    (noticing your post count of "1") a C4 only SP for No Angels wouldn't pick up the E4 episodes as an SP is channel specific, you'd need a seperate SP for the E4 episodes.

    Apologies if I've got the wrong end of your stick

    I called yesterday and the chap said that they were well aware of the problem.

    Oh, I didn't mention that bit :)

    LOL :p

    There was an error with the ER amendments and all should now be corrected - although you'll have to wait untl Thursday's (2nd Mar) download.

    The correct id is SH115131

    :eek: Just want to check I understand. I have to wait until after Thursday's download and then deleted the new SPs I've just created and recreate the SPs I've just deleted? :confused:

    Also, is there any way that, without TivoWeb, I can see the OAD, IDs, etc. ?

    Basically, yes. I haven't bothered re-doing the SP as I was hoping it might not be necessary.

    Yes. Highlight a programme and press Select, then press Enter. Voila :)

    Problem: Broken season pass. This is the opening programme, a preview to the new season. My Tivo has a thumbs up for against the programme, but my old season pass from last year no longer picks it up.

    However the old season pass from 2002, 2003 and 2004 does pick it up(*). They have merely corrected the mistake! I've now deleted my 2005 SP which I always considered 'rogue' so I'd rather they didn't change anything :)

    Whilst it is nice to have fully working hibernating SPs so that you can catch programmes that return unexpectedly that you would have otherwise missed, this is just a bonus. Things like sporting seasons and Big Brother are not a surprise to anyone so it really isn't a hassle to recreate SPs at the right time of year. They are only intended to last a Season (even though they often work spanning across seasons).

    *The 2005 SP which is now dormant was SH721138. This 2006 one is SH497944 which is much older (lower number). I have a saved SP backup file from August 2003 with SH497944 in it!

    I reported this to the call centre on the phone last Saturday, so fingers crossed that it will be fixed in the next day or so. I also reported the year-long Newsnight problem by voice for the first time too.

    Thanks - luckily I didn't delete the old season pass just in case is was fixed. The "belts and braces" approach as I think ER racks higher than my wellbeing in my wife eyes :rolleyes:

    Heads up for GP fans really.

    Formula One Qualifying is on ITV3 - at 5.30am on Friday 17th March. Original listings may have this as ITV2.

    Check your SPs.

    BBC2 Apprentice Wed 2100 repeated Tues 1900

    Tivo's picked up the original and repeat, so ep2 this week is listed to be re-recorded next Tuesday. Think it's the usual reason: the "(R)" on the end of the description has fooled the masterbrain at HQ. Still, this is failsafe, 2x the prog instead of 0x.

    BBC2 Money Programme is back on Fri 1900 but isn't back if you believed your Tivo. No SPs, terse one-liner description, no hope for a Wishlist (I compared the terse desc for the next few weeks, crystal ball needed). Is it timely to abandon all hope here?

    I guess so. I set up a repeating record by time quite a while back. It's a pain having to delete programmes that sometimes use that slot but better than missing them altogether.

    The problem with the Money Programme is that BBC Scheduling issue a title and synopsis to everyone - and there is no reference in these listings to indicate it is a part of the Money Programme series.

    The separate listings which the BBC directly upload to Sky EPG does refer to 'The Money Programme'.

    Thanks for that. Onscreen graphics etc do make it obvious it's a "season" of the MP. Guess this means it need a human to decide if 1900 Fridays + yesterday 2200 + random overnight repeats are MP. Your licence fee money at work - the more you pay, the less they offer. I'd be willing to email any "lost" MP eps but can't easily make phone calls to Tivo HQ.

    It's not.

    It's still got US air dates as the OAD

    Next/ Current Ep is I Do OAD 01 Dec 2005

    Following that is All About Chrismas Eve OAD 08 Dec 2005

    Next is If Not Now OAD 05 Jan 2006

    Is there any chance they might actually get this fixed correctly???? Because there are so many ER's on the c4/e4/m4 family it's kinda really important it's right...

    My SP for the E4 showings is working fine. I don't think it's a FROSP but then there's no other season being shown on E4 at the moment anyway so that doesn't matter :)
