TiVo now identifies Comcast chanel 810 as "WBTS-LD", although I doubt
that's too meaningful to the average consumer, and has the NBC
schedule on it.

Last year, as a part of their merger with $I_FORGET, TiVo switched EPG
data providers.  They had been using Tribune (hmmm, is this Tronc
now?) but the new provider is part of the same corporate ownership as
TiVo is now -- however, their data is significantly lower in quality.
I'm not surprised it took them a week to change: probably didn't
bother to do anything until they started receiving complaints from
paying customers.
