Why can't we have more than a weeks worth of guide data? All be it, it might be bad data with FYI behind the scenes, but when you see a commercial that says starting next Tuesday x/x/x, it would be nice to go and schedule the show.

I can see 14 days today, but for a long time recently I could never see more than 7 or 8. Way back, 6 years ago, I could always see 14 but that changed, I think in the last year or so. But at least right now for me it is 14 as matcarl says.

 

Could it be VHO dependent?

Interestingly though, when I go into the Menu, go down to Settings, and look at System Information, it always says 8 days. Yet I can scroll forward through the Guide a day at a time, and after 8 days there is a brief pause before it will display the next two days, then a brief pause again, etc, until I get to 14, where it won't go any further. But even immediately after going out 14 days, System Information still shows only 8 days.

 

Inquiring minds want to know.....

The box caches around 10 ten days, if you ask for more it pulls it down from their servers or wherever it gets it from. Every day around 11AM eastern time, the box updates the cached portion in case any program info changed.

Mine only shows about a week. If I go out past 7-8 days it just shows Not Available. My Cisco wished came true?Smiley Sad

 

Better picture or better guide?Smiley Frustrated

System Information with IMG 1.8 always showed 10 days - IMG 1.9 always stops it at 8 days.
