    Anyone here having problems? Pixelated stations (unviewable) starting at noonish yesterday, then, this morning, one program scheduled for an hour recorded for 5 hours 10 minutes (all pixelated), and another program never requested, recorded for 5'26" or something like that.
    I thought the pixelation was BHN, but I don't see any complaints at DSLReports.
    Anyone else?

    No problems here. Sounds like a signal strength issue. Is it happening across a lot of channels? Could be the cable from the curb to your house was clipped by a lawnmower or just degraded. I've had to have BHN re-run that feed from the street a few times in past years.

    Hmm. That's a thought. It was Ch 10 at 12pm I'm hoping it's a signal problem and not TiVo.

    Thanks for the reassurance that it's not county-wide!

    I rebooted today and we'll see what happens.

    PS I'm pretty sure my cable comes down from a pole as opposed to up from the street.

    You know what I meant. ;) Everything is buried in my neighborhood, no poles.

    Hey guys, happy 2016. And this is mostly for WindRacer or other Pinellas County, FL viewers.

    Programs don't match what's aired. First I noticed was on CNN when "Race to the WhiteHouse" following various presidential races. I had to change to record all because , e.g., Harry Truman was really Andrew Jackson etc. That inaccuracy continues.

    At first, I thought it was CNN's stupidity, now I think it's my TiVo.
    Other shows are wrongly identified, either wrong show or wrong episode. Very annoying.

    My TiVos' GCs are up-to-date etc.

    So, I'm wondering, is it only here in South Pinellas or are TiVoGuides just all effed up? And further, is there anything that can be done about this?

    I haven't noticed any problems like that, but I don't record anything off of CNN. What other Guide data is incorrect? Are you using the correct lineup (I think I use North Pinellas)?

    You can report lineup issues to TiVo here: https://www.tivo.com/lineup.html

    Yes, I'm South Pinellas.

    E.G, right this minute, on CNN, I'm recording Road to the WhiteHouse again.
    7-8 is Bush Dukakis, but it says it is Truman v. Dewey.
    8-9 is actually Nixon-Kennedy but it says it is Jackson-Adams

    There are others, but they are fleeting thus forgotten. This has been happening for maybe 3 weeks (CNN)

    I'll have to start writing them down. (Just did)

    Hmmm, so you think it is a TiVo problem not a CNN problem? Thanks for the reporting link.

    Right now on CNN (9:26pm) I see "Race to the White House: Bill Clinton vs. George H.W. Bush" (Sea 1 Ep 6). "Jackson/Adams" I see from 8pm - 9pm and again at 11pm - 12am.

    Is the clock correct on your TiVo?

    Right, I came in at the wrong time above and will correct it. Just reviewed.

    Right now, 9:49 it says Clinton/Bush and it IS Clinton/Bush

    8-9 was Nixon v Kennedy

    I have 10 recorded on one of my TiVos and they are all bolloxed up. I started recording on my Series 2DT to see if they were the same, so I ran from one to the other. I'm usually asleep before 9 (up at 4a) but this started bugging me.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    That doesn't work anymore, natch, since it's spectrum now. Is there any way to reach you or are you "retired" now?

    Best

    I don't think Gary is around anymore. :(

    Are you having issues with Food Network today? All my TiVos just show this (audio works):

    Thanks. It's working again now here as well. Some temporary glitch apparently.

    He's not, at least not as BHNtechXpert. He's still around dslreports using his old handle ISPGeek. Check it out if you're wondering how he's been doing and especially if you're less than pleased with Spectrum service lately. There's some insight to be had, it helped me decide whether to say or switch providers :smirk:
