    I checked Zap2It and my zip, 55408, looks right. They use the same guide source as TiVo. I can't be bothered to repeat Guided Setup again.

    Was the date of the real change ever figured out?

    I was told 10/19 on a few occasions by Comcast. Nothing changed here in 55417.

    There's a notice on my condo mailroom bulletin board that says November. They're scheduling a date for appointments for everybody who will need a special box after the switchover. The date isn't given on the notice, but it will be some time in November. If I get something more specific I'll pass it along.

    10/19 appears to have been when they moved some of the music choice channels to the 400s in preparation for the bigger move, at least in Minneapolis. It also coincided with when 55407 went back to being correct for me. I reset and hopefully everything will go smoothly from here on out. Now if I could only get the digital adapters to work on my other TV's!

    They're starting to hand out the new channel line-up cards, although still no specific date beyond "November".

    For a couple of weeks now, on some analog channels (that will be going digital only, like ESPN), an overlay top banner scrolls across the display warning us about needing a DTA, but no specific date.

    Just got home to a big "the following channels have been added" message, but both tuners are recording right now, so I can't check if the changes are real. Lots of HD channels in the 800's.

    Yikes, that doesn't sound right. If the change has been made, your recordings should be on different channels. If it hasn't, you should be recording the wrong stuff.

    Mine are still the old line-up. You might want to check your recordings...

    Well, I checked a handful of channels and got "channel not found". I quite writing them down, but here's part of the list: 136, 504, 621, 622, 630, 635, 636, 637, 644, 646, 649, 653, 670, 680, 687, 689, 810, 814-897, 900...

    At least the message did not say anything about deleting any channels.

    Anyone else?

    Mine is still as normal. No changes, either real or imagined...

    The last time I got that message (which caused this thread), TiVo thought all the channels had changed but nothing had, which meant everything would have gotten mis-recorded if I hadn't noticed in time to fix it before the evening. Did your recordings go through all right last night?

    I haven't actually checked, but as I got no "channel deleted" notice, I think I may have two of many channels.

    Yup, for some channels, I have two HDs, TNT and SYFY for sure, but flipping back and forth between the 400's and the 800's, I can't say they are all duplicated. I fact I see MTV and VH1 in the 800's, but can't find 400 HD versions? Were we getting The Real World in HD before?

    I just got a letter from Comcast saying the switch would be on 11/30.

    Well it is the 30th, does anyone know what channel #'s are new so I can test them before I redo my setup?

    Your box will show a message when it gets the new line up. You just have to wait until then.

    I changed the zip code so it is not the correct one there now. I wanted to change it back when the channels are updated. I'm not sure if I'll get an update if it is pulling info for a different zip than I am actually in...

    Are you sure it's still wrong? You can check the lineup on Zap2It (they use the same source as TiVo). Mine was switched early but switched back a few weeks later. I switched my box back to the correct zip a couple of weeks ago.
