    Radio 1 (Freeview ch70) is still showing the old schedule - Peel, for instance, is still down as 10-midnight this wednesday but has been 11pm-1am for months.

    (postcode W12)

    Oh p**s flaps - all this talk of Hitchhikers and I forgot to set a manual recording (finishes in 1 minute!)

    Bah - will have to grab the repeat on Thur.

    Any idea when this is likely to be fixed?

    Any chance TIVO could sort out it's Radio 4 listing for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, currently on at 18:30 on Tuesdays and 23:00 on Thursdays? What the heck is Radio 9 anyway. That is what is in the TIVO schedule!

    Yes, I do use TIVO to record radio shows. I transfer them to cassette and play them in the car. It makes long journeys much more bearable.

    The first two episodes did show up in the guide (and I set a Season Pass). The first one only appeared a couple of days before it was broadcast. The second episode also worked OK, but tonight's episode was not recorded as it is no longer showing in the Radio 4 listings. Thursday night's repeat is also wrong! :mad:

    I've set TiVo to manually record the repeat.

    For reference:
    - Postcode: NR10 4TB
    - Platform: Freeview
    - BBC Radio 4
    - Channel 74
    - Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy
    - 18:30 06/10/2004
    - Not in guide.. Episodes 1 & 2 (21/09 & 28/09) were!

    The guide data is in a right old mess with this one, with the series doubly orphanned, ie there are three series listed, all of which are actually the same one.

    A single SP will not record all episodes.

    Edit: the Saturday one looks like it might be an omnibus of the two earlier in the week? Hard to tell!

    It still needn't be a separate SP.

    (edit: see comments below in a later post)

    Omnibuses should be separate IMHO.

    But in this case there is a third entry!

    It seems to have been fixed for next week (both days) but not for this
    Thursday's repeat. Manual-recording time again I guess :(

    I don't seem to have any guide data after today (Wed 6th) for R4 all the others are OK though! e.g. R2, R3 etc

    Is anyone else on Freeview suffering this problem?

    Don't worry - you're not missing out much. The guide data on Sky Digital is very inaccurate this week and looks like we're back to the "6 week old data" problem that Radio 4 & 7 suffered from a couple of months back.

    Obviously something's gone wrong at Tribune again.

    I think I've worked out what is happening with Battlestar G.

    Series 935481 contains only MV1464860000, which looks the TV-Movie shown on Sky Movies earlier this year. It's a standalone movie and shouldn't really be Season Passable any more than the TV Movie "Babylon 5: In the Beginning" would appear as an episode of B5.
    Series 925577 (type "Miniseries") contains EP6185710001 and EP6185710002.
    Series 935486 (type "Series") contains EP6976580001 episode title "33", (Mon 18th Oct 20:00) + repeats.

    (Those series IDs are from my own TiVo, I can't remember which set of numbers are unique to me and which are universal! You can see the IDs with TiVoweb in the URL or with backdoors in the normal TiVo interface on the "Enter" key details screen.)

    It may be that EP6185710001 and EP6185710002 are the same as MV1464860000 for people who don't subscribe to Sky Movies and who would otherwise never have seen the Miniseries, which is crucial to the plot. So you could set one-off recordings for those few, and a SP for the series proper starting on the 18th. According to http://www.hollywoodnorthreport.com/documents/bgepisodeguide.php , "33" is the first episode.



    On the subject of orphaned SPs, I forgot to mention that very rarely it is correct to have two different SPs. There is a series on the Spanish channel TVEi (835 in the Sky EPG) called "Panorama". It's different to the BBC series of the same name and has a separate SP.

    This Series is incorrectly listed as "This is my family" with a duration of 90 mins when it should be called "Who do you think you are?" for 60 mins.

    Thanks,

    Agggh have just spotted this post as I have discovered I don't have Episode 10 of Series 5 (The Stormy Present) but two copies of the previous episode as Tivo recorded this (incorrectly) and then didn't bother getting the proper one!

    Anyone still have West Wing Series 5 Ep 10 - The Stormy Present or know when it might be repeated? (Does E4 do a batch catch up every month ?? - I kow it has multiple repeats during the week but it's too late for this now :( )

    Programme Name: Inside Grand Prix
    Problem: Inaccurate programme description.

    Someone at Tribune doesn't know their F1 or their geography. :rolleyes:

    Of course DigiGuide has the correct programme details. :up:

    DOCUMENTARY: Inside Grand Prix

    Date: Saturday 9th October 2004
    Time: 23:00 to 23:30 (starting in 53 minutes)

    Inside Grand Prix is the perfect preview for the next Grand Prix on the schedule,
    and this episode features the Grand Prix of Japan at Suzuka.

    Problem: Incorrect afternoon listings

    Tivo listings are incorrect between 13:30 and 16:30

    (I noticed this as my Tivo was intending to record 2 episodes of Working Lunch)

    Tivo claims

    13:30 Working Lunch
    14:30 The Daily Politics
    16:30 Ready Steady Cook


    Digiguide, Radio Times & bbc.co.uk claims

    13:30 The Phil Silvers Show
    13:55 Film Doctor in Clover
    15:30 Animal Park
    16:30 Ready Steady Cook


    Both back in sync by 16:30
