    Still bad in Portland, OR and I am on Xfinity if that matters.

    I checked last night and it was still wrong. As of this morning, it shows two episodes of The Blacklist (as opposed to a two-hour episode) which is good enough for me.

    Dallas area Spectrum.

    Just noticed: the metadata doesn't say it's a repeat and it doesn't say it's new.

    I have a new tag on my guide and by the title in the description, plus an OAD of 4/26/19 on both recordings.

    This is a problem on 5/3 as well. NBC has pulled new episodes of Blindspot until after sweeps (end of May) and put The Blacklist in its time slot of 8pm/7pm Central. My Tivo is showing a new Blindspot in the 7pm C hour, and The Blacklist at 8pm. I'll submit another lineup ticket to TiVo.

    I sent in the form for 5/3 and 5/10. Probably need it for the season finale on 5/17.

    It would sure be great if they can fix this for the rest of the season. Today it is still bad here for 5/3, etc.

    It has 22 episodes this season. Changing their "boilerplate" defaults can take a while. It's like the actual guide department is different than the "no data" department. I've been working to fix weekends on MSNBC for about a year and it still has problems.

    stupid 2nd episode in the middle of the night had like a 55 minute air time. so of course it was cut off. (I usually would add padding, but zoned out and forgot this time.)

    I started it showing on On Demand, made a 50 minute timer on my phone... then watched most of the episode on another Tivo.. so when the timer went off, I had watched the recording. I had done a few other things, so just muted it for a few minutes.. and watched the ending on On Demand.. without suffering through the unskippable commercials.

    I actually wish On Demand and other streaming platforms let you do this. Even if they "forced" you to watch the commercial breaks (or hopefully ONE commercial break), it would be a convenient way to catch a missed ending. i.e. let me FF through the *show* part of the recording even if you don't let me FF through the commercials. (or, if it only shows me ONE commercial break.. let me FF once.. and when I stop, show me the PREVIOUS commercial break and the rest of the show.)

    Most streaming services do. I do this with the Xfinity Stream iOS app or special channel apps all the time. Only TiVo’s On Demand UI doesn’t.

    I did not know that. is there a tvos version? Guess I should check when I get home.

    if not, can I AirPlay to my appleTV from my phone?

    seriously, this would make me *somewhat* pay attention to ONE set of commercials. (I'd still probably mute the TV). But I wouldn't play my "set 50 minute timer" shenanigans game.

    Depends on in the app support AirPlay or not. I know the Xfinity Stream app disables playback when Airplay is enabled. Most apps don’t do that.

    A guide update? Or a TiVo reply that is discouraging? I'm still hoping they'll fix it by Friday.

    Check zap2it. My guide update shows just 8pm for the next two weeks with some strange stuff for 5/10.

    Google agrees.

    Okay weird, because it's showing a Dateline after The Blacklist. And my guide data still shows a Blindspot before The Blacklist. I'm going to just do manual recordings for the entire time slot and cover myself.

    But even the NBC site shows just one Blacklist on Friday with a Dateline following.
