    Well those eps of Ugly Betty aren't in DigiGuide either as you've listed them. Neither is the DWC programme. So, to be pefectly honest, I don't see the problem.

    They may have been previously scheduled for those slots, but they're not on now. Unless you want your Tivo to record non-existant programmes; or did I completely mis-understand something?

    Sorry for the 'discussion' but my point is that I don't see any errors in the above post.

    The point is they were ON and shown, they just were not picked up by my season pass on my Tivo.

    As has been noted Working Lunch was in the same state, I got round it with a 2nd season pass. Ugly Betty and DWC may be different in digiguide, I don't use digiguide. I know that they get populated as generics then changed, my point is it's happening too late.

    What About Brian was on at that time, with tivo listing the same , and that same description, but for whatever reasons it was missed as something was changed and not picked up by my season pass.

    In the case of What about Brian Tivo says the cencelled one has

    What About Brian
    Episode Title What About Temptations
    Episode Description Dave's new boss turns out to be his former intern, and Brian's downstairs neighbours try to convince him to use his apartment for a party.
    Cancel Date Wed 12th Sep 02:34
    Cancel Reason Program Guide Changed
    Error String Program guide changed
    MFS Data tmsid=EP7568295019, ShowingObject,

    SeriesObject says

    Series 2502109/12 {
    ServerVersion = 3
    TmsId = SH756829
    Title = {What About Brian}
    Genre = 25 35 1002 1005
    Episodic = 1
    ServerId = 10787533
    Version = 12
    ThumbData = 268566912
    IndexPath = /Server/10787533


    The one that was shown at the same time and place was tmsid=EP7841765000

    with Series object

    Series 2766100/11 {
    ServerVersion = 2
    TmsId = SH784176
    Title = {What About Brian}
    Genre = 25 35 1002 1005
    Episodic = 1
    ServerId = 10978986
    Version = 1
    IndexPath = /Server/10978986

    When I go into the "new" version of the episode, I geet the option of Get Season Pass suggesting the series ID has been changed and hence breaking the season pass.

    Joking aside What not to wear is the same, same time, episode descriptions and not being picked up due to different Id's, and going into the "new" show I'm offered the Get Season Pass option rather than the Edit season pass I should get as I have a season pass for the series as it was.

    :confused: Today is the 13th September, so how any any of those UB eps have "been shown" already? :confused: ( I know they're repeats. That's not what I meant ;))

    Mon 17th Sep 11:00 C4 Ugly Betty
    Tue 18th Sep 10:00 C4 Ugly Betty
    Tue 18th Sep 10:55 C4 Ugly Betty
    Wed 19th Sep 10:00 C4 Ugly Betty
    Wed 19th Sep 10:55 C4 Ugly Betty
    Thu 20th Sep 10:00 C4 Ugly Betty
    Thu 20th Sep 10:55 C4 Ugly Betty

    Again, I'll apologise and been suitably embarrased if I have missed something :eek:

    That ep of "What About Brian" was on yesterday according to my Tivo, but then it also picked-up "Working Lunch" as the Daily Call was too early. That might have something to do with it :)

    I've been getting generic data entries followed by 'the programme is no longer in the guide data' for Two and a Half Men on PCOM1. Interestingly the dates of the generic entries is two weeks ahead (from 1st October to be precise). No idea if I'm missing anything.

    Perhaps some channels are now only doing two week refreshes of their data? Or perhaps I'm confused and the data only appears at the 1st of the month. OzSat?

    GD checker module in TivoWeb reports that PCOM1 has 'real' data for 1st Oct.

    Sorry your right, I was probably going a bit OTT and listing everything with the same typeof error (generic data and not in the guide)

    Re: Working Lunch
    Just realised myself that that's happened too.

    I wonder if it was thanks to them changing the times of some of the broadcasts this week? Tomorrow's runs from 12-12.45pm instead of 12.30-1.30, and I started adding a manual recording for the latter on a Friday because there were often times when it would presume the programme ran only from 12.30-1pm (like most other days) so I'd only get half a show :(

    Next week it's all over the place due to sport.

    BTW, I've just cancelled my usual season pass, tried to do another one and its come up telling me I can't, saying "Some information about this programme is still being compiled (or something). Try again in 1-3 hours", then then it's allowing me again.

