    Same here. I have to base Roamios and just one of them does this. I have had to reboot the one unit twice since the change over.
    Rebooting the HDUI does not help and only rebooting the box fixes it.

    I can confirm this does not work. The only way to restore the icons and art work is to reboot.

    Thanks Margaret for fixing my Discovery Channel East/West problem. My ticket from weeks ago is still sitting there in the queue untouched. They need to give you a raise. :)

    This Rovi guide data is driving me to drink. For some bizarre reason, they seem to think that being in Litchfield county CT, I should be getting Buffalo Sabres Hockey games. I have no clue who came up with this designation, but with Charter's regional head end in Newtown CT(in Fairfield cty), I get NY Rangers games. I also get Devils and Islanders. This was ALL correct on the previous provider.

    This is the second time I have gone to Tivo's site and put in the problem, explaining to them(in the extra section) exactly the issue and what these channels should actually reflect. I did it several weeks ago but nothing has changed. This is screwing me up when doing searches for what channel the Rangers game is on, on a given night, as they move it around from MSG, MSGPLUS and an extra overflow channel. But since Rovi thinks I should be getting Buffalo, the guide is never right at all for me.

    People were right when they feared issues like this when Rovi was rumored to buy Tivo.

    **EDIT**
    I see the issue. Rovi thinks I should receive MSG/MSGPLUS ZONE 2 and the guide reflects this. But because my cable company's(Charter) head end is in a different county, I actually receive MSG/MSGPLUS ZONE 1. It was right before the changeover to Rovi.

    I have let them know but who knows if they will fix it. This is what frustrates me. They should have checking the lineups to make sure they match, BEFORE instituting the changeover.

    Come on Rovi WAKE UP.

    Is there a way to turn the Discovery Bar off ? I'd rather see more My Show items than tiles with "In My Shows".

    Is there some reason there are so many items in the guide that aren't in English? Up until the conversion, there were some movies that had Spanish descriptions, but now searching for an actor brings up a list of movies and TV shows with non-English descriptions. Usually they are Spanish, but sometimes they are in languages that the TiVo software can't even display.

    For example, who can forget that charming animated comedy staring Jason Lee, Justin Long and Jesse McCartney named "????????????? 3"?

    i've noticed this is happening more often, too, the number of repeat titles for the same movie can approach upwards of a dozen listings...

    Maybe try another zip code and re-do guide set-up. Check some online Rovi guides and test zip codes to see if this might work.

    Non-English descriptions clutter things up and slows things down, An English only option would be nice.

    Check Please! In Chicago doesn't have descriptions with Rovi so it records every single episode.

    I'm not sure if it's Rovi related because I started seeing some of it before the switch but now it's out of control. TiVo Search has gone from a great feature to almost useless for movies. Every recent movie has multiple entries in multiple languages. Trying to sort through and find the right one is more trouble than it's worth.

    No friday they send a command to delete Alexandria La again after they had added it.

    then I get a message that the dish network locals had been added back. They haven't.
    so now I have no networks at all. Wow Rovio is a great guide it has no local channels. bla

    Can't wait to see what happens come 1/1/17 when WHDH drops NBC affiliation in the boston area. NBC should be announcing soon their plans for how NBC content will be broadcast. Hopefully this gets to TiVo/Rovi expeditiously....
