    The realignment has started for Anne Arundel/Howard County, MD today, 9/17/08. I've already sent the form email to TiVo about the lineup issue. Hopefully, they get it straightened out in time for the weekend.

    Happend last night what a cluster @#$@#$ Had to spend 2 hours on the phone with verizon just to get the cable cards to tune to any channels. Now I can get all the new channels 1800's 1900's etc but will have to wait for Tivo to update the guide.

    Homecontrol,

    Did the rep give you any time frame on when the guide would be updated?

    Yeah. I'm in the SE PA area and I switched mine to South Jersey a week ago, things have been fine. South Jersey seems to have a few more channels then PA, though..

    my neighbor called this AM and was told within 24 hours. No luck as of 8:15pm, I just forced connections on all 3 of my HD units.

    pardon the ignorance- do we have to call VZ to get the cablecards reauthorized for HD channels or should everything fall back in place once the guide is realigned?

    I don't think you will have to call to get you CC's reauthorized. I'm getting Showtime, Starz & TMC at their new locations. Also some of the data has been upload, but not much. Chans 507, 509 & 510 have the new channels listed, but only the channel's name and no info. We'll see what tomorrow will bring.

    No call necessary. The cable cards are independent of what the guide shows.

    As expected my guide data is completely trashed, missed all my shows tonight.

    I knew this was coming for months, everyone knew it was coming for months..... after many other areas had issues you would think TIVO would get on the ball...... (I pay TIVO for guide data, no one else, they should have been prepared)

    Howard...
    I'd been having pixellation difficulties with several national HD channels (ESPN, ESPN2, TNTHD, NFLHD, HDNET and HDNETHD) that I couldn't solve with attenuators or a low-pass filter, but so far I'm seeing no pixellation on these channels since the realignment started. Keeping my fingers crossed, but I'm hoping that there's been some kind of upgrade at the CO or VHO level that has permanently solved this nagging problem. Being able to actually watch these channels makes up for any lineup snafus in my book!


    Edit: Looks like I spoke too soon. !@#$-ing pixellation is back. Somehow, I got one whole day with a good picture on all channels, but that party's over. Completely disgusted with this...

    I've tried forcing a couple of updates on both my S3's but so far no joy on the new guide update (I'm also in Howard Co.). At least now I'm finally getting the Sci-Fi Channel in HD! The guide shows up correctly on mhy other STBs but so far the Tivos haven't caught up yet.

    Has this happened for No. Va. yet? As mentioned in a couple of other threads I just switched to FIOS so I'm curious if the system has gone through this yet or if it's something to look "forward" too ;)

    No. VA throws the switch on Monday Sept. 22. Just in time for all the season premiere's! I'm glad I have an antenna, all my season passes are set up on one Tivo for the OTA channels, the other TIVO is set up to record on the FIOS channels. Hopefully I won't miss anything.

    That sucks. Guess I'll have to setup the FIOS DVR to record things next week just to make sure...

    My HD STB guide has been showing the 17th and 18th, but there is still no change this morning. I was hoping it would be this week so everything could get starightened out before all the shows premiering next week. I had to set up some OTA recordings as backups for everything in case I have problems.

    I just called Verizon (again), and they said it usually "takes TiVO a week to get the updated data from Verizon". Since I don't think Tivo get the data directly from Verizon, but from Tribune, I'm not sure how much faith to put into that estimate.

    Woohoo, did a manual update and got new channel line-up. AND, Tivo correctly re-mapped out season passes! Sweet.

    This is in Anne Arundel County, MD

    It's almost 2 weeks since the lineup change (2 more days) and Tivo still hasn't updated the guide. I've already spoken with them at the 1 week mark and the rep had no clue when it was going to be fixed. I think I need to start thinking about taking my business elsewhere especially since more changes are coming within the next 30 days or so.
