    You know what sucks? I just did this yesterday out of boredom and now I'll have to do this all over again. I mainly hide the channels I don't subscribe to so I don't get the " not authorized" message. Maybe I should take a picture of the channels I have unselected for future reference.

    FWIW, I had looked at TVguide last week and it was missing several of the sub channels on my Fios lineup (They stick them between 450 and 499). I just looked now and they are all there. It appears two have the wrong programming versus the existing Tivo guide but it sure looks like they have made a bunch of improvements in the last week.

    Maybe Tivo and Rovi are doing a scrub/compare?

    (From what I can see, the latest Fios addition, AXS in SD is not there but I haven't found anything else truly missing at this point.)

    My guess is one of the drives (it has a 1TB external attached) is going bad. It is working but takes like 30 seconds to respond each remote click plus I can not get to the recordings and if I access it via one of my other TiVos I get a message that there are no recordings (the drives were nearly full). At some point I am going to pull the external drive to see if the internal is still good or not.

    I bet it's the external. I've had good luck with my internal drives over the years. I had only one that started to go bad and I caught it and upgraded before it was a problem. When I had the WD MyDVR expander, i had problems galore, though it could have just been the cable.

    Nonetheless, sounds like a great time to just go for an internal upgrade....

    Could have been the cable, I agree. I've been using those WD MyBook DVR drives (the one with the orange circle) since like 2008 or so. Used them on my SA8300 cable box from Comcast, my 320GB dual tuner Premiere, 500GB dual tuner Premiere, my 500GB four tuner Premiere 4, and my 500GB four tuner Roamio basic, and I've yet to have an issue in 2016. They've been rock solid.

    As an OTA customer, I'm wondering if TiVo has their own channel lineups for OTA.

    For instance, if I go to zap2it.com, enter my zip code and get the OTA channel lineup, I get a smaller channel lineup than what TiVo provides me with for my zip code.

    I have a Premiere set for OTA. The channel list is someone's dream. Now, if I had a 500' tower I might have a chance. :D

    I plan on leaving my TiVos alone. And give them a chance to correct any issues.

    I don't care what it shows is going to record. As long as what it actually needs to record actually gets recorded. As long as I don't miss any shows, things will be fine for me.

    In my market, with the exception of 9 channels (most of which are sub-channels), I can either reliably receive the channels, or frequently pick them up from time to time.

    That analog channel that hasn't existed since 2009 might be difficult to pick up though. :D

    Yeah same here. This isn't like a software update that's going to improve performance, correct a problem, or provide some new feature. At best it is going to result in some problems for the TiVo owner. Yeah, I'm curious about what is going to happen, but not THAT curious. Maybe by the time it gets to me some problems will be ironed out.

    Point toward a planet at least 3.5 light years away and hope for the best.

    I want the update as soon as possible... not because I'm excited by the prospect of having my Gracenote data :)up:) swapped for Rovi data :)down:), but I need to see if there are any changes to my channel lineup.

    I'm an OTA customer, and with the exception of a PBS affiliate from another market, TV Guide only shows my DMA's local channels on their broadcast listings, and not the neighboring channels I can receive. I can rarely pick up my local CBS/MyNetworkTV/The CW affiliate, so it's very important to me that, should my channel lineup change, I get my neighboring CBS affiliates added as quickly as possible in advance of the Fall premieres.

    Sadly, I left it in my other fez, which got lost sometime somewhere. Probably the same place as my bowtie. :cool:

    Just ask the Face of Boe, or Captain Jack, which ever version you run into he should know. ;)
