    None of you mentioned the fact that many of us in the Boston area who use TiVO for over-the-air antenna signals, rather than cable or FIOS, get our NBC Boston signals via channel 60.5. TiVo's guide only shows channel 60.5 as WBTS-LD and programs as To Be Announced, so temporarily, we've had to look at some other program guides (such as titantv, and then to set up manual recording for 60.5 and the applicable time on the TiVo. NBC programs that we have set up One Pass for to automatically record aren't recording. MANY of us have requested fixes from TiVo via lineup change forms, calls, emails, etc. but so far, although we've received a return email with a "Case ID," nothing has been fixed. I suppose it's holiday time, so the TiVo staff might have been a bit light, but now that New Years' holidays have passed, let's hope that they get this fixed. If any TiVo people are reading this, the new Boston NBC-owned TV statiion's phone number is 617-630-5000, so I hope someone there calls the station and gets this straightened out so this gets fixed quickly on our TIVOs for everyone, including those of us in the Boston area who are watching via antenna on 60.5.

    I tried to report this and got the standard battery of irrelevant questions about whether I live in a house or apartment, what is Verizon's phone number, what is currently showing, etc. Then I got the standard "Thank you for that information. I have filed a lineup report for you on this issue. This should be fixed in the next 5-7 business days." I asked if there was some way to give this some urgency and was told that it could take longer depending on whether the lineup team is behind then was given instructions on how to set up manual recording. Perfectly useless.

    This really is infuriating. I decided that this is going to be broken for the foreseeable future and just scheduled the upcoming shows for which I have 1Ps tomorrow and Thursday. Additionally, I had to manually hit the button on Vikings next week and Sleepy Hollow because the data that IS there is such crap.

    It's fixed! I now see correct guide data for FIOS 16 and 516 (475 was corrected too)

    60-5 Success!!
    TiVo OTA 60-5 is loaded as of my 3pm "Connect to the TiVo service now" attempt.
    I also got an "Important Message" indicating that 60-4 WNEUDT4 and 60-5 WMFPDT5 had been added. (I don't get 60-4 in Weston with an indoor antenna.)
    Looking at my Ch. 7-1 NBC season passes, I now see 60-5 along with the previously existing 8.1 entries (no 7-1 entries, of course).
    (I have a TiVo HD XL, which I just added to my profile; haven't been here for quite a while.)

    Yep, came home to the message about a lineup change and voila, programming info has been updated for Verizon's lineup.

    It did work for me with FIOS. When I got home all was good... picked up the correct info for my season passes as well.

    My Tivo guide has been fine for 810, but my season passes were not recording for NBC.
    I had to go into 'One Pass Manager' and modify options for NBC shows (set to 807) and set channel to 810.
    If your channels are set to 'All', you are probably fine.
    I didn't realize that One Pass had a specific channel or 'all' choice, and mine are all set to a specific channel.
    It gave me a chance to cleanup my One Pass for shows no longer on TV.
    I have comcast.
