    Here is what my NFL Football WishList looks like currently:

    Title Keyword: (NFL Football, Night Football)
    Category: Sports/Sports Event

    Shows all of the upcoming Thurs/Sun/Mon Night games as matches as well as the Sunday morning/afternoon games.

    Typically, I'll scroll through the list each week to see which games I'd like to record (outside of Denver Broncos games). This WL helps keep the list all in once place!

    :rolleyes: There's a lot of laziness going on around here. When you're told repeatedly to use ARWLs for sports, at least make some effort to figure them out. It's all there if folks bother to look, and there are a few threads here since the guide data cutover specifically about sports that give you all the info you need (like having to use new and repeats instead of new).

    But spoonfeeding is typical for many forums, not just this one. People just don't want to read or research anything.

    I'm doing the opposite for y'all. I'm leaving my sports 1Ps exactly as they were prior to Rovi data. I'm really doing it for myself, rather than y'all, but I'll report any improvements to see if, and when, Tivo fixes this situation ("mess").

    Yeah, I'm having to manually search out my sports to record, but at least my baseline 1Ps remains unmolested, while I wait this out.

    Tivo truly has gumption to call Rovi data superior/improved. They should not have called out the alleged quality of the Rovi data at all. This would have been a time to remain silent on the matter.

    my tivo roamio and premiere had worked for the last 7 years with no problems now the wishlist and #1 season pass boston celtic is only picking up 2014-15 nba celtics preview even though it should be 2016-17 season! Its not finding any nba games for any team even when i set it for nba basketball,But the guide does find some games , not my wishlist and season pass :mad: PS I also notice the HD channels dont show nba league pass anymore now it just shows sports packages on channels 1450 -1454. but the sd channels starting on1490 do say nba league pass. I am with FRONTIER after being with verizon for the pass 7 years.

    In case anyone hasn't noticed, Rovi has borked NFL Football again. The night games have all reverted to XXX Night Football instead of NFL Football as the title. Fortunately I kept my original ARWL which has both optional keywords (Night Football) (NFL Football) so it still gets them.

    Sigh.

    Anyone figure out a way to get it to stop recording the 3:00AM and other repeats?

    Nope, I just delete them from the ToDo.

    Honestly if you're not watching the ToDo like a hawk now you're going to miss stuff. Wife complained that Talking Dead did not record after TWD Sunday night so I checked and sure enough, bad guide data made Tivo think it was a dupe (it wasn't). Grr.

    That isn't really a solution. The problem with deleting a sports repeat, is it can cause another repeat to record when the scheduler runs again. And unlike tv shows, many sports like NBA and NHL are repeated 2 or 3 times each game. So that is over 200 repeats a season you have to delete from your todo list just for one team. That is pretty unacceptable.

    So give me a better one given the sad state of affairs now. Complaining to Tivo is obviously not getting it fixed, probably because they'd have to fire the entire mgmt team over their guide collection and publication service.

    That's what I'm doing. Before the great data downgrade, the repeats weren't recorded. Even more frustrating is deleting the extraneous records for the next two weeks only to find them back a few days later. I used to clean things up every two weeks, now it's every week. Using 'magic' is becoming more reliable than Tivo.
