Re: TiVo EPG is not updating

I've also had no guide update since Thursday morning. All BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 channels & W are showing as To Be Announced from next week.

And every Channel from Saturday morning 3 September. Doing the update manually does nothing. I called 150 and they're sending an engineer to investigate.

Re: TiVo EPG is not updating

I would cancel the visit - they are likely to replace your box and you'll loose all the recordings.

There is nothing wrong with your box -  although you should have Channel 4 listings for next week.

There is an issue somewhere which VM are aware of which means all TiVo boxes not to be updating listings at present.

Re: TiVo EPG is not updating

On Ozsat's advice, I cancelled the engineer visit. I've no problem loosing my recordings as all I have is season finales.

What I don't want to do is to have to set up manual recordings for every show I watch, where all it says in My Shows is To be announced.

I can't believe that VM allowed the most important part of TiVo to fail. Without the guide, the TiVo is usless.

Re: TiVo EPG is not updating

There are lots of channels showing programmes  'To Be Announced' from Saturday 27/08 onwards including BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 5

Are Virgin Media going to start charging extra for this info, or are the deliberately trying to lose customers with TIVO software updates that slow it down to a snails pace, and further price increases.

Re: TiVo EPG is not updating

You should be able to set up Ripper Street on BBC2 HD (162) but it needs New & Reruns, not New Only.

Re: TiVo EPG is not updating

I think I'll nip out and buy a copy of the Radio Times. While I'm out, I'll get a cardboard box to send my TIVO box back in.
