    Lots of earlier postings, but... CBS announced changes in its Monday proramming last Thursday, and it's STILL not reflected in the guide. How do they get their info...Pony Express?

    Tivo uses the same crappy guide data that TV Guide uses [Rovi], very inaccurate in many ways, my cable system uses Gracenote which seems to be better, I never rely 100% on Tivo's guide and re-check it with my cable box's guide

    Say what you will about Comcast (and I say a LOT about Comcast), but their guide is far superior to TiVOs, at least for the listings. The UI is nowhere near as good as TiVO, but if it doesn't have the correct listings...I always check the Comcast guide to make sure.

    TiVo used to use Gracenote too. It was much better. But then Rovi bought TiVo, so of course that means TiVo had to start using Rovi guide data instead. It is slowly improving but it is still nowhere near as reliable as Gracenote.
