    Same thing here.

    Got the message Thursday morning. Today, Friday, still using the old guide. Last connection failed with SO1 error. Next connection around 1 am Saturday.

    So I'll look for the new guide Saturday morning.

    If you are home, just reboot and connect again. That will force everything through.

    FiOS uses Gracenote.

    I use TiVos with FIOS. Not FiOS STBs.

    Unless you are saying that the TiVos with a FiOS cable card, connected to FiOS cable, will still use Gracenote? Which i wouldn't think would be the case.

    Here's something interesting, a lot of my past recordings that were stored on the TiVo's have been updated with the new Rovi program description synopses.

    You're correct. The TiVo doesn't care if you're using FiOS or a cable provider, it's gonna use whatever source TiVo tells it to use. Also, I think people were saying FiOS uses Rovi too, so those set tops would also have the Rovi program data.

    Oh, just to add, all day Thursday all my equipment was noticeably very sluggish, like it was indexing massive amounts of data, however there was no change in the indexing time/date.

    Same thing they did with the DVR.
    Software update -> connect -> S01 error -> reboot -> connect twice -> done.

    I think someone's already pointed that out in one of the 80 million Rovi threads on the forum.

    No. I may have misunderstood you. Just to be clear the FiOS STB's use Gracenotes and TiVo now uses Rovi (as you already know).

    Why in the heck would a live event be considered a repeat? If that's the case, that's a bug.

    Live events don't have a first aired date. So TiVo sees the repeats as new since they have a first aired date less than 28 days ago. It is a major bug as it breaks recording sports with OnePasses or auto record wishlists. You either have to set the recording options to record everything including repeats or manually record each sporting event.

    As a perfect Murphy's Law example: it happens that I moved this week, and unplugged the TiVo Wednesday evening, moved Thursday, but didn't get cablecard or Internet re-connected until this morning. So I figured, force a call to catch up...and then I fell into this S01/update/no-guide-data thing. It's all recovered now, but who would have guessed that it had nothing to do with my move at all?

    ETA: XL4, for the record.

    While most live events don't have a first aired date in the Rovi data, there are a few exceptions. Sunday night's "NFL Preseason Football" game for instance.

    Yeah, needs to be fixed. I added repeats and it then set to record 4+ repeats of tonight's game. That's unacceptable. At 3 hours plus an hour buffer added to ensure I get OT, this one Wishlist, which worked perfectly yesterday, will now eat up my space and require a lot of manual intervention.

    Also, as of now, I see no streaming in My Shows. I had added, manually, over 300 VUDU streaming movies. Hopefully they reappear.

    I also hope TiVo is having someone read this thread...

    Mine went relatively smooth (bolt on VZ FIOS).

    The usual necessary reboot and forced connection twice after that. Did not notice any missing or wrong channels, to do list is fine, etc.

    The only annoying thing was going back and changing "my channels" and "my favorite channels", as they were relatively messed up. I keep them written in a notepad luckily, so it took me probably 15 min

    I record "Formula One Racing" with an OP. Used to work. Now with Rovi data, qualifying and the race have different program ids. You now need two OnePasses, one for qualifying and one for the race. "Upcoming" in the race OP doesn't list qualifying, and vice versa. Also, qualifying doesn't show up as new, you need to set the qualifying OP to "new & repeats" to actually record.

    Unbelievable. Wishlists to find movies by the year they were released no longer return any results.

    :thumbsdown:
