    Service Provider: Sky Digital
    Channel Number: 109 (and 110)
    Channel Name: UKTV Gold (and UKTV Gold (Plus 1 Hour))
    Callsign: UKGLD (and UKGLD1)
    Programme Name: Doctor Who/ Doctor Who Omnibus
    Time/Date Of Airing: 25 February 06:00 (and 07:00), 26 February 06:00 (and 07:00)
    Problem Encountered:

    These programmes are incorrectly using the title and ID for Doctor Who (Series Server ID: 82042), but they are compilations of (older) episodes and should be using the title and ID for Doctor Who Omnibus (Series Server ID: 99576). Using the wrong details breaks season passes, invalidates thumbs ratings and complicates searches.

    Showings before and after these are set up correctly, but I expect we'll see this problem again soon. As a general rule, showings on UKTV Gold (or UKTV Gold (Plus 1 Hour)) on weekend mornings are Doctor Who Omnibus, and should not be mixed up with individual episodes of Doctor Who. And yes, I know the broken information is coming from UKTV themselves- but surely TiVo/ Tribune can fix it?

    I hope the "Series Server ID"s are useful.

    Channel Name: C4 / E4 / E4+1 / More4/ More4 +1
    Programme: ER
    Date & Time of Airing: Various, 1St showing is usually Thurs @9pm (E4) 10PM (E4+1) Repeats at various times on different of the 4 variants, with the 1st analog terrestrial showing on C4 the following Monday @10pm

    Also Older ER is shown a heck of a lot and this makes it hard to spot new ones.


    ProblemS: Cast list is almost always wrong, It either is generic or semi right but adds in a few people who are no longer in the show or misses out reoccuring actors. EG Current Series lists Alex Kingston (Corday) as a regular name but she left in 2004. Older series are better but the actors are still frequently wrong (or major guest starts missed) , but I doubt that would be fixed now they've "vintage" episodes

    OAD is almost always wrong, next "real" new one (The Human Shield) is right (amazingly or someone has called it in., the following (Two Ships) has a OAD of 19th Sep 1994 (which is actually the OAD of the Pilot ER in the USA!) The following which should be I Do has an OAD of Sun 12th Feb 2006, well we're passed that date and it's not shown in the UK yet.

    Typically the OAD is the US OAD NOT the UK OAD which is next to useless for us in the UK.

    ER has been a continual pain, we've missed more than we've seen and to be honest it's just not good enough, it amazes me they can get it so different, theres just no consistency to how wrong they get it, if they were all US OAD's that would be fine but there not there a mismash.

    This is a long running issue, just to say I've reported it in. Also Ozsat asked me to, it's been mentioned before repeatedly on this thread.

    As I've said elsewhere *PLEASE* call tivo and register these errors if they don't get called in they won't get fixed, and if people who posted on here did call them in it would get reported back to Tivo who may do something, Just reporting in here does not count as it's not the official route..

    I'll now get off my soapbox...

    Programme: Blue Peter
    Date & Time of Airing: Everyday at 5:00pm
    Problem: Every program has the same generic description, and the OAD is wrong, resulting in none of them being recorded as the all get caught by the 28 day rule

    :(

    the kids are not happy :(

    The problem here is that CBBC produce the same info for all Blue Peter episodes on their channel. Only BBC1 screenings get different information from BBC scheduling.

    I had this set up on Season Pass for the last series (ID 22266) but it did not pick up on the new episodes that start tonight. Had to create a new Season Pass (ID 108761) for the new series.

    Thought Tribune would have used the same season pass ID for this?

    I can't speak season pass IDs but my SP from the first series picked up this second series, even before the pre-pub began to roll. Sunday's extra on Tim was missed but that's not a surprise (from TiVo POV). Did you use an SP for the BBC3 airings by any chance?

    My TiVo picked up the Tim episode and the new season. :)

    Not sure if it was because of a wishlist. Can check later.

    Would it not be possible to simply set the OAD as the broadcast date, as they are only shown once ?

    Further to Gavin's previous post about "ER", I have to report that my current Season Pass for the show on E4 - TMSID SH115131 - is now broken and is not showing any upcoming episodes. It looks like the show has now been given a new TMSID of SH899732.

    I will, of course, be reporting this tomorrow (0870 calls are cheaper on a weekend ;))

    Erm Sorry this seems to be my fault, they've Semi fixed the OAD problem and the wrong actors in the list problems, but they've wrecked the season pass's in the process.. :)

    Should the OAD be set to the US OAD or the UK OAD? At the moment they are using the US OAD which menas FRO won't catch any episodes

    UK. Also, it's not that a FRO isn't picking up any episodes (mine's not set to FRO anyway) but that my current SP is now to showing any upcoming episodes at all on any channel. Hoever, a search for ER in "Pick Progs to record" finds them.

    See? Completely broked :(

    Tried it with Tivo:
    :(
    BTW, you're not the Mark Bennet on QMR are you?

    Channel: More4

    Nick Broomfield's new doc on Eugene Terreblanche, His Big White Self (More4, 9pm Mon 27th Feb) is listed as his earlier film on the same subject, The Leader, The Driver And The Driver's Wife - although the listing gives 2006 as the date.

    Also a Nick Broomfield director Wishlist does not bring up all the films in the Broomfield season this week on More4.

    The IT Crowd on Saturday 25th recorded as 90 minutes rather than 30 minutes. The extra 60 mins was the end of Captain Corelli's Mandolin!

    Also, the More4 "ER" Season IDs have changes as well, so an old on this channel season pass will not pick up the daily episodes (which my wife was not happy about).

    Yes. I didn't make it clear enough in my post, but ALL episodes of "ER" had dissapeared from the 'upcoming episodes' list which, as we all know, shows every ep on any channel regardless of what channel the specific SP is for :)

    I know and I called it in again (I actually got the same woman who remembered my first call) , Sorry, Maybe I should have never tried getting this fixed..

    I also mentioned about the OAD being the US OAD too.

    When setting up SP (new episodes) TiVo picks up the new C4 episodes, but fails to detect the even newer episodes on E4 (28/02 @ 23:00) & E4+1 (01/03 @ 00:00).
