Is something seriously wrong with TiVo’s guide data?

    That leads me to what my next question was going to be. And that is if you knew what release changed it. I guess all I can do is what to get a new release.

    But it was after April when I switched to TE4. I wonder why I haven't gotten a newer release. Is there a way to request an new release?

    I was afraid you were going to ask that. Here's the problem. TiVo's CS people are idiots. Your software version displays the current release. But the items in SI are not matching. You could ask TiVo to load the latest SW. You could lie and tell TiVo you are running a previous release and hope their servers are too stupid to notice. There are KS codes that should cause the latest software to load also, but that's a long shot. The software is stored on the motherboard so even changing the drive wouldn't help.

    You should check what the HD Menu (Hydra) software version is. If that’s the same, then I would say that the new program data downloaded is something that can be toggled on and off on the server side, similar to some other features like pre-roll ads.

    typical Tivo/Rovi

    the basketball games on FOX today and tomorrow are not showing in the guide for my local FOX (yet zap2it and titantv are correct) yet the 3 other FOX affiliates that are in Minnesota (and yet Tivo decided to out in the channel list) show properly :rolleyes:

    The last page of his SI is identical to mine.

    I've decided that I am not a glutton for punishment enough to call CS about this. Afterall, My Roamios are acting the same in this manner as they have for the six years that I have had them. Maybe it was just weird about the timing that I did convert to TE4.

    I wonder how many others are in the same situation as me.

    Funny one today. 12:05pm had The Tonight Show filling out the block that was supposed to be The 700 Club. The content was The 700 Club. My 1P made it record.

    Looks like another 2020 mistake is going away. As of Wednesday no more Season 2020 for repeating news-like programs. They seem to have their initial broadcast date at the end also, but not always.

    Watch your 1P manager.

    last nights synopsis of Fallon made me shake my head. Guess we're back to adding adjectives again in the description (plus the fact his guest wasn't Sienna Miller)

    Funnyman Jimmy Fallon interviews British-American actress Sienna Miller. Former Oasis frontman and now solo artist Liam Gallagher gives a stunning song performance.