    I think my TiVo's expressing my dislike of Ni(c)k Wood.

    Date:- Thursday 13th September 2007
    Program:- Hotel Inspector Unseen
    Platform:- Sky Digital
    Channel:- Five Life and Five Life+1 Ch 182 & 183

    The Program showing at 10pm on Five Life and and at 11pm on Five Life+1 tonight on Sky Digital is the 30 minute long Hotel Inspector Uncovered, as advertised on the preceding 9pm showing of Hotel Inspector on Five (Ch 105).

    The Sky EPG is correctly showing this 30 minute program at starting at 10pm on Five Life (182) and 11pm on Five Life+1 (183) but the Tivo EPG lists Build A New Life in the Country at 9pm on Five Life and 10pm on Five Life +1 and then shows that program as lasting for 90 minutes with no Hotel Inspector listed.

    Digiguide also correctly shows Build A New Life in the Country as being a 60 minute long program at 9pm on Five Life and 10pm on Five Life+1 followed by Hotel Inspector Uncovered an hour later, so how does Tribune just manage to lose track of the existence of Hotel Inspector Uncovered altogether, and to turn New Life In the Country in to a 90 minute program?

    Another "just broken" SP for you.

    "The West Wing", More4 (142 on Virgin Media) 20:00 Sundays.

    'No longer in programme guide' according to Recording History, but there plain as day in the EPG.

    What's going on ozsat? Despite yet another of Pete's OTT rants, I'd like to think this is just a hiccup rather than anything more sinister. What can I say; I'm a "half-full" kinda guy ;):D

    This has been wrong for some time now on Tivo but not on Sky EPG. Is there a bigger problem on Nick Jr and Nick Jr 2?

    Sky One - Current season of Weeds also became fractured for me this week but what I'd be interested to know is...

    BBC1 and BBC1 Scotland - Same Film, White Oleander (or something similar) with Billy Connolly but broadcast at differents times on different days had differing run times and the synopsis wasn't that similar. Both broadcasts were in the last week or so.

    How can the same programme have differing database entries?

    It looks like my existing season passes for "Without a Trace" on C4, C4+1 & More4 are now broken.

    Now seems to have been fixed. Sort-of. Both upcoming eps (this and next Sunday) are now showing up under both SPs/TMSIDs. Well it's a fix, I suppose :)

    "Working Lunch" still broked though :(

    OK well I can see what has happened - lots and lots of Season Passes have been destroyed and new ones created. In doing this all OAD information has also been lost. It's as if it is the first time it's being loaded into Tribune's UK database.
    Any SP starting with SH784xxx should be suspect (these seem to be the new batch) :mad:
    It's very important that the old Season Pass numbers are restored and the Episodes put back!

    Indeed. That's how I checked mine. An excellent mod :)

    So this is at least a little on-topic ;)...

    Last DC: Sunday 16th Sep at 02:26, but it was like this yesterday too. I've double-checked and both eps are still listed under both SPs :)

    Platform:- Sky Digital

    Program:- Captain Scarlet
    Date:- 17th September 2007
    Time:- 7.15am

    The episode shown by Tivo in its EPG is "Homecoming" but the episode actually shown was "Trap For A Rhino" which also matches with the listings at Digiguide.

    What's the betting that Tribune now reverts to Generic data as they previously only had for Captain Scarlet, instead of trying to smarten up their act and get the listings right. :mad:

    Erm, no they're not! As I write this (and your image shows it too), there is only one SP on my TiVo - and it's the rogue imposter 784235, not the real one :-(. The double tick on line 11 means that SP784235 was found on your TiVo. The blue dot on line 12 means that SP316991 was NOT found, but it did find SP784235 on More4 instead. If you hadn't created that SP11, the dot would've been orange not blue to alert you. Normally just scan down the page for the orange dots and check the titles. Btw those graphics are much better than the ones I created, where did you get them? Has someone improved my module but not sent me a copy!? :confused:

    Okay. That's weird, but probably correct :) However, at the time, I'm sure they were both showing up in both SPs :confused: No matter.

    As to the icons, sorry but it's so long since I added them I have no idea whose they are or where I got them from. I didn't even realise they weren't the originals :p
