Fortunately we managed to catch up with most of the shows that didn't record through on demand, repeats and catch up services after we re-connected to the network on our return.

Thanks, well worth knowing should I win the lottery and be able to afford to be away for longer than 2 weeks😄

Unlike the old Liberate platform boxes (V boxes & V+) that pulled their EPG from the linear TV system, the TiVO & V6 use the internet. TiVO has an inbuilt modem, V6 does not so uses your Hub. No Hub no EPG updates, simples.

Re: VM EPG

There seems to be a issue with BBC 1 , 2 and 4 on the EPG as it only goes up to Sunday the 29th of July while ITV , C4 and C5 go up to the 3rd of August.

This is normal for the BBC. I have sometimes seen the BBC4 schedule only available for 4 days ahead.

Re: VM EPG

Where does the blame lie as surely it can't be that hard to update the EPG on a daily basis.
