Has anyone else noticed that the guide data is incorrect on a few channels in a few time slots. For example I have Dora the Explorer set to tape on nick east at 9:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Nickelodeon must have changed the show at that time slot because Sponge Bob is on at that those time slots now and not Dora. Also last night at 9:00 p.m. my wife was flipping channels and noticed that Income property was on HGTV at 9:00 p.m., but the guide data said Holmes on Homes was on. I've noticed incorrect guide data on a few other channels as well, but these are two firm examples that I can remember the channel, show, and time.

Yeah, I noticed this on Nick also. The guide showed Penguins of Madagascar but it was Spongebob instead.

I checked at zap2it.com (they supply the guide data) and the info there was the same as my D* guide. I went ahead and reported it so they could get it fixed. I just checked and it looks like they haven't got to it yet.

You can report it here.

Noticed the same thing on Holmes on Homes last night. It was in the guide, but show wasn't on.

yup, we've been getting lots of weird issues with our recorded kids shows on Nick networks and sprout too I think.

I've noticed a lot of the channels have no guide data available. I first noticed it on just a few channels on Tuesday (07/20) night and then last night Wed. (07/21) there were even more channels with no guide data. Most were in the 230 to 271 area as the Lifetimes, Style, History International, etc. in there were all blank. USA was all blank except for the Psych episode at 9PM CT. There were probably over a dozen channels that normally have the programming listed and were for some reason blank.

I'm not at home right now to look but I think there was another block with a lot of holes up around the Disney and Nick areas of the channels as well.

Yep . . I've seen this a couple times as well.

I setup Morgan Freeman's Through the Wormhole to record as a series and just last night I began watching it. I had perhaps 5-6 shows recorded and two of them were the wrong titles and wrong shows entirely. In fact I had two that were tited differently but in fact were the same show. It really messed up my series recording cause now my DVR "thinks" I've already recorded one show when in fact I have not.

I've also ended up with a couple movies that were entirely different than what they were supposed to be.

The shows that air at 6P EDT are on the air like listed but the program summary is all wrong... :rolleyes:

I had that problem with one of my DVRs a couple of weeks ago. I refreshed it through the web site and then everything showed up OK.

NickHD has been doing this for a few weeks here I set a series recording for SpongeBob and it's recording iCarly instead, not every time but enough to be annoying...

Yeap, I went to record 24 Hour Restaurant Wars on Food Network and it was an Old Iron Chef.

I don't know about HGTV and Food Network, but apparently with Nickelodeon, it's intentional.
