    No update today, they had a win streak going there for a while.

    You're setting your expectations too high. I've stopped posting about minor problems. Yesterday I would usually get two days of guide extension. I got one. Today I may get one or two. On my TE4 box Sunday is usually my two day extension. This week is "off" since I had to restart most stuff due to the b update. Next week's late night is still missing guests. As long as I don't miss a recording I feel I get my money's worth. Things could be worse. :)

    Probably all three are incorrect.

    where is the 3rd? I only have 2 CBS stations available and the late DH game kickoff is at 3:25
    Singleheader late games kickoff at :05 after the hour

    You listed 3 start times. I'm guessing none will be the real time.

    I noticed that last night’s SNL had an episode title of “Harry Styles”, which makes sense since he was the host and musical guest. Yet the description says “While Kristen Stewart hosts, Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, Will Champion and Phil Harvey perform the songs Orphans and Everyday Life.”

    I guess Tivo is just copying and pasting show descriptions now since that was from last week.

    I got that too.

    NBC Macy's Parade coverage is just an hour this year. After that is "To be announced" and then regular programming for the affiliate during what would have been the third hour.

    We have a local parade on another station but I had to set the Roamio to record the usual soaps. I think it airs during the soaps because football comes after it.

    after opening my ticket monday night, they sent a full guide download tonight (saving me a cpi & tdl, thx!) with lots of fixes - filled in my guide holes for 11/28 & 11/29, corrected the run time for the macy's t-day parade on nbc (from 1hr to 3hr), and removing multiple duplicate recording entries from the tdl for eps 5 & 6 of sho's back to life - all in all, a good update night. :up:

    Macy's Parade was corrected. I didn't check on the local parade.

    Edit: I saw the local parade listed correctly last night after I saw it advertised.

    aah ok, I see other people were having recent probs too.. usually I don't pay too much attention to anything more than a couple days out, but happened to notice prime time on major networks was basically empty (not all 'to be announced', some even weirder things) from next Monday on.. waited several days. it FINALLY filled in I think yesterday.

    weird.

    meanwhile over on Gracenotetweets they are talking about "how descriptive TV and movie metadata can help OTT services increase content consumption, improve viewer engagement and optimize user experience." I'd amend that to "accurate metadata" if anyone at Rovi wanted to attend a webinar.

    Gracenote is awesome. I wish Tivo would start using their data.

    ok, with tonight's update, another 2-day "upcoming" hole for a few channels 12/7 6pm - 12/9 6pm, for the 3rd time in the past month, and i'm beginning to worry there's something wrong with my tivo.

    first cleared thumb ratings & suggestions, then performed a cpi & tdl to see if this helps (fingers crossed). :praying:

    Early morning update came with a message to stay up until midnight when BF deals start. As if.

    This has been a sore spot ever since Rovi bought TiVo and forced us to start using their guide data(hence the Nathan Fillion graphic above). TiVo used to use Tribune which, while not perfect, was MUCH, MUCH better than what we have now.

    I still can’t figure out how Rovi made themselves into what they are with the pathetically bad guide data they built themselves on and what we get stuck with having to deal with now.
