Re: Tivo channel numbers

The TV Listings Guide on 'Anywhere' hasn't been updated  , though  - it's still showing the old numbers .  

< just tested and it seems to record the right programmes from the wrong(old) channel numbers , anyway > 

 

 

Thank you , though - I missed the original notice .

Which channels are wrong?

 

I've just had a look and Sky 1 HD, the Sky Sports HD channels and BT Sport HD channels are all on the correct numbers?

Re: Tivo channel numbers

It would have been nice to have received some sort of notification that the channel numbers have been changed - an email maybe!!!

 

It does seem that it's change for the sake of change.   Can anybody come up with a sensible reason?

 

I subscribe to DigiGuide and use it regularly to find programmes. This evening I wanted to watch something on Discovery History and pressed 222 which was the usual number.  When it didn't change the channel I eventually found that the number is now 262 - so I missed the beginning of the programme!!!!  

 

There are other sites which have listings for VirginMedia channels, but they are still unchanged - perhaps it would be a good idea for someone to notify these sites.   It can't be that difficult, can it?

All the TV platforms have to reorganise their EPG's from time to time. The latest one on VM has done several things. It grouped the BT Sports channels together (may have been a BT request), prioritised the Sky Sports HD channels at the top of the sports section (bringing it in line with Skys own platform) & created capacity for more channels in the entertainment section, which is now cleared up to channel 240.
