Has anyone else lost Maori and Te Reo program guide info since they changed transmission to HD? I just get... 'To be announced'.


I have tried a restart and a re-scan.


I'm thinking something needs to be switched over at TiVo HQ but maybe nobody is home there?


I note program guide info TiVo genie is up to date.

The guide data for Maori and Te Reo disappeared for me 2-3 weeks ago. I only record Media Take on Maori tv so I set up a repeating weekly manual recording for it. I figured there wasn't much point in following it up.

With the Tivo service closing down after 31st October, it seems pointless chasing it now. You maybe aware there's a group of Aussies and NZers working on keeping these great machines running past that point. This community supported effort will hopefully be up and running in the next few weeks and all going well will include all NZ channels. To take advantage of this, you'll need to get the surface mount PROM chip replaced with a modified one. (PM me if you want one) and there'll be a software patch that needs to be applied to your Tivo hard disk. The PROM chip can be replaced any time without impacting it's current operation, and the software patch of course is not yet ready.

Yes I'm aware of that and hoping like others that the software comes together.


I just wondered if others have noted the same.  Maybe it is the beginning of the end.
