    What ozsat is saying is that your Tivo's channel line up is correct but your Freeview box's channel numbers are out of date and have not updated to the new ones.

    Some Freeview boxes update channel numbers automatically and on others you have to ask them to rescan for new channels. If your Freeview box has become confused for some reason you may need to do a Factory Reset on it and then rescan all channels and set all relevant user settings up again from scratch. Freeview boxes often become confused if they are left on for months and months without a power down and eventually their memory becomes corrupt in some way. So Freeview box power off, wait a minute, power on and scan for new channels will probably cure your current problem.

    Not exactly an error, but it would be nice to get the Formula One Practice sessions and French Open in the guide for Freeview Channels 301, 302 and 303.

    My rubbish Freeview DVR gets the guide data for these so why not TiVo!

    If your Freeview box gets guide data for the channels from Freeview but Tribune is not bothering to provide this data for Tivo then it surely is an error.

    However no doubt their excuse will be that with a Sky Digital box it is currently impossible to program the Tivo to change the Sky box to the required interactive stream and hence no way you can therefore set your Tivo to record from the Sky BBC Sport interactive streams................

    Because the BBC update the guide data on Freeview and Sky - but do not release the schedule to the press.

    A heads-up if anybody else is interested as you can still catch the omnibus on Friday :)

    Don't think it can be fixed but just in case anyone's doing any GOLDE recording this weekend.

    The GOLDE schedules for today and tomorrow are all over the place and don't agree with my TV listings magazine (which agrees with the SKY EPG and the official UK G.O.L.D website)

    All appears correct again from Monday.

    (As an aside why does Tivo list it as GOLDE?)

    This afternoon - TiVo agrees with Sky EPG - but it is not correct.

    I don't see this

    The last 2 weeks Tivo (with Sky) has had BBC1's Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow start 5 minutes before the previous programme (Casualty) ends, meaning I've had to set Comedy Roadshow as a manual recording and not been able to season pass it, which is annoying.

    BBC1 Scotland looks fine up to 6am Sat 27th but seems to be mostly To Be Announced slots through the following times 6am - 5:50pm, 6pm - 3am Sun 28th, 3am - 12noon when it all looks to go back to normal.

    For the last few weeks, and still this week also, TiVo listings are showing Richard & Judy on channel 109 (Sky) "Watch" at 6pm each day. My season pass is catching them all, but when I watch, it's Doctor Who repeats.

    Digiguide shows Doctor Who correctly in that slot.

    Have just moved and had to reset TIVO and tune to a different TV Transmitter. Interesting that I have moved several miles North and only get good signal from transmitter many miles way until digital switchover.

    I live in South West Northants, but had to select Buckinghamshire to get old Central South (Oxford ITV) Freeview listings.

    The local ITV service from Oxford is ITV 1 Meridian, but the lineup still has it on as ITV 1 Thames Valley which went off air for good in February 2009?

    I am sure channel database is in step, but just wanted to make sure that it doesn't need changing over to ITV 1 Meridian.

    Programme Name: Torchwood: Children of Earth
    Date/Time: Mon 6th July - Fri 10th July 9:00pm
    Nature of Problem: Season Pass Issues

    The Season Pass that I set up recently now shows up in Recording History as "no longer in program guide".

    So I, and possibly you, will have to set up the new Season Pass that now takes its place.

    In my TiVoWeb, the Season Passes are as follow:-

    series/2098639 - Old, Empty Season Pass
    series/2106048 - New, Full Season Pass

    Your Mileage May Vary.

    It works with the original Torchwood id now - previously it was setup with its own id.

    Which is pointless anyway as SPs are channel-specific and it's never been on BBC1 before :rolleyes:

    But it didn't work for BBC3 which is where it was before - and again now.

    Also, BBCHD - so it needed fixing.

    Tivo has this starting at 11:20pm, but The Radio Times has this at 11:30pm.

    Might be worth adding 15 minutes padding.
