Tivo EPG, "New" programmes

I set my series links always to "New only", so why do I keep getting old stuff, for example it recorded "Sherlock" again, despite it being old stuff, then when you press "Info" it says "First broadcast on 9/8/2015" no it wasnt, it was old stuff.

Why cant the EPG be up to date?

Re: Tivo EPG, "New" programmes

Guide errors can be emailed "straight to the horses mouth" at tivoguideerrors@virginmedia.co.uk

 

As I understand it though - if the "first aired date" was actually wrong, this could be a re-edit of a previous showing (some broadcasters more prone to this than others) or a straight guide error (more of a rarity to be fair).

 

The tivo should only record one of each episode though, per 28day period I think?

If a series is repeated on another channel eg. original on Ch4 repeat on More4, then it will be marked and recorded as a new series.

Re: Tivo EPG, "New" programmes

I have a series link for 'Sherlock' and it didn't record - the OAD says 2014.

In fact it says 01/01/2014  -  which is correct  -  for the one on 10th Aug
