    A belated Report but a particularly bad example of inaccurate EPG data for Eurosport 2. I have only just got round to watching these recordings.

    Series - Destination Dakar - Sky Ch 411 - 5 Episodes

    All of the below are billed as episodes of Destination Dakar (Generic data only with no episode information)

    Saturday 30th Dec 3.25pm Eurosport 2 - Program Shown was not Destination Dakar
    Saturday 30th Dec 3.45pm Eurosport 2 - Program Shown was not Destination Dakar
    Saturday 30th Dec 4.15pm Eurosport 2 - Program Shown was not Destination Dakar
    Saturday 30th Dec 5.00pm Eurosport 2 - Program Shown was not Destination Dakar
    Saturday 30th Dec 5.15pm Eurosport 2 - Program Shown was not Destination Dakar

    Although Eurosport is notorious for having scant regard for sticking to its EPG or running on time is this particular error Tribune's or Eurosport's fault. As I didn't watch these programs at the time I don't have any other EPG sources to refer back to.

    OAD's on these episodes are wrongly set causing FRO SPs to fail.

    Correct OADs are Jan 16 for Exodus 1 and Jan 23rd for Exodus 2

    This has ben a problem for me for a while.

    LN2 area

    Freeview lists Cbeebies as channel 68
    (I've retuned it several times over the past six months and it remains at 68)

    Tivo doesn't list anything at 68 on my set up but does have Cbeebies listed at 71.
    Trouble is, 71 on my Freeview box is BBC One Extra.
    All other Freeview and aerial channels are in the right place.
    I've been through guided set up again but it stays the same.

    Any ideas please. My son is getting a good education in music but it's not the Teletubbies he wants!

    The fault is with your Freeview box and not Tivo. CBeebies should be on Freeview Channel 71.

    You need to consult the instruction manual for your Freeview box and see if there is a factory reset option to delete everything and do a full rescan. As CBeebies was previously on Ch 31 befor it moved to Ch71 I'm at a loss to understand how it ever ended up on Ch68 on your box.

    If you have TivoWeb there is a way to hack Tivo channel numbers but I wouldn't recommend that when its your Freeview box that is in error here. What make is the Freeview box? They are so cheap that if the problem can't be solved you could always buy another one.

    Tribune seem to have totally given up bothering to link together mini series of 3 episodes or less lately - even on Ch 1 to 5. Somebody needs to give them a kick up the you know where.

    And I thought it was only Sky+ where a Series Link wasn't always made available for a program. :eek:

    Programme Name:Channel 4 News
    Date/Time: Mondays 7:00pm
    Problem: Season Pass Split

    Monday's episode of Channel 4 News has become detached from the Season Pass.

    This resulted in last Monday's episode (Jan 15th) not be picked up, as well as the 22nd and 29th also being ignored.

    It never ceases to amaze me people actually have an SP for the news when there are 24 hour live news channels out there. :confused:

    Problem: Incorrect OAD

    The OAD for this programme is 15th July 2006. It should be 20th Jan 2007, as it is in fact the first of a new series of seven shows. (Also the episode numbers will need adding)

    Callsign: Sky One
    Programme: Stargate SG-1
    Date/Time: Tuesday 6th February 20:00
    Problem: OAD incorrect

    The episode of SG-1 first screened on Tuesday 16th Jan was "Line in the Sand" (Season 10 Ep 12). However, TiVo thinks it was "Bounty" (Season 10 Ep 15), which is not scheduled to air until 6th Feb. TiVo has this listed correctly (albeit with an OAD of 16th Jan), but of course won't record it since it thinks it's already got it (28 day rule).

    More of a "Heads Up" really, as I don't see how Tribune can correct this without breaking the Season Pass.

    Not really a scheduling error, but worth mentioning. The Lost Room is given proper episode titles for Sky One showings, but repeat showings are given "Night One", "Night Two" and "Night Three". My guess is that this is because the episode titles were changed for the UK showings on Sky One but Tribune forgot to change the titles from the American titles for Sky Two.

    The Lost Room was shown on three consecutive nights in the States, and the "Night One" type titles make a lot more sense if thy know that.

    It just added a little confusion when I was trying to recommend the series to a friend who hadn't seen the first episode on Sky One.

    I could be wrong as I don't watch it, but I think the Saturday show is a repeat of one of the ones from the previous week, so would not be blocked by an FRO season pass.

    C4 don't appear to provide episode details so TiVo won't invok ethe 28-day rule either.
