    You know, like the rest of you, I find it quite infuriating that I submitted the lineup changes to TiVo using their lineup issues form over two weeks ago to inform them of this change. Sure, I can use an alternate zip, but it screws up my sports listings and I really shouldn't have to.

    All I can say is "my wife and kids are pissed!"

    ... and that makes my life difficult.


    Pony, tell ops to get there **** together! You are taking quite a black eye on this one and it was entirely preventable.

    Just checked zap2it.com for my zip outside of Philly and it looks like the realligned channels (somewhat) are now showing. Most notably STILL missing are ABC and CBS. They don't have channel numbers???

    I just called TiVo again because the zip they originally told me to use is missing channels. Now they tell me to use 19061. I'm setting it up now. Ughh. This is so frustrating.

    i have the opposite problem. comcast has 'coming' lineup changes but sent the info on the changes already, so half of my season passes are wrong (they were assigned to OTA channels) and comcast has no idea when the changes they already sent info about will actually occur.

    gotta love comcast.

    Thanks. I'm on 08055 right now. Everything looks good. Of course the zip code tivo gave me was not quite good enough. Again. I wasted about 2 hours calling them and getting "wrong" zip codes from them.

    I have the updated guide in zip 18901. Came through yesterday (Saturday) during the day.

    I had switched one of my boxes over to 08055 (which I have now switched back), and can't wait for Verizon to update the network hardware in our area to get the extra HD channels they have. FX in HD would be nice.

    Since I ranted, I'd thought I'd post that as of the 1:30 call this morning, the channels lined up correctly. Zip: 19320

    My tivo picked up correct guide data this morning in area code 19460. I also noticed that Speed HD & Travel HD are there, but weren't listed on the guide sent by Verizon. Speed is black at the moment, but Travel channel is good to go.

    19380 is working, Speed HD is dark as well.

    On the bonus side, we picked up HistoryHD and SciFiHD, among others.

    I'll have to check tonight to see if 19425 is working. I switched over both of my TiVo's to 08055 so I wouldn't miss anything.

    I've been getting bounced around all over Verizon with this problem. Finally tonight, I spoke with a guy who's been by far the best person I've spoken to over at Vz to date. That said, my TBS HD still does not work.

    Verizon has blamed everyone from TiVo to the Tooth Fairy, but my 552 remains black with the "You may need a CableCARD..." message. I've got guide data for TBS HD, my neighbors get TBS HD, my friends in Cherry Hill and Medford get it as well. It's blindingly obvious what the problem is -- my cablecards are not authorized to tune 552. I've explained this until blue in the face, but they just don't get it. I had one guy tell me that I should just sell my TiVo and get their sucky DVR. I did have one guy tell me that the VZ DVR is very much inferior to TiVo, and they should just work a deal out with TiVo like Comcast and DirecTV. :) Another one over there suggested I call in and ask to have my 2 single streams replaced with a single multistream card.

    So, what I need to find is someone with 2 Single Stream cards in a TiVo HD or S3 in Marlton, NJ (08053) that can tune TBS HD (552). Reply here, PM me, whatever. I'll be in your debt.

    Here in Bethesda MD, (suburban DC) The entire FIOS channel lineup changed at midnight 9/22. Great additions...including a lot more HD channels.

    I have two Series 3 HD Tivos, each with two cablecards, as well as a cablecard in my Sony XBR HD set.

    The TV, using its own cablecard, shows correct info on all the new channels...CNN HD on 600, etc.

    But both Tivos are still on the old channels. So when my daughter's season pass of "The Suite Life" records, we get BET instead.

    I sent Tivo an email about it...doubt I'm the only one!

    I see by reading this thread that it should take a couple of days...I'll report back when it's all A-OK.

    Bethesda,...
    And their phone support people are as dumb as a bag of hammers on this. I just wanted to know a couple of the channel number changes so I could do manual recordings... but NOOOOOOO, they're too eff'ing stupid to even be able to tell even that. Grrrr.... and their website that does lookups by zipcode is BROKEN.

    WHEN will the Tivo lineup make the change? There are a LOT of channels that have been shuffled around. Will this require re-doing all the season passes? I seriously hope not....

    Meanwhile, WHEN WILL WE GET THE RIGHT GUIDE DATA?
