Biggest Loser - Episode Titles Repeated
« on: January 31, 2009, 08:21:09 PM »
The series record the wife set up for Biggest Loser didn't pick up Tuesday's episode so I got the usual "why not >:(?" from her. A quick look showd that the episode title for Tuesday is the same as for Sunday, so Vista Media Centre didn't schedule the recording as it was considered a re-run.

Can we please have the episode titles correct - or not there if they are unknown - so the series record won't get confused?

Thanks

The titles should all be the same!?  If they aren't, then we would have to set series recordings for each title (for Wiz/Toppy/interactive compatible units).  Can't your media centre use some other criteria for repeat, like episode sub-title or episode number?

I'm referring to the episode name or title, not the name of the show. The show is called "The Biggest Loser" and this should be the same for every episode, but there is also an episode title. In this case Sunday's is "2009 Series", Monday's is "2009 Series - First Weigh-In" and Tuesdays is "2009 Series" - the same as Sunday's episode, so it is picked up as a repeat as "The Biggest Loser" "2009 Series" was recorded on Sunday already.

Glen, I assume you are using VMC?

I just setup a series record (1st run only) on my VMC box just to test this and it looks to me like whatever issue you are having is local to either your location (unlikely) or your Media Center.

Anyhoo, as you've prolly guessed by now mine seems to work just fine and is showing it will record on every night of this week. Not that helpful I know but shows there is no "current" issue with the Ice guide data.

Perhaps try deleting your series recording and re-creating it?

PS, they all seem to have unique epsode subtitles now.

I had the same problem here, I didn't notice what was different at the time.
It didn't show up for series recording.
