    On my Tivo Bolt, when I am searching the Tivo Guide for movies to record, I often press "OPTIONS" (the little round "A" yellow button on the remote). Then I press "C" (the little round red button on the remote) to access "GUIDE OPTIONS." Then I select "Movies." Lately, the Tivo Movie Guide has been MISSING the names of the all the main actors! It only lists the mostly unknown supporting cast, but no famous stars.

    EXAMPLE #1: Today while using the Movie Guide Option "C," I clicked on "Dirty Dancing" and the TiVo Movie Guide only listed supporting actors Charles Cole and Tom Connold. NO MENTION of Patrick Swayze or Jennifer Grey! (VH1-E at 5:00 pm on 2/7/2020)

    EXAMPLE #2: "Pretty Woman" has no mention of Julia Roberts or Richard Gere. Instead it lists the stars as Abdul El Razzac. (on VH1-E at 7:30 pm on 2/7/2020)

    EXAMPLE #3: I clicked on "Beetlejuice," and no mention of any main actors such as Michael Keaton, only the bit players.

    I realize that I could press more INFO buttons to get the names of the movie stars instead of the supporting cast, but the CAST is one of the main things I use in deciding if I want to see a movie. Does anyone know if Tivo plans to correct this situation?

    Might be a Bolt problem. Works on my Roamio. SD and HD. I didn't check the others.

    Works fine on the Bolt I have.

    Main stars are shown for all movies.

    My Bolt just started doing the same thing. Pressing Info button while watching shows a list of supporting actors in the bottom right. Have to go deeper to find the cast. My Bolt is my 4th TiVo and I still have a Premiere running in my basement. Both have had glitches happen in the past month. My first issues since my first TiVo Series 2 bought in 2005. I guess that's a good track record but a bad sign of the future?

    It’s no a Bolt, EDGE, Roamio, etc issue, is a guide problem. Mine too have the issue. Twice did the Guided Setup and doesn’t fix it. Has to be a software bug after they included their annoying streaming channels in the guide. TiVo will fix it in 18 months when people get tired and begin to drop.

    I never even look at the cast but my father went nuts about it and asked me what the hell is going on. You can get the whole cast from the more info tab but just pressing info once does not give you the stars

    I noticed this issue also and they still have Russian names as actors.
    TiVo never seems to fix anything on the DVRs anymore

    Any fix yet for the incorrect actor names on movie listings? My Bolt did this a few months ago and got sent a new dvr. Now a few months later, same issue. Sometimes the actor names are all foreign for a well known American movie!

    I have the same issue. 2 Roamio Pro units have no issue whatsoever, this is only on the Bolt.

    Listing all the unknown actors as the cast is a problem you wouldnt think possible!! I have tried to settle arguments about who is in a particular movie...bzzzt! Not thru Tivo. Such an odd issue-no cast leads..just "man on corner" and "female #2".
