    Very strange. It was definitely the Monday showings that were missing a couple of days ago - I had to tell TiVo to record MacGuyver in order to get Charlie Jade on Monday night.

    Checking further, it seems that Digiguide is wrong as it shows spurious broadcasts during on Sunday evenings.

    All very confusing. The g0ood thing is that the TiVo EPG now seems to be correct.

    Regards,

    Martin

    Looks as if FX have been doing late changes and not telling everyone.

    If Tribune got the updates on Friday - you would not have seen them until you update on Sunday - which could have been very late.

    Best to get TiVo to do updates as early as possible - but after 1am.


    As a guide, the Guide Data To Date 'day' should be the same as the day today - except there is no new days worth of data on a Monday. So the Guide Data Ro Date 'Day' for today (Tuesday) should also be Tuesday.

    Please ensure this is true before posting errors here - as some problems reported have already been fixed but the users TiVo is not up-to-date.

    Sorry OzSat, but that first red sentence made no sense to me at all. Can you explain it to an idiot, please?

    Sorry!

    In the System Information page, and on the Phone page of TivoWeb, the Prog. Guide Data to field will state something like
    Monday 29th Oct 2007.

    The day of the week should be today's day of the week;
    if it isn't, your Guide Data isn't up to date, and you shouldn't post errors until it is.

    That's it - although the Guide Data Date To day is never a Monday - so on a Monday it says Sunday (as it does on a Sunday) and on a Tuesday it says Tuesday.

    If it is not today's day - then you guide data is not up-to-date (unless the servers are down).

    Now back to bring On Topic for this thread.

    It's over a week since I reported these two now, but neither has been fixed; please can they be kicked very hard? :) Both series now have more new episodes loaded into the rogue SP. Thanks for fixing Megastructures btw.

    Programme Name: Penn & Teller: Bulls...!
    Date/Time (shown on TiVo): below
    Problem type: wrong episode data

    Firstly, the series title is censored :-(. From past experience I doubt this will be fixed but I strongly re-protest about this.

    Secondly, there is the same problem as with Mythbusters on Discovery last month.
    Several old episodes (which are being repeated and already have Episode records at Tribune) have somehow been allocated new TmsIDs and marked as 1st Runs :-(

    Code:
    No. Channel	Date		Time	TmsId		IsEp	Oiginal Air Date	1stRun	Episode title
     7 FXUK    	Tue 23rd Oct	01:10	[COLOR=Red]EP5478185036[/COLOR]	True	Tue 23rd Oct 2007	Yes	"Cryptozoology"
      8 FXPLUS  	Tue 23rd Oct	03:10	[COLOR=Red]EP5478185036[/COLOR]	True	Tue 23rd Oct 2007	Yes	"Cryptozoology"
      9 FXUK    	Sun 28th Oct	02:20	[COLOR=Red]EP5478185036[/COLOR]	True	Tue 23rd Oct 2007	Yes	"Cryptozoology"
     10 FXPLUS  	Sun 28th Oct	04:20	[COLOR=Red]EP5478185036[/COLOR]	True	Tue 23rd Oct 2007	Yes	"Cryptozoology"
    
    "Cryptozoology" is not new, and was EP5478185029 when it was last shown.


    Code:
     11 FXUK    	Tue 30th Oct	02:10	[COLOR=Red]EP5478185037[/COLOR]	True	Tue 30th Oct 2007	Yes	"Ground Zero"
     12 FXPLUS  	Tue 30th Oct	04:10	[COLOR=Red]EP5478185037[/COLOR]	True	Tue 30th Oct 2007	Yes	"Ground Zero"
    
    "Ground Zero" is not new, and was EP5478185030 when it was last shown.



