Just wanted to report that I lost TVGOS guide data from Cox Cable in Fairfax VA on all my Panny recorders (they are set up in various rooms in the house so it is does not appear to be an analog outlet issue) sometime over the past week or so and am receiving all analog channels normally so it does not appear to be a signal strength issue. I am feeding all my recorders directly from the analog cable not through a cable box. Just wanted to put it out there to see if anyone else in Fairfax is experiencing the same issue (or not!) to verify it is not just a local setup issue at my house. Thanks.

The Future ain't what it used to be...

I am surprised that anyone, anywhere is still getting TVGOS. I thought it had collapsed into obscurity long ago, and it did in most places. You are lucky to have had it last this long.

Actually I get OTA digital TVGOS all the time on my Sony LCD. It's quite reliable but really doesn't do our legacy analog devices much good.

My Cox TVGOS here in Phoenix is still working, although last month all the ads went away. That scared me.

My son in Santa Monica has TW, and while on vacation last week his TVGOS disappeared. He did a reset when he got home and he got the grid back, PLUS the ads.

I lost TVGOS here with Cox New Orleans about a year ago using my Panny. Local PBS who I think sends out the signal said Cox signal had to be reset, but still did not work. It was useful while working instead of manually setting.

TVGOS still coming in fine here in Montreal (with Videotron analog cable on a pair of Toshiba RD-XS35s).

The sad thing is I hardly ever use it anymore, since moving to HD on an HTPC with WMC, which also has a good (free!) program guide, and recording space is only limited by the HDDs you install on your machine - in the case of this box, 10,750 TB.
