You have to check out the EPG for any of the HBO channels airing a movie entitled "Raging Bulls" with the following description: "sexy black and white studs stroke and devour each other's engorged beef hammers then pounded deep into snug bottoms until they're fully drained." (currently showing on the EPG at HBO 2 East now between 7:55 and 10:05 p.m.)

Do you think the morons at Rovi got the Robert De Niro boxing movie Raging Bull confused with the gay porno movie Raging Bulls?

Are you listening Charlie, The Listener? This is what Rovi is selling you and this is what Rovi is giving us: an EPG not only with incorrect information but a program description inappropriate to those young enough to access HBO on the EPG. Is this not a slam dunk "I'm going to Disneyland" example of what a stupid mistake it was to change to Rovi. Maybe Gracenote wanted more money; I get it but was the alternative really better. Charlie could have agreed then turned around and sued Gracenote for changing the terms of the middle of a contract. This is just awful stupid incompetency morons at Rovi and slightly lesser people at dish who made the decision (we all know only one man at Dish could approve such a major switch) to another way from Gracenote. I think the idea is if you're changing providers for metadata make it an improvement not a diminished experience to your prized Hopper and Hopper 3 and Dish products..

OK, but would have preferred highlihgt the mother of mistakes angle and incorrect metadata angle over inappropriate angle. How about "Rovi Mess: Mother of Rovi Incompetence EPG" as the thread title? Thanks :).

I'm sorry, but I had to LOL at the description in the guide.
I understand the humor. It just really ticks me off at this is how Incorrect and awful the Rovi metadata is. it's a mess and I've had to create a new timer once again for a show which the old-timer no longer records. please read the info description for any of the I Love Lucy shows on Hallmark Channel they are moronic descriptions.

HBO2E comes up that way here, too. Maybe we should call Dish and demand something more wholesome like Cinemax? ;)

I hate to say it, but HBO has "adult" movies on some of its channels and Adult Situations will be listed in the description. It is HBO, after all, and not ABC Family. And guide mistakes will be made. "Raging Bulls" instead of "Raging Bull" is a bit overboard, I'll admit.

The thread title was changed by the moderator to highlight the inappropriate angle. That wasn't what bothered me what bothered me was how utterly confused and messed up the Rovi metadata is such that now we have an utterly ridiculous example of the latest screw up. so it's much less about inappropriateness and much more about the mess that were all having to deal with regarding the new Rovia metadata. further, for those who care, I am unaware of HBO being part of the hide of Adult channels feature therefore anybody can access HBO. the point is the metadata should match the movie list it and if it does not then look out and one may get a mother of a mistake. the inappropriate part of the Rovi mistake is just whipped cream on top of the sundae.

Also HBO Cinemax air so-called soft p*** content with descriptions that are deliberately non-sexual and imply romance and not the stuff of Raging Bulls content and that detailed description. I believe that is referred to as hard core. so there really is no comparison.

Sometimes I will see on the guide a stupid infomercial called Breaking Bald. Rovi EPG thinks it is AMC's Breaking Bad complete with the picture and description for Breaking Bad instead.

My wife saw this in the guide yesterday and told me that HBO was running gay porn now. She recorded it and when it was done we started it and it was Raging Bull and there was no "devouring of beef hammers " or "pounding in snug bottoms "to be seen. I laughed and said : Oh Rovi. :cool:
