    Turns out that it couldn't connect for the daily call yesterday. That said, I would have thought that the listings would have downloaded earlier than now. :)

    Although not a Tivo error, todays double CSI has been posponed until next week. Those with a SP should be aware that this will most likely mess up their season pass. Manual recordings may be needed.

    Eurosport listing error .
    Cycling on Brit Eurosport has a pre and post discussion programme.
    eg today
    11am live cycling
    11:15 Live cycling - the actual race
    4:30pm Live cycling ( till 5:00pm)

    The list is OK, it's the program length that appears to be wrong.
    I have a season pass set & the second programme is not being recorded.
    The 11am programme was showing in to do as overlapping the second 11:15 programme & so the main race at 11:15 doesn't record.
    The programme is correct in the listing though & just shows 11:00 - 11:15. ??
    If you record each episode manually it is OK !
    This was happening every day. (workaround - have just set a manual recording for 6 hrs every day)

    postcode SW6
    provider homechoice
    channel Eurosport
    channel no 560

    As it should, seeing as each channel is responsible for it's own EPG and is fined if it is incorrect. I sometimes think that Tribune should adopt a similar policy ;) :D

    Re CSI... I was disappointed too, but this article explains it.

    WARNING: ABOVE ARTICLE CONTAINS PLOT-LINE SPOILER!!

    The double-length episode, directed by Quentin Tarantino, included a storyline involving a suicide bomber.

    Tried to record "Spooks" on UK Gold 2 +1 the other night - what I got was "Friday Night with Jonathan Ross" .... interesting substitution.

    Given Spooks fairly consistent storyline (terrorism...) do you think it may have been something to do with last week?

    Seems your calls are not up-to-date - my TiVos show the reschedule episode.

    Hmm. Could be - my Tivo seems to try get guide data at really odd times just now. Have scheduled a daily call and will report back.

    Well, my last call was today (Friday) @ 0419 but my Tivo is still showing the originally scheduled repeats too, not the re-scheduled eps. Maybe tomorrow?

    Time: Various, stars Sunday at 8pm

    Tivo seems to think that all episodes are correct. I don't actually know the full schedule, but at the moment only one episode will get recorded.

    It's now in the EPG but you may have to select it yourself as Tivo may think the 28-day rule applies; ie it thinks it recorded it last week :)

    But if Tribune go to the bother of updating the EPG, they'll surely update the hidden episode code as well.

    [Obligatory Guide Data Error to avoid being told off for discussion]
    Top Gear repeats on Tuesday are again being flagged as new episodes, which means Tivo misses the Tour de France. Please can these repeats be given the same codes as the Sunday episodes? Cheers?

    On my TiVo - CSI is set to record First Runs only and for Tuesday episode it is set to record.

    Please keep discussions of of this thread as I do not have time to read through everything trying to pick out genuine errors - and so some will (have) got missed!
