    I'ts not even finding "Cracked" which is to premier on Reelz on 30 August.

    I remember when I first stared using it, it would add the series link to the distant networks that I don't even get. It never put them on my local channels.

    It didn't get Hell On Wheels for me either a few days ago. Had to manually set it up for the 3AM repeat, hope next weeks goes ok.

    Far In Advance is still failing.

    Ravenwood (ABC Family/311) made it to Guide today, but the Series Manager FIA failed to notice it. Had to setup a manual Series Manager.

    Then I wouldn't have expected it to populate yet. It seems they wait for quite a while sometimes till the show airs to populate it seems.

    I haven't had any problems with it. Of course, I never remember I've used it and I do set a couple HRs for every new program as soon as the NY Daily News announces the new show. OK, I guess I've gotta say I don't really know if it works... :sure:

    It has only missed one Far In Advance setup for me the whole time we've had it. I'm not considering that it only catches it the day of air as a "problem" or "issue".

    I'm confused. Why I'd you say you had to set up a manual sl then?

    This is the problem with FIA. Some things show up months in advance, others don't. It limits its usefulness.

    Unfortunately, like many other things, it is dependent on guide data which, as we know, has a long standing tradition of being unreliable.

    I actually didn't think that went through Tribune, there is no specific channel info, time or day.

    There's a day and I think a time listed if a premier date has been announced. I know when I setup the FIA's for this year's fall season many listed the day and, I'm pretty sure, time of the premier.

    A real far off FIA I found is Fargo FX for Apr '14. That's like what, a half a year away.

    Why are Far-In_Advance shows not in the DirecTV online Guide database?

    When will the DirecTV Far-In-Advance DVR feature be allow to get schedule via their online television Guide?
