    OK, but wouldn't the to do list correct as soon as the guide data corrected? Thats what I'm asking because I went into season passes and looked for future showings and nothing was listed there for monday night, but when I manually went through the guide and they were there. Doesn't the To Do list grab from the Guide?

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that the ToDo list is built from the index, not the guide data. Once Tivo reindexes the guide data, the ToDo list will be updated. At least this is how I presume it works.

    Basically, yes. That's why there's a gap between the time the "new" episode shows up in the Guide Data and the time it shows up in the To Do List.

    My HR10-250 has the new guide data...

    And it specifically states that it is "not' going to record 24... no reason though
    (The Guide listing entry says it won't record, but it is not in the ToDo list to tell the "reason")

    Also noticed that all of Tuesday Fox is missing from the guide, and American Idol on Wednesday is no longer in the listing..

    I bet if you wait until morning, it will all sort itself out.

    Just to answer the poster who asked what my recording history says,

    For PB and 24 it says, This program will not be recorded because it is no longer in the program guide. (For their old 8:00 and 9:00 showtimes)

    But it is in the guide, so whatever.

    I mean its actually a good thing that this happened because in our situation, our priorities flow in this order: CSI: Miami, Greys Anatomy, Prison Break, 24.

    Actually, we should have the 'serial' type shows first because it is obviously more detrimental to miss an episode of these, but we never thought about it before due to those shows being on different nights.

    I expect others may fall into the same problem.

    At the time, there were actually four threads. There's been some merging.
    That was the old episode, which was removed from the Guide Data. The new episode hadn't been indexed yet. I know you don't believe me, but it would have shown up within a few hours.

    With all the changes in scheduling due to it being finale season (burn in supersize hell NBC) and things like this speech I get anal and check my to do every morning, glad I have, I've had to adjust a few things.

    Interesting that FOX has allocated 20 minutes, and NBC 25... Methinks I'll be padding 24 no matter what.

    Any updated news on what ABC or CBS's plans are?

    As of this morning, my local networks from NY (NBC-4 and FOX-5) have been updated on my HR10-250 (DirecTV).

    However, all of my season passes are on the HD Channels, and as of this morning, 82-NBCE and 88-FOXE are still NOT showing the Presidential Address in the schedule.

    Unless the HD channel schedules are updated, you will have to manually pad your NBC-East and FOX-East HD recordings Monday night.

    My HD-TiVo has been updated - but incorrectly, I think. Right now (Sunday morning) it's showing Prison Break starting at 8:20 - but I thought the west coast would be airing on it's usualy schedule? This is for the Sacramento HD channels. The other HD-TiVo was still 8:00. I need to check which one indexed last.

    I do believe you, but I'm not patient enough and I would panic if something freaky happened and PB didn't record :)

    Like I said, no harm no foul because when it picked up the time change (and I hadn't checked my to do list), we would have gotten Grey's Anatomy and CSI, and missed 24 due to lower priority. Which is not the way we want to go. My bad for not assigning proper priorities. :eek:

    Thanks for the information!

    The President's address is not on the schedule for ABC (as of 4:31 Sunday, according to its web page). I have no experience with its accuracy, and I'll be checking HERE from now on!

    I agree that such things should be on news channels and that regular programming could have a banner to direct you there in case you want to go. I also agree that this will do nothing to improve the President's approval rating!

    The reason they do not just send people to the news channels is because there are people who only have basic cable or no cable and can not get the news channels.

    I just saw an ad during Grey's Anatomy that said the Oprah thing was going to air Monday May 22. I would assume this means that they are going to air the speech and then show the Grey's Anatomy season finale at 9:00 like they have have scheduled.

    Looks like now I'll have to decide on 24 or CSI: Miami in HD thanks to this crap! Before I had no conflicts but since 24 will go into hour 10, I'm screwed now. Something has to get bumped to the SD TiVo.
