    Done more digging on this and Radio Times seem to have got a much more accurate schedule (not 100% but certainly a good 90%!)

    People have been referring to it since 21 Sep 04 http://forum.digitalspy.co.uk/board/showthread.php?t=155461 so the data was available well in advance of launch.

    Guess I need to hope that the data will get better as my guide data is still very poor for this channel it is recording programmes that are not even on.

    TIA

    Programme: "Sex and the Settee"
    Channel: five 105
    Date: Thursday 30th September 2004
    Time: 00:10 to 00:35
    Duration: 25 minutes.
    Five smart, sexy women gather in our luxury apartment to discuss their personal lives and give us their take on sexual likes and dislikes, their dreams and disasters.

    Tivo has the wrong programme synopsis (something about a furniture factory) and the wrong programme length (20 mins).

    Too late to do anything about it; just thought I'd mention it.

    Mine *should* update in a bit then. Next call due 11:30pm :)

    Edited to add:

    Nope. Still showing same, wrong, time-slot. Very odd! How's that then? :confused:

    ABC1 listings should now be better - as long as your daily call was after around 7am today.

    - Postcode ME16
    - Service Provider Telewest
    - Channel Name British Eurosport
    - Channel Number 521
    - Programme Name Motorcycling
    - Time/Date of airing 1st October 10.45, 11.15, 12.00, 17.30
    2nd October 9.00, 9.30, 10.00, 11.15, 12.30, 14.00, 15.00, 17.30, 21.45
    - Problem encountered The programme guide has most of this schedule listed as To be announced or lists something else. Eurosport's uk website has up to date information. It would be good if this was corrected before the running of the Qatar motoGP on Saturday. I am not so worried about Friday's practice.

    I have pretty much the same issues. Last night checking TiVo's Eurosport listings for today, it had "To be announced" for most time slots, with a few programmes here and there. I'm in Telewest SW area.

    A magazine TV guide that the misses had, had reasonably accurate information, so this data must have been available for at least a week.

    No Hitchhikers Guide on R4 ?

    Postcode: E4
    Service: SkyDigital
    Channel 854 BBCR4FM
    Date: 5th October and 7th October
    Time: 18.30 - 19.00 and 23.00 - 23.30

    I've let 3 daily call updates run through, and I have guide data through the 20th, but the new series of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy seems to have disappeared from my guide data. On the Tuesday slot I have "The In Crowd", and on the Thursday slot I have "Radio 9 - Unknown".

    Are others missing guide data for this week's episodes or just me ?

    Needless to say Digiguide is correct!

    I suppose now that the BBC has sold its Technology & infrastructure to Siemens I bet it is bound to get worse!

    No-one seems to have mentioned that "The Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy" has disappeared from Tivo's BBC Radio 4 schedules. (904 on Telewest). As I'm going away for a while now, I have had to resort to a manual recording of something called "The In Crowd" as a way of recording it!!

    *cough*

    eeer try 2 posts or 4 posts up. OK it isn't Telewest but seems consistent across the platforms.

    (actually the Beeb website ***ked up and put all 6 episodes on line so I have all 6 in Real Media format if anyone is interested.)

    :)

    I have, for several months now, had a Manual Recording for 6.30pm - 7.00pm, Mon - Fri.
    There's usually something worth listening to in that slot, and it's easier (and more reliable) than setting up a dozen SP's.
