    Doing my usual Saturday stint of checking everything is going to record during the week and I have a major problem today - no upcoming episodes are listed for any of my series links!!

    Will try a reboot as the last download is shown as successful and the EPG guide seems to be complete up to next Monday week.

    This is a known issue, currently being looked at by Virgin Media.

    With it being a fault that doesn't affect everyone, it might take some time to track down and fix :)

    are we sure it isn't everybody? couldn't it be that it hasn't been noticed by others yet? - there's so much moaning about other things over at the VM forums that they might have been too busy to notice :)

    have you, or anybody else, had a post 10am dialup and still have all your SP's?

    My assumption in Carl's statement is that he isn't affected. It would seem reasonable that it does not affect all as there are too few comments on fora about this situation.

    I suspect a lot of people are just out enjoying the sun! I've not seen anyone report they were unaffected yet.

    It may be worth forcing another connection to see if that fixes it now.

    Are you sure you are not affected Carl?

    Humour me and go into:-
    Home page,
    my shows & recordings,
    manual recordings,
    browse by time, and either
    favourite channels or all channels.

    Select any show that has a regular slot and view upcoming episodes.

    Is anything listed in upcoming episodes?

    just tried - figured that nothing worse could happen right? :)

    pretty much the same as Fri, Thu and, iirc, Wed 15 elephants worth of downloading and then no %count on loading but it was just minutes ago so not much'll have indexed much. patiently waiting an hour to check again.

    Oz, can we assume that your SL's are OK?

    Good point, still no confirmation that any one is unaffected. Also done as per SJP and no download % count. Went through too quick to be getting any meaningful amount of data.

    No you can't - I'm not in a position to check if it is fixed but it will not harm forcing a call if the data was messed up earlier.

    Firstly an apology. I actually meant to post my comment in this thread; but then would have had to delete it as it does say "no discussion" :eek:

    However....

    Yes. I have checked a half-dozen or so shows that are due to start at 8pm tonight and all have upcoming episodes listed.

    I suspect Carl hasn't had a daily call processed today (since around 9am)

    it says no discussion but i'll bet that there's plenty folks subscribed to it so it doesn't seem such a bad place to discuss what is potentially the biggest VM screw up to date.

    Mine (call) was about 15:15 and nothing recorded since and upcoming shows nothing.

    Tried a reboot, recall and resetup on series link.
    This sucks :mad:

    I'vebeen a long time away from this forum (was a Series 1 owner for a good while)

    nice to be back - but had TIVO installed - and this Series Link issue didn't sit well with the wife - new toy -not working etc

    but glad to hear its a glitch rather than a normal thing !!
