    In January, the guide data was bad on CNN. The past few weeks, I have noticed many, many data errors on different stations.

    This past week, I've noticed several listing errors (perhaps 10 or more)! If the guide data is wrong, so is recording and searching.

    I do understand that the guide data is submitted to TiVo by the channel and then to us. So, what's up?

    This morning, around 5 a.m., I went to Channel 3, and there was Dr. Amen. The Guide said it was Nova. Zap2it Says it's Nova.

    Does anyone else in the area (South Pinellas) notice this problem? Does anyone have suggestions on how to handle it other than what I do now: just shake my head in frustration and grin and bear it? So many channels with so many errors!

    I haven't noticed any issues with the Guide data in North Pinellas recently.

    However, are you having connection issues now? See this thread.

    Interesting. I have persistent guide data problems, but I only record Analog so I can MRV. CNN/HLN is ongoing problems, and some of the others (HGTV is one I recall getting an odd recording) are cable too. I think the networks guide data is okay.

    Tres annoying to miss recordings because of lousy data.

    No connection problems at our house. But thanks for the headsup!

    I have been getting a lot of lineup changes recently, as BHN does more reorganization. Maybe something got messed up in the south lineup during one of those.

    You can use this form on TiVo's site to report lineup issues.

    Thanks WR. After a previous thread indicated they were CNN reporting errors I figured I just had to live with it.

    Having problems again with Guide Data. I get odd shows recording on analogue TV (sheesh, I never did want "Real Housewives" <g>) instead of the ones on my SPs.

    I see there was a problem last year sorta in this time slot, so perhaps it will be an annual problem?

    Anyone else notice misrecordings?
