    Its a feature of how the name is displayed in the SP list.

    The series name is always a copy of one of the programme names in that series - although within a series there can be different programme names although usually they would all be the same.

    So: with the series 'Bones' the programme name has always been 'Bones' - but there is another programme in the same series called 'Bones: The Story So Far' - and TiVo is display this programme name as the series 'title'.

    Hmmm... I don't understand the change of Season Pass name - this doesn't happen with episodes? (I'm confused about this - it's not a problem as such :) )

    Shouldn't it be SP "Bones" with an episode title of "Bones: The Story so far"?

    My SP for this is set for FRO, I'm very happy for specials to be recorded (don't you hate it when they don't?!) however in this case, my Tivo has picked up and scheduled 2 instances of the Cat Deely presented specials to record (the 1st last night), but no showings of the other special, and none of the new episodes. All have instances with nothing conflicting.

    All the specials and new and old episodes are listed in TivoWeb though under the "new" SP title.


    Concious that this in "No discussion" I'll leave it at that - but something appears not to be right.

    For specials (but not special episodes) to be recorded - then they have to be in the series - hence the problem.

    For display purposes making 'The story so far' an episode title would work - but would be factually incorrect.

    Its a fault in TiVo's system that a single SP can not link to different programme titles (IMHO).

    Sky One (on Sky Digital) is strange tonight. It lists Stargate:Atlantis as starting at 7PM and finishing at 8:30PM (90 minutes) and the Town Called Eureka from 8:30PM to 9PM (30 minutes). Clearly SG:A should finish at 8PM and Eureka start at 8PM.

    Bit irrelevant as it's after the event but last nights (Sunday the 4th) showing of Fanny Hill had a date of 2008 on it.

    I guess it's a typo , but if it's not can I have next saturdays lottery results please.

    More relevant was the TMSID was the same for the 2 ep's shown so were seen as the same episode.


    Fanny Hill
    Description After losing her parents to smallpox, Fanny travels to London where, employed by local madam Mrs Brown, her virtue is tested by the lascivious Mr Crofts. Eloping with her true love Charles, Fanny temporarily basks in happy domesticity.

    Date/Time: Twice Daily
    Problem: Broken Season Pass

    Autumnwatch on cbeebies isn't working - it seems like Tivo thinks they are all the same episode (there is one, shown twice, each day). It's doing the "another showing is/was available" message in the history).

    My daughter will be very disappointed! :)

    This is used very nicely on More 4 for The Daily Show. On Mondays they show the weekly "Global Edition" (also on CNN over the weekends). The programme name changes for this, and changes back to "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" for Tues-Fri.

    Apols for the OT post but while I'm at it - the programme is Dragons' Den (for >1 dragon), not Dragon's Den (which would only be for 1 dragon!). The BBC and TiVo happily both get it right. :D.

    Off to gather my next bunch of errors now :).

    Very hard to spot unless you log TMS IDs or happen to look at the data on a weekend before Sunday afternoon when you can see two episodes in the data.

    The Sunday episode is a duplicate of the previous Monday. In the above set, the 3rd episode should be different to 1+2.

    HI All,

    Ugly Betty has disappeared completely from the listings. It is not even finding it as a programme so there is no alternative to my season pass (which is set up for E4 +1). No episodes scheduled.

    There are episodes starting on the 18th according to the Channel 4 website so it is being shown.

    Please can you help? Wife is desperate and coming down with a cold :(

    According to the Channel 4 Website:
    E4 Sunday 18 Nov 8.00PM
    E4 Wednesday 21 Nov 9.00PM
    C4 Friday 23 Nov 9.00PM
    C4 Sunday 25 Nov 2.35PM

    Thanks

    You need to post the times it should be on so TiVo listings can be checked.

    Not Far...
    Callsign: BBC Two
    Channel Number: 102
    Provider: Sky Digital
    Postcode: RH5
    Programme Name: Long Way Down
    Date/Time: 4th Nov 9pm and 6th Nov 11.20pm
    Problem: Use of Generic instead of episode specific data causing repeat showing of program on Tuesday to be recorded by Season Pass

    My Season Pass for Long Way Down on BBC Two recorded both the episodes on 4th November at 9pm and Tuesday 6th November 11.20pm, even the Tuesday showing is a repeat of the Sunday program.

    I would have thought that Long Way Down fell under the heading of a popular series on one of the main channels at peak evening viewing time that Tribune staff would be under special instructions to make sure to get right, even though getting everything right on all the channels they cover at all times in terms of Series Linking is obviously a huge task.

    This seems to have been fixed this week and only the Sunday program was recorded by my SP but out of interest who was at fault here? Was it Tribune or was it the BBC in the way that they supplied the original data?
