    Both of those programs are missing SM for me. Bad night for TNT. Not a Rovi issue, I think.

    Well, I just lost an hour setting up my channels again, and I'm still not suew I got it all right.

    I really wish they'd implement a system like every cheap TV has, where it shows the video from the selected channel in the background to help decide which ones to keep or decide. With Tivi, it's a major chore. Step through al the channels, write down the ones you don't want, then go through the channels list and delete them. With background video, it would take just one pass through the list.

    Sorry about the thread drift. I'm going to delete my off topic posts.

    You know what's funny is that when I go to look at the copyright and trademark page on the Premiere and Mini, it still references Gracenote and Tribune, however the Roamio Basic seems to have a completely different version and scrolling through all the pages on it makes no references to cover art and guide data, let alone the provider. All three have the same 20.6.1a.RC10 software version.
    I also did a full "clear program information and to do list" and still no change.

    This is why I keep a spreadsheet of my channels I receive. It makes setting up the channel list so much easier. I just updated it whenever there are channel changes. Once you set it up, it is easy to maintain.

    The copyright stuff shouldn't change until the new guide is downloaded. I'm sure it is dynamically changed. The Mini doesn't download guide information so it was probably programmed differently.

    You still might have to go through 999 channels and De-select the channels you don't get.

    True, but IIRC, isn't there an option to select/deselect all? and then I can just add the handful we do get

    I don't know the answer to your question but when I saw this was going to happen last week I brought all my TiVos back on line and wrote down the software versions for my Series 2, TiVo HD, & Series 3. No change yet for the Series 2 or TiVo HD, unfortunately my Series 3 appears to have sh** the bed.
