    I have two season passes producing strange results:

    Blood & Guts: A History of Surgery BBC4
    The season pass has a title of "Ainme Eile" & also includes episodes of "Fossil Detectives" in its programmes to record

    Masterchef: The Professionals BBC2
    The season pass has a title of "Primetime Extra" and also includes episodes of "What Are You Like?" & "The Wrong Door" & "Takin' over the Asylum" in its programmes to record

    [SIZE="1"](Any suggestions, for future reference, how I format a table like this,
    without having to manually space everything out?)[/SIZE]
    But if I follow the link to "Before I Call You In" it belongs to a series called "The Last Word Monologues" which also contains the 10 episodes above.

    From the messages higher up the thread, I take it that this is an error in the downloaded program guide data, rather than a corruption on my TiVo? Any idea when this might be fixed?

    I have the same problem above with Masterchef: the Professionals (on Virgin Media).

    Can't find it in a programme search, but when I locate it in the guide, and choose a season pass, it says it will also record 'What are you like?', 'ATL Summer Live' and 'Thames Shipwreck' (or something - it's cut off).

    The problem where series are being merged into one - which lists several series under one name - has been identified.

    The latest I have is the data you receive over night on Wednesday night should fix the problem.

    Please re-check after you have "successful guide data to Wednesday 17th September"

    Thanks for your help.

    Do you know if these changes will affect the Season Passes that have already been set?

    Yes - in most cases (AIUI).

    The problem is that several series ended up on TiVo with the same id - and there are several ids with multiple series.

    If you are lucky your series will be OK but in most cases a new id has to be used.

    Well, if it's the beginning of the end for TiVo in the UK - by wearing us all down with bad guide data - the new trainee has got off to a flyer!!! :p

    Callsign: FIVE
    Programme Name: Neighbours
    Date/Time: Mon-Fri, 13:45 starting from September 8th
    Nature of Problem: Wrong episode synopsis

    This is a weird one. While the OAD is correct, the programme synopsis is the same, hence only the first ep with this synopsis (Sept 8) will record.

    This is an episode from last year.

    There is, of course, still time to get it fixed but I only mention it now as I am going away later this week and, while I do normally delete the SP for this show (and Home & Away) while I'm away, I just thought this error was worth pointing out for those who still might want the show recording.

    Nature of Problem: Wrong episode description

    This is highlights of the days action in the Tour of Britain cycling race, but the program description for each day is 'Highlights from the opening day of the Tour of Britain' so Tivo is ignoring all episode but the first.

    The problem where next week's episodes are repeating from the first episode next week - should be fixed in tomorrow night's download - when guide data to date goes to 'Thursday 25 September'.

    Actually, this may have been fixed last night - any problems now?

    All showings showing OAD of 24/01/2008

    This is causing season pass to fail to record.
