    Maybe they've all taken a late summer vacation? "Jeopardy!" has been on hiatus for several weeks, but all was good because the episodes had descriptions and airdates (i assume) and my Pass did not try to record the known repeats. Starting next week, I'm getting the daytime syndicated version as well as the primetime new shows all added to my ToDo list because none of them have descriptions. We have reverted to the "old new normal" just when i was beginning to trust the system.

    The guide seems to have dropped most of the "season 2017" changes, as well as the dates on programs. It will affect those recording prime time news programs. I guess the experiment in making the guide better ran out of money.

    at least when I checked yesterday, I only had the new nightly episodes airing (though I manually re-scheduled the past few weeks of nightly reruns).. not the other time of day reruns.

    Is there a good way to report missing programs in the search information that aren't in TV listings? Because the search function doesn't have the movie "How to Train Your Dragon". I own it on VUDU but I can't bookmark the streaming video because Tivo doesn't know it exists.

    I submitted to the "report a lineup issue" page, but there were no appropriate options, so I had to pick "Missing a channel" and enter "000 - see below". Hopefully they'll look at that, but it seems like there should be a "This is missing but isn't scheduled for broadcast" option.

    I know this has been mentioned before but how come Rovi can't get the NFL times right?

    If CBS has the DH it shows as 12:00 noon and 3:25 Central (as it should) but if its just a single game (like weeks 1 & 2) it shows in the guide from noon-4 (no biggie)
    FOX is worse. They show at noon and 3pm if the DH (it should be 3:25) and just noon-3 if SH game (as in this week). It sucks when FOX has the DH as you have to tie up 2 tuners for both games due to the short end time on the early game

    One other note

    Why doesn't Rovi show analog OTA channels? Zap2it did so when Tivo had them for guide services my Series 3 worked great at the lake house where our ABC & FOX stations are STILL on low powered analog translators (fuzz and all) ;)
    I can tune to them still (on 16 & 39) but has no guide info :(

    Don't get a Roamio or Bolt. They don't support analog/vsb channels.

    Got a channel update yesterday for Cox Tulsa. Of course they screwed that up. I now have to be announced for the CW as they deleted the channel and put the wrong call sign as the label. Submitted a line up report. See how long this takes, as CW new season starts in a week.

    I know that. :) Have a Series 3 and a Roamio OTA both with Lifetime (and a couple deactivated Roamios...a OTA and a basic)

    They are horrid. I missed the first episode of Survivor because THE TITLE WAS NOT JUST "SURVIVOR" (yes, I shouted). Now I have to watch it On Demand WITH commercials. They are idiots...as always.

    Anyone else getting TBA on TBS but gives guide data in a couple of seconds if you select it? Only doing it on that channel has for a few days now.

    Live PD returns on 10/6 but is not being picked up by my season pass. Guide says First Air Date is 10/6 but I had to set a manual recording for both Friday and Saturday. However, the One Pass has picked up the following weeks programs as expected. Check your To do list. The One pass has been picking up the Live PD teaser programs this week. Go figure.

    Well, technically that's not true. Tivo treats each Survivor season as a brand new TV series with its own unique series ID. So look forward to the same problem for each Survivor season. This happens with sports all the time.

    In theory, a single Wishlist could probably be made to capture all Survivor episodes, but I agree that that should not be necessary.

    "The Amazing Race" used to catch every season until "The Amazing Race 29." Not sure but that might have been before Rovi took over guide listings.

    Again, they are idiots. Survivor is Survivor and the Amazing Race is the Amazing Race. Yes I know they did it last year, but it should not be that way. They had it right until ROVI came along. Also Big Brother was still Big Brother this past summer. HACKS...my favorite word for them...before, now, and forever. Pitiful.
