    After interrogation ;) my daughter now tells me...

    The programme is being shown in 'chunks' so the description not changing from day to day would seem to be correct. Each day, the next chunk is shown. Each chunk is repeated twice each day. A tivo SP should pick up one showing each day to catch the whole programme. So it's not as bad as previously thought. Each chunk is only 30 mins so getting both every day isn't too bad (they get deleted fairly quickly).

    - These progs are not being inserted in the todo list with season pass because of the 28 day rule.

    World Rally is back - progs on Sat 18th, Thu 23 are listed as 'World Rally' but Sat 25th (or might be Fri 24th, forgot to make a proper note :rolleyes: - sorry ) is listed as 'World Rally Championship'. Captured by a World Rally title WL, but will need 2 SPs.

    It has just been reported in another thread (SP & last nights ER) that the OADs for 'Friends' are those for RTE1 - and not E4.

    RTE1 is officially available in the UK and is listed by the ITC for viewing figures etc. - but can only be received in Northern Ireland (cable and aerial).

    So the issue is now - how can this be resolved so it all works for the whole of the UK - not just NI and not the rest of the UK and not NI?

    Checking the schedules for RTE - does confirm the OADs are those for RTE1.

    Please continue any discussion about this OAD problem in etiher

    SP & last nights ER or

    Friends - is it safe yet?

    But NOT is this errors thread

    Programme : "Alistair McGowan's Big Impression"

    TiVo thought it started @ 21:30, actually started (and reported correctly in Sky EPG) @ 21:40.

    But this cloud had a silver lining... Instead of missing the last 10 minutes, TiVo thought it was a 45 minute programme - it was actually only 30 minutes long. All's well that ends well!

    Pet Rescue: Channel 4 @ 3.15 pm daily

    The description for Pet Rescue is '...The RSPCA rescues animals...'. The RSPCA are only one rescue organisation of many featured in this programme. The description should either state 'Animal rescue organisations...' or should name the rescue organisations featured on that specific day: e.g. Blue Cross, Battersea Dogs Home, NCDL, RSPCA, etc etc etc.

    p.s. yes I do work for an animal rescue that has been featured in the programme but never makes the Tivo credits :)

    This program has no descriptive text on the TiVo listings, and has the classification "Home and Garden". Actually it is a childrens program, nothing to do with gardens at all...

    From Radio Times (part of GMTV description)

    ITV (London) Saturdays
    07.05 Diggin'it. Magazine with animations, games and guests, including Stanley, House of Mouse, Recess, Kim Possible and That's So Raven.

    or on

    07:05 Diggin` It
    Magazine series for children presented by Liam, Abbie and IT. Pop Idol finalist Zoe Birkett is in the studio, plus there`s the further adventures of Kim Possible and That`s So Raven, as well as Stanley, House of Mouse and Recess.

    The above details were for Saturday 11th of Jan, the program is broadcast every week.

    Paramount on Sky Digital been broadcasting Drop The Dead Donkey (Mon-Thu, 11:30pm) since the new year, yet my Tivo is listing it as an hour of Frank Skinner from 11-12 :-( The last DTDD I got was back in December.

    The next "scheduled" showing is being pushed further and further back (now it's saying Wednesday 15th), but no doubt that will get overwritten again...

    The guide data for Spooks wasn't right for the first episode, but on my tivo the others (from this Wed onwards I think) look to have been corrected and the 28-day rule should work from now on. Check your "View upcoming" on your Spooks SP and see if they are all scheduled to be recorded.

    Just set up some recordings and noticed a few errors (yet again!) Might be worth checking your SPs

    Sex and the City: 25th Jan, Ch4 - thinks the programme has been shown before, but I think it's a new episode to Ch 4.
    Thomas the Tank Engine, ITV1 - all new episodes, but Tivo have mislabeled a couple, so Tivo thinks they're repeats
    Without Prejudice, Ch4 - No data
    Bremner Bird & Fortune, Ch4 - tivo thinks the repeated showing is also a new episode.

    but cd:uk is working this week :) But no proper description on The Tube :(

    Confirmed - my world rally SP from last year found:
    • Saturday 18 Jan 2003 - "World Rally", "Monte Carlo Shakedown" (A preview program)
    • Thursday 23 Jan 2003 - "World Rally", "Monte Carlo - Shakedown" (Actual coverage)
    But did not pickup:
    • Friday 24th Jan 2003 - "World Rally Championship", "2003 Monte Carlo" (Actual coverage)
    My Post Code: RG10
    Channel: Analogue Terrestrial C4

    I can't remember what the "Offical" series name is, "World Rally" or "World Rally Championship".

    Apologies for the Rally mixup. We won't consolidate titles for these showings, as many have already set up recordings. Moving forward we will use last year's title "World Rally Championships" to avoid the confusion of having more than one programme title.

    Hope this helps,

    My Rally SP is set as "World Rally", so does that mean I need to delete it, and add "World Rally Championships" SP, or have both?

    I think it means that after 24th Jan there won't be any more episodes of the "World Rally" Season Pass. You can keep it if you like but you might as well delete it.

    Jim, the "World Rally Championship" itself has orphans :(

    first one:
    "2003 Monte Carlo"
    Fri 24th Jan

    second one:
    Lots of broadcasts on EURGB, starting with:
    Thu 23rd Jan

    Programme Name: BBC News at 10.
    Time/Date of Airing: 10 o'clock

    I had a season pass to record the BBC 1 terrestrial news at 10, if nothing else is recording. Recently this season pass has stopped recording or has very few episodes in upcoming episodes.

    Selecting Jan 16th 10 o'clock news (not being recorded as not in original season pass) reveals this one is part of another season pass called 10 o'clock news, which also includes some news at 4am and 5am.

    Something has gone wrong with programme/series ID's.
