    That's 11-1 for me. Thanks. ABC does a bunch of behind-the-scenes stuff, interviews, and commentary about some irrelevant football game. We're here to see the floats! We have no idea what's being left out when they do all the other stuff. ABC also has never shown an equestrian unit except maybe once. It's not that important to me, I suppose, but it wouldn't be New Year's Day without the Mexican guys who do the lasso tricks.

    And it happened. I have recorded the shows scheduled to air on New Year's Day during the Rose Parade. I never asked for these to record.

    Looks like the garbage Rovi guide data strikes again in the SF Bay Area.

    I'm getting "to be announced" here on Comcast in the South Bay on numerous channels: 9, 10 (both of those are PBS), 56 (CNN), 53 (Nick, don't care), 5 (local CBS affiliate). Earlier today, I tried forcing a network connection when I noticed TBA on 9. It didn't help. Not sure if the rest of the problems I'm noticing just developed.

    Thanks! It hadn't gotten any better by itself by around 11:30 pm so I tried the above. Seems to have fixed the problem.

    I'd have not known to do this as my previous older TiVos never (if memory serves) have never hit this. For me, older spans Series 1, Series 2 SA, Series 2 DirecTivo and TiVo HD. This is my first and only Bolt+.

    when you see multiple channels and days "tba" or "upcoming," the guide data has become corrupted, it would have generally self-corrected in a few days, but this forces a correction immediately - happy it worked. ;)

    There has been some really bad guide data for the past two weeks. Sometimes my guide ends at 7pm. I did a CPI&TDL on my first observation of the crap, but now I wait a day since that seems to fix it. Maybe tomorrow things will get better. Almost all the "2020" seasons have been fixed. :rolleyes:

    A pattern has developed for me. I get a day of data that System Information says it goes to 1/1. But when I check my guide the data ends at 7pm on 1/1 and everything from 12/31 at noon is generic or TBA. Tomorrow I will get my "standard" update that gives me complete information on 1/2 and extends valid data to 1/3 at noon. It's a repeating pattern on all three of my Roamio except the TE4 box which has valid data on the shortened day. I hope this doesn't last too long. This is almost like the guide on my Premiere.

    I don't know when the change happened but I checked and last night Carson Daly was shown on NBC. The parade was to be shown on NBC as well. Though I had set the Roamio to record what was said to be on previously, neither would do it until I said to record.

    I see they finally got the NFL playoff games in the guide and moved some of the other programming around. Happened some time this afternoon as the Roamio updated around 9:30am with incorrect info but the HD updated properly after its update around 12:30pm today.

    Force connect on the Roamio and now its fixed.

    I got nothing today and next Monday has some wrong info, but I'm sure they'll fix it in time.

    we should be thankful we advanced 7 hours in the right direction? :D

    i was generally caught up on new year's day, at the moment i'm 2 days behind, and my friday connection lands between 4pm & 5 pm - i'll compare our results and post.

    Thanks. No late night except Comedy Central. This has been happening to me a lot. I first saw it last November. Tomorrow, to get even, I will need about 60 hours of data. As if. :rolleyes:

    48 hours of data (normal). But still ending at 7pm on last day. Only some of late night fixed.

    I noticed something new when I filled out the line up form. Now it wants you to tell them where you got the information that their guide is wrong. I just entered Gracenote.
