    Yes, but I have such a basic channel package from Cox now (TV Starter and Contour Flex, that's it) that I'm not sure any of these channels actually need the TA.

    Cox Communications Mission Viejo.

    UPDATE: Please check program listings vs. what's really on, and report anomolies to Tivo at the link supplied earlier in this thread. I've already discovered that the listings for channel 1131, MTVLive, are completely wrong. Last time this happened, they were getting the listings from MTV U.K. Brilliant. Ugh.

    I have to admit, all the guide problems since TiVo switched to the new guide provider were a significant factor in my decision to reduce my Cox package to just the basics. I pay $20 a month for Philo for all those cable channels Cox puts into its special packages now, it comes with a DVR and their listings are never wrong.

    My 2x Roamio Pros are fine now after doing the 'Not sure' option and doing VOD for channel 1 and KCBS for channel 2. I didn't notice if my TAs were happy or not. I have not heard from my wife today.....so thinking I might have gotten lucky!

    When it was out of wack, I could tell something was seriously amiss since the call letters on the channels started with a W.

    Just chiming in as well. I re-ran guided setup on 2 of my 3 tivos and selected the COX Mission Viejo option and all seems to be well. My third TiVo was already set to Mission Viejo and never had the issue. TiVo is feeling more and more like a sinking ship every year.

    nobody else watches MTVLive HD I guess? lol.

    Actually, I wish the U.S. version WAS the Polish channel. Better shows...

    So if everyone resets their channel guide how will we know when/if TiVo fixes the problem? (Or does it not matter)

    I haven't reset my secondary TiVo. I want to see how long it takes to fix this fiasco.

    Now the Mission Viejo listings look weird too. There is no current guide info for the locals. They all say "Upcoming" and start listings at 5 pm.

    WT everloving F is going on.

    I reset my Roamio to Mission Viejo last night, and the local channel guide info looks normal for the next several days (knock on wood).

    Based on the last time that Cox OC was screwed up with CBS, NBC, and ABC, I would expect this to last at least a week. I'm not going to go through Guided Setup again to switch it back to Cox OC unless Mission Viejo stops working for me.

    I forced an update and those channels look ok now.

    Yeah, I bet at least a week, but I am planning to annoy them on Twitter every day. One or two channels is one thing -- horking the entire lineup for a county is not acceptable, and the fact that they aren't making it a priority to fix speaks volumes about how far TiVo has fallen.

    If nobody fills out that ‘Wrong Listings, form, or doesn’t phone them, nothing will happen. I’ve done both.

    Because eventually the 2nd, Cox Communications Orange County Digital lineup will show up again, with the correct channel map, like it is right now at Zap2it

    I filled out the form and confirmed on Twitter that their "lineup team" (probably one person working part time at this point) has received my form.

    Have you checked your ‘One Pass’ setups? Even though we reloaded the Aliso Viejo channel map to get the proper channels back, our Vox Bolt went wacko with regards to ‘One Pass’ settings, and changed the record channel for 2/3’s our our upcoming recordings to Channel 51 SD. Which is odd, since that’s The Weather Channel, and we don’t have a single ‘One Pass’ set for 51. Even if we did, we’d set it up for 1051.
    FFS, TiVo, what the H is going on!

    Confirmed - Cox is the problem!

    Like everyone else, our channels have been mixed up since Saturday. Called Cox and pushed them to raise this to their manager, who spoke to their manager, and the service rep came back and said this is a nationwide problem affecting all tivo users, and that the problem is from Cox. They have no idea on when it will be fixed.

    How can it be a nationwide problem when the Mission Viejo lineup is fine?

    Great, guess I’ll call for a credit on our Cable Cards. The faster everyone else does the same, the faster they’ll ‘have an idea’ when the fix is due...

    It may be just a matter of time before that lineup gets screwed up too. Maybe a sabotage attempt to get rid of cable card customers in favor of their own boxes instead.
