    Platform: Sky Digital
    Channel: ITV1CEN
    Programme: "Central Tonight"
    Date/Time: Every Thursday 1800-1830
    Problem: Tribune/Tivo is showing and incorrect listing for this programme on Thursdays. Mon, Tue, Wed and Fri are OK.....problem is just on Thursdays, when the listing incorrectly says "Central News and Weather". This is messing up my season pass. Any chance of a correction? Don't know if it extends to Freeview guide as well. Cheers.

    I'm in the doghouse here, having failed 3 times now to record "Shaun the Sheep". It appears in the EPG OK and TiVo records the specified channel and times. But it's always other C Beebies stuff, never the woolly hero himself. Any ideas?

    Not Far...
    Callsign : BBC One (101) and BBC Three (115)
    Provider : Sky Digital
    Programme Name : Formula 1
    Date/Time: Saturday and Sunday Various
    Nature of Problem: BBC One series name Changed to "Formula 1" But BBC Three Highlights Program series Still Using ITV Title of "Formula One Racing"

    The Qualifying and Race Programs on BBC One for the Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend used the correct official BBC One program name of "Formula 1" but the Tivo program description for the Highlights program (currently shown in my "To Do" list due to a Keyword Wishlist for either "Formula One" "Formula 1" or "F1") on BBC Three at 7pm tonight still shows as the old ITV series name of Formula One Racing. Oddly if I currently (Sunday 5th April 4.41pm) do a Pick Programmes To Record and Search By Title for the word "Formula" Tivo only currently shows me a series name of "Formula 1" but if I ask to "View Upcoming Episodes" it shows me "The Malaysian Grand Prix" and selecting this episode shows it belongs to the series "Formula One Racing". So it seems that Tribune has its database for these programs well and truly scrambled between the old ITV series title and the new BBC one.

    I continue to maintain that it would be best for there to be separate series names for at least "Formula 1 Qualifying", "Formula 1 Race" and "Formula 1 Highlights" and ideally the live Qualifying and live Race programs should also be able to be distinguished from any non live Qualifying and Race programs (only usually applies when the race is held in the middle of the night and is then repeated later on Sunday). Failing that I will be seeing if Mike's Global Blocklist app can be used to block the recording of any program containing the word Qualifying and Highlights in the episode description so that only the Race program is recorded.

    Either way Tribune should clearly call the program correctly by the BBC series name of "Formula 1" instead of the old ITV name of "Formula One Racing" on both BBC One and BBC Three.

    However ideally I would like to just have an SP for Formula 1: Race on BBC One and then not record the Qualifying or Highlights programs at all (this would be easy if they were part of different series on the Tivo). Fortunately the Highlights program should still be easy to avoid recording due to appearing on BBC Three and hence not being covered by the BBC One SP.

    Obviously too late for any changes, but just to let people know (if they haven't found out yet) None of the scheduled programs on BBC2 between 13:30 to 22:30 are there on TiVo!
    The show "Castle in the Country" which was on at 13:00 today, is hogging the schedules for 9 and a half hours until Newsnight at 22:30. :rolleyes:

    This is not marked properly as a series, so if you series link it you get all the repeats as well - and there are *lot* of them, so it stomps all over your todo list.

    Freeview 14 & Freesat 124
    Thursday 7 May 9.00 p.m.
    ER 18/22

    Some times, it seems, belt and braces still aren't enough. Both TiVo on Freeview and Foxsat PVR on Freesat completely missed this episode, the first part of a double bill in the closing laps of this venerable and remarkable prog.

    I know it was remiss of me not to at least check TiVo's To Do list beforehand but there are only so many things one can do in a day :eek:. I suppose it'll turn up again eventually among the multiple repeats but by then I'm afraid I shall have lost interest anyway :rolleyes:

    New episodes do not appear to be flagged as such, so my "first run only" SP is not picking them up.

    Hiya
    Got a message on my Tivo on the 13th (May) that A Lineup change had occured.
    That FiverDT had moved from channel 36 to channel 30 and FiveUSA had moved from 35 to 31. Its altered itself, only problem is Both channels are still at 35 and 36 and with Tivo I cant reasign them to non existant channels :(

    You set-top-box has not been updated - so you'll need to find the menu option to do it.

    btw: there is another line-up change on Freeview on 20th May.
