    Hello all,

    I was unable to find an answer to this specific problem. I have a used TiVo HD XL for a little over a year now. At least once per month, and often more frequently, the TiVo will report that it is running out of programming information. The only way I can find to resolve the problem is to repeat the Guided Setup. This used to happen when our cable provider (Charter in Los Angeles area) would modify their channel lineup. Now it seems to happen much more frequently. It is rather annoying since the guided setup can take between 2-6 hours.

    Has anyone else encountered something like this? Could it be hardware or software related? Not sure if I should pursue this with TiVo or with Charter Communications. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!

    You do not need to run guided setup for guide data. You can just got to network & phone/ make a Tivo connection from Settings menu, but if the running out of guide data notice keeps coming up, then a reboot is in order.
