    Wonderful. Took them 20 days, several phone calls and emails to get mine correct. I I'm sure yours is on the way but the point is...20 days...it's not right. They need to get their act together.

    What a mess! I had not heard of this switchover until today. I never got anything in the mail and haven't seen any crawls because I haven't been watching my NBC shows for a while... I just happened to see it come up as a suggested post on Facebook earlier today.

    It is still showing Spanish guide data here as well for Comcast. :(

    Mine's not fixed yet. FiOS in Sudbury.

    Let NBC Boston know so they can fight the battle. Write to tips@nbcboston.com or send a message here:

    Fios / Needham guide not fixed yet here either. I put in Tivo support email and emailed tips@nbcboston.com also.
    I know I can program by time and channel to go to 516 for NBC shows I want to get, but that is like a trip back to the days of a VCR.

    What a disaster for TIVO and NBC Boston. Today's Bosto Globe still has no listings for NBC Boston and still shows WHDH as an NBC affiliate.

    I guess I was just expecting it to work... For TiVo this had always been there strength... Looks like most of the new shows are coming back this week.... So... will be manually recording I guess if needed. What a pain in the but.....

    I am an all Tivo house... not sure if FIOS has it in there guide...

    I suspect it's different on every MA community. I'm in Comcast Boston ...Took TIVO 17 days to get it right. ..it was correct on Comcast boxes day one. It could be that your cable company, if not Comcast, is not providing TIVO with the correct listings. If the listings are correct on you cable company's box, then it is a TIVO problem.
    Find someone with a company box and check their listings.

    FIOS has it in their online listings. But then again, FIOS uses Gracenote.
    This is purely a TiVo/Rovi issue.
    They messed up getting and delivering the data.
    Again.

    Looks like TIVO messed up their guide instead of showing the NBCBoston shows on channel 516 they are showing up in the guide on channel 475. The guide does not match what is showing on channel 475. Hope they get this fixed soon.

    They have 475 labeled as WNEUDT2 and zap2it has it labeled as WNEUDT3.

    TiVo messed this one up pretty bad.

    Yup, Sudbury FiOS here; TiVo has the guide for NBC Boston on channel 475, 516 is listed as To Be Announced.
    I tried to get TiVo to fix the guide information for Late Night w/Seth Meyers, as it is listed as starting at 12:38AM, so I missed the beginning of the monologue. But to no avail. This has been screwed up since they switched guide data.

    My guide info. (not in the Boston area) shows the show as starting at 12:37 am and has for a while, and I believe that is accurate--it connects me with a few seconds left of the Tonight Show which then flows into Late Night without commercial break.

    My understanding is that each local station can broadcast it at a slightly different time, based on their nightly news program. There was also a problem with the Tonight Show, which also is listed as 3 minutes later than it really is. I literally miss the whole intro and the first joke, and with my TiVo, the in-between recording interruption is very noticeable.

    Guys - use the "start 2 minutes early" feature - or (sigh) for now - use manual recording to get Fallon & Meyers.

    Hmmmm - look in Settings -> Channels. 516 was there but not checked - now it's listed but TBA.

    we shall see...
