    Updating of Guide

    My TiVo working fine for some time now after upgrade.

    I notice, in the menu's to do with the guide, it keeps saying something along the lines of "only 2 days of guide data left", and a message tells you to connect to update it.

    Do I have to manually do this, or if I leave it, will it simply update itself before the guide runs out?

    Thanks

    I saw this in the FAQ. May be a solution...

    In my experience I have to trigger the update manually. I am trying to find a way to trigger it automatically. It is (in theory) possible to telnet into the TiVo and add a cron job but the unknown for me is what command to run. The interface between the Linux operating system and the TV app side I find difficult. Maybe there is a TyDB file on the MFS partition that can be tweaked using dbset.

    I use TiVo Series 3 (HD).
    I haven't see a message about "only 2 days of guide data left".
    Currently OzTiVo for Series 3 is only supplying guide info for 3 days at a time (today, tomorrow, the day after).
    I don't think we have a Nonag channel for S3.
    For me connecting to TiVo service (which gets new guide data) happens automatically about every 25-26 hours, but it can be manually triggered with Messages & Settings > Settings > Network Settings > Connect to TiVo service now.
    In Network Settings it should say "Next attempt" with the date and time when it will next try to connect automatically to tivo service. There should be no need to use cron for connecting to tivo service.

    Unless you want to avoid having to trigger it manually, which I do.

    I am not aware of something which would cause a TiVo not to connect automatically, but if we get more
    information, maybe we can troubleshoot why that is happening and/or work out how to fix it.
    It would help to know what it says in Network Settings. (TiVo > Messages & Settings > Settings > Network.)

    That should say Last attempt date & time, Last attempt status, and when the next attempt is scheduled for.
    Knowing that should give us some ideas of whether it is trying to connect automatically and failing,
    or it is not scheduling an attempt for 25-26 hours after the last one (like TiVos normally do).

    If there is a connection currently in progress, then wait until after it succeeds or fails to see that info
    on last attempt and next attempt.

    This is also an answer for

    Well, just seems strange that I only commented at tea time that I hadn't encountered any problems with guide data and such,
    just noticed the program guide has jumped forward 3 hours, when it was 8:00 pm the guide was messed up and saying 11:00 pm at the top.
    Tried a reboot, but still comes up with 3 hour advanced time.

    Edit: 8:30 pm and after reboot time was still 3 hours advanced, but after a few minutes came correct. Service connection still in progress, whether from reboot or from scheduled time of next service connection, which I noticed earlier today was for 11:30 pm, which was the incorrect time on my guide data at 11:30pm.

    It's got me bamboozled.

    Mine connects automatically too. Every 25-26 hours. I feel fortunate in the sense I have had no issues with getting the Tivo up and running again.
