They've even got a info banner square on it already. I saw it earlier, after your initial post.

The new ordering means all the UKTV channels with a +1 and HD varient have the SD first, then +1 and HD furthest down. It's logical given the 'press blue' option. The only exception will be Good Food, as they are currently in that order already but they are switching the HD and +1, rolls eyes!

I'm wondering if this will work itself out if more channels do SD -> HD switch meaning the HD channels getting bumped up the guide now, won't matter later.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

According to the V6 EPG, the old BT Sport 4KUHD channel on 555 becomes Channel 4 from 2pm on 23/12/18!?

I wonder if this is an error, as I can't see Channel 4 wanting to move down the EPG. Also, this would be during the 'Christmas freeze', where non essential changes aren't carried out in case something goes wrong during the Christmas period when most staff will be on holiday.

It appears to be duplicated, rather than moved - the same programmes are still on 104.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

IMHO It’s simply an error in the Guide data. Somebody has wrongly loaded Ch4 data into the 555 slot.

Another indicator that Channel 4 won't be moving to 555 is because this is the sports genre.

Perhaps it's a test using dummy data as opposed to an error and a new sports channel is starting on 555? Eleven Sports??

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

It was an error in the Guide data - now fixed. No Channel 4 data on channel 555 any more.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

A last-minute BBC News special has been announced for Wednesday evening on BBC One.

Quote:
There will be the result and reaction to the confidence vote in Theresa May. As the Press Association reports, the programme, titled May Leadership Challenge, will be hosted by Andrew Neil. It will air from 7.30pm until 9pm. The One Show, which is scheduled from 7pm to 8pm, will end early and the previously scheduled 8pm broadcast of Shop Well for Less will be replaced by the news programme.

And another change. They'd previously said the 8-9pm program was dropped, it's currently showing as going out 7.30-8.30pm

I know a dynamic EPG is totally impractical and this sort of stuff doesn't happen very often, the reverse EPG will pick up iPlayer etc etc, but I dare say whatever mess BBC1 makes of tonight will cause a few messed-up recordings and whinges on the VM Forum. Oh the joys.

Oh whoopee. Something that could be announced in a 30 second newsflash extended into a whole mind numbing evening of total nonsense.

GoT catchup here we come.
