    Thanks Kevin - I fell victim to the BBC2 late running, so missed the end too and having skipped the titles thought it was a normal full-length programme!

    I reckon it was almost 5 minutes into the 10 minutes before the guy with the baby rocker even entered the Den!!

    Problem - Wrong episode description/Season pass is not picking up properly

    It appears that some episodes have been given the episode description for the first episode incorrectly. I cannot tell which are repeats and which are new episodes. I'm lost. Also on Saturday 21 Jan ITV1 shows a repeat and then ITV2 shows the next episode but these overlap by 5 mins so conflict. Can someone with TiVOWeb etc please check this.

    Stephen Poliakoff Season

    The two Stephen Poliakoff dramas so far in the listings for BBC4's season of his work don't have him named as director, or indeed anywhere in the blurb, so neither a Director nor Keyword wishlist for "Poliakoff" picks them up.

    The full season as remains to be aired is:

    SHE'S BEEN AWAY (1989) Sunday 22 January 10pm-11.45pm

    PERFECT STRANGERS (2001)
    Part 1: Sunday 29 January 10pm-11.30pm
    Part 2: Sunday 5 February 10pm-11pm TBC
    Part 3: Sunday 5 February 11pm-12.30am TBC

    CENTURY (1993) Sunday 12 February 10pm-11.55pm TBC

    SHOOTING THE PAST (1999) Sunday 19 February 9pm-11.50pm TBC

    CLOSE MY EYES (1991) Sunday 26 February 10.45pm-12.25am TBC

    STRONGER THAN THE SUN Sunday 5 March TBC

    BLOODY KIDS (1980) Sunday 12 March TBC

    I was just amusing (and amazing ;)) myself by checking my Tivo over the internet when I found the following problem:

    Callsign: LIVING
    Programme Name: Charmed
    Date/Time: Thurs Jan 26, 9pm
    Problem: FROSP won't pick it up as OAD is wrong (Thu 21st Oct 1999)
    Also, the cast list is out of date but that's a problem with other shows too :)

    ditto the above Charmed report... The episode to be broadcast on Feb 9th also seems to be affected.

    Wasn't sure where to post this... Feel free to move, and/or copy to the best place, if it needs to be! (It's on tonight btw!)

    Just to let anyone who records Celebrity Big Brother know (if they don't already), that the double eviction show is on as it has been, from 9pm to 10pm - but then there's another half hour, from 11:05pm to 11:35pm! (so add that 2nd show to your TiVo!)

    [Listing from Channel4.com]

    21:00 Celebrity Big Brother
    22:00 Desperate Housewives
    23:05 Celebrity Big Brother
    23:35 Rock School

    More Celebrity Big Brother alterations.

    Tonight's Channel 4 listings as now as follows:-

    20:00 Everybody Loves Raymond
    20:30 Celebrity Big Brother: The Live Final
    21:30 My Name Is Earl
    22:00 Celebrity Big Brother: The Live Final
    23:05 The Friday Night Project

    Quite why Channel 4 didn't issue this schedule last week is anybody's guess. :rolleyes:

    BBC2 Fridays 1900 "Money Programme" - 2 episodes with SP, next is standalone.

    20 Jan on Google: SP works, title is MP
    27 Jan on female millionaires: SP works, title is MP
    3 Feb on computer dating: title is "the Love Bloom", no SP, wishlists won't work.

    Doing so well with the first two!

    Programme Name: Horizon

    Problem: The season pass I have for Horizon on BBC2 has been renamed "Moscow Theatre Siege". This is probably the usual problem of calling the programme by name of the episode - v. common for Horizon on the secondary channels, but wrong.

    OAD is listed as various dates in 2002, and it's blatently wrong..

    I agree also the cast listing is way out of date as well which is also irritating :mad:

    Is there anyway of properly identifying the new series so it is properly sorted by when 'first showing only' is requested?

    Indeed. The inability to fix the cast list is simply downright laziness on the part of the EPG writers. This week's new episode is showing as a 2002 launch date, making a FROSP even more useless.

    The fact that:

    1) It's on a major terrestrial channel
    2) It's a US series (for which the epg is historically richer and more accurate)
    3) Popular programme (subjective opinion, of course)

    all means some effort should be given to having a proper tidy up.

    I've given up and just set a repeating manual recording (rather like I had to ensure getting The Money Programme).

    SP not picking up due to 28-day rule. I think this has been posted previously but has obviously not yet been fixed. Next week's episode will go the same way, too, it seems.

    "Wake up to money" on BBCRadio5 via Sky Digital is incorrectly listed as being one weekly episode broadcast Monday and repeated every day from Tuesday to Friday.

    It is, of course, a new programme daily.

    And the second two episodes have a different series id from the first.
