    What I am looking for is not seeing the same and or new data issues crop up every day.

    This is a very good question. At this point, many of my recordings are manual. I'm having to do a whole lot of manual intervention to just get stuff to record, either due to incorrect lineup/show data, vague show descriptions or other problems. Every single day I have to go into the To Do list, try to remember what is meant to record, double check that it's there, and if not, set up a manual recording. I'm having to look things up online to find out whether shows are new or not, because the rovi guide data no longer lists episode numbers.

    I have one TiVo that is starting to fail and one that's just old, and I was considering getting new TiVos to replace them, but now I'm seriously considering just using the Charter DVR (gasp) because TiVo now requires so much effort on my part. I went on vacation for a few days and basically missed all of the season premieres because I didn't manage to catch all of the stupidity in time.

    The beauty of TiVo has always been that it required generally very little effort on my part. I've had a TiVo in the house since it first came out, so the fact that I'm considering switching to a cable company DVR is pretty telling. I can't decide if this is general incompetence, negligence, or a sign that Rovi isn't really interested in the hardware, so doesn't care if we don't all continue using the TiVos.

    TiVCR. It's becoming an unpleasant task.

    Won't most cable STBs be using the same base poor data though? Out of the frying pan into the fire.

    Cable isn't an option for us and we don't watch enough TV to warrant satellite. I may have to take another look at Simple.tv.

    Okay, but we were talking specifically about lineups so you confused me.

    There is more than one issue and they probably do not have the same root cause.

    You may want to look into Tablo instead. Simple is pretty much dead.

    Yes, but TiVoMargrets post also mentions data issues.

    Which is why I wrote "root causes".

    Thanks for the clarification. That was not clear in context.

    Reported the problem of my Discovery Channel incorrectly being on the EAST feed when I'm in Utah. None of my Discovery Channel recordings record the right show back on 9/18. Still not a word from them.

    It would be nice if one of my issues was consistent! On MSNBC, the shows I record repeat several times and Tivo now records all of them. But - on CNN, Anderson Cooper some days goes two hours, and those are shown as one-hour back-to-back shows. Now, Tivo only records the first one even though the 2nd is new content.

    I wanted to report this but can find only a link for line-up issues and am not inclined to clog Margret's email with this. Where is the best place to report these - I'll bookmark it!

    Sports on BeIN now often have OAD for the original (live) airing, but subsequent re-airs don't. This is an odd decision. I have no actual knowledge about how OAD is being added (if by tivo, or by BeIN), but if by tivo, they need to improve their logic, so that all re-airs retain OAD.

    EDIT: Realized this thread was better left technical in nature and moved my post to the "Rovi guide" thread.
