    I started a thread somewhere asking about a Season Pass for "To Be Announced". I don't know why my Roamio keeps wanting to record "To Be Announced" except for the fact that sometimes I record shows when that is all that is there, just in case. Maybe I should have used manual recording in those cases.

    I haven't had anything this weird happen since I was at 100 percent one minute and 39 percent the next. I was at somewhere around 40 percent before, and now I was at 74 percent. My first thought was maybe the software glitch that made all those shows disappear finally made them come back. One show that was recording was "To Be Announced". I didn't even know what that was or how it started recording unless I did say to record but didn't see how long the recording would be), and pressing "play" made something very strange appear, so I cancelled the recording, and all of a sudden I was at something like 45 percent.

    Why do you have a season pass for "To Be Announced?" Better yet why do you have so many TBA's in the guide? Shouldnt have that many unless its at the end of the guide listings (like day 12+)

    Maybe their local tv stations just changed frequency due to the spectrum auction, and now they have no guide data because Tivo hasn't fixed it as of yet?

    Guide data has in general been burping more and more recently. Entire channels are turning into To Be Announced for a while, then going back to normal. I had the entire suggestions bar change to all "To Be Announced"s one day.

    * And not related to the OTA repack. I dread to even imagine how bad that might play out

    ** No need to imagine it, there are threads...

    guess I'm lucky as if there is a TBA its usually near the end of the guide listings (10+ days out). But then again I'm not using my Tivo for cable

    This isn't OTA. I don't have a good antenna yet.

    That's what I don't understand, because no one would choose to do it.

    Delete what? I never did anything. Roamio is deciding to do this all on its own.

    Delete it anyway; no reason to keep delete-able glitches around . . . .

    Unless you have Tivo Suggestions on (and if you did it wouldn't record a TBA) the Tivo only records what you tell it to...be a season (onepass), a one time recording or a manual recording. IN youyr opening post you mention recording TBA

    It may record episodes of a show you dont want it to record (like if you say new only in your season pass but the episode has general guide info) but my Tivo doesnt magically record some random TBA

    Whatever show or Season Pass/OnePass that is there that you don't want.
