    Normally, the next scheduled update on two of my boxes is about 3am and I will get no changes. But things are not normal anymore.

    Just FYI, I've been keeping track of how often these updates with no data or TBA blocks have been happening, and just since mid-Jan:

    1/15, 1/19, 1/23, 1/27, 1/28 (got what should've been yesterday's data + 24-hr TBA blocks), 1/29, 2/1, 2/2 (yesterday's data + 24-hr TBA blocks), 2/8, 2/10, 2/11 (yesterday's data + 24-hr TBA blocks), 2/12 (yesterday's data + 24-hr TBA blocks).

    Yeah, 12 times in the last 29 days. Great ratio, there.

    And for FX channel, I still have these random 10-hour (6am-4pm) and shorter (0:30, 1:00, and 1:30 all starting at 4pm) "FX Programming" blocks for 2/13, 2/15, 2/17, 2/19, 2/21, and 2/23 (only 6am). I mean... tomorrow? Really? The info is right on FX's website.

    So, now that they've supposedly "noticed?" I definitely won't be holding my breath for a fix. I've been a TiVo user since 2003, and it's been really frustrating and sad watching them become so unreliable.

    No new data yesterday; only advanced one day today.

    That's unusual...usually when it skips a day, it catches up the next day (or, more rarely, skips another day before it catches up).

    One Roamio without data. Two Roamio (TE3, TE4) with data. The Roamio is going to get a cleaning as soon as I backup the files.

    I see FX in my guide frequently (I only display 20 channels) and have not seen any of those. There are none in my guide, -2+12 days, at this time.

    TBA after 7 pm 2/23 on all channels now on my TE3 Roamio, so I only have data up till then. That’s 2 days less than I should have.

    I just tried to clear whatever may have blocked today's update on one of my TE3 Roamio units. It froze like the last one. This time I used the KS 76543210 which took me to Guided Setup. I had spent 3 hours making a backup. It hasn't done it's service connection yet. I'll post the results. So anyone planning on a CPI&TDL should plan on the worst.

    I think 7pm is the new normal, followed by TBA, then TNA (which may be TE4 only).

    After finishing the GS, Roamio has SI PIT: 2/24, guide data to 7pm on 2/24 then TBA until 23:59 on 2/24. A long day. Next scheduled service connection is 5am on 2/14.

    Got two days' worth today (although a little later than usual), so it's now up to date.

    Hamsters started their long weekend early, no luck today.

    Service connection at 5am today gave me data to 2/25 at 7pm. Another connection was scheduled for 8:30am and the data now goes until 2/26 at 12pm. The date in SI was 2/25 after both updates. This is on a TE3 Roamio.
    Sorry. Nothing at 4:30am on one box. Three to go. I did notice that the end-of-data in the guide is now 12pm on all TE3 boxes. I also noticed the service connection data doesn't get pushed to the guide for a long time. This has been a bug for a long time, but access to TiVo Central will fix it. In a few hours I'll have to see what happens to my other units. Saturday has always been my two-day update. So far I'm 2/25 also.

    I wish there was a way to see if any "saved" but not "posted" responses were in the forum. That's what caused the above post to be split.

    Very strange you have guide on TE3 boxes on last day to 12 PM, mine **always end** on 6 or 7 PM, depending on the length of the 6 PM show. Even TBA starts at 7 PM when those are the last guide data points.

    Similar but not identical here. My Roamio Pro TE3 received an automatic connection update this morning at 6:57am EST, and my guide is now populated with programs through 7pm Wed 2/26. However the SI still says Tues 2/25, unchanged from yesterday's update. Most notable thing I see is there aren't any 24-hour TBAs at the end of each channel's final program after 7pm Wednesday.

    I thought everyone was moving to 7pm (my TE4 had it a few weeks ago), but this 12pm across all 3 TE3 boxes (it was 1pm) was in line with my "standard guide theory". My TE4 ends at 7pm on day of SI. The 12 pm end is on the day after, so SI shows me prime time. Today (before connections) I have no TBA but all TNA on the TE4 box. I'll see what today brings.

    I think we are spending too much time on this.

    Only have guide data to 2/25 (technically 2/26 1 pm) after today’s connection. That’s at least 2 days missing. I should have data to at least 2/27.

    Yeah, same here and today's connection already happened. I figured that, since today's connection wasn't happening until almost noon that there would be updated data.

    I wonder why they are funging it up again. It seemed like it was going pretty well for a while there. :(

    Once again - Thanks, Rovi. :mad:

    In addition to the fact that it hasn't updated the guide data for a while now, I see a lot of missing and totally wrong data to boot. If I had ever done such a crappy job I would have been fired.

    It’s annoying, missed a recording of the new Godzilla movie last night and again today because the HBO schedule must have changed.
