    More of a heads-up unless it makes it into Thursday's download, but the 8pm ep of "The Simpsons" has been pre-empted for...

    It's not made it into the DG listings either yet :)

    Platform:- Sky Digital
    Channel:- 102 BBC Two
    Program:- Top Gear
    Showing:- Sunday 28th Jan at 8pm and Wednesday 31st Jan at 7pm

    My First Run Only Season Pass for Top Gear on BBC Two recorded the first episode of the new series correctly on Sunday 28th Jan at 8pm. However it then also recorded the repeat showing of the program on Wednesday 31st Jan at 7pm - this clearly should not have happened under both the 28 day rule and under the First Run Only rule.

    This has happened before with my Top Gear Season Pass also picking up the repeat showing later on in the week.

    Is this caused by the program not having proper episode data and only having generic data (surprising from the BBC of all people) or quite what exactly?

    Tonight's Mythbusters on Discovery (10pm) and Discovery+1 (11pm) is missing. Tivo thinks Tigers Attack is on for two hours instead of one.

    BA2, Sky, etc, etc

    Still broken and won't be recorded to due to the 28 day rule.


    Ozsat I'd love to know why Tribune are incapable of fixing this SP?

    It should be fixed from Thursday - but I understand that Sky have stopped provided episode info - so it may just be a generic listing from now.

    The Top Gear problem with the Wednesday episode being reported by Tribune as a new episode in the series, rather than a repeat of the Sunday episode, seems to have been resolved this week. However this issue has happened in the past in previous series, so there seems to be some kind of problem with how Top Gear provide episode data on their series to Tribune.

    The problem is that if you are not Top Gear fans (and Tribune are not) then the schedule data provided by BBC which Tribune use, does not indicate that the Wednesday episode is a repeat from the preceeding Sunday.

    So the problem may come back.

    It's the same issue with all such repeats, HIGNFY etc.

    I suppose with quite a few BBC series I have been interested in the repeats are on a different channel and so are not caught by the Season Pass.

    But surely the BBC must use a different episode number for the repeat for Tivo to not treat it as a duplicate program to be ignored under the 28 day rule? I thought the BBC were meant to know what they were doing with this stuff and it was only people like Sky who don't have much of a clue.

    We're not talking rocket science here, exactly, are we? RT clearly marks next Saturday's show (BBC3) as "2/6", and Sunday's BBC2 showing and its repeat on Wednesday as "3/6". What could be simpler than that? Is it numbers that Tribune has problems with?

    Callsign: BBC4
    Provider: NTL
    Programme Name:Marcus Brigstocke's Trophy People
    Date/Time: Mondays 8:30pm
    Problem: Episode data wrong / missing

    Tivo says:
    Comedian Marcus Brigstocke invites himself to the National Bell Ringing Contest, held at Worcester Cathedral, to find out exactly what it takes to be a champion bell ringer.

    BBC says
    Model Flying: Marcus spends a weekend in the sunshine, wind and rain at the National British Model Flying Championship held at RAF Barkston Heath

    Each episode is shown at 3 different times, some are OK, some have unknown in the episode title so messing up data. The repeats Friday at 00:55 and 22:00 have the right data in jsut not the inital showing.

    Too late to do anything now, but if there are any model fliers out there this is a heads up.

    The schedules I get (and Tribune) have no mention of episode numbers.

    Radio Times often gets more info then 'other' companies for the BBC channels - I wonder why??

    I'm getting fed up of dealing with 'smart arse' questions/statements from people who do not know the system.

    If you have a problem with any schedules - then call TiVo CS.

    As I can not be bothered with the hassle of forwarding problems via my unofficial route - when people keep posting negative comments.

    There are no episode numbers provided - although RT does get them.

    If numbers or names are provided then that triggers the episode for Tribune.


    For the record - here is the official BBC1 listing for Sunday (4th Feb):

    8:00 Top Gear. (Digital Widescreen) Motoring magazine show with Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. Jeremy makes a public information film, James drives quickly and all three get thrown off a golf course in a riot of bad driving and appalling trousers. Simon Pegg is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. (T)


    and the official BBC2 listing for Wednesday (7th Feb):

    7:00 Top Gear. (Digital Widescreen) Motoring magazine, including road tests, news and features. (R) (T)



    Apear from Wednesday being a repeat (which could be 'any' repeat) - there is nothing to show the two are the same episode.

    Unless you know it is - or you get the 'extra' service the RT gets - then how do you know?


    EDIT: Digiguide seem to get the same info - there is nothing to link the (same) episodes together!
