    Nearly a week since NBC moved to 60-5 WBTS-LD in Boston and about a month since NBC began broadcasting on that channel. Rovi continues to show To Be Announced in the EPG. Not what I would expect from a company that boasts of a Premium Guide and service.

    Yes, TiVo's guide really screwed that up. It showed that the Hallmark Channel was airing a single episode of "Golden Girls" from 11am-1pm ET, followed by a tape-delayed broadcast of the Rose Parade at 1pm. In actuality the channel aired the Rose Parade LIVE at 11am and not "Golden Girls." WTF?

    How do I report NEW badge tag failure?

    The Ellen DeGeneres Show is new for the rest of January; iOS app guide has/hasn't a correct tag (see attached) and the Roamio Pro guide also does not have it tagged. It's also incorrectly dated. Gah! IMG_4366.PNG IMG_4367.PNG IMG_4366.PNG IMG_4367.PNG IMG_4368.JPG

    Possibly, send an email to TiVo Margret (per an earlier request by her in the forum)?

    HBO announced a few days ago that they were going to air a Debbie Reynolds/Carrie Fisher documentary on Saturday instead of a movie. As of today the guide still shows the movie. I put in a manual recording two days ago as I don't trust the guide to reflect HBO's actual programming. Sad.

    Well, the good news is that the Tivo guide now does show that the documentary Tivo labels as "Bright Lights (2016)" will air on the main HBO channel on Saturday, 8pm EST. It's scheduled length is 1 hr 35 min. The bad news is the Tivo guide also shows another listing labeled "Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2017)" that's only for the HBO Latino channel. This guide entry is curiously scheduled to record for only 1 hour. I checked the HBO site just to make sure the Latino channel wasn't getting some bizarrely truncated version and nope, the Latino channel airing is also for 1 hr 35 mins. So for our fellow Spanish-speaking Tivo users who are Star Wars/Carrie Fisher/Debbie Reynolds fans planning to watch this documentary on HBO Latino: pad your scheduled Tivo recording!

    Honestly, it's so hard to believe in this day and age but I honestly think a significant portion of Tivo's guide is created manually. And I think, given the it's-right-but-somehow-off entries we've seen, that it's been off-shored to the Philippines. But maybe the manual thing shouldn't be a surprise coming from a company that has a skip mode feature that relies on manually encoding of commercial breaks.

    BTW, the double season/one passes for Being Mary Jane that I posted about and also emailed TivoMargret a couple days ago? Still screwed up.

    I don't know if you noticed, but before the Saturday airing made the guide, a search yielded a showing airing Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Bizarre.

    Edit: my TiVo guide still doesn't show the Saturday airing, but I have a Sunday afternoon showing scheduled. ( I mistakenly though it was later in the week)

    Ha! One day I was cruising through the guide and saw a bunch of episodes of 'McHale's Navy' marked as 'new'. Uh, what century are you living in, Rovi! :p

    On Wednesday night Jimmy Kimmel announced that his guests Thursday night would be Mel Gibson and Claire Foy. That is who he had. But the TiVo guide continued to show Emma Stone and Joel Edgerton all the way until air time. So my recording shows the wrong guests even though it was known well in advance who the right guests would be.

    This is all so perplexing. A company that specializes in Guide data purchased TiVo and now TiVo's guides are all screwed up. Counterintuitive. And just horrible customer treatment.

    Saw that too! My wife every night scans the 5 major late nite talk shows for the guests and hits record. The unreliability of the description really screws it up. This site Late Night TV Talk Show Lineups Page is pretty good but who wants to do that.

    I'm sure this has been noticed/discussed but it's hard to search due to the common nature of the program. I set up a OnePass for The OA from Netflix and it only shows S1 E1 as being available. Does anyone else see this? I've had other Netflix series that have performed as I expected but not this one for some reason. I can't even see more episodes if I select "All Episodes."

    Streaming 1Ps and searches are completely broken. It's almost as if Tivo has just given up on making them work.

    I've been trying to find two shows that are starting in February (24: Legacy and The Blacklist: Redemption) in search and neither exist. TiVo used to let you search for upcoming shows, but apparently they no longer do so.

    I wonder how long it will take for them to show up?

    be careful when adding 1p as soon as they are available through search, i suggest creating a wishlist and waiting until just before the pilot airs (this has worked better for me).

    the reason? i've had 1p for new shows change several times between search availability and before air, causing missed eps, or failing to record the new show entirely.

    I actually had that happen where I added a OnePass for a show via the TiVo iOS app and nothing recorded because it created it for "wrong" show. The OnePass I created had no upcoming airings or episode information. When I created a OnePass from the guide on the box it used the "correct" show. Looking at the two OnePasses, they looked identical (same name) so there was no way by looking to see which was the right one.
