    Yep. Lineup request filed, though lately they don’t tend to process them. I get responses to my lineup requests telling me to file a lineup change request.

    It might be time to call up and escalate. Might take a chunk of our time, but we're paying for this so we deserve accurate guide information. (I did lifetime services myself, which is still the same thing.)

    Looks like the TOONAMI block isn't fully complete this upcoming weekend. The music video as of right now says Cartoon Network Programming.

    Gracenote looks like saturday night is a marathon of Rick&Morty which preempts all of Toonami.

    We need to do a lineup report.

    maybe i misread it or Gracenote updated, but now it has the Rick&Morty Marathon for the following Saturday, Sept.25th.

    this Saturday's Toonami listings looks to be partially correct on the Gracenote grid.
    For example:
    Food Wars! #4.05 "You're Through" is the next in sequence, but the listing is not marked with their usual "new" tag.
    However, My Hero Academia has only a generic description. Maybe it's Gracenote that needs a nudge as well.

    I don't know why it's not flagged on their end. A 30 minute episode shouldn't be four and a half hours long.

    New & Reruns is the way to go since sometimes I think they'll assume it's a rerun because of the Japanese first aired date.
    Some of my Assassination Classroom recordings will have the NEW tag, and some don't.
    An example would be "End-of-Term Time" which has the original Japanese first aired date of 5/1/15 and is labeled as a rerun.
    The next episode "School's Out/1st Term" doesn't appear to have a first aired date, but does have a NEW tag.

    In my opinion, if it's new to the American market, it should be labeled as NEW. It's up for debate if it's new to TV... that is, if it's been on streaming and is finally getting a TV premiere. Even more contentious is when it's labeled NEW because it's new to the channel, but has been broadcast on other channels, regardless of first aired date.

    I just got done tripling (three times TiVo Service Connection) and no luck on getting updated for the TOONAMI block. We shouldn't have to work this hard to get something fixed when we pay for this service.

    The episode isn’t 4.5 hours long, there’s just no guide data between 12 and 4 am. When that happens the guide extends the prior program out to fill the gap.

    I submitted a lineup request, but don’t have much hope that it will be fixed. I’m still trying to get them to fix my channels, which for some reason they decided to remove a bunch of SD channels and add other ones that aren’t even if my lineup.

    For lineup issues regarding missing channels, it might be worth a call and maybe even escalating. Don't let them be lazy.

    As for TOONAMI, it is fixed, sort of, on my end.

    Food Wars is listed as "You're Done for; Fool" for the episode title on mine. When I submitted the lineup request, I told them "You're Through" because that is what is listed in their metadata already. Idiots. It's right there when doing "Explore this show." How hard is it to link to something that already exists? It pollutes their metadata/whatever with garbage when they do stuff like this. Hopefully it will be fully fixed by this weekend.

    fyi, this wiki page shows alternative translations for the original Japanese episode titles.
    List of Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma episodes - Wikipedia

    For example, both "You're Done For, Fool" and "You're Through" are correct and interchangeable for s4e05.

    Except, if you go to Food Wars!, Explore this show, Episodes, show (all), Season 4, Episode 5, it shows "You're Through" for the episode title. Since it already exists within TiVo's own system, it would make better sense to stick with what's there, especially since it's an acceptable alternative title. This is my personal opinion as to why "You're Through" would be the better decision.

    Last Sunday, TiVo botched the end time for Shazam!. This upcoming Sunday, with Man of Steel, it's even worse, since it needs an extra hour, not just 30 minutes like Shazam! did. (Shazam! needed a 150 minute "container" whereas Man of Steel needs a 180 minute container... for all those commercials.)

    Hopefully a lineup report will fix it in time so others won't be disappointed.
