    Duplicate data in guide

    For the last couple of days I've been getting duplicated programme data showing up an hour early in the guide for TV1 and TV2 (the +1 channels seem to be OK); e.g., for TV2 tonight I have
    ...
    8:30 Bride And Prejudice UK
    8:35 Bad Teen To Ballroom ...
    9:35 Bad Teen To Ballroom ...
    10:05 Police Ten 7
    10:30 The Last Ship

    10:35 Two And A Half Men
    11:05 Police Ten 7
    11:20 The Walking Dead
    11:30 The Last Ship

    The lines in red are errors.

    I've had my TiVo for 5 or so days and for the most part I'm impressed. NOT, however impressed by the TV Guide.
    The guide was the main reason I got an upgraded machine. Now I've missed the whole first episode of a new season of a favourite program.
    If you need help with data entry, let me know because I am more than happy to volunteer.

    Also, NOT impressed that "fast forward to end/beginning" has been removed as an option. I can't imagine who thought that was a great idea.
    Now it takes ages to scroll through areas I just don't need to watch.

    It should come right. We have had ours operating after the upgrade for nearly a year now. I can't say that I am anything but impressed. Its been working well without any issues, these issues this week are probably the worst I have experienced. The volunteers do a good job.

    Well the same problem seems to be showing up on other channels as of today, but sometimes only a few minutes out, instead of an hour (so probably not DST related -- e.g., Bravo+1 has one show scheduled at 11:28, another at 11:30, the first again at 11:33 and the second again at 11:35. Another question why I'm even seeing Bravo in the listing, since I thought I had it turned off in the Channel List...oh well)

    To get fast forward to end, use FF >> (so it is playing FFx1, FFx2 or FFx3) then the skip >| button while fast forwarding.
    To get fast forward to beginning, use Rew << (so it is playing Rewx2, Rewx2 or Rewx3) then the skip >| button while rewinding.
    As you have probably noticed if you are just playing at normal speed, the skip >| button will jump forward 30 seconds. Which some people find useful if they are watching commercial television (previously recorded or on delay).
    I found it didn't take me long to adjust to pressing FF or Rew first before Skip if I wanted to skip-to-end.

    If you happen to be in Australia and are interested in helping with guide data, please let me know what geographical area you are in.
    But that seems a long shot given the forum we are in, sorry but I can't help with NZ guide data.

    I should be easy enough to set it back to the old functionality. It's just a single byte changed in the tivoapp program...
