ROGERS FIX YOUR GUIDE!

My daughter just called me asking if the Bones episode on Global at 9:00 was a new one.  I have it set to record all first run episodes and it wasn't recording because the Rogers Guide does not say "New". Turns out it IS a new episode, the season 11 premier. it says so on Zap2it and Epguides. Fortunately, I can record it in HD on Global Vancouver at midnight.

 

Wake up Rogers! Maybe it's time you switched to a more reliable TV listings provider, and while you're at it, get one that provided season and episode numbers.

I agree...I just went through all my series and set them up on the original network and not the Canadian equivalent.

Managing TV series on the nextbox 3.0 is a pain. Need an online management area.

Thanks yllr, that's worth noting.  If this is consistently the case, for those who use the 'record new program only' setting, then it might make sense to set your series recording to the Yank version of the channel.  (Although I've heard it said, that for other reasons, it is often preferrable to choose to record on the Canadian channel if a program is playing on both.)

 

And not a PVR problem, but I've been irritated that I've missed about 5 programs in the last week because they were overtaken by live news coverage of the LATEST school shooting in the US, or by live speeches by the pres about said shooting.  I was able to get one of those shows back by finding a later airing of the show - but the others are gone bye-bye.

 

For this reason, I'll be setting duplicate recordings at different times of that one particular TV show.

@hansm0leman  I was hoping that if people would report specific guide errors in this thread, then perhaps a pattern would emerge.  At least Rogers would get some idea of the extent of the issues and might be able to use it as leverage with their information supplier.


The pattern I see from my example is that when there is a new episode on Global a day ahead of the same new episode on Fox, only the episode on Fox is flagged "new".  It's as if the flag gets stripped from the Canadian network listing.


OLDYELLR I think you may be right.  If that is the case it is unfortunate for those of us with the old 8642  HDPVR because of the limited number of recording you can do at one time.  I usually reord Bones on the Canadian (I'm patriotic Smiley Wink) channel because the next day when it is broadcast on Fox I have another show to record in that time slot.  I guess once the Jays finish playing it will be a bit easier to juggle things, but till then I'll have to be extra careful checking out if something is NEW even though the guide doesn't indicate that it is.

For me, the Ch 3 shows are all flagged as new. Don't know about 17 and 44 because they must be different channels for me, but you're right about Channel 8 at 12:05 AM, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.  I tried to find that on the originating network, but didn't see it "new" either.
