    I made a guide based recording of the TBA for last night's late night on NBC from 11:34 for 2:33 minutes. It has SM! I haven't watched it yet, but it seems the title isn't too important. My TBA recording of The Late Show didn't have SM, but it usually doesn't. As usual, TDS was fine.

    There was a CBS Fall Preview that I set before the time slot changed to TBA. It recorded with the correct name that was in the To Do List.

    Just checked. I'm showing "TBA" all week, except for Friday, but with generic show info, no cast listed. Not sure if it was TBA yesterday, but it did record, also with no cast info. Last week's recordings all have complete descriptions.

    I didn't re-create the OP after I got the new data. This is the same "new only" OP I used with the Gracenote data. I'm curious to see what happens tonite, so I'm going to leave it alone for now.

    Seeing this too. Good thing I saw the thread last night. Had to manually select the "To Be Announced" program at 10:35 PM on CBS

    It's weird. for the most part, it's here and there on some channels. But it makes no sense at all that they would have this on major networks in Prime Time or at the late night hours.

    James Corden's show was OK. Just weird

    System wide. Before I fell asleep with a nasty cold, I checked TV guide for CBS in a bunch of locations. TBA on all of them.

    This is a huge mess. Looks like someone messed up something at the core while updating stuff. Hadn't seen anything like it before on TV guide which I use extensively when traveling or at a bar that has Comcast, etc.

    BTW, tv.com had the data. All a big mess.

    So it's not just limited to TiVo

    Were you seeing TBA for EVERYTHING on CBS? Because that's not what I see. It's just a few time slots

    I just posted in the Rovi thread. I do see a few TBA's but even when the correct program title is there, MANY times the program description is generic so you can't tell what episode it is or is about or who is a guest is(in the case of late night tv).

    It's a complete mess at this point.

    I'm on Charter in CT.

    I have "To Be Announced" listed for the remainder of this week's THE VIEW on ABC, the remainder of this week's HARRY on Fox, and for KEVIN CAN WAIT on CBS next Monday.

    For now, I am closely monitoring my DVR recordings and inputting manual recordings, but this is extremely annoying and I sincerely hope it is resolved soon.

    Very disappointing.

    What's unfortunate is TiVo wants us to report these issues one at a time. I told them it should not be our responsibility to report the TBA issues. They should be able to find these themselves. It would literally take all day to fill these out on their lineup form. And then it would not be read for a week or two.

    In history from yesterday, 'No longer in guide' was the reason for not recording Great Performances on PBS, John Oliver on HBO, MSNBC news shows, Tonight Show NBC, Colbert CBS.

    What's weird is that for this afternoon/evening, the guide shows my MSNBC news shows with a check indicating scheduled to record, but To Do doesn't have them. Yesterday guide had 'To Be Announced' for all of MSNBC.

    I'm Comcast in the SF Bay Area.

    No. I wasn't clear. Specific time slots but all over geographically. Cable and OTA.

    I just forced a connection on one of my Bolts. It's been about 15 minutes, and I've only loaded 37% of the info. Box isn't recording, so this may be a major new influx of GUIDE data. Fingers-crossed.

    TV guide is still messed up so don't hold your hopes high.

    John Oliver shouldn't have been affected by this. It was a rerun this week; I suspect what happened is it was in the guide when it had generic data, then when the actual data came down TiVo took it out of your To Do List, because the generic episode was no longer there.

    Unless you're set to record reruns, in which case there's a real problem. But the reasons for not recording things have always been...quirky.

    For grins, I checked the guide on my Time Warner Cable cable box. For tonight, it DOES have "Late Show With Stephen Colbert" in the 10:35 PM slot. TiVo does not.

    However, Time Warner Cable guide has the 10:35 PM on ABC marked as "TBA" and TiVo has it as "Jimmy Kimmel Live"


    this is so strange.

    Foiled. Despite disconnecting all my ethernet cables my bastard mutant boxes found my wireless network and connected anyway against my wishes. Now my data is messed up even more. It's like HAL 9000. Make it stop.

    Thanks. I've never noticed the 'Not Available - No Longer in Guide' reason for not recording before. Was it always there?

    What about my MSNBC shows being in guide with checks indicating they'll be recorded, but not in To Do list? Yesterday the guide showed TBA and didn't record, but with them showing in guide today, am really confused.

    Are you posting that MSNBC now has show titles? If so, when was your last connection?
