    The episode shown by Tivo in its EPG is "Mercury Falling" but the episode actually shown was "Heist", which is also the episode indicated as due today in the listings found at Digiguide and in the Sky Digital EPG for this channel.

    Not wishing to make this a discussion have you reported this by phone to Tivo (ie the official route)?

    Erm... Pete. This thread's for future listings that are wrong :) Not a great deal of point telling about something that's already been shown, is there? :confused:

    Knebworth,...
    Callsign: SMOVACT ("Sky Movies Action/Thriller" on Sky Digital channel 304)
    Programme Name: "The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift" (TmsId MV762771)
    Date/Time: Monday 24 September 2007, 12:00 and 21:00
    Problem: Seems to be an unwanted duplicate programme entered into the database, a typo. Duh. I believe these should actually use "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" (TmsId MV743767), which also has some showings scheduled soon...

    Is it my imagination, or are there an unusual number of issues with guide data recently? Has something significant changed at Tribune (staff, software, etc.)?

    It is a future related issue as Tribune seems to have got the individual EPG listings wrong for the whole of this run of Captain Scarlet.

    Also I have seen other people mention issues about programs that have not recorded etc here but already been broadcast due to faulty EPG data etc without anyone claiming that was not a legitimate issue for this thread. Anyhow Carl no discussions here. You are one of the first to complain when anyone apart form you does it.

    Program:- Captain Scarlet
    Time:- 7.15am
    Date:- 20th September 2007

    The problem with incorrect episode data for Captain Scarlet has now been fixed and today's episode in the Tivo EPG was "Virus" and the episode actually broadcast was also Virus too.

    So it seems Tribune are reading this thread and issues reported in it are usually being fixed. :) :up:

    "This programe was not recorded because it was no longer in the programme guide."

    Damn the golf for mucking this up. I could watch it online but when you want to skip through it like on the TiVo because not all of it is of interest..... buffering.... buffering.... buffering.... :mad:

    Mine recorded fine. The SP was broke and then got fixed though, so that might have something to do with it :)

    Thanks. I'd set up a new SP as well :(

    I blame Nick Wood, myself. He just annoys me because he's one of those "forward slash" people :)

    Erm, Bad Boys 2 is on tonight (21/9/2007) at 10:30pm till 1:15am on UKTV GOLD VM channel 124. Tivo is reporting it as "Euromillions: Boom-bang-a-bang!" from 10:20 till 1:15
    why is tivo wrong? the virgin cable guide reports it right so why can't my trusty tivo?

    If it was a last-minute schedule changes then Tivo can't handle them. I think there's something like a three-day turn-around required from notice to getting it in the EPG.

    (Sorry for the OT, just wanted to explain!)

    I don't think it's a last minute change thing, the euromillions does start at 10:20, just it's only 10 minutes long.

    Channel : - 103 ITV1
    Program : - F1 Japanese Grand Prix
    Time/Date Of Airing : - 4:30am
    Date : - Sun 30th September 2007
    Problem : - Programme missing from guide data & SP

    My SP for F1 will record the qualifying on Sat 29th at 5:30am and the Highlights but the Live GP itself is completely missing from guide data. TiVo has Antiques Auction & ITV Nightscreen in that slot. Please fix asap.

    Digiguide has it...

    MOTORING: F1: Grand Prix Live
    On: ITV1 (103)
    Date: Sunday 30th September 2007 (starting in 7 days)
    Time: 04:30 to 07:35 (3 hours and 5 minutes long)

    Japanese.
    Steve Rider presents live coverage of the Japanese Grand Prix. For round 15 of the World Championship, Formula One returns to the Fuji International Speedway after an absence of 30 years. Britain's Lewis Hamilton has a two point lead over McLaren team-mate Fernando Alonso, but will the pair be able to keep their cool, or will their bitter rivalry get the better of them? James Allen and Martin Brundle commentate.


    ITV website TV listings has it...

    F1: Japanese Grand Prix Live
    ITV 1 Border
    Steve Rider introduces coverage of the 15th round of the season at the Fuji Speedway, a circuit hosting its first Grand Prix since 1977. Fernando Alonso came from fifth on the grid to secure victory at Suzuka last year and, when Michael Schumacher was forced to retire because of engine failure, effectively guaranteed himself a second successive world title. This race is sure to have another huge say on the outcome of the world championship crown, with McLaren team-mates Alonso and Lewis Hamilton embroiled in an enthralling battle that could go in either direction. Commentary by James Allen and Martin Brundle
    Sport/Formula One
    Sunday 30th September on ITV 1 from 4:30am to 7:35am


    ....but Tribune don't. :thumbsdown:

    EDIT: I realise that Ozsat...but why is the Live GP missing but the Highlights, which is broadcast some seven hours later that day, is in the guide data.
    My SP is set to record the Qualifying and the Highlights only...the Live GP is missing.
    If the Live GP timeslot was TBA..then I wouldn't be so concerned...but there are other (wrong) programmes listed in the GP timeslot. This is a legitimate error, IMO.

    For BBC/ITV - the schedules on TiVo are not complete for the following Saturday onwards until usually after the Sunday update.

    This has always been the case!

    Too late to fix, but in case anyone is enjoying the repeats on Sky Two:

    Channel Callsign: SKYTWO
    Programme Name: Battlestar Galactica
    Date/Time (shown on TiVo): Sunday 23rd September 02:40
    Problem type: wrong data

    The next episode - Resurrection Ship part 2 (212) has suddenly been removed from TiVo's guide and has been replaced with "Premier League All Stars Extra Time" (?). Neither Digiguide nor the Sky EPG has this change, and so I think it's wrong. Particularly as the next one is still there.

    TiVo users will have to set a manual recording.

    The following episode at 03:30 - Epiphanies (213) is still in TiVo's guide.

    Too late to fix, for info only.


    Postcode : - DG2
    Platform : - Sky Digital
    Channel : - 119 ITV3
    Program : - F1 Japanese Grand Prix Qualifying
    Time/Date Of Airing : - 5:30am
    Date : - Sat 29th September 2007
    Problem : - Programme won't record due to 28 day rule

    My SP for F1 won't record the live Qualifying due to the 28 day rule.....but the repeat on ITV1 at 10am will be recorded. :confused:

    Tivo also thinks that the Qualifying was due to be broadcast on ITV1 but 'is no longer in the guide data'..possibly because it's been moved to ITV3
