    Are you sure? Mine has never worked properly, so I have it set to Keep Only One.

    Yes. It definitely used to manage to record each episode only once.

    Problem: Seaon pass missed last episode in series

    DigiGuide had Angel as 00:25 - 01:10. TiVo had 23:35 - 00:25 so I got Drastic Plastic instead.:mad:

    Programme name: The New Statesman

    Time/Date Of Airing: Mon 18 Oct 9:30pm

    Problem: Wrong programme title

    TiVo has this listed as New Statesman, which breaks an old SP I have.

    The proper title is The New Statesman.

    DigiGuide has the correct title. :up:

    My season pass for Eastenders is not going to record next weeks as it is a different season pass. Also a wishlist of "eastenders" fails to spot it as well. Programme guide data for next week only downloaded this morning.

    Probably not indexed yet - Eastenders looks OK here.

    Eastenders is now correct, Sanderton was right, leave for an hour or two and it re-indexed OK.

    Still no nearer in getting a working SP for Five Live Formula One. :(
    Tonight's broadcast of 5LF1 is not in my TDL :( so I've had to set a manual recording.

    It's in the BBC website listings and several paper mag listings, so why is this SP always broken? :confused: :( :(

    After being called "New Little Britain" this week, the series has now reverted back to "Little Britain" for next week.

    I think the BBC promoted the 'New' title to highlight the programme - the BBC listings have been changed around.

    It's a good job that our subscriptions are funding a crack team of people to enter and edit listings, rather then a couple of monkeys with a copy of TV Quick and a OCR-supported scanner.

    Oh.

    Channel Name: BBC4

    Channel Number: 127

    Programme Name: Tanner 88

    Date/Time: Saturday 23rd October at 11pm, then Sunday 24th October - Thursday 28th October at 11pm and 11:35pm.

    Problem: This is a series, and each showing is a separate episode, but the guide thinks it's one programme that's being repeated. Consequently I can't set a season pass.

    At least if they did use a paper listings mag and a scanner....they would get the SP of Five Live Formula One correct, as it's listed every week in every mag I've seen.

    Tribune....you suck. :rolleyes: :thumbsdown:

    Indeed....but Five Live Formula One is always on every week during the F1 season......it's a discussion/chat show.

    According to Tribune...there are no upcoming episodes.
    [​IMG]

    But look over here at a paper listings mag....it's on next week.

    [​IMG]

    But it doesn't exist according to Tribune. :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    And finally, to shut-up all the Tribune fanboys...here's the guide data from DigiGuide. :up:

    Date: Friday 29th October 2004
    Time: 21:30 to 22:00 (starting in 6 days)
    Duration: 30 minutes.

    If you've still got the TV guide or Digiguide to hand, would you mind telling me what programme is going to be on Channel 4 at 9.10 this evening? There's a 2hr 15 min gap in the schedules. I even did a manual call this afternoon to check I had the up to date data

    It's bad enough to have gaps in the BBC 4 schedules, but to have missing data on the main 5 channels? Beggars belief.


    PS I do apologise if it's a film called "To Be Announced" ;)
