If you want, you can use epg123 and schedules direct instead of TiVo/rovi guide data. This will cost a few dollars a month but use the better tribune/zap2it data.
I just realized, based on the date of my last reply, that it's on Sundays my guide data gets completely screwed up and it starts recording the wrong show/channel for every single recording, this used to occur weekly when the changes were new, then there was no major problems for a few months, and since 1-2 months now my guide data/channels get completely screwed up every Sunday.
I give up, I just can't stand these incompetent idiots making my TV watching hell on earth.
I'm not rich so I'm going to need a cost per month that's more accurate than "a few dollars a month" as that's too vague to know if it's something I can afford or not. Also, if I pay for this, will the guide updates still be done automatically and would there be any differences compared to how it doesn't
work with Rovi?

Let me guess, I'm sure I have something that will prevent me from using this alternatives, here are things that will probably mean it's not an option for me: I'm in Canada and use a Colossus capture card. Am I right? It's not an option for me is it?
Since that other option probably isn't available for me, what are the alternatives, including alternatives to WMC if necessary?
I will not continue having my TV watching turned into hell on earth by the retarded idiots at Rovi, I'm DONE with those *******s.
I know the Rovi data is free, but they're making my life such a living hell I'm wondering if a class action lawsuit would be an option in this sort of situation? I'm not looking for money, I'm looking to get them to fix their major bugs that have been ongoing for well over a year, and if threatening a class action lawsuit is what it takes to scare them into doing their job then we should look into it because I'm dying to have a TV that goes to the channel I choose instead of any random channel causing me to miss all my shows.
Thanks for all the help
