    Yeah all the news channels are dealing with this. At this point all we can do is schedule M-F manual recordings for those times instead of using a onepass.

    I'm getting the same thing for all my recordings on those types of programs from that channel.

    Thanks RJ and BigJim! I'll just delete as needed like TJ does for now.

    Strange, because I thought Rovi fixed the new until midnight issue. True, I never watch Fox News, but the prime time repeats on MSNBC stopped when the data changed. Even before the change the box was not recording same night duplicates. Also in a similar issue, the Monday repeats of TDS have stopped. So Far. ;)

    Hi all,

    Has anyone had this problem

    I have 3 HD TiVo's all received the upgrade message. Two units completed the upgrade and have Rovi guides. One unit went through the upgrade process and does not have the new guide. I have forced a connection numerous time, restarted twice and run guided setup twice to no avail. Also, why have the names we assigned to our boxes no longer show in system information. The information in Tivo online is correct. Please help!!! The new TV season starts Monday.

    Software version on all 3 boxes: 11.0n.H1-01-2-652, all 3 boxes are 652's

    A very constructive post, thanks!

    It seems that so many of the issues in this thread concern problems with using OTA in addition to a cable provider or all by itself. TiVo/Rovi sure didn't cover those bases well. I don't have OTA, but I sympathize. I looked at the publicity for the new Bolt+, by the way, and unless I'm missing something there is no OTA capability.

    Also BTW, a lot of posts here use the acronym WMC. What does it mean?

    Discovered last night that my FXX channel is 3 hours off so I missed the last two episodes of You're The Worst and the first episode does not seem to be repeating any time soon. :(

    I'm seeing the same thing here. But I only have it set to keep three episodes so it's not a big deal for me.

    For me it was screwing that up even before Rovi transition even though for years with Gracenote data it was correct. I just had a repeat Manual Record every week day for the 1st airing to deal with that and of course that still works fine with Rovi data now too.

    This is the metadata for both showings of last night's episode:

    Note no OAD and that the programId begins with "SH" rather than "EP", which probably tells the TiVo scheduler to ignore it because the program information provider has decided not to assign unique values to episodes.

    Yet another sterling example of the superiority of the new data.

    Wonder if everyone's away or I was the only one on here who got an updated guide yesterday that reverted to TBA, and History Channel Programming (and Discovery, etc.). Tonight Show last night definitely became TBA last night, plus many, many others. Can't even currently record Premier League Soccer tomorrow on cnbc (except manually, I assume)

    I did not see a reversion to multiple TBA problems. If your problem hasn't resolved itself already, you might want to try looking at the latest Guide data in the TiVo app. My TiVo app is for Apple's iOS on an iPad, but if you don't have an iOS device, maybe there's a TiVo app for a device you own. The latest Guide data for your cable provider's channels will show up in your app. The app may also show lots of TBAs, or it may show the right listings. If it shows the right listings, then possibly they will show up on your TiVo after a successful connection (or two or more successful connections). But if your TiVo keeps on showing lots of TBAs after multiple successful connections, then (obviously) there is an ongoing issue with your TiVo not getting all the current Guide data. I have no idea why such a discrepancy would persist over a long stretch of time, sorry. But it seems to me to be a different problem than the one in which "everybody" was seeing multiple TBAs for quite a while.

    Also, have you tried re-running Guided Setup? Did it help?

    If you don't have the TiVo app, you can use the TiVo online web site to check the guide data.

    Hey, y'all. For whatever reason, I definitely got jacked up data yesterday evening. Manually connected this afternoon, was in progress for over 90 minutes (like earlier this week), and now I'm good again. Thanks for the replies.

    P. S. It was the same exact problem everybody was seeing earlier in the week (including myself). Perhaps tivo caught it after only a small number of users received it. Makes me think it could resurface again for everybody, cause you'd think they'd be on the lookout for it given the scope earlier in the week.

    On Discovery, the new guide is recording Homestead Rescue instead of Bering Sea Gold. Quite annoying.

    Not just news but it's happening with many of the shows on children's and animated channels like Disney, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. I was just "upgraded" to the Rovi guide data and discovered afterwards that the first airing of a new episode and a repeat several hours later were both set up to record (it was a new episode of the animated Spider-Man show on Disney XD). The guide info for both airings was exactly the same except one said "New" and the other "(R)" yet the repeat was being recorded because this series doesn't have any episode info under Rovi. I still need to figure out exactly how many shows are missing episode info but I think it's going to be a nightmare. Shows on these channels tend to have literally hundreds of airing in a 10-14 day period. If they have all lost episode data, it's going to be a full time job deleting unwanted recordings. If I can't use season passes because it's too onerous, my Tivo DVR has effectively become a VCR and I see little point in sticking with Tivo. I'm on Verizon FIOS which apparently still uses Gracenote and I'm going to start exploring what their DVRs are like. I imagine it's much worse but I don't have time or desire to do the job that my Tivo is suppose to do.:(
