    Are you still Verizon FiOS or were you switched to Frontier? I had ZERO problems before Frontier took over, but since this happened around the time that Rovio took over I'm not sure which one is to blame, or both.

    It's probably local. NBC/U owns it, but my NBC station doesn't send it. You can get an overview of channels with:
    Get Cozi TV | COZI TV

    In my area it's only on Dish.

    I get Cozi on my ota TiVo. Guide is correct. It's one of the few subchannel diginets Cox actually doesn't carry.

    Thanks for the link. In Los Angeles it shows that it's on 460 for Frontier, so why would TiVO tell me there was a lineup change and just delete the channel? Especially when you can actually tune to the channel and get the programming?? The channel also shows up on Frontier's lineup for March 2017 for California as "KNBC (Cozi TV) 460." @TiVoMargret

    You want me to explain TiVo??? Anyhow, my zipcode says there are two OTA channels that will have it. None can be received or are on my lineup. A zipcode 6 miles away, and on the same headend, only has it on Dish. Cozi does rhyme with Rovi. o_O

    Ok, I now seem to have Cozi TV data! I complained here so I think I should give acknowledgement when it's due.

    Verizon FiOS is still here in the DC area. And yes, Cozi is from one of the local sub-channels. Guide data is correct for my OTA TiVos and my TiVos on FiOS for Cozi.

    Saw The Lone Ranger (1956) available on A&E for today, Saturday Mar 25, 2017. Thought the old version scheduled was odd, as more recent movies are shown on the channel. Sure enough, it's the Armie Hammer / Johnny Depp version. Thanks, Rovi! I guess I'll go and file a Lineup Report and do your work for you! /sarcasm

    Yep. Neilson took full control in February so now nobody here can say that Neilson (Gracenote) is better now. It just took about a month for them to screw it up. Tribune stated when they put Gracenote up for sale that it was losing money so it appears Neilson had to make some cut backs in order to bring the outlays in line with revenues.

    Greeted this AM to a message on my Roamio "new channels added". Woe is me
    Been fighting guide and lineup problems for months without a single correction and now I have 15 channels added off which none are being transmitted in my geographic location and they all have "to be announced" as program info.
    Over one third of the channels in my guide are incorrect and/or lack any or correct guide data.
    Have escalated this to the Executive Team and they have been no help although they do the rope-a-dope really well

    Try this amazing trick. Start using Favorites. Bring up your (grid) guide and move left until you are sitting on the channel number. Now if you want to see that channel in the guide, hit Thumbs Up. Move down to the next channel. When you are finished, hit the "A" button and tell the guide to only display Favorites. Any new channels will not be in your guide. Your checked channels are still included in any Search or Wish List. You could use your Channel List if it's easier for you. I get 240 channels. I check about 50. I have 19 Favorites.

    I've just learned to live with it. Incompetence rains supreme. Example: Elementary many times starts, in my area, at 10:30. Rovi thinks it starts at 10:00, so i just have to add 40 minutes to the recording time to make sure I get the entire show and just FF through Madam Secretary which comes before it. Such is life :cool:

    While sports are active, my 1P for Madam Secretary starts and ends on time. Elementary starts on time and extends one hour. I have never missed anything, and with SM, one button moves to the beginning of either one. Even when it's delayed by sports, you only need to hit one button.

    1P, SM? I sorry I don't frequent these forums enough to get all the abbreviations. I have 3 older Premiers and I know I don't have all the features of the newer machines like skip. Pleas explain?

    The amazing trick of creating favorites or removing unwanted channels from the guide is EZ. The attitude is not appreciated or warrented.

    The problem is not so much that I repeatedly gifted with channels I can't receive, cause as Joe's amazing trick to resolve that, BUT I don't have 1/3 of the channels I can receive listed in the guide correctly with correct guide info.

    One third of the channels I can receive are not correctly identified by either name, network, logo, or call letters and they all have dramatically incorrect program info or "to be announced" and I've been living with that for 6-8 months.
    I can't watch or record what I want on those channels cause TiVo has no idea when a program is on cause the channels is not correctly listed in the guide.

    Got an amazing trick for that Joe?

    Am in that same boat! Heh, 1P I deduced as OnePass. Am still scanning through most threads to figure out SM. Heck, figuring out BSC was a tad confusing enough! :cool:

    Are they scheduled to start at the later time or are they delayed by something?
