    All shows from what I can tell. I tried a reboot 3 hours ago and it hasn't helped. I really hope this resolves itself somehow.

    So far I'm deleting the extras from the ToDo List every hour or so as they keep being added.

    Have you also contacted TiVo to report the issue?

    Rocky, indeed. This is going to be a real PITA, potentially. And there will be miffed TiVo users aplenty when duplicate recordings of higher priority shows are preventing new recordings of lower priority programs.

    Not yet. Calling them is always an exercise in frustration.

    As I mentioned in the first post, yes, but not multiple instances.
    An example would be last night's episode of "The Night Of" on HBO. It was set to record again tonight only. Once I deleted it, it hasn't come back.

    Those that have new Rovi data, are you seeing the new correct channel Call Letters in your OnePass Manager. and do the Call Letters also match on the To Do List.

    Examples:
    Gracenote data - BBC America was - BBCA
    Rovi data - BBC America is now - BBCAMHD-E

    Gracenote data - TNT West feed was - TNTP
    Rovi data - TNT West feed is now - TNTHD-W

    Gracenote data - USA West feed was - USAHDP
    Rovi data - USA West feed is now - USAHD-W

    Gracenote data - Freeform West feed was - FRFMHDP
    Rovi data - Freeform West feed is now - FREEFORMHD-W

    I could potentially see issues if the OnePass Call Letters do not change.

    My channel list in the guide is all over the place, with tons of channels I don't receive. I went to the Channel List menu and deselected many but they still are in my guide view. A lot of channels are named xxx-(E) for East, but I'm in TX.

    Would take a long time to delete all of them manually from the guide, gonna wait til it settles some... annoying that it messed with the channel list this way.

    The 28 day history should prevent repeats of the same episode from recording over and over. Even if the show/episode ID has changed the worst case is that it will record again once with the new show/episode ID. If you're actually getting multiple copies of the same episode then it's likely that the data is incomplete and the TiVo is recording all episodes because it can't distinguish between them. Hopefully this is the sort of thing that gets fixed quickly now that TiVo is part of the company that is providing the data.

    The couple 1Ps I have on channels that changed like that, HBO and Showtime, seem to be fine. I may recreate them, however, because, for example, in the 1P Manager it says "186 HBO" for old 1Ps, but "186 HBOHD-E" for a new one.

    That's to be expected, unless you're in El Paso area of Texas. East feed goes to Eastern and Central Time Zones. West feed goes to Mountain and Pacific Time Zones. Gracenotes usually didn't add a geographic tag for eastern feeds, and would add P for Pacific into callsign letters of some West feeds.

    But not all networks have both east and west feeds. many only have one feed / east feed that go to entire country.

    Do the duplicates in the To-Do list have an original air date listed in the description (hit info on the description)?

    I take back what I said before, all my Netflix shows show as not currently available. Guessing these will come back after a few days.

    Not sure if its related in any way to what's going on with those with Rovi guide data, but I did a Clear/Delete Program Info a few months ago. My streaming-only 1P's went away for 2 or 3 days, but returned on their own.

    On both of my (in use) tivos, I did two manual connections to make sure it got data and filled in the To Do list, before I went to work..

    On both I ended up nuking a bunch of things from the To do list.. It doesn't seem to remember what has been recorded before (as mentioned above)... though I'm pretty sure it did fix today's rerun of jeopardy.. it still has tomorrow's scheduled to record.

    But a few minutes ago I checked with the iOS app and a bunch of things that matched my PILOT|PREMIERE wishlist were scheduled to record AGAIN.. I'm sure I nuked all of them before I left, since that tivo is pretty close to full so I'm paying attention to it closely.

    Has anyone checked their Recently Deleted folder just to see if any recordings got accidentally moved there?

    Are prior pytivo push or pulls still there and playable?

    I had a show in there.. but I wasn't 100% sure it wasn't a show that accidentally was "revived".. (it was an old charlie brown special that I recorded that "I might watch some day".. and is the type of thing I routinely delete to make more space.. but I hadn't deleted it _recently_ at least.)

    A similar thing is happening to me last night on TNTHD w/ "Murder in the First", Suggestions recorded the second airing of a show that was already recorded with a OnePass, all 3 DVRs did the same thing.

    Also, Suggestions just recorded the same program I was watching on LiveTV in the foreground tuner.

    I did not look at the progam data

    And what about guide data? I know right now all my Rovi sources have laughable entries for the Canadian History channel next week. Something along the lines of "3am-3am History Channel Programming", repeating 5 times. So i have 3am-3am Monday, 3am-3am Tuesday ....

    Yes, most of the time it gets resolved just in time (they suddenly expand into real programming), but I have seen more than once "6pm-11pm Prime Time Programming" where it's never updated.

    If you have a To Do list that seems short, I wouldn't be surprised if a few channels had this all day gap filler. (Note: Zap2it data is fine and has valid information).
