    Problem: Not in Tivo's Guide Data

    This appears to have dropped out of the listings, so if you want it, you'll have to set a manual recording.

    All part of the ever deteriorating quality of listings that now seems to be being supplied by Tribune.

    Sunday 22nd Oct
    BBC3
    21:00
    Torchwood
    Duration 100minutes

    Digiguide & bbc.co.uk reckon duration is 50 mins for Part 1 AND 50 mins for Part

    Tivo seem to have combined them into one episode!

    9:00 pm - 9:30 Torchwood 1/13.
    9:30pm - 10:40pm Torchwood 2/13.

    There is confusion in the listings with these two episodes running back-to-back - have a look at 10.30pm on Tuesday on Digiguide etc.

    I see what you mean and even the BBC site lists it as

    Tue: 10:30 pm - 00:10 Torchwood
    1&2/13. Everything changes/Day One: A murder leads WPC Cooper to Torchwood; Torchwood must stop a sex addicted alien. Some strong language and sexual scenes. [AD,S]

    It could be that the Sunday version is two distinct episodes and the Tuesday edited into one showing?m <fx: straw clutching>

    :)

    During today and tomorrow, the listings for Tru Movies, Tru Movies 2 and Zone Thriller will appear.

    Hopefully the schedule source is now reliable.

    I have started a thread about how my persistence in pursuing Tribune and these channels about providing this missing EPG data paid off here:-

    History HD schedules (for those that want them) will appear in Friday's download - late release by Sky.

    I've had a wishlist for "WarGames" for quite some time now but nothing has ever shown up in it. Imagine my surprise, then, to be perusing DigiGuide when I see that it is, in fact, to be shown tonight!! However, not according to Tivo :(

    Problem: Not in Tivo's Guide Data

    To make sure, I've just forced a daily call and it's still not there.

    There is a problem with today's data - in that there isn't any. It has been reported.

    Huh? :confused: You mean my daily call didn't update anything? Anyway, just FYI it's being repeated - in the same slot - on Tuesday 14th.

    Problem: Orphaned episode (including repeat) does not share same TMSID as rest of season.

    Sorry I can't give the TMSIDs as my "cross-check sp's" module is broken at the moment and I don't know how to fix it :(

    Edit: (Module okay now. Here's the info)

    TMSIDs
    Original - SH954274
    Orphaned Eps - SH955145

    I didn't know there was a "cross-checjk sps" module for TivoWeb in the first place. Where exactly would I find the thread about it?

    Or is it one of those TivoWeb add on facilities like Daily Mail Jazz or the Digiguide cross check module for which the benefits are probably infinitely smaller than the amount of time and effort required to keep it operational? This is as opposed to say modules like Highlights and Tracker for which the benefits are enormous and the installation and subsequent maintenance a doddle.

    I'm referring to this module. It's one of my fave modules and takes very little setting up at all :)

    Also, it's not actually "broken" it's just not wanting to play at the moment! (See posts 9-12 in above thread.)

    Programme Name: HOME AND AWAY
    Date/Time: MONDAY 27TH NOVEMBER (yes, NOW!)
    Problem: Orphaned episode (TMSID SH965542) does not share same TMSID as the others; SH225088

    This is affecting episodes shown on FIVELIF too. As follows:

    HOME AND AWAY (SH965542) - FIVELIF(5) FIVE(1*)
    HOME AND AWAY (SH225088) - FIVE(17) FIVELIF(5)

    *Todays as stated
    Only noticed when Tivo didn't start recording it!

    Ah yes I already have GD Checker installed but never seem to have much cause to to use it. It seems to revolve around lots of SP ticks and then programs of a similar name which are not part of the SP also being shown alongside in case they might be an orphan.

    Perhaps I already have so much stuff recorded and that I'm never going to manage to catch up on that I don't worry about the odd extra program that might get away from me. After all this can be caused not just by Orphaning but the more usual problem of a recording time clash in which the program you most wanted to record unfortunately had a lower SP order than the one that actually recorded.

    Having said that i have seen some quite bad examples lately of mini series of 3 or 4 episodes over 3 or 4 weeks on Ch 1 to 5 that Tribune has failed to bother to link up but I have been either too lazy or too resigned to the mediocre service that Tribune is generally apparently content to provide to make a post about it.

    Perhaps I am still resting on my laurels and basking in complacent satisfaction at my stunning victory with Tribune over their previous omission of EPG data for TrueMovies 1 and 2 and Zone Thriller. ;) :p

    Tribune have failed to link up the following 2 part mini series:-

    BBC2 Tsunami: The Aftermath 28th Nov & 5th Dec at 9pm

    Tribune is treating these as two entirely independent episodes with no series link so I was forced to set up a Wishlist when I heard about this program as the second episode wasn't available in the Tivo EPG data at that stage although I see it now is.

    Is it really asking too much for Tribune to at least get this stuff right on BBC1, BBC2, ITV1, Ch4, Five which at the end of the day are still the channels which most people watch by far the most programs on.

    The only reason Tivo is now more reliable than Sky Plus is if you use a Title Wishlist as Tribune can't necesarily be trusted to do the job right. Unfortunately Title Wishlists are not always appropriate where old versions of the series are also being shown on UK Gold, UK Documentary, UK People etc, etc as those episodes then also get recorded.

    1. You think Sky+ can. Their Series Link is (apparently) worse that Tivo
    2. Other than my last couple of posts on here, my 40+ SPs have worked perfectly for ages.

    Yes, there are problems, but I think 99% of SPs working 99% of the time is quite acceptable :)

    Perhaps my expectations are a little too high considering how poor are the various current alternatives.

    Just thinking about Wishlists again they could be made almost perfect if you were allowed to specify either that they only covered certain channel numbers and/or that they specifically excluded certain channel numbers.

    I don't suppose the Series 3 Tivo has such functionality does it?

    No discussions guys! Some people subscribe to email alerts from this thread for listings errors, and are getting swamped at the moment
