I don't suppose anybody cares, but the Beeb broke the series link on Come Dancing.
Yes, 1977. Since January we have had the full series from 1979 (7 programmes), the 1974 grand final, and now the 1977 series is a bit odd because we've had programmes 1 & 2, and 3 is on tonight... but next week the final is scheduled (programme 7). It has been suggested that the library might be incomplete, having been recovered from third-party off-air recordings.Are you sure the Come Dancing are from the same series?
I run two HDR Fox T2s, one with AR on and one off. I record most stuff on both boxes, gives me two chances of getting the recordings. Sometimes I record the repeat on the second box, sometimes I do AR on HD and non AR on SD.I do care that series link keeps getting broken on various series by multiple broadcasters. I've already given up on AR because it doesn't work properly (for me) on the minor channels.
That's pretty much what I asserted at the beginning of this "journey":but if AR fails and I explain why they look at me blankly and say "why does it have to be so complicated?".
it is much easier for non-techies to understand that a recording has failed because a programme was broadcast at the wrong time, than to try to explain that a programme broadcast at the right time has failed to record because of a cock-up by the broadcasters.
That's what usually happens. I bring up something and the topic drifts. Sorry!However, this isn't about AR, it's about series linking.
Even less to care about:I don't suppose anybody cares, but the Beeb broke the series link on Come Dancing.
I thought I'd rescanned (my TV, I'm fed up rescanning Humaxes for minor changes and having to re-enter all the schedules) and saw the Together TV+1 problem. Began to think I was loosing my marbles! Glad to see it isn't just me. Something tells me "they" couldn't organise one in a brewery.Incompetence rules!
Shirley that's yellow with diced carrot..Vomit?
Are you describing Ballas's dress?Shirley that's yellow with diced carrot..
That sort of went over my head as I don't watch Strictly either. Having realised that there is a Shirley Ballas I get the reference.Are you describing Ballas's dress?
They appear to have fixed the EPG as of 16:27 this afternoon, according to my monitoring. Perhaps they read the forum.saw the Together TV+1 problem. Began to think I was loosing my marbles! Glad to see it isn't just me. Something tells me "they" couldn't organise one in a brewery.
There are various +1 and other 2-3 hour channels that seem to be pointless - LCN hogging? What is the point of CBS Reality and RealityXtra? Who wants to watch Judge Judy at all,. But all day! More LCN hogging?. I cannot envisage anyone watching this an hour after the event. It still remains to be seen what the actual point any of this is.
Radio 2 used to be perfect for that. Patronising old duffers endlessly playing a very limited playlist of songs from their grandfathers era would have you nodding off in minutes but sadly now they just have patronising middle aged numpties endlessly playing a very limited playlist of songs from their fathers era that raises your blood pressure in minutes.I try to banish negative thoughts, and cover up the racket of others, by using the radio or other audio. Problem is, I can't really find anything worth listening to. Do I want news, classical music or rock? Any audio books, drama or comedy I've heard umpteen times before. I could always watch an old film. The Wooden Horse usually sends me to sleep - for an hour.
As there is so much televisual choice overnight I have been known to put Quest on when none of the above works. It's no wonder my remotes fail with all the channel hopping I do. Trying to ignore BSL interpreters on other channels, if the programme itself is interesting, can be amusing. The various overnight shopping scams are not.
