I think Directv sends the info to Tribune. I guess it could be either ones fault.

the channels / networks send data to Tribune who DirecTV has contracted to populate the EPG

I would say you are to blame since you didn't look at your "To Do List" last night....LOL

kinda hard to place blame, Its tough for them to keep track of every channel and every programming each day.

Its like with discounts, its hard for any company to offer each member a discount over the phone or email. So many subs not enough time.

and if DIrectv updates the guide it can screw with timers too

Couple weeks ago when the NASCAR race was rained out and rescheduled for Monday I scheduled it from 10-1:30 as they (ESPN) said it would be on. Guide said sportscenter. Well that morning they (D*) updated the guide so my timer got bumped to the next time SC was on which was right after the race

well the update missed one of the football games I wanted to record. Thats what bothers me. On one of the BIg10 alt it was scheduled from 11-2:30. This morning they must have updated it to 11-2 and for some reason it didnt record

Not sure why you'd think this..:confused:

Don't be so confused! ;) Apparently it's the providers that send the info to Tribune, not Directv.
