    I am 08108. Last night still had bad channel lineup. Sounds like they should be fixed though this morning. Do I have to rerun setup or will Tivo figure it out and update on its own?

    I live in Exton, PA and our changeover happened this morning. As of now only about 10% of my channels are correct (the ones that didn't change).

    There is absolutely no reason for TiVo and Tribune to have screwed this up. I notified TiVo a month ago that a change was going to happen in my area and that they should be ready for it. Two weeks ago I contacted them again and gave them the SPECIFIC DATE. I even received a response to that message a few days later telling me that the change had been taken care of. Both times I also sent them a listing of the the channel lineup.

    I just filed another lineup change report now. The way they've responded in the past I'm not expecting them to fix it until Monday. Until then, I'm left with SD locals to watch + USA, TNT, TBS, and Spike. I really ought to send them a bill for the TiVo & Cable service I can't use as a result of their laziness...

    Same deal here.. I called in because our CableCards don't appear to be authorized for TBS HD (552) a little while ago. The guy told me that those are place-holders for those channels which will be added to our market by the end of the year.

    Anyone else have the TBS HD problem? Shows up in the guide, but when you tune it, you get the black screen with the message telling you that you may need a cable card and to call your cable company.. That's the only channel I've got that problem on, so it's not too bad..

    And BTW, 711 / Palladia *IS* the new name for MHD. Seems like a stupid name change, IMHO.

    552/TBSHD works fine for me here in North Jersey, FWIW. That is if you consider the cheesy pre-streched HD implementaiton "fine" .

    Rerun guided setup using zip code 08055, that lineup is very close to what you have. I'm not far from you and it seems to be solid. You'll have to pick the south jersey FIOS system.

    I called TiVo support to see what was going on. They said they had no idea about Verizon changing their lineup. But I wasn't the first person to call. She gave me a zip of 19350 to try. I'm doing that right now and will report back. She did say to wait a month and then try my right zip code again!

    That's BS.

    If they take a month to get it right I'm going to go through all my credit card statements from the last couple years and dispute every charge I see from TiVo. I may not win anything but the most recent but it'll teach them a lesson about what happens when they piss of their customers after their merchant account fines them for each charge I dispute, regardless of whether or not they win.

    As I said before, there is ZERO excuse on this one as I, and I assume other Verizon customers, gave them plenty of notice as to the change. After screwing up other markets as badly as they did I'd think they'd have tried harder to get this one right. They've just been lazy.

    My zip is 19312 (Berwyn,PA) and I used this suggested zip 08055 and its very close. Quickly scanned thru all the HD channels which are now in the 500/600 range and they all seem to be there. SciFi HD at last :)

    Can someone please describe what they are seeing. Is it what is happening here? I can't select channels on the 800s. Some HD channels are live in the 500s but they are either mislabled or to be announced. Does this sound right? It's been like this for 30+ hours.

    Anyone have a working zip for the Philly area with KYW and WPVI on the right channels AND WITH guide data for those two? I tried a Wilmington DE one thinking it would be pretty damn close and it was except those two channels call signs got whacked and no guide data. They do appear to be the right numbers though.

    That's correct. Verizon switched around a lot of their channels. All the HD channels that were in the 800s are now in the 500s (maybe 600s too?). And all of the kid channels are switched as well. Disney was 222 (or around there) and now it's around 250. And those are just the ones I looked at. I'm sure they switched around more. Starting yesterday morning, when I go to put on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse that TiVo recorded for my kids, instead of Mickey, they get to watch country music. Because TiVo still thinks channel 222 is Disney. But now it's country music television.:mad:

    I tried the zip code 19350 that the CS rep gave me. But it's missing ABC and CBS in HD. This isn't going to work at all.

    Zip Code 19801 for Wilmington DE, then Select Verizon Fios PA/DE as provider and you will get the correct Guide LAYOUT for the Philly Burbs. KYW and WPVI are in the right slot, but have no guide data at all. Which leads to my other post.... Verizon changed the call signs of those channels for me from KYWDT to KYW-HD and WPVIDT to WPVI-HD. The Tivo gets this info from the cablecards/coax feed. This will break all your SP's..... if they ever get guide data. So something isn't right.

    So, are you all saying the only way to get the update quickly is to repeat guided setup? I did a "Connect to Tivo Serivce Now" in the setting area last night, but that didn't do it.

    I agree 100%, it's Friday and the change took place on Monday for me. Long darn time to get it fixed.

    These have the correct channel names but are "To be announced" having to program listing thus making them basically worthless for viewing/recording.

    304, 460 - 492, 591 (11 channels)
    511 (CBS)
    514 (ABC)

    I can live with the 11 channels taking a couple of days but 2 of the 3 major networks can't be used! Either way that's 13 channels that aren't available because Tivo hasn't done their jobs. Unacceptable. The fee we pay Tivo is for up to date and correct guide information. Right now I don't have either.

    You can do a guided setup for immediate results, or you can wait till they update your zip and it will detect changes automatically.
