Repeats showing as NEW on Tivo

I have noticed that certain programs marked as new on Tivo are in fact repeats.  I have Tivo set up for new only and keep getting old programs recorded. Anyone know what is happening?

 

Regards,

The latest one is Oxford Street Revealed on BBC1. It is being recorded as new every day but I saw these last year.

There have been others but I cannot remember them at the moment.

Also Subs Bench and Subs Bench extra on Made in Bristol  (channel 159).  Can someone remind us what the email address to report these issues to is?  I'm sure there used to be one.

Re: Repeats showing as NEW on Tivo

Oxford Street Revealed is a re-edit rather than a repeat so is technically new

Re: Repeats showing as NEW on Tivo

I simply looked for it on the BBC site and BBC store. Not posting link to store here as not sure on rules about that, but the ones on air now are called "series 2 reversions" on the BBC iPlayer and have a 30 minute runtime compared to the ones on BBC Store which have a 45 minute runtime.

You'll probably find the original run contained content about xmas given it aired in December so these bits may have been edited out.

Happens with Traffic Cops too. UKTV often get an "extended cut" when it airs there

Re: Repeats showing as NEW on Tivo

Thanks, it would be helpful if Tivo gave an option to ignore revisions like these.

 

Cheers.
