After I re-booted, I ran the test but that still didnt fix my "to do list" unfortunately.



Looks like my todo list is starting to rebuild after reboot.

Where's that fingers crossed emoticon?

The guide data returned w/o a reset on the Philips. I'll check my HR when my nephew is done playing Skate 2.

lost guide on my new HR21 and HR10-250, but not my Tivo R10 . Rebooted HR10-250, fine for a minute, then moved ahead to 7/14/09. Also had a message about not dialing in 114 days.

Showing 7/14 here, but what brought it to my notice was that the entire Season 3 of 'Dexter' that I downloaded is now gone (it was set to expire 5/29). :new_cussi:kickbutt:

I too had the lost guide data on the HR20-700 at 6:30. Did the RBR and guide data came back. Started watching a movie and ten minutes into it the box did the blank thing again. Lost guide data again.

Just noticed that both my non-dvr boxes also got wacked - H20-100 and H23-600.

My 2 H20-600's suffered the same loss of guide. I've rebooted one of them and it cleared it up. I also have a Sony Hd300 hooked up to a SD TV and did NOT have any issues with losing the guide.

this reminds me of the time where they f'd up the firmware upgrade and sent it to every unit in the country at 7:30pm, right before prime time and gummed up everyones systems for over an hour.

or more.

One HR20 lost its mind and the other HR20 seems to be unaffected. 7/14 date here as well. A reboot fixed mine.

My wife has been watching the Duke/Texas game since 7:30.

I told her not to check the guide or do anything else to mess it up.

I'll check the status of the HR20-100 when the game is over.

The H20-100 seems to be fine. Still shows 3/21 as the date.

You've got to be kidding! No March Madness! My to do list is empty, will it repopulate if the problem gets fixed?


Last time this happened the to do list re populated but it took a few hours. BTW I just rebooted and my MMM Channels are still gone. UGH!!

Guide data was gone on 1 HR20 and noticed the date being Tues 7/14 and did a reboot before coming here. Checked another HR20 and it was fine. It is currently playing a movie to DVD. Guide was back after reboot but todo is empty. Added 3 manual recordings and saw a 4th appear. It is a repeat that it shouldn't have picked up.

This is going to be a mess. :confused:

HR21-700 running Friday night's CE lost all guide data and kicked me out of a VOD I was watching (15 minutes into movie, about 30% downloaded) at 8:30pm Central.

RBR and multiple System tests do not solve issue.

Switching to backup Sony Sat (OLD SCHOOL) guide looked fine... until I scrolled right to two hours later... tried to acquire guide data from sat, failed, set date to 7/14, lost ALL guide data.

Called DirecTV, on-hold message states that they are aware of problem related to "To Be Announced" in guide data and will have it fixed "as soon as possible".

I don't recall seeing an outage/screwup of this magnitude before... looks to be related to sats/time code/clocks/guide data. Will be an interesting story once the event is complete (if we ever get the full scoop!).

Same here on my HR22. Rebooted - guide data came back - but after a few minutes the screen blanked and all guide data was lost. MLS Direct Kick no longer works...

Actually there have been two times (not counting whatever is happening tonight), that the firmware upgrade has been pushed in primetime.
