    I would check your daily calls are up-to-date - my TiVo lists the 'Phil Silvers' version of events!

    Problem: Incorrect (?) description

    Previously the live coverage of each Grand Prix itself had the word live in the description, e.g. British Grand Prix live, so a Wishlist could catch just the race itself. For both the Chinese and Japanese GPs the word "live" was missing. Can it return for the Brazilian Grand Prix which i think is on 24th October?

    Well 05:02 Sun 10th seems pretty up to date by me and it's still showing it incorrectly! (What time did yours update then?)

    I'll check it again tomorrow morning to see if it corrected itself.

    That was too early for today's update - so you should see it in the next one.

    I've peaked too soon! :)

    (Update - having forced a daily call and it has now updated it as per Ozsat's post along with the new BBC2 series - "Who do you think you are" - the highlighted programme of this week's schedule. (BBC2 9pm Tue).

    Which bizarrely enough has an identical name to a 'make-over' programme on UKStyle. )

    Isn't that because it's on BBC2? (as per my post above yours.)

    :D

    (Ok so it wasn't shown on BBC2 either until the forced call on Sunday ;) )

    Problem: well not exactly a schedule problem....

    .. but for those of you using Season passes and not got round to watching last night's episode Sky overran by 30 mins so unless you have a lot of endpad I suggest you make sure you grab one of the repeats during the week!

    Otherwise you will miss 50% of it.

    Problem: New series not being picked up

    A new series of HIGNFY starts this Friday but last year's SP isn't picking it up - looks like it has a different Series number to others. I can only assume this is why it hasn't?

    This happens all the time. Be very careful what you do here, as if you set up a new season pass, Tribune often subsequently revise the programme id so that it shows up under the old season pass. The only way to reliably tell if it is going to record is to check the To Do List after your last daily call before the programme comes on

    I have lost lots of programmes through this sort of error: Wife Swap and Survivor come to mind immediately

    BBC2 HIGNFY SP working fine here.

    And the BBC 1 and BBC2 series have the same ID.

    I think this is a case of Tribune fixing a split SP - maybe last series BBC 1 was on a different ID. I have a vague recollection that there was a series where the BBC 1 and BBC 2 showings were edited differently with BBC 2 extended, so they became two series in TiVos eyes.

    Yes you are right there Sanderton. The BBC2 Sat night repeat was supposedly more 'risqué' and of slightly longer duration.

    So create a new SP and leave the old one in the list seems to be the recommendation!

    (More SPs than I can shake a stick at - just hit 100 again having had a clear out recently)

    Yes they were two series. The BBC called them by different names too, and the content was different - so in this case it was correct to have two separate SPs.
    The 40-min? version was called "Have I Got a Little Bit More News for You".

    True, but that is a little bit unfair given the history of this series! Some background: The guide data for Motors TV is generally patchy. This isn't Tribune's fault - it was often supplied too late if at all.

    Many series don't have "episodic" data - so TiVo can't tell with series like Inside Grand Prix which episode is which. The 28-day no-rerecord rule, which normally filters duplicates, can't operate. So you'd get all the showings of the Japanese episode (and there were quite a lot!). Again, this is Motor TV's fault for not supplying good enough data.

    Last week, for the first time ever, this series had episodic data! A major improvement, no need to manually go through and delete all the duplicates. This is so useful I can live with the odd typo :)

    Time/Date Of Airing: Mondays 9:00pm

    Problem: Unable to set SP

    Unable to set SP for these series of medical documentaries, presumably because of the title format.

    If it was The Body Of...... then maybe a SP would work. Other programmes in the series are about JFK and Adolf Hitler.

    Apologies to Tribune; they had it right:

    Series 1: The mini series
    Series 2: The mini series omnibus
    Series 3: The new regualr series

    My Season Pass for The Archers has started recording the daily repeats as well as the first airing of each episode. It used to know which episodes were repeats of which and only record the repeat if I'd recorded something else when the original aired.
