    I’ve had Sunday 12/15 filled with multiple To Be Announced listings since that day first appeared on the guide. Overnight, without a service connection, those listings appeared to have filled in. Has anyone else experienced this? I’m wondering if I should stop forcing connections to fix guide issues.

    Separately, I had a guide problem earlier this week that was not fixed by a connection: Wednesday night’s South Park slot showed as To Be Announced and never updated. I had to schedule a manual recording.

    Comedy Central is not a good example. I have a wishlist for "Comedy Central Programming" since it is frequently missing. But TBA is different. Something is wrong with your guide. I would complain to TiVo: Report a Lineup Issue or try a nearby zipcode.

    I recently had a "delayed fix" to a "To be announced" situation, where my TiVo Guide didn't fill in until some time (less than half an hour) after a forced service connection and the loading of the data was complete--I suspect that it simply was the time that the box needed to process the data internally (it had been a full Guide data download).

    That could be it. Perhaps I just didn’t wait long enough after the last service connection to check.

    This and next week’s South Park are fine. I will see if the problem recurs.
