    Check your SP!

    My SP was gone!!! The two episodes I individually added were still there. Obviously something was screwy with the guide data.

    I think they fixed the Guide Data, so if you got your SP from the "phantom series" it's gone now.

    I was a bit puzzled to see that they're showing the first three episodes one after another, twice tonight.

    couple more votes and we'll be at 80%, hung at 75% for the whole time now.
    guess a number of people have a number of heroes to watch! :)

    YES,
    CHECK YOUR SP, MINE was completly unscheduled, even though I had setup an SP AND selected to record ALL THREE EPISODES

    Not really sure what happened, but it wouldn't have recorded otherwise.

    Maybe it is only going to be coming in MPEG2 or something, whichever format my HD TIVO DOESN'T receive?

    :-(

    The original problem seems to be that they had two separate series codes in the Guide Data, and which particular showings you got depended upon which particular episode you got your Season Pass from. They now seem to have corrected it, so if you got your Season Pass from one of the episodes that was under the wrong series code, you will not record any episodes.

    This should probably go under Season Pass Alerts...


    [edit] And I see now that it is! http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=345751

    Pretty amazing, I haven't watch it yet, but heard Sigourney from the other room. It sounds like the same text, from Sir ATB, but simply read by SW. That isn't right. Only SRA can get away with saying the things he does. Sleepy old britt. they should have changed the language for SW.

    Watched it (pole To pole), just behind realtime. Incredible! Had friends over for dinner and they were absolutely amazed too. THIS is what we all bought HDTVs for :)

    Not recording the remaining episodes tonight - when they re-broadcast later this week - but this show is an instant fave!

    Yeah - they were an instant hit! You could just see the blue one, saying to itself, "Women!", after all that preening was to no avail :)

    I watched all 3 parts this morning and THIS IS the reason we bought HD!! The scenes were breathtaking and amazing.

    What I would hope is Discovery.com will make this available in BlueRay (its currently available in standard DVD). I would add this to my BD library in a heartbeat.

    EDIT: Amazon.com has this series available on BlueRay and HD-DVD format. Scheduled for release on 4/24/07.

    The most impressive video I've seen since I got HD a year and a half ago.

    Hmmm... :confused:

    I only saw one episode in the guide for the 25th (From Pole to Pole). This coming Sunday (Apr 1) I see two listed: Ice Worlds and Deserts.

    Did I miss two episodes?

    I was already aware of the Season Pass issue, so I went into the guide to create manual recordings. So I should have been more clear that when I only "saw one episode", I meant in the guide itself and not the "To-Do List".

    Shoot! Can someone give me the two episode titles so I can look for them in repeats?

    Thank you!
