    Time/Date Of Airing: Weekdays @ 6:30pm

    Problem: Generic Programme Title

    I first listed this error months ago.......but nothing's been done about it. :(

    TiVo has it listed as Regional News; Weather, the proper programme title is Reporting Scotland.

    Digiguide has it listed correctly. :up:

    Great, it is good to see the abc1 listing - now complete for two weeks. :)

    DigiGuide (which is often ahead of the TiVo listings) doesn't have any details yet which is really poor. :( (If I'm wrong then please correct me.)

    Talking Technology isn't listed as a separate programme, (although it is a separate 25 minute programme in its own right), DigiGuide lists it as follows......

    SPORT: Up All Night
    Channel: BBC Radio Five Live 855
    Date: Monday 27th September 2004
    Time: 01:00 to 05:00 (starting in 1 day)
    Duration: 4 hours.
    Stories from around the world. Including at 2.35 Tech Update with Phil Elliott; 4.50 Show Business with Peter Bowes in Los Angeles.


    Why can't Tribune do the same???.....at least it gives me an indicator when it's being broadcast, (so I can set a Manual recording......last weeks edition was moved...so the Manual recording was duff :( ), even if it's not specifically listed as a separate programme.

    I'll also include this as another example of poor guide data from Tribune.....

    SPORT: Up All Night
    Channel: BBC Radio Five Live 855
    Date: Wednesday 29th September 2004
    Time: 01:00 to 05:00 (starting in 3 days)
    Duration: 4 hours.
    Stories from around the world. Including at 2.35 The Cash Peters USA TV Slot; 3.05 Russian Round-Up.


    Again, the Tribune listings don't list this info :( .....Cash Peters is always singing TiVo's praises, (albeit the US version), .....set a Manual Recording for that guy. ;) \0/

    Channel Name: BBC1
    Channel Number: 1
    Programme Name: Match of the Day
    Time/Date Of Airing: Sat 22.30 & Sunday AM
    Problem: Repeats not being marked as such. A Season pass for MoTD is recording both episodes. This is exactly the same problem that The Premiership had (and which I reported twice with it not being resolved). Again, either mark the repeated Sunday morning episode as a repeat, or put it on another season pass. I am getting fed up with having to go into the 'To Do' list and delete the extra one. In fact I forgot to do it last night and so this morning the F1 GP was not recorded as TiVO was too busy recording the repeat of MoTD.

    I'm not asking for a miracle here, just a way to get this silly and tedious problem resolved.

    This was discussed at great length last season.

    Tribune are right as 'Match of the Day' and 'The Premiership' are different versions in the repeat.

    Perhaps you should complain to the broadcasters and ask them to change the title?

    Channel Name: ABC1
    Channel Num: 15
    Programme: (All programmes)

    All showings of all programmes on this channel seem to have the OAD set for every episode to be the same as the first episode. This makes getting a SP to work for anything on this channel very hard, as each programme is shown 2 or 3 times per day. A first-run-only SP clearly won't work, and getting the SP to record repeats as well then that leaves 2 episodes of each every weekday needing to be manually deleted.

    Theres me hoping they were all different episodes if its the same programme repeated all day I hope they can stop repeats from recording otherwise I am going to be removing many duplicates from the To Do list.

    I've just had to remove about 30 duplicates of Sports Night from my ToDo list (2 per day x 5 days per week + Saturday repeats). There is no episode title, description or number for these.

    :(

    Lets hope this gets fixed asap...

    Mike, Can you tell me how you know they are repeats? Is there a web site with the listings that confirm this? Cheers.

    To be honest, I'm guessing. I figured that they wouldn't show three new episodes per day and then another two back-to-back on saturday. Taking Sports Night as an example, that'd be 17 new episodes per week (and there's only 23 in a series).

    I conceed that the Saturday episodes could be "new" ones though, as that'd make only 7 per week, meaning 3+ weeks to get through a series.

    'abc1' don't seem to have released any episode detail.

    Even the Freeview EPG only has generic info.

    I agree that they are not repeats. But that does not solve the problem with them being messed up for the end user.

    I do not pay the broadcasters £10 a month for the data, I pay TiVO, and if given a choice between better usability or absolute accuracy I know what I would choose.

    Please tell me who in their right mind would want both episodes recording?
    As it stands the season pass for MoTD is flawed.

    Accuracy is good, but not in exchange for usablilty!

    Freeview ABC1 Channel 15

    50% of the programmes are listed incorrectly can someone confirm they are having the same problem?

    The information was gathered in a hurry reviewing the first 5 mins or so of the program as ABC1 seem to play intros to other programs before starting the actual program please check. Note shows are not always repeats throughout the day.

    What TiVo Thought Was On, Time, What Was Actually On
    The Sinbad Show 0600 Unhappily Ever After
    Soul Man 0630 Nurses
    Thunder Alley 0655 Sinbad
    Brotherly Love 0720 Correct
    8 Simple Rules 0745 Correct
    Home Improvement 0810 Correct
    Daddio 0835 Ellen
    Nurses 1010 Correct (same as 0630)
    Empty Nest 1010 Moonlighting
    Unhappily Ever After 1100 Moonlighting (cont)
    Home Improvement 1125 Unhappily Ever After
    Daddio 1150 (box failed to changed channel - went to five instead)
    8 Simple Rules 1215 Correct (different episode)
    Home Improvement 1620 Correct (different episode)
    8 Simple Rules 1645 Correct (same as 12:15)
    Sports Night 1735 Correct

    If anyone knows for sure what should be showing and what is a repeat of what could they post so I can manually fix my To Do list?

    TIA

    Yep, got the same problem with ABC1 here. The morning scheduling is bad - I missed the first Moonlighting episode yesterday, and Home Improvements was not shown at the correct time either :(

    ABC1 don't seem to have released any reliable schedules for publishers - and have changed the only list they did release.

    Perhaps last minutes rights problems?

    When recording a problem, please provide all the following information:

    - Postcode

    - Service Provider (aerial, Sky Digital, etc.)
    Sky

    - Programme Name
    What Not To Wear

    - Time/Date of airing

    - Problem encountered
    This is the start of a new series but wasn't picked up by my Season Pass. The text description for the programme on 29 Sept says 'new series'.

    Note that there are repeats on UK Style (and +1) being broadcast too so I had set a first run only SP.

    fwiw, just in case you have a clash... BBC1 Scotland is broadcasting this at 7pm on a Monday (or TiVo thinks it is... haven't checked the recording yet).

    my new BBC1 - way up north SP is doing OK.

    late agreement with toothy... wife (honest) watched WNTW last night, Sky Digital ch 941
