    I have just gone into TiVo Central and I have found that I now only have 4 options!

    Now Playing
    Watch Live TV
    Pick Programmes to Record
    Messages & Setup

    everything else has disappeared!

    The software version doesn't appear to have changed. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

    This is normal if there is no guide data for Inside TiVo or Channel Highlights.

    Half your luck! I wish they'd disappear off mine. I've hardly ever looked in either of those in the four years I've had my Tivo :)

    Hmmm.... would it be possible to write something to blank the guide data for those two options? I never use them....

    They spring to life if you use LJ's Showcase module for TiVoWeb. It provides 3 very crucial, but obvious, features which you don't get if you view them using the TiVo UI:
    1. Only show programmes on channels you watch/subscribe to!
    2. Only show programmes that haven't already been broadcast!
    3. Don't show duplicates!

    Using the TiVo UI they are chock full of duplicates, old programmes and programmes on channels you don't get - it's no wonder people don't use them.

    These options have disappeared off mine over night as well. Are these categories being withdrawn????

    This happens occasionally. Not sure why. They will re-appear shortly.

    Just noticed this morning that there are fewer top level menu options. They;re not ones I used (I don't think) but does anyone know what's gone? I think it was those TiVo suggestions but it seems like more than one item is gone. Anyone?

    I noticed this several days ago, I just logged in (hello again everyone, I haven't been on here for well over a year, but my login still exists) to post exactly that.

    Looks like Inside TiVo and Channel Highlights have dissapeared. ...Not that I ever used them.

    I would have thought it relates to the fact that there is no information for any of the channels you receive, then they may be surpressed.

    But mine has C4 information for the next week and E4 for a week beyond that - all in 'Channel Highlights'.

    I would have though virtually everybody would have C4 on there TiVo.

    I have merged to active threads discussing the same issue.

    Can those with 'Inside TiVo' and 'Channel Highlights' missing - ensure that you "Guide data To ..." date is Sunday 20th November.

    If it is not - please perform a daily call.

    If the time is now 2 hours after your last sucessful call, and the date is "Sunday 20th November" and the two items are missing - please reply here with the following:


    Your postcode prefix (ie: M15)
    The platform you are using: (ie: terrestrial only, Freeview/Topup, Telewest, NTL, Sky)
    any extra you are using (ie: TiVoWeb)

    You'll need to do a daily call before I can progress it.

    Sorry, missing something, how can I do a daily call if the number is unavailable or is this just a temporary issue?

    Indeed retrying the call worked, and the last call was at 5:36pm today and shows as succeeded, however the programmed guide data remains at Sat 19Nov.
    Will continual retrying get around this too?
    Cheers for your help.
