As of 24th February 2011, your TiVo On-Screen Program Guide will now include "up-to-the-minute*" program times for Channel Nine instead of rounded half hour scheduling. Nine has recently started to provide this program data and we are passing on this benefit to our customers.
This means that from this date onwards every single Network that provides up-to-the-minute program times will now be incorporated into your On-Screen TV guide as part of your TiVo Service.
Historically, all broadcaster(s) provided "rounded" times only and thus, the published times would usually display times to the nearest 1/2 hour (as an example). An "Up-to-the-minute" EPG displays the announced airtime (within 1 minute) of when the broadcaster intends to air the scheduled program. Actual air-times may still vary if the broadcaster has an unannounced program, re-schedule or cancellation (for example, in the event of breaking major news), but otherwise, your recording times will be much more reliable than they have been in the past.
The following networks: Seven, Nine, Ten & ABC will now all display scheduled program start and finish times that are "up-to-the-minute".
These more accurate program times should appear on your TiVo following a successful update connection to the TiVo service in the early hours of the 24th of February.
If your TiVo has not successfully connected to the TiVO Service during this time you can go to "TiVo Central">"Messages & Settings">"Settings">"Network"
>"Connect to the TiVo Service Now" - simply by using your TiVo remote. This change will not affect your existing Season Passes or WishList Searches.
