iPlayer (missing shows in search)

I've discovered a show which isn't searchable from the Tivo interface itself.
Witless is available on the BBC iPlayer (not sure if it's being broadcast or not), it's not possible to find the show via the Tivo search.

Is this because the BBC are failing to provide Tivo with information for shows which are iPlayer only?

I noticed this the other week, but assumed it would appear automatically when guide information was populated into Tivo.

Re: iPlayer (missing shows in search)

Is Witless a BBC3 show by any chance? If it is, then it's down to a technicality that BBC3 is no longer a linear channel as such. The other clue is that those BBC3 shows are on iPlayer with 6months availability rather than the usual 30days.

Not strictly speaking a catch-up service as such, in this scenario...

Re: iPlayer (missing shows in search)

I'm sure series 1 was shown on BBC1, oh well.
I still thought that Tivo was supposed to include iPlayer data though. I honestly don't even think to search for anything in iPlayer, it was only because it showed on the main page did I even see it.
Viewing figures for the old BBC 3 shows must be down if nobody 'finds' them Smiley Happy lol
