    I find that most of the subject and content listings don't show any AIR DATE, like 8/28/16, so it makes it much more difficult to figure out what is new.

    also, some shows now are presented differently than before.

    say on CNN NEW DAY (morning show) it used to be shown for each hour from 03:00-04:00, 04:00-05:00 and 05:00-06:00, one could record just one hour of it.

    Same with Today, it was 07:00-09:00 for today, then 09:00-10:00 for Today NOW (or something like that, I never recorded it) and then 10:00-11:00 for Today the drinking show.

    Now, they are all one show 07:00-11:00, FOUR HOURS WORTH. Why would THIS type of element change, the actual SHOW had various show definitions before I would have thought that was something one had to keep around?

    I reported the issue with sports missing data so you can't use Wishlists to record first run sports correctly. TiVo closed the case and said I need to recreate my Wishlists.

    Those looking for a resolution to these issues might be disappointed. At this point, I'm not sure TiVo can even be used for recording sports reliably anymore. That was one of the big selling points when I bought into TiVo.

    It seems TiVo is doing what it can and trying to fix lineups and upgrade issues. But I'm not sure anybody is really trying to fix data issues.

    Re-create? Changing record options to record New & Repeats or is there something else?

    Care to share the code so that we can use it to check ours?

    If I set my Wishlists to New & Repeat, my TiVo will fill up within days of nothing but sports. The data is so wrong it will even record repeats multiple times. Also, setting the number of recordings to keep smaller means I will lose the original airing (that is not cut to fit in the allotted time). Just this week alone would be over 30 hours of duplicate recordings if I didn't go in an delete them one by one after they record.

    Other than getting out some frustration with this post, it may be more beneficial in the long run to provide some specifics of what's wrong, so that tivo folks can see it and fix it.

    Already done that directly.

    Surely one can vent here without being flamed out?
    I am being civil. Just really annoyed that this garbage is on my TiVo for which I paid lifetime.
    If you check out WMC users many of them moved back to Gracenote via a guide pulling app called EPG123. I only wish this option was open to us...
    I highly doubt much of the actual data content which either missing or wrong will get fixed.
    We're FUBAR'd :(

    You have an interesting definition of "civil"...

    ???? Not seeing that here. I'm seeing descriptions with my shows and multiple new shows are properly being recorded hourly. I've not had to manually create any recordings.

    The biggest issue is sports and movies. Many sports don't have original air dates and/or use multiple series ids. It is basically impossible to record sports with Wishlists or Onepasses. As for movies, they are missing all kinds of metadata along with some movies actually appearing as a tv series causing all kinds of issues.

    As for tv shows, yes, they do have descriptions. However, many are using the wrong season and episode numbers. This is going to make linking them with streaming services pretty unlikely.

    Wrong thread for a rant. This is more of a information thread. Specifics would help others and maybe yourself. My guide info is all correct as far as I can tell. A little long winded but accurate. Some seem to like that. I prefer a shorter concise guide info.

    I'll need to check my NFL wishlists then. I only have wishlists for the national NFL games and for the Redskin games. During the regular season. But the last time I looked at the to Do List i didn't look for the first NFL game. Which I think is next week on Thursday?

    Yes, next Thursday is one game, and Sunday is when the majority of games start. If your WL has "Washington Redskins", it will not pick anything up. You will have to remove Washington. Also, if your WL is set to record "New", it will not record live sporting events. Live events are considered repeats now.

    Worse yet, some recently recorded movies don't identify as movies or series, and only appear if you select "ALL" in the left column.

    Hadn't even considered that, but of course it also is a problem.

    Welcome to your TiVCR.

    TiVo are proud to announce a new feature called OnePress.

    You set a day and time to record your favourite shows by simply pressing buttons on your remote. Couldn't be simpler.

    I wouldn't have known. My "NFL Football" wishlist set for New & Repeats doesn't even show the Thursday game for some odd reason... It is showing only 1 game with TBA teams for Sun 9/11.
