Tv Listings - To be announced

Currently on a Tivo 500, I'm seeing "terrestrial" channels from 29th  Aug onwards displaying "to be announced" on the program guide. All other satellite channels have full details up to 3rd Sept 01.00am. 

I've tried a reboot, Connect to Virgin Media Services and a Delete & reset without any success.  No other issues with watching or instantly recording.  

Any suggestions?

That’s normal. The terrestrial channels are always last to populate.

Don’t worry, mine is the same. It’ll update over the weekend.

Here’s mine at the moment:

Re: Tv Listings - To be announced

Is this going the same way as the Sky EPG and only listing 7 days at a time?

Re: Tv Listings - To be announced

No, the Guide is 7 days backward and 14 days forward. Most channels are close to that but the terrestrial channels tend to be laggards.

There are very few situations where you actually need 14 days ahead anyway.

Re: Tv Listings - To be announced

The only other thing to check is that your box is reliably connecting to get updates approximately every 6 hours.

Follow Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Network. Check in the top-left that your box isn't missing connections.

Otherwise as per Ernie! Terrestrial channels tend to populate anytime from Friday morning through to Saturday afternoon, for the second week.

Re: Tv Listings - To be announced

I live in Wales and I have listings for BBC 1 wales HD all up to date but for BBC 2 wales I only have that up to next Sunday although I have BBC 2 England up to date.  And there are no listings from Friday onwards for BBC 4. All other channels are up to date.  I have tried forcing a manual connection to the network, although this didn't seem to be the problem, and although it successfully connected the tv guide still shows 'to be announced' for these channels.  Is this the same for others? If not any ideas on what a t I can do?
