    I have a TIVO series 2 working with DirecTV and for the last several days now, many of the channels I receive are not showing up in the TIVO guide even though I can manually get to that channel. What's even more strange is that some of the program titles in the guide appear gray or faded while others are the normal white. Is anyone else experiencing this? I have already gone into the channel setup function in TIVO to make sure that those channels are still checked and they are so it doesn't make sense that those channels wouldn't appear.

    When in the guide, are you looking at Channels You Receive, or Favorites?

    You could have some channels marked or unmarked in either of those setups.

    I'm looking at channels I receive. The box is checked and I can turn to that channel manually by entering the digits on the remote but it doesn't show up in the guide at all. I'm missing entire blocks of channels, like all of the XM music channels, etc. yet can still get to them by entering the channel number on my remote.

    You probably have accidentally set a display filter. (Look for Filters in Guide Options).

    For example, if you set the Filter to "Movies", it would not display any channels that do not currently have Movies on them, and would grey out any show that is itself not a movie.
