Are your series links not set to 'new only'? This would stop that from happening. .

Re: Two successive broken series links

The programmes don't match the actual content. New Arrow still displays for lunchtime on the V6.

Oh, I see! Sounds like Sky made a last minute programme change.

It's a mess. The SD schedule is ok.

Re: Two successive broken series links

In the Coming Soon thread it's been stated that whenever VM change the frequency of their channels, that the series links have to be added again.

I've not come across this before; hopefully SP will see this and let us know.

Personally, Iíve never had to redo a series link for any reason so Iím not sure thatís true.
The case being discussed here, I believe, was simply a metadata error. I saw the early broadcasts being scheduled by my series links and didnít believe they could be true. I changed the recording times manually to the correct scheduled time.

Re: Two successive broken series links

Seems to have been more of an EPG glitch. Yesterday(Monday) morning W HD and W+1 were out of step with W (SD). Same is true for Thursday coming up. No way would new episodes of "Arrow" and "SEAL Team" be first shown during the day. I doubt they are pre-watershed shows anyway.

Yes, seeing Arrow and Seal team scheduled early doors was exactly why I doubted and rescheduled.

No, that isn't correct. I think what you are referring to is this, which seems a lot more plausible.

Thanks for that, I was indeed getting mixed up
