    ITV2 show 3 back to back episodes of Judge Judy weekdaily

    They start at 8:30 and then repeated at 11:00 and then repeated again at 5:30

    Tivo records all 9 episodes everyday - it should obviously record only 3

    Doh, now got listings for the following weekend and the Monaco races and we've got *another* new series ID for GP2, this time "GP2 Motor Racing".

    27/05 Eurosport about 23:45 Monaco Race 1
    28/05 Eurosport 7:30 Monaco Race 1 repeat
    28/05 Eurosport 2 about 20:40 Monaco Race 2

    Please, please can this be raised as a more general issue as fixing it every week is not a sustainable way of doing things. I assume these get slotted into series IDs by some matching process and this is probably where the attention is needed.

    It was scheduled for 10pm - but the live programme overran.

    They kept updating the schedule as 10pm arrived to 10.10pm, then 10.20pm. So all programmes are running 20-25 minutes late on BBC3 and BBCHD.

    Any chance of some decent Comedy Central data, with episode titles rather than generic info? I've deleted the same episode of South Park off my TiVo about 8 times this week and counting...

    Strange - I'm sure I had previously been getting episode names. Thanks for letting me know.

    EPG shows as 1966 Star Trek original series with no episode data. Actually showing Deep Space 9.

    (Yah. A bit late.. but if it's happened once it can happen again).

    I got home last night, went to watch Doctor Who in HD, via my season pass, sorry I mean series link, and nothing. Went to "Hiccups", which said it wasn't recorded because it wasn't listed, and when I checked that slot in the guide was indeed blank!

    Not to worry I thought, I can always watch in via catchup... Wrong! Three times after getting about 10 minutes in, I got a "Catchup not available" message. Grrr!

    I hope this is an isolated incident. I don't want to have to start dual recording important shows, in case the VirginTIVO doesn't record them.

    My TiVo decided that Match of the Day last night started at 23:25, rather than 22:25, which was NOT a most pleasant surprise for me this morning. Still, it wasn't like it was an important or exciting one, eh? :mad:
