    And what exactly was the cause of this little slip up by Tribune and/or the BBC?

    Problem: OAD is the US OAD! Breaks First Run Only SP

    OAD for the series premiere on Sky One (9 Jan 21:00) is Fri 6th Oct 2006 - this is the date the episode aired in the US! First Run only season passes are not picking up this series as a result. Same problem is affecting all subsequent episodes too.

    This has been discussed at great length in the past - for many series once it is in the Tribune database it will have the original (worldwide) air-date. Please don't discuss it here - I know why there should be a UK date - there is a thread somewhere.

    Programme Name: Lazytown
    Date/Time: 6/1/07 09:00 (am told its happened at other times by my 5yr old!)
    Problem:
    TiVo guide data is showing "Lazytown" from 09:00-09:30. NTL Digiguide (& broadcast) is showing "Fifi and the flowertots" at this time. Tivo is correctly showing "Lazytown" from 09:30-10:00 though.

    Do Rapture TV send out their listings to be used?

    Carrying them on a website is one thing - but some channels just won't send their listings out.

    Best option is to pester Rapture to get the listings on TiVo - it worked recently for some other channels.

    I would imagine that Rapture are jolly keen for as many other listing companies as possible apart from Sky to carry their listings in view of the below formal complaint they have recently registered with Ofcom about the amount they are being charged by Sky to appear in their EPG listings.

    See:- www.ofcom.org.uk/bulletins/comp_bull_index/comp_bull_ocases/open_all/cw_920/

    It unfortunately appears to be Sky's current practice to charge punitive rates for EPG listings for channels who want to be in their EPG listings but who do not agree to become a pay tv channel in one of the basic Sky Mixes.

    I would have thought that if someone emailed the Case Leader anthony.szynkaruk@ofcom.org.uk about this dispute asking for the appropriate contact at Rapture who filed the complaint that they might then be very keen indeed to establish contact with Tribune to get their listings carried on another non Sky EPG service.

    I achieved success recently for Zone Thriller and True Movies 1 and 2 in getting Tribune to list them because Zone Thriller already had contact with Tribune for Zone's other channels whilst I think Tribune realised the case for carrying listings on TrueMovies 1 & 2 was pretty overwhelming, given that these two channels have far higher viewer numbers than many more obscure pay tv channels in the basic Sky Mixes.

    But Rapture is an interesting one because they very clearly do want as many people as possible to carry their listings.

    The main stumbling block seems to be Tribune who are not very keen to carry channel listings for new broadcasting organisations they do not already have a relationship with like Rapture. As we saw with the launch of Five Life and Five US listings happen straight away with Tribune for new channels from existing broadcasters that they already have an established automated mechanism for collecting the EPG data from.

    P.S. ozsat please feel free to split these posts off into a separate thread for Rapture Tv Listings if you deem it appropriate.

    Which part of 'no discussion here' do you not understand?
    I don't think Ozsat needs your permission to move your spamming to another thread.
    I subscribe to this thread and I get an email whenever a post is made here....and if it's not a genuine error...it's just spam in my inbox. :mad:

    Problem Encountered: Actor's name not appearing in cast list.

    An actor wishlist for Smith, Sheridan does not pickup any programmes. In the programme 'Two Pints Of Lager' only two actors names appear in the 'Programme Detail' screen.

    Digiguide lists it properly.

    Date: Sunday 7th January 2007 (starting in 1 hour and 22 minutes)

    Crab. Series 5, episode 7.
    Sitcom about the lives and loves of five twentysomethings in Runcorn. Janet and Jonny go missing on their wedding day. Gaz resorts to a desperate plan to save the day. Louise gets sentenced for shooting Jonny.

    This in fact seems to be a perfectly legitimate discussion with further helpful explanation as to why the Listings data for a whole Sky channel (Rapture) is not being provided by Tribune. In my opinion all of that missing data constitutes a multiple 3 week long listings error.

    And to be quite honest I would have thought that all the data for various program channels on Sky being missing was distinctly more important to most Tivo users than the omission of two actors from the cast list of an epidsode of Two Pints. This kind of very small error is almost bound to happen from time to time no matter how good Tribune are. But Tribune leaving out whole Sky channels with program content at will is just unbelievably inconvenient and capricious of them.

    I have just had to set up three manual recordings of the Ofcom International Conference on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday this week on Ch 181 Inormation Tv precisely because once again Tribune has not bothered to provide any EPG listings for this channel. Again this seems considerably more significant than the omission of just two actors from the Two Pints cast list!

    So my error isn't important then? I pay my sub and I have every right to report any errors, small or not, as I see fit. Not only for my benefit but for others as well.

    It is not a very small error...it is in fact a very large one that renders the Wishlist system useless. The Wishlist and the SP system are perhaps the jewel in the tivo crown and is almost always brought up as why tivo is better than any other PVR including sky+. The reality is, and it's painful for many tivo owners to admit, tivo is no better or worse than other devices.

    Not questioning your right to have this fixed. Just questioning your right to challenge people complaining about a whole raft of Sky channels that show actual tv programs rather than teleshopping or adult chat services that Tribune haven't provided EPG data for.

    I tend to regard anything that a Wishlist picks up as being a bonus rather than something I can count on and I tend to use Wishlists to back up some Season Passes on stuff I really don't want to miss in case Tribune manages to disconnect the Season Pass on the next series. I personally only use title and keyword wishlists and I reckon that relying on actor or directors matching is very hit or miss as there are plenty of programs on the lesser satellite channels that only give a brief program description and don't list the actors or the director at all.

    I agree Tivo is not perfect (in large part due to the erractic quality of some of the Tribune data) but it seems to be a great deal better than either Sky Plus or TV Drive in most facilities, apart of course from the lack of dual tuner or HD compatibility.
