    Please post the results. I'm waiting for someone to post that their data doesn't end at 8pm.

    Will do. I'm up to 11%. This differs from when I tried yesterday, as there was really no loading. It just checked off quickly, as well as not spending any time on 'getting info'.

    I checked my bdrm Tivo and, coincidentally, it is running a connection. It's up to 67% and started at 2:08, so I guess it's loading a bunch, as it doesn't usually take this long.

    Still - will believe it when I see the end results on one/both of these machines.

    Whew! My bdrm Tivo finished (man, 10 minutes at 99%) and moved the 'til' date from 9/9 to 9/14.

    Living Room Tivo at 87%. This took my first one at just over 1.25 hour to complete.

    But does the guide data stop at 8pm followed by a bunch of TNA? Thanks.

    Even though our Bolt guide is now 5pm 9/14, PACIFIC time -- it's still weird because it shows 4pm MSNBC, "Decision 2020" coverage of the conventions.

    And, all day in Tivo Central it shows only "In My shows", no other shows from other sources.

    edit: shows Decision 2020 for a lot of MSNBC, e.g. Monday 9/7 hours like that.

    It goes to 5 or 6 pm on 9/14, at which point it says (TBA) at the last time slot (it varies by channel), but that's the end of the guide.

    so the end of the guide data for everyone is time zone dependent

    The guide problem appears to be resolved for many; try forcing a connection.

    You still have TE4 style data. I hope it corrects tomorrow.

    Not just time zone, but regional also. Some are 2pm, some are 6pm. Those are TE3 times.

    I wonder if the guide department was moved to Asia by Xperi?

    I'd laugh, but that's a little too scarily accurate.

    Checked the online guide this morning and it's filled in to 8pm EDT on 9/14, just like my TiVo (TBA after that...) Maybe the online guide updates overnight?

    Oddly, while my bdrm Tivo updated properly with that connection yesterday, my living room one finished and was still at 9/9. But the even weirder thing was that I accidentally hit the button again and it went through the whole long (almost an hr & half) connection again and that time it took it to 9/14, like the other one did.

    What is really grinding my gears lately is that some (sometimes many) of the shows that should have 'skip' don't.

    I just wish they would find a service that knows how to do guide data and use them. It feels like these guys get paid to do a job that they're just not doing. I have to go through my 'to do' list frequently to delete the shows that are scheduled to record, that shouldn't be, and it makes me wonder if there are some that s/b recording and aren't. I'm not getting paid anything, so it's a bit much for me to take care of, yet they get paid to do a crappy job. /rant

    My guide was received at 7am and the update is reflected with Online.

    Anybody else seeing this? Bolt+, TE3, PACIFIC time zone, King County WA, Comcast.

    1. MSNBC evening listings from 9/7 to Thurs 9/10 and then Mon 9/14, from 4-6pm and 8-1am being "Decision 2020: Republican National Convention?

    2. In TivoCentral the 4-pane-at-top "suggestions" (which I never use anyhow) only displays "In My Shows" items, no Tivo-generated items.

    Have done multiple (maybe 10) manual connections but always like this.

    New: ok, manual connex just now (10.55am) two shows populated correctly, so now it's 4-5pm and 8pm-1am are still wrong.
