TiVo/V6 Programme Guide Issues

I have taken dozens of TV screen captures illustrating the ridiculous instances I've shown (below):

Surely there must be a way of avoiding this?!

Ah-Oh! These are .png files. I've tried posting jpegs but they don't work either! What format should I use?

You’ll have to explain what point you’re trying to make.

With Ernie_c on this one.

What issue are you trying to raise? Each pair of screen shots appear to match in the main.  Some small print details are different.  Is this connected with you other thread on guide issues?  If so, best to keep to the one thread.

Re: TiVo/V6 Programme Guide Issues

I posted the screenshots to highlight the daft issue in the programme guide information. For instance, take the first two screenshots; the first shows the text on the actual programming page. It ends with:

"... and natural sales patter to bring in the punter..."  

The ellipsis (three dots after "punter') invites the viewer to click for more information.

Click on 'info' for the following page. There you'll see the text ending with; 

"... and natural sales patter to bring in the punters."  

This time the ellipsis have been replaced by an 's' which completes the word and the sentence. 

So, my point is that, on the first page the three dots take up more space than an 's' and a full stop would take up! A simple change to their algorithm to accommodate for these anomalies would eliminate the need to click for more info!

It might seem like a silly complaint to make, but for me, it's a sloppy way of doing things!
