My Roamio To-Do list only goes out to 9/24.
Is that what the problem is?
Just now a 1P for AGT had been fine. A few minutes before the Final I looked and it was not on my To Do list. It was because it just changed to TBA!!!
I know how you all feel
Man if I worked at TiVo - I would be the dude who would be on vacation right about now. What a nightmare it must be over there. Moment of silence for those people...
I use the OTA guide on my Roamio in Dallas, TX. Tonight I noticed that starting about 6 days out on 9/19, there are many "to be announced" listings in the guide...on the major network main channels. Some channels even have the entire daytime schedule under one listing of "to be announced" on some later days. Is Tivo aware of how bad these listings are? This is horrible! I've had several DVRs in the past other than Tivo and I've never seen the listings this bad.
I had the same issue of some channels had no program information. I forced my TiVo to connect to the service and the guide corrected itself.
NBC had the first game.thenext two games are on CBS. My TiVos recorded the first game properly from NBC and have the next two Thursday games scheduled properly from CBS.
I'm a fan of the "<Channel Name> Programming". Nothing like 12 days of guide data, with the last 6 days being that.
Well, if I didn't have Tivo to tell me that FX was going to air FX Programming how could I ever figure that out?
Any idea why the folks at Rovi don't care?
I can life with semi-crappy descriptions and duplicate recordings. But, my Tivo HD starts missing important recordings due to bad guide data, I'm going to start getting pretty upset and start looking for alternatives. Unfortunately, I'm unaware of any decent ones for use w/CableCARD.
We really don't know, but they were formally known as Macrovision, a name that speaks for itself.
I guess we'll find out one way or the other soon enough ...
I'm watching TBA at 10:35pm on KHNL (NBC) .. I can't believe this ...
Wayne Newton is still alive?
ETA: Carol Burnett too and just as funny in her understated way.
Now watching Late Night with Seth Meyers also recorded as TBA, and no idea how this is possible but it claims to have "skip".
I too am missing all guide data for NBC after 9/19 am and CBS after 9/20 am. The same is true for TVGuide.com so Rovi has a real screw up on thier hands with national network data.
If Tivo nationwide collectively misses the entire launch of the fall season, you can pretty much spell the end of the new Tivo corporation.
Tivo (fka Rovi) had better get this fixed before Monday...
It really does seem like a "social network" guide data scheme would probably produce more reliable data from something like individual TiVo users' "tweets" about schedules than the "professionally" produced schedule info from rovi.
Users with the most accurate submissions could get a discount on their subscriptions .
This has gone on long enough and still no word from Tivo on what "we're working on it?
We're missing recordings due to TBA or wrong data guide.
Yes, I've reported- repeated guided set up-
Offering no hope is about to send me to cable company DVR.
While watching the news on my local CBS affiliate last night, I saw a commercial for Dr. Phil. I thought that was weird because I knew I saw Dr. Phil listed on the local NBC affiliate while scrolling through my guide earlier. Sure enough, Rovi is listing the same episode of Dr. Phil on NBC at 2pm and CBS at 3pm. A check of Zap2It indicated the 2pm show on NBC is actually Dr. Oz.
I don't know what's worse, the blocks of TBA/<Channel Name> Programming or listed programming that's wrong.
NBC's TBA block includes The Tonight Show which almost always has SM. Seth Meyers never has it. But since they were in the same TBA, the SM icon was applied. Same thing yesterday. If you record The Daily Show and extend it 30 minutes, it will show SM, but the second half hour won't actually have it.
That name says it all...
Are most of the issues from smaller markets or somethings? I've been looking at my TiVos every day expecting to see some issues after reading all these posts. But I haven't missed any recordings and everything is getting scheduled to record like it should be. I also haven't forced any connections. The TiVos have been left alone to do everything on their own.
EDIT: An earlier post mentioned the Tonight SHow. I see where it recorded on Monday Night, but it didn't get recorded on Tuesday Night. The same with the Late Show. It recorded on Monday Night but not on Tuesday night. This is the first thing I've noticed that didn't get recorded. Most of my attention has been on the shows I watch regularly or the shows that record during Prime time hours.
And I am assuming that it should have recorded on Tuesday? I have no idea since the new season is just getting ready to start for the primetime shows.
Same here in NY. I record Colbert, and it missed it last noght. As a result, I just set manual records for tonite and tomorrow. Friday night seems to be there, but with generic show data.
