    Edit by moderator GarySargent:

    This thread contains old (at least a month old) reports of guide data problems. New problems should be reported in this thread and will eventually be archived to this one so that the thread is less cluttered and easier to read.

    ------------------------------


    Why the new thread?

    What was wrong with http://www.avsforum.com/ubbtivo/Forum12/HTML/000200.html (except the embarassment it may cause TiVo)?

    Nothing to do with embarassment, you just posted before I'd had a chance to close the old one [​IMG]. We try not to let threads get too long as it can cause problems with the board software so it's common practice across all forums to close long running threads and start a fresh one (e.g. see the thread(s) about donating for a new server). I've made a few other changes tonight and we now have 3 separate threads to report the type of problems usually found in the old error thread.

    Neil.

    - Problem encountered

    Tonight on BBC1 Watchdog was followed by Top of the Pops. Unfortunately via TIVO, if you recorded both, Watchdog recorded until 7:30, Top of the Pops started 7:35. TOTP was correct, 5 minutes was missed out on Watchdog.

    Seems strange that 5 minutes can go missing from a channel!

    Still nothing like as bad as the ITV schedule tonight which I notice is in a different thread.

    TiVo lists this slot as Sister, Sister. It should be Dharma & Greg.

    I am pretty sure this is a generic problem for UKPANI programmes between 7pm and 8pm. It's as if TiVo did not switch from Nickelodeon to Paramount until an hour late.

    It's only television.

    Sky EPG is also in error for this program as well.

    The whole schedule for SkyPrem1 is wrong - according to Sky's EPG (for example) Fight Club is on at 02:00 - yet Tivo does'nt even have a film starting at 2am!!!

    BTW - what good is this anyway? Is the info passed to Tivo?

    - Programme Name:Buffy the vampire slayer and Angel
    - Time/Date of airing:fridays 8pm and 9pm

    some episodes have corect descriptions but others are a generic description of the program rather than the specific episode and list people that have left the series


    also once the description is in the to do list it does not seem to get updated, therefore you can get two diferent descriptions for the same program depending on whether you look from the to do list or live tv

    Pitsea,...
    In the other thread "Server problems?", is a big issue on the amount of data for BBC, Channel 4 and ITV. It seems a move recently has been to reduce this less than a week. I beleive we must have a full two weeks in advance, upated daily to ensure a full two weeks.

    This needs to be raised with TIVO (has Ted return from paternatity leave or is someone else from Tivo monitoring this forum)and Tribune. Without this the TIVO is no "fit for purpose" and could result in returns stating this for the reason.


    Please Help
