    My line up changed yesterday morning, and aside from having to call Tivo to learn how to repoint to the new guide, things went easily.
    I have also not had pixelization issues recently (thanks again to SCSIRAID!) Glad to see that fixed.

    LockRob - what did you have to do? I am out of town and my wife is at home without any new guide data on the new channels...

    We went in to settings and channels, then changed the channel lineup to "new extended digital", from "extended digital". (I think)... that changed the channel numbers to the new numbers and at that point I had to just add the Premium channels I had. I will still have to check to make sure everything is there, but the Tivo tech new exactly what to do and what steps were involved.

    Did all your season passes migrate cleanly?

    I called Tivo, the tech had no clue other than to redo Guided Setup or "wait a week".

    I did the daily call on one machine; it got the new channel lineup but with some of the channel codes slightly wrong. On the other machine, I redid guided setup, and after it was done, the new channel lineup was there with the correct channel names, though I had to go through the channel list and toggle a bunch of things. Weird.

    The ToDo list appears slightly glitched. It shows the old channel numbers, but if you look at the upcoming showings, it shows that the correct (new) channel will be recorded.

    Wait, have the channel line ups changed in the triangle? I hadn't noticed anything.

    My Tivo says the same thing, but so far it is recording the SD version. For example, ABC HD used to be 909. The new HD is 1105 and the digital SD is 105. So the to-do list says it will record 909, the upcoming says it will record 1105, but it actually records 105. So I am going through and changing all my Season Passes for the next 2 days. Maybe it will straighten itself out for the rest. If not, I will change them all.

    All of NC will have the same channel numbers according to the letter I received from TWC. So all of NC will have ABC HD on channel 1105, for example.

    Why do they do this just when finally figure out which numbers correspond to my favorite "live TV background noise" channels?

    <sigh>

    so i'm having the same issues of guide info not showing up for the new channel lineup. just a long line of "To be announced."

    i've manually connected to the TiVo service several times, and have gone back through Guided Setup and there's still no guide information.

    a previous poster mentioned changing "extended digital" to "new extended digital" somewhere in the settings, but i can't find that either, even after slowly going through each item in the Settings menu.

    any other ideas as to how to get guide info back? is TW just not pushing it out for the new lineup yet?

    When I went through Guided Setup I got the guide data. So that's not the issue. Check the account info in the Settings tab for your cable lineup. Mine says "digital rebuild".

    In the past, I have run out of guide data and couldn't get it back. Pulling the plug, waiting a couple of minutes, and plugging it back in fixed the issue. Can't hurt to try.

    Not that I know of. Maybe you should re-do guided set-up.

    When it asked you the questions of which station you received on a specific channel, did you actually check? It asked me about 2 channels - one I did receive that station, the other channel had no assignment, so I said "no". That is how it determines the correct lineup.

    Maybe I read too much into what TWC said. Maybe they meant that the same SYSTEM would be in place across all of NC - i.e. channels grouped by topic, and to add a "1" to go from digital channel to HD version.

    At any rate, I do like the new system. I almost hate to have to say it, but it actually makes sense.

    At any rate, check your season passes. My ocal network channel season passes converted to the SD version, so I had to change them all to the HD version. The non-network channels mapped O.K.

    After changing my channel lineup to the new TWC Charlotte lineup, I keep getting message from Tivo that says Could Not find your lineup. This happens daily each time Tivo phones home for program info. Happens on both my S2's and my HD. Channel listing on the Tivos are correct, however. How can I stop this nagging, erroneous message from TIVO?

    Did the guided set-up. Had to press thumbs down 3 times, etc. Answered all the questions. Tivo seemed to take forever. Finally came back and had correct channel numbers for the new line-up. Took a couple of days to get all the program guide data for two weeks out. It was after that that I started getting the TIVO nag message. And still am. Will it go away if I just ignore it. I wonder, How many times redoing guided set-up does it take?
