Why did TIVO tell me to rerun setup?

When the last phone call occurred for my SA TIVO series 2, it told me
I needed to rerun the guided setup portion relevant to my signal
source. I get most of my channels from DISH. It said DISH had made a
change, so it followed that TIVO needed to have part of the setup
rerun.

What gives? Why did that happen?

Going out on a limb here, I am going to guess that DISH made a change which
required you to go through guided setup again. Purely a guess, you
understand.

C'mon - all the same channels all the time. Nothings different. This
just seems bizarre and useless.

And it may be - wouldn't be the first time a CSR gave out bogus
instructions. Like PC support - when in doubt reboot. If that
doesn't work - reinstall.

What problem, if any, caused you to call support?
