Funny. I usually blame Microsoft when this happens on my Media Center - it's usually Microsoft's fault when guide data starts running out. Now I find out it's because their upstream provider (guess who?) is the cause of the short data.

Yesterday's afternoon update took us up to February 10th so we didn't have to wait until Monday this time (it also fixed a number of issues with multiple SeriesId's for several shows).

I've been having the usual daily connection but my guide data only goes out 10 days. Not shocked. Hopefully, as they have the other numerous times lately, it will catch up at some point soon.

I saw that this morning. Now for a slight twist, I plugged in my Premiere and its guide now goes to 3/2. Both Roamio boxes seem stuck at 2/28. Maybe it's a Leap Year bug. o_O

Hey Joe! (Oh, I loved that song...you might not be as old as I) hehe - anyway, I just checked my Premiere and it's also up thru 2/28. It connects again tomorrow morning at 4-something.

My Bolt, which is through 2/27, is scheduled to connect today still at 1pm. No high hopes. I stopped getting paranoid about this, as I'm sure you have also, by this point because it always gets there - sooner or later.

I think it's again the disconnect between OTA guide data and cable guide data that we saw a few weeks ago on a weekend. I no longer have hope that the cable data will be updated today so that will make 4 days between updates IF it comes in tomorrow. The OTA guide data skipped a day a couple of days ago but it's now more or less up to date.

The funny thing is the cable guide data is more up to date in the TiVo App but when I try to schedule programs on the App that don't match my boxes' guide data it says Error - unable to connect to box - try again later.

I guess that explains why the HBO data hasn't been fixed for tonight. The premiere of Crashing runs for an extra five minutes and then John Oliver starts five minutes late.

If I wasn't constantly checking Screener's listings against what my box says I'd be getting missed/cut off recordings. Tivo's incompetence continues.

edit: And just like series5orpremier says a few posts up it's correct on Tivo Online, but even though I just forced an update it's not correcting itself on my box.

Thanks for that info. I'm recording both and I had no idea. Of course, my guide doesn't reflect that either so I made some adjustments.

This sure is frustrating. Now, both of the Tivos I'm currently using only have 8 days of guide data and both of them have already connected for today. *sigh*

Usually, when a good company goes bad I tend to cut out and move on but I'm just not in a position to do that with Tivo. That's what is so frustrating about it. I'm very loyal to companies that sell good products and provide good customer service. The one adjustment that I HAVE made is to stop recommending them.

You can manually connect one or both at any time (Settings --> Network --> Connect to the TiVo Service now) but that won't help you unless the guide update becomes available on TiVo's servers before you connect.

I learned a while back to not even bother with that when they have successfully connected, but the guide info is still not updated. It never updates. Liek you said - the guide update needs to be there and, once again, it is not. Boneheads.

I got an email today asking me to complete a survey about how the service was when I contacted Tivo TODAY.

Uh, what? I haven't contacted them in ages, at least since things went south last year with all this Rovi stuff and moving support out of the country to folks who haven't been able to be helpful.

I did manage to leave some feedback. :D I was honest.

I had to be announced on History today for a couple hours. Had HGTV on this morning and the programming and guide didn't match at all from 8am to noon, when I left the house. Of course FS1 didn't get updated with the NASCAR race change from last night either.
