrow, your recording won't disappear.

    Or watch it on HBO Now (unless you are in Comcast, of course).

    Well, I'll be damned! This morning's service call finally picked up the show for Saturday 1/7 at 5pm on the HBO East and 8pm on HBO West. Will wonders never cease! :D

    I keep checking to make sure it doesn't go away! That's how trusting I am of all this.

    Funny thing - after they finally got it on the guide, I see a line on the bottom on the Tivo Central page saying 'Don't miss Bright Lights on HBO!'. Gee, Tivo - I almost did cuz you didn't have it showing in the guide. boneheads. Yeah, I'm at the point of hurling insults with this stuff.

    Guide for Comcast Denver still doesn't show it. I do see the blurb saying "Don't miss Bright Lights on HBO!', which suggests that if the show is missing from the guide we should force a connecting to the Tivo service to update the guide data. Tried it twice around 4pm today - didn't solve the problem. So the guide data is still out of data for some areas.

    Do you see it yet on HBO2 for Sunday? That is another airing.

    Otherwise, I'd probably just set up a manual recording. To be safe, I'd do 105 minutes. I don't know your time zone, but here in Pacific time zone it's on HBO East at 5pm and HBO West at 8pm tonight. HTH! :)

    It's not in the guide for Sunday either - but oddly enough, when I do a search, it shows up as being on at 6, and lets me attempt to schedule it, but when I look at the todo list, it shows "Demolition", which is what the guide shows as being on at 6 (Mountain time). The "other showings" list is empty, oddly enough.

    This isn't really a big problem, since I'm aware of the issue and can manually schedule - just wanted to let people know that if they are having problems they're not alone.

    I will add that the Tivo guide data is usually very accurate - I can only think of three times in the last 10 years where the guide was wrong in a way that I noticed - each time it was a similar situation where the station re-scheduled something at the last minute.

    Oh yeah, that movie 'Demolition' was what was on our guide before Tivo finally updated it yesterday. If you record that you should get the show.

    I guess the good thing is that, being an HBO show and being current, it will be aired over the various HBO channels numerous times.

    Also, it should be on HBO GO, too.

    The problem with this is that it was punched into the schedule over a week ago by HBO, so Tivo should have known about it long before now. Since this new Rovi Guide Data program, things are no longer the way we've experienced them for years.

    It just hit mine yesterday, as I mentioned at that time, and I was having daily connections. It's just the new guide data thing.

    I got a reminder on my Tivo's main menu.
    Watched it- not sure how much I can say here because of spoilers.
    However, I am now obsessed with CF.
    Tomorrow I am going to the library to find any her books. What a life.
    What a talent.
