    Re: Live PD for 7/14/2017 - Mine got fixed with the recent connection. I had already scheduled it manually, anyway, in case I forgot to keep an eye on it. It seems like with this show it gets fixed that day or the day before - most of the time, anyway.

    On one of my SD cable channels I'm having no guide data until around 5pm about 2/3 of the time lately. weird. not shocking. :rolleyes:

    Live PD for Fri, Oct 6 - Some genius coded it 6-10 ( which would be 6th Oct in most other countries) so they took that as an OAD of June 10 and the Pass isn't picking it up. Maybe btwn now & then it w/b fixed, but heads up, in case.

    10/6 or 6/10. Right numbers, wrong order. Yet another season premier causing TiVo problems.

    Bad on tvguide.com also.

    Heads up, this weekend's episodes are incorrectly marked with an OAD (and title) of 2016 and will not be recorded by season passes for new only. Guess it's a good thing I never got rid of the manual recording for this one.

    Strange. My east coast feed has 2017 this weekend but 2016 next weekend. Next week will be bad due to the holiday.

    Mine for LPD has been showing 'new' and the correct OAD, yet my Pass wasn't picking up either Fri or Sat. I'm in the habit of babysitting this show now, so I found that to be the case a few days ago and set them up to manually record. SSDD with Rovi guide data. :(

    Sat 11/25 - Looks like they did the 2016 thing again. I'm only assuming there is a new episode for that night, as Friday has a new one and on Sat they also have that 6 minute 'Roll Call' thing. I don't record those, so that's why I noticed it there - while I was deleting them from automatically recording.

    Maybe it will get fixed before Saturday arrives. But I don't count on such a thing happening. ;)

    Once again they've failed to do their last-minute fixing of bad guide data. Tonight's episode has an OAD of 2016 and Roll Call's OAD is 2 weeks ago. It also missed Roll Call last night. I'll force a connect to see if it's been fixed since this morning's update.

    Even without favorable relationships with the networks, any low paid data monkey with simple tools could maintain this data better than it currently is. Obviously, the Tivo customer base isn't worth much. I understand that they want to twilight the hardware product and its formerly loyal customers. But even if Tivo is not a priority, what is? It couldn't possibly be data services.

    I know it's too early to expect the guide to not change 3 times before it airs, but currently:

    Saturday's new episode has an OAD of 2017 and will not record. Friday's seems fine with a correct 2018 date.

    Roll Call for both Friday and Saturday is again in it's own collection (382635703) rather than grouped with Live PD itself (361902677) like it normally is, so you would need a separate season pass for Roll Call (or a manual recording) if you wanted to record it.

    SSDD, eh? Unfortuntely, I've found that I have to keep an eye on it all the way until the connection for the days of airing. Sometimes they fix it and then the next day (or whenever) they unfix it.
