    Just letting everyone know if affected and someone else saw the message and didn't bother to mention it.

    Please note, your TiVo program grid guide may be one hour off from what is scheduled to air. The daylight savings time change was inadvertently activated one day early. You're scheduled recordings will still function as normal. The TiVo team sincerely apologize for any confusion.

    One Roamio has made its daily service connection and the guide is correct. Two have not yet made their connections and both are correct. When is this supposed to break? Is it time zone dependent?

    Reading the OP again, it seems that we should have seen the problem already. I'm confused.

    I’m also confused by that since the DST changes aren’t in the guide data. Checking my Roamio I can see two 1 am blocks this evening which means the box knows that’s when DST changes.

    All I will say is this, if you have a show scheduled to start around 2 AM local time or shortly after, do not record it, find another time it is playing. You will get screwed. Avoid it at all costs.

    Sounds like something Tivo would do.

    What if there is no other option? ;)

    program I am recording is on at 9PM and the "2nd" 1AM slot. 9PM have too many things set to record...I'll take my chances

    Tivo's been pretty good over the years at handling the time change. But to be safe, maybe pad the 1 a.m. show by an hour.

    The way I read the message was that the guide display is wrong, but the data itself is correct. Which makes sense to me, since (having spent many years dealing with raw guide data processing), the raw guide data is almost always in UTC (GMT for the legacy people, Zulu for those of a certain background), and recordings would nominally be scheduled based on UTC, and only the UI converts for local time (since the silly humans do not like UTC displays). Of course, TiVo may have chosen a different way.

    I just cruised through half a dozen or so channels and most of them look right but a couple don't (my connection was about an hour ago, I believe). Better go through my 'to do' and see if that appears unaffected.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Why do things get wonky around time changes anymore? A bunch of my shows had incorrect info when I hit the info button but were correct otherwise. Then they fixed themselves. And wishlist times are reporting wrong again.

    I have a different problem. I live in Arizona (we don't do daylight savings time). My Series 3 is showing the time as an hour later than it should be (showing 6:52 a.m., but it is only 5:52 here). The zip code is correct and I tried connecting to the service, but the time is still wrong.

    There are a few proposals at the state and federal level (there is a federal law involved) to allow states to end standard time and just stay on daylight savings time all the year, which could "solve" this problem (for the US, at least). The (original) arguments for daylight vs standard time are mostly anachronisms and/or unproven, but getting a large percentage of the US population to agree on anything is difficult in this day and age.

    Today my TiVo Bolt decided to delete ALL my recordings. There are only about 3 or 4 recordings present that were scheduled after 2AM this morning. Everything it deleted is in the recently deleted folder, but it’s a royal inconvenience it recover them one by one. Did this happen to anyone else?

    Personally, I'd call and let TiVo know, for its "software oddities" compendium.
