    I got the guide data and scheduled recordings were corrected to 510 after a reboot. No joy on my TIVO's.

    This is a joke and @TiVoSupport on Twitter is useless. They keep telling people to power cycle the box and re-run guided setup.

    Time to SPAM them with tons and tons of lineup change requests (everyone fill this out): Report a Lineup Issue

    Still broken for Verizon Fios in Reading, MA. Until today, I had the program info on 516 (but not shown as NBC). I had to manually re-enter all of my season passes. Today, 516 stopped showing NBC, it appears now on 510. My Tivo shows 510 as Telemundo with data for that network, instead of NBC. Hopefully, this gets fixed at some point. Then, maybe I can manually re-enter all my season passes a second time! Can't decide who I like least right now: Tivo for its slow response correcting guide data, Verizon Fios for its inability to decide on a channel number, Comcast for initiating this whole mess, or Congress for allowing them to merge with NBC's parent (great consumer experience so far). Anyhow, filled out the change request suggested by the previous post. Yuck! Hope others are having better luck.

    Still broken - FiOS in Sudbury...

    My guess is it will all be fixed Monday - they don't seem to ever work weekends anymore

    At 7 pm I forced a connection to TiVo and got a message. NBC programming is now showing up on FiOS channel 510, about time!!

    Looks like we're good. Only took 48 hours this time...but how long before the NBC logo gets moved?!?

    Good question...four days later, for Verizon Fios / Reading MA, and the NBC logo still shows on the wrong station (WHDH / 507) instead of (WBTS-LD / 510). Hope they fix it eventually. Thinking about submitting another complaint to the TiVo site.

    Sigh...had a message on the TiVo about a lineup change, that WBTS 10/510 and WNEU 14/514 were both deleted, and nothing about added. The channel list still shows them, but 10/510 now has "WBTS NBC" - not a logo, but seems like a step forward - except there is no guide data again! Forced a network connection, and still nothing...

    I'm so freaking frustrated! They finally fixed the mess with the guide data for NBC Boston on Fios, and now it's gone again. Why did they even touch it?

    ARGHHH!!! Not again - where did the guide data go for WBTS Boston (Verizon Lineup) ?? Channel 510 is still there and active so it ain't VZ. My Bolt lost the NBC guide data a last phone-home. My HDXL still has the data since it hasn't phoned home since early this AM.

    Can't you guys at Rovi stop stepping on your (feet)? For someone claiming to be a premier guide service, there are others out there eating your lunch while us Tivo customers suffer.

    Total ARGH! This is beyond frustrating. They need to get their stuff together..I'm actually really glad for the first time in a long time that my recently updated Bolt+ is not lifetime service.. I'm kinda sad that I decided to buy the Bolt+ just as this whole mess started. I should have just gone with the FiOS DVR. If this stuff continues I think I'm finally out of here. Which is sad, was such a fan in the past. We pay them for ONE thing.. awesome guide data... and it looks like they merged with a hothead of mediocrity with Rovi.

    Has anyone reported this to TiVo yet? (I haven't -- I have to hunt down the link for reporting lineup issues.)

    Oh, yes... :)

    I managed finally to catch the chat available, and they submitted the lineup report, which they say gets handled faster than when us simple humans do it. :)

    The channels have been fine on Comcast in NH, but the logos are still swapped. 807/WHDH is still showing as NBC and 810 is just showing WBTS-LD with no logo.

    I've now reported it to TiVo via the form and to Margret by email.
