I have a timer set for
Baptiste 'Vertrouwen' ABC HD, 8:30pm, Fri, 3 Jul 2020
on our in-use T4 (firmware 20200405).

So there doesn't seem to be a systematic problem with the show.

It is also scheduled on my U4 but not on the T2 which is expected as it is not set to record on the T2, a shortcoming on my part that has now been fixed. Another seniors moment,

Very odd; one of my T2 and the U4 were displaying the login; the other T2s were not.

Apparently only impacts on some types of PVRs; no indication of issues with my Toppys.

Thanks for the confirmation about it being a new series.

The good news is that for some reason I had not deleted 02.01 from my U4 so one less thing for me to worry about.

Good to hear it is not lost. If you delete a recording, unless there is some setting in the U4 modified to quickly remove it from trash, it can always be recovered from the trash directory for quite some period of time. The second series of the program can also be found at SBS On Demand, where I see that the only record of Series 1 (screened as recently as November last year) is a reference to there having been four episodes where in fact there were six.

IceTV is still presenting this latest series as a repeat, and like you, I do not think that it is. It premiered in the UK in March this year. I guess someone at IceTV will pick up on this post sooner or later and change it, but anything to do with SBS program scheduling must be a challenge for them given SBS's capricious retitling of series.

If the recording is deleted via ftp then it is not transferred to trash; not sure if it is picked up by lost+found that is part of Linux, but I am doubtful. Just checked and lost+found is empty as I expected.

IceTV EPG Content / Tony Robinson's World By Rail - South America

I suspect this program (SBS last night) was not a repeat. [Ignoring the confusing caused by SBS renaming the program - the correct title appears to be "Around the World by Train" (with Tony Robinson).] That episode was the second in series 2. I got really confused since the first episode in both series 1 (1999) and 2 (2020) is Europe, so I deleted the episode shown the previous week as I thought I had already seen it.

Would it be possible to include the season and episode number in future. I was confused since imbd only has series one listed (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11609526/), however I managed to find details of series 2 (https://www.radiotimes.com/tv-programme/e/hpwmdh/around-the-world-by-train-with-tony-robinson-episode-guide/).

Program name does not match the content which is a Great British Railway Journey. Noticed it earlier in the week but failed to report it. SBS is doing this with monotonous regularity lately. Often with railway related programs.

As the program is filmed in Ireland and set in London I doubt that it is properly categorized as American.

I noticed this last night but forgot to report it - it was episode details of the following program, Call the Midwife.

Removing the 2 duplicate LCNs seemed to remedy the problem. Not sure what changed recently to cause this to happen.

This is a really weird one.  Last night one of my 2400s started spontaneously rebooting, then a 7100+ started doing the same thing. It was the reboot process like previously associated with too much EPG data before I culled the services being downloaded. I gave up trying to fix it and went to bed. This morning both 2400 and both 7100+ were doing it. Disabling Ice TV stopped the reboot cycle.

The odd thing is that the 5300, which is on a different IceTV account did not appear to do this. Did anything change last night at the server end?

The first account currently has 26 channels enabled and the second account has 27 channels enabled which does not help. However the 5300 has very few timers which may be significant.

Edit: Disabling IceTV seemed to stop the rebooting. I have disabled duplicate LCN 2 and 7 (9 previously disabled). Will report progress.

My recollection is that the procedure suggested by Peter will solve the problem; disable and then re-enable IceTV has done the trick for me in the past.

Not just Railway Journeys. They get titles wrong and quite frequently even programs wrong. ....

There one instance when it is not the fault of SBS, rather the makers of the program: we started out with "Chris Tarrant: Extreme Railways" and it eventually became "Chris Tarrant: Extreme Railway Journeys". SBS seems to exclude the "Chris Tarrant" but if memory serves me correctly, 7Two includes it. Even more confusing is that they have substantially overlapping episodes at their disposal.

The is an inconsistency on the guide data for Great Indian Railway Journeys, SBS HD Saturday 2 May 2020. The program description is:
Kiev To Odessa
With his Bradshaw's 1913 Continental Railway Guide in hand, Michael Portillo ventures east .....

SBS seems to get confused as to which "@@@ Railway Journeys" is being shown - the content is usually more accurate than the Guide entry.
