    No program data? TV Guide.

    Hey all, I had to do a "Clear todo list" on my box.

    I then forced the daily call after a restart.

    But... I dont have any program data (TV Guide)? The call went thorugh ok, but under info on the web interface I see that the TV guide is only updated to 1 Jan 1970, lol.

    How do I force a reload of the TV Guide?

    Thanks!

    OK, did a force index through telnet, and waited.....

    Got this message when checking:
    [TiVo [p0] ~]# grep 'Sweep done' /var/log/tvlog
    Nov 2 23:45:56 (none) DbGc[185]: Sweep done (eSucceeded) -- rescheduling marking in 61200 sec

    So I guess it worked.

    But still no guide?

    Help!

    Nope, couldnt find that error Grrr

    With the forced index, is it over when the bash prompt comes back or does it carry on in the background?
    The force index only seems to take a few seconds on my machine if its done when the prompt comes back.

    OK, well I tried to do a "Restart Guided Setup" from the reset menu, and the box came back to the main menu with a banner at the bottom of the screen saying that it res reorganising the guide data and it would be available in 4-8 hours.
    Hope this works.

    Anyone else seen this?

    Cheers!

    That is normal. You cannot redo Guided Setup in normal operating mode. The correct procedure is explained here: http://minnie.tuhs.org/twiki/bin/vie...g_Guided_Setup

    Then wait 4-8 hours (even better: overnight) and see what happens.

    It continues in the background for half and hour to many hours depending on the ammount of data to be indexed.
