    Callsign: More4
    Programme Name: True stories: The Kidnapping of Ingrid Betancourt
    Date/Time: Jan 15 / 23:05 (& Jan 16 / 02:50)
    Problem: Tivo does not see this as an episode of the True Stories series.

    Callsign: BBC2
    Programme Name: Torchwood
    Date/Time: 23 Jan 2008, 7:00 PM
    Problem: Tivo picks this up as part of the Torchwood Season Pass, episode listings are also wrong.

    The 7PM showing is an edited, sanitized for children, version of the "real" 9PM showings, so this needs to be identified with a different series ID.

    Also, the 7PM showings are a repeat of the previous week's 9PM showing, so the episode titles listed at present are wrong.
    16 Jan BBC2/9PM: Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang
    23 Jan BBC2/7PM: Sleeper - should be "Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang" (same as 16th).

    I have been trying to persuade Tribune and ITV that the Formula One Qualifying and Formula One Highlights programs should have a different program name and thus a different Tivo Season Pass from the actual Formula One Racing live race program for ages without success. And given the number of hours of qualifying and highlights Formula One programs in a year this is not a trivial problem.

    So your problem sounds like a variant on my issue and I therefore wish you the very best of luck in attempting to persuade the BBC, Tivo Customer Services and/or Tribune of the error of their ways. Unfortunately a similar problem occurred with Dr Who Confidential where there was both a full version and an edited version half the length and the Dr Who Confidential Season Pass picked up both.

    The 7pm episodes are as originally published by the BBC - they have not corrected on TiVo yet - or other online listings services.

    The 7pm episodes are now corrected - and the 7pm editions have their own id - so TiVo viewers can select either or both early and late evening versions.

    The existing SP will continue as the late version.

    The changes will be seen from Wednesday's download.

    Hmmm that was easy and painless.

    So why isn't it possible to have Formula One Racing on ITV1 split up in to Formula One Qualifying, Formula One Highlights and Formula One Racing (live race) series in the same convenient way? The current arrangement of many hours of programs all being under just the single Formula One Racing series id is extremely inconvenient. Especially if you have your SP set as Keep Until I Delete.

    Having said that problems would still be caused by the tendency of ITV to now show early evening live races in South America on ITV2, ITV3 or ITV4 instead of ITV1.

    Can I second the separate TMSIDs for F1 Quali\Highlights\Race, please?
