    Looks like the hamsters still are not back on the wheel. Just got a Tivo Edge (I'm a glutton for punishment) to go with my Roamio+. Both have Cable Cards.

    I have had NO updates to the guide past approx 7PM. EDT on Sunday 7/19/20 on either box.
    Verizon Fios digital PA/DE has info into Wednesday, 7/22/20

    Finally got an update yesterday evening after 9PM Central, TE3. I forced a connection. Now goes through July 22 6PM. Before info was only through July 19 6PM. This seems to happen occasionally (on TE3), can fall 3-4 days behind normal.

    Update come through and it's back to TE3 format (no TBA at the end). SI has 7/21, 7 days from last Friday.

    BTW, TE4 never missed a beat.

    Has it ever? I've been really impressed (and surprised, frankly) with how reliable the Nu-Look TE4 data has been...

    I would be very happy if they duplicated the TE4 guide to TE3, especially if they add the 3 times/day updates. It's still an "8-day" guide, but usually better data for those 8 days.

    I also have had a strange issue with the guide...so what else is new...on my Premiere 4.
    The guide data ran out for July 14-16 but 17+ was OK. Well, I forced a connection and after an hour and a half the guide did update...but a bunch of OP's were very messed up! We counted on the TIVO's to get us our shows and the Premiere XL4 in the other room seems OK. I guess with everything going on we can say it is just TV, but somehow it would be great if guide data can be up to date. My issue just had to do with several days missing, and then picking up again!

    Finally got an update on my TE3 Roamio this afternoon—four days of guide extension! (After 1 day of new data but no extension, and 2 days of no new data at all.)

    Has anyone else noticed the guide data doesn't seem to be connected to tivo service connection anymore? For instance i got my data update between 10 and 11 pm last night like usual as of the last few months, but at the time the last tivo service connection was around 1:30pm.

    Since the release of v8 the guide updates are three times per day. Service connections no longer update the guide. Also the update is daily, so every morning I wake up to a new date in System Information. Subsequent guide updates just extend the TBA at the end. I like it.

    BTW, those three times are fairly fixed. A power cycle or any restart has no effect on the guide. I don't like that I can no longer watch the update in progress, but it will display "in progress" if the internet access is lost.

    I’ve been seeing overnight updates since earlier in the year. I wonder if I was a TiVo test case (if they even do it). I like the new update system—new info at least each morning.

    Edited to add: As soon as I posted this, my TiVo is now showing “To Be Announced” on every channel after tomorrow. I’ll see if it’s fixed by tomorrow morning. Perhaps not coincidentally, there was an update this morning. I didn’t check the version number before, but I now appear to be on 21.9.7.v10

    My guide is empty beyond July 21, saying no data. Not that there are many new shows to record but I don't remember it going this long without guide information.

    Current production is V8, so if your have V10, something broke.

    With V8, guide updates are done by one process three times per day. Service connections are still once per day and have a different schedule.

    Now my guide schedule is back to normal, with guide info through 7/28, 7:00 p.m.

    I have sometimes reported updates first here, so perhaps I’m on some accelerated track. In any case, I’m on TE4(Hydra), version 21.9.7.v10-840-6-840

    Mine is up to 7/28 but none of the data is actually accurate, but that is par for the course this fa r out.

    TE4. I default to TE4 answers anymore unless something points me to a different direction.

    BTW, I check "Known Issues" daily since TiVo seems to be using it in place of release notes. They have dropped the ID numbers but added resolutions.

    Am I the only one missing a block of programming from 5:00pm 7/25 to 5pm 7/26? Normally I wouldn’t care much, but there’s a rare movie airing that I am trying to set a recording for. TE3

    My TE3 actually failed it’s scheduled Friday call at around 1:30 PM EDT. First time I’ve seen that in a long time. I forced a call around 5:30 pm and ended up with 14 days worth of data.

    No problems for my region. Or should I say no new problems.
