It is now 9pm on Tuesday and my guide data for BBC Two on Sunday still shows "To be announced." I thought guide data should be available two weeks in advance (though in reality I would expect at least one week). System Info shows that it connected this morning.

I keep getting shows not recorded/not going to be recorded because they are no longer in the guide when they clearly ARE.

So, what's gone wrong? How do I find out? Can somebody else please check their BBC2 data?
I don't think anything has gone wrong - I think you are just at the back end of the downloads.

If your call is just after the new data is available - then you will be nearly 24 hours ahead of somebody whose call was just before the new data was there.

My last call was about 2pm yesterday and all the data was there.

If anybody thinks they have missing guide data - then you need to pst which channel (and EPG number) it is - the time of the last connection - and the time and name of the last listing programme.

Always leave an hour for processing to take place if the last connection was within an hour - and then check the listings again.

And remember that BBC/ITV will not normally go beyond Friday of next week.

Tried to put in series link for F1 last night ... could see friday practice coverage but there was no info for saturday and sunday.

Also, the "series" seems to be "Australian GP" ... I think they did this once before and then the programs for each GP formed a separate series. I think it needs to be "Formula 1: Australian GP" to catch all GPs in the same series

If you look for "Live: Formula 1 Motor Racing" This will pick up all the live stuff so will do the live qualifying and the actual race.

If you want everything then I'd do a WishList for Title Keyword "Formula 1" with a category of "Sports.Motorsport" in case it moves channel.

If you just want the live events done on a WishList (for channel change purposes) then do a WishList for Title Keyword "Formula 1" and add another Title Keyword of "Live" then category "Sports.Motorsport"

Yes, got back last night and checked again and the guide data had arrived. Also, the Australian GP series link that I'd previously set up now contained "no upcoming showings" but a "Formula One: ..." series had appeared. So maybe they realized they were about to repeat the same mistake they made 2 or 3 years ago.

Next test will be to see if they make "Tour de France" into its own series or whether it is just a set of episodes from that well known series "Cycling: ..." ... until, I think the last couple of years TdF was its own series so a series link (or seasons pass as was) kicked in each year to record the 3 weeks worth of progs however, they changed it to "Cycling: ...." and you'd suddenly find a bunch of highlights of Tour of England/Ireland/wherever suddenly appearing whenver ITV4 decided to pad out its schedule with some cycling.

There actually seems to be at least two series called "Cycling", plus a "Live: Cycling" at the moment. I think I'm up to about 5 season passes, plus an auto-record wishlist to catch stuff, and that's just on the EuroSport channels.

Good to know. Is this June/July time?
