I asked the same question on here yesterday. Not just actors are missing, but dates of films, too. Let's hope we get some sort of answer that makes any sort of sense! :-D

Then I wonder if it's a further EPG limitation of the memory starved V+HD box - not enough space in RAM to hold the details.

Re: why has vm stopped putting detailed info about what actors are in films on all movie channels?

i do have a tivo box upstairs & did check after you asked me what box i had, & yes details are on there!!

but i hate the tivo box!!!! nowhere near as user friendly as the v+ box!!

so annoying that vm are not letting us with a v+ box have the same info as tivo!!!! they still take my money!!!!

Re: why has vm stopped putting detailed info about what actors are in films on all movie channels?

It's not just on films though. I'll give you a couple of examples.

124 CHRISTMAS GOLD: 14:55 Porridge: Programme Information: Sitcom set in Slade Prison where Norman Stanley Fletcher is serving a five year term for burglary.

128 DRAMA: 11:00 The Bill: Programme Information: Police drama series set in Sun Hill.

That programme information is about at useful as a chocolate kettle, as it doesn't give any specific episode info, like it used to on the V HD box. I used to be able to recognise all episodes of Only Fools and Horses on GOLD from the Programme Information, but when looking at all the episodes last Saturday, all the info had been re-written, so if was sometimes difficult to work out which episode it was.

It's like that old saying, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it', so why have you decided to fix something that was working fine?

Thanks.

Re: why has vm stopped putting detailed info about what actors are in films on all movie channels?

so agree with you!!! its most channels!!

but if you had a chocolate kettle @ least you could eat the chocolate!!

what vm has done is appalling to us loyal v+ box users!!

do you have a tivo box or have you looked @ 1??

i do not want or need more hours to save on the  box, when am i supposed to watch everything??!?! have enough trouble watching what i record as it is!?!?

i like the interactive section on the tivo box & i also have the option to record stuff onto dvd if i want to, cant do that on tivo!!

could go on & on re tivo, but i wont!!

The V+HD box is old!
They barely have enough RAM to store the programmes for 24 hrs, let alone all the additional info.

Virgin Media stopped supplying them with new contracts 4 years ago, and they're on the way out.

What is it you're not liking about the TiVo?

OK, so if it is a memory issue on the V+ box, what suddenly changed in the last two or three weeks that made them run out of it? What new info is on there that's using up the memory that used to be supplied to give us proper programme details?