    Channel Callsign: BBCR4FM
    Programme Name: The News Quiz
    Date/Time (shown on TiVo): below
    Problem type: 28-day rule not working/duplicates

    Code:
    No. Channel	Date		Time	TmsId		IsEp	Oiginal Air Date	1stRun	Episode title
      1 BBCR4FM 	Fri 12th Oct	18:30	EP5178905048	True	Fri  5th Oct 2007	Yes	(no title)

      3 BBCR4FM 	Fri 19th Oct	18:30	[COLOR=Green]EP5178905030[/COLOR]	True	Fri 13th Oct 2006	No	(no title)
      4 BBCR4FM 	Sat 20th Oct	12:30	[COLOR=Green]EP5178905030[/COLOR]	True	Fri 13th Oct 2006	No	(no title)
    
      5 BBCR4FM 	Fri 26th Oct	18:30	[COLOR=Red]EP5178905030[/COLOR]	True	Fri 13th Oct 2006	No	(no title)
    
    The 5th episode here is EP5178905030 but it should be different otherwise it won't get recorded.
    (Tommorrow's episode should have been EP5178905048 to match today's because it is a duplicate, but I realist it's too late to fix now.)



    Channel Callsign: BBCR7
    Programme Name: Just a Minute
    Date/Time (shown on TiVo): Thursdays at 12:30, repeated at 19:30
    Problem type: 28-day rule not working/duplicates


    Code:
    No. Channel	Date		Time	TmsId		IsEp	Oiginal Air Date	1stRun	Episode title
      1 BBCR7   	Thu 18th Oct	12:30	EP5205115062	True	Thu 15th Feb 2007	No	(no title)
      2 BBCR7   	Thu 18th Oct	19:30	EP5205115062	True	Thu 15th Feb 2007	No	(no title)
    

    Every single week, EP5205115062 is used. That would be ok for 1 week and it's nice to have the duplicate pair on the same day - but not every week; a Season Pass won't work and will not record more than 1 episode a month.

    Prime Minister's Questions OAD on BBCPARL has been tweaked (Thanks!), but it isn't right yet. The 'episodes' now have an OAD of Wed 6th Mar 2002.

    This means that TiVo cannot just pick up the new live 'episode'. It also means that TiVo will not record each weekly 'episode' due to the 28 day rule (well, mine doesn't anyway).

    Episode Title <none>
    Episode Description Coverage of questions in the House of Commons to the Prime Minister, Tony Blair. (!)
    Episode Number <blank>
    Duration 0:30
    Original Air Date Wed 6th Mar 2002
    Genres News, Public Affairs, Politics
    Type Series
    Channel 612 BBCPARL
    Showing Date Wed 17th Oct 12:00

    If you've got season passes on ITV1 and ITV4 for Formula 1, you might wanna check your TO DO list. I noticed that the qualifying on ITV4 wasn't going to record for me this upcoming weekend. I'm too tired to find out why, but here's a quick heads-up.

    I've just noticed that a FROSP for "Smallville" (new eps Sun @ 9pm, repeated Sat @ 7pm) on E4 won't work. However, a FR&RSP picks-up far too many of the repeats to be useful :(

    Probably too far into the season to worry now though!

    OAD is wrong, however, from this weekend on there appear to be no more "old" repeats in the data so a regular SP should be fine.

    Heads Up

    Not content with moving Sunday's repeat of Match of the Day from BBC1 to BBC2,
    the Beeb have moved Match of the Day 2 to from BBC2 to BBC1.

    Just a head's up for those that might not spot it.

    Match of the Day 2
    Sunday 21 October
    10:20pm - 11:05pm
    BBC1

    BBC2 NI, Listings for tonight, 1/11/ and tomorrow 2/11 are incorrect. An example, according to the EPG the Tudors are on now (21:30) instead of this time tomorrow.

    Problem : - Broken SP?

    There is something odd going on with "Bones" - the Season Pass I had from last season has been renamed to "Bones: The Story So Far" which is a the typical tacky behind the scenes sort of thing, aimed at those who have never watched the show before...

    Anyway. The SP only picks up this non-series programme, and has failed to pick up any of the new Episopes (starting Thursday 8th Nov), even though the First Run dates are this year, and there are no conflicts with other programmes.

    I don't think that there is a problem with the Season Pass picking up the specials (there should be two BTW) since I *do* view these as part of the series. Last time I looked our existing SP was due to record the new series next week, but we don't use FROSP (I'm not clear if you do).
