    I noticed some of my channels got "UnChecked". I had to go back to the "Channel List" and ReCheck them. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Is this a new box? I recall this bug years ago. It seems to happen when the guide data hasn't been fully indexed yet.

    Happens as mentioned if guide data hasn't been indexed yet and if all the guide data for a channel is "TBA." Some channels like 24hour weather just don't have guide data and Tivo decides to uncheck it. I've been back and forth with Tivo on this over the years even with the S2 that under no circumstance show a channel become unchecked without the user personally unchecking it. Sometimes they manage to get something other than TBA put in the guide data and that helps.
