    Back when we started getting Rovi data, there was a widespread problem of large chunks of missing guide data. After much complaining, it seemed that the problem was mostly eliminated.

    I've noticed that the problem is back again. Perhaps not as bad as it once was, but right now on NatGeo Wild, Monday 4/16. at 7:00 PM CT-1:00 AM CT, it just shows blank one-hour slots, and if you select the slot, it shows "Title not available." And on Logo, starting at 6:05 PM CT-11:00 PM CT, same thing, but with half-hour blank slots. And on Nick, from 8:00 CT to 9:30 PM, and again at 10:00 PM-11:30 PM (but it knows that "title not available" is apparently new!).

    Is anyone else seeing the same sort of thing, blank "title not available" programs in the guide data?

    Comedy Central is still "Comedy Central Programming" for "The Opposition..." at 11:30ish.

    The Opposition 4/16/18

    I put a lineup error report in also. Last week.

    Curious: The Daily Show is missing its season and episode numbers all week.

    I noticed the blank grid slots last week.
    This week I'm finding stale data for several channels, even though it's connecting regularly.

    My hard drive is starting to fail, I was thinking of fixing it but I don't want to sink more money into this if the guide data starts to crap out again. This may be the nudge I need to move to a MythTV box!

    i believe you may be confusing a resolved guide data issue with the new normal...

    As we approach the new month, guide data quality drops. I've been watching the upcoming movie "War" on A&E. It has been a week yet it still has no data except the year. Search doesn't find it. VOX will find it. Seems like the new normal.

    FWIW, mine is up to date from connections through today. I have standard issue original Bolts.

    One thing I notice is that when the connections are early morning they often don't update. If I run it again a little later it will.

    I confess to seeing some strange updates this week. I can usually predict the changes before they happen. The last few updates have been out of pattern.
