    No, it's more like you saying to the speedo manufacturer that the speedo in your Fiat should have some added feature or read up to a higher speed. They may nod politely or they may ignore you completely. You're not their customer - Fiat is. If Fiat want a change they would take it seriously but not some random motorist.

    Likewise, Tribune's customer is Tivo not us.

    I never found listings error reports to Tivo Customer Services did any good myself.

    Three days of posting wrong episode details being broadcast for Captain Scarlet in the program listings thread seemed to work wonders though. So I would personally tend to believe that someone at Tribune BV does have a subscription to the thread. Even though they are not going to admit to this.

    Actually, I monitor the thread and report verified errors to them - that has been said before.

    Although some of them are just issues regarding the time taken to turn around the listings.

    And looked into it they did.

    I know nobody expressed an interest in the channel but, just in case, the listings are now available on tivo :up:

    :)

    I am a football fan - although not Liverpool. However, that doesn't stop me watching the other football channels.

    Does anyone (ozsat especially) know when we get the main BBC/ITV/C4/5 listings for the Christmas period ? I'm planning to return to the UK for the last 2 weeks of December (travelling on the 15th) and I'm just wondering whether I'll have had the full listings before then. It'd be nice to know I'm leaving my TiVo behind (in Germany) working it's butt off recording all the good stuff, coz I don't want to have to stay in and watch it :eek: :cool: :p

    Yes I know it's only October but I just booked my ferry ticket and the thought is fresh in my mind.

    Only about a week earlier than normal, I think. That's three weeks ahead instead of two.

    If the channel is dead keen to be listed and willing to provide the data then in the end Tribune seems to be willing to play ball.

    I would imagine that Tribune was also getting requests for data for this channel from other places such as the Windows MCE EPG, which may also have spurred them in to taking action on this one.
