    I went to view one of my 3 tivos tonight (Philips 704) and there was no guide data. :mad: The tivo couldn't even tell me what was currently playing on live tv.

    It appears to me it may have lost it last Thursday after a Service call. The system shows the call was made Thursday. I record the local news on that Tivo and the last recording was Thursday.

    I've got a message that says it's now acquiring data. I thought the guide data was loaded every day during the early morning hours.

    Two questions:
    1. How often is the guide data loaded?
    2. Should I reboot or wait for the guide data to catch up?

    I've been recording Survivor on Outdoor Life and tomorrow is 3 more shows I'd like to record. Guess I could record on one of the others. :eek:

    Thanks

    Reboot, then wait a good 24-48 hours for the data to trickle in.

    yea, I think that would be the safest thing to do.

    To answer your other question. Guide data is constantly trickled in via the satellite.
