V6 EPG an hour out.

I've noticed that after the weekend that the clocks change, the timings for programmes appear to be an hour out eg the parent and timeshift channels are showing the same programme!

I've never known this to be done before, is this a new way of dealing with the clocks changing (I know it's caused recording issues in the past)?

Re: V6 EPG an hour out.

Looks Ok to me on a quick check. Is there a particular channel you see this on?

No problems with the EPG's on our boxes.

I did a reboot and it seems to have corrected itself, i'll let you know if it reoccurs SP.

The only one that I can see for now is Jeremy Vine from 1/4/19. It says it starts at 10:15, unless Channel 5 have moved it forward an hour from this date

Re: V6 EPG an hour out.

Once the clocks go forward at the weekend, the EPG timings would be correct.

They should be correct now, and clearly are for most channels. (e.g "News at Ten" showing at 10pm)

For Forces TV, I believe it's an international channel, so I wonder whether they remain on GMT all year round, like BBC World Service does.

I thought it was something that Tribune (or whatever they're called now) had done to get ready for the clocks changing!

Didn't know that Forces TV was an international channel; they've started showing some old British comedies.

Re: V6 EPG an hour out.

All the listings look ok now so I guess they've updated.

Yep, even Channel 5 now looks to be correct.

Re: V6 EPG an hour out.

It's happened again. Programmes on 201 for Reality +1 are an hour out and the same as the parent channel on 148.

Re: V6 EPG an hour out.

You can report this kind of thing to the TiVo guide errors address. They don’t reply but do fix stuff
