'30 days' duration screwup

Archived from groups: alt.video.ptv.tivo (More info?)

Wed night's episode of '30 days' on FX network wasn't recorded.
It seems they set the duration for an hour and one minute, so for
me it got tossed in favor of the higher priority Daily Show. With
all the problems Stewart's TDS has had with tivo scheduling, who
would have expected this turn-around? Ha! Anyway, this episode
"minimum wage" is on again Saturday, but is still listed as 61
minutes. Someone did use the correct time when they punched in
the length for the second episode "anti-aging", so that should
come out fine.

    I don't actually think the 61 minute duration is a "mistake" by the
    guide, lately many (notably "Lost" and "ER") have been slightly
    lengthened so they can shove more commercials at us.

    I do agree it is a "mistake" for them to do this, but it was intentional.

    If you create a Manual M-F Season Pass for the morning airing
    of The Daily Show you will no longer have conflicts with other programs
    which run long. The other morning shows have consistent durations.
    You might want to record TDS a minute longer to capture the Moment of Zen.

    Occasionally, there will be a Monday morning preemption for a movie,
    but since the Monday AM show is usually a repeat of the Friday morning
    show, that isn't a problem.

    It was not scheduled for 61 minutes - just 60 min. You must have added a
    minute of buffer time to the end. I scheduled the second airing of '30
    days' at 10:00 (central) on FX and had something else scheduled at 11:00 and
    both shows were recorded.

    So Ha! It was your own damn fault!

    Nope, not my fault, the program itself is claiming a duration of
    1:01, starts at 12:05 am on sat on FX. Both my recording options
    are set 'on time', no padding before or after.

    My guide says:
    'The Shield' from 11pm to 12:05am,
    '30 Days' from 12:05 to 1:06am,
    'Married... with children' from 1:06 to 1:30
    Here's a picture to prove it.

    So, how do you explain this?

    Looks like you would still have had a problem even if it was 55 minutes
    long.

    Well, that's tonights airing. Mine says the same thing. But the original
    back to back airings (8:00 & 9:00) on Wednesday were both only 60 minutes.
    My recording of a Wed. night airing shows that it started at 9:00 with a
    duration of 1:00. My next recording is the 10:00 local news.

    Thank you. I was beginning to think I shouldn't bother trying to
    warn others when someone screws up the guide data.

    How do you know the guide data was screwed up, and the show wasn't
    actually scheduled that way? In fact, I bet it was. It may be
    inconvenient as hell, but the networks are scheduling some shows that
    way now.

    Then you must be in some parallel universe, because the Tivo on-line
    guide confirms Jason's observations (though I don't see an episode on 6/23):

    As to Jason's letter to FX; I would redo your letter and put it in much
    simpler terms. Chances are that anybody who matters at FX will have no
    clue about Tivo scheduling and DVR's except in the most vague way. They
    have servants for that ;-). You could get lucky, but it's probably
    better to simplify it.

    Now today I get a mixture.
    The two episodes on Wed 6/29 and the one on Fri. 7/1 are now the only ones

    Well, it is a bit difficult to fathom the reasoning of the timing. Is
    it to foil DVR users? To promote lead in to other programs on their
    network? To shove in more commercials in that hour?

    I was thinking that you shouldn't get into the details of how you use
    your Tivo. Just say that you can only record one thing each time slot,
    and since their program is extending into an extra time slot it causes
    conflicts with later shows. Emphasize that if any such conflicts occur,
    the show that will be left unrecorded will be the one that extends into
    the extra time slot.

    Look, don't be an ass. You were wrong, you went off half-cocked and
    threw around accusations that were incorrect, whether or not you had
    incorrect information to base it on. Jason's complaint was valid, and
    we know what you were referring to when you said it was his own fault,
    and it wasn't that he didn't check the to do list, don't try to revise
    history. Next thing you're going to tell us is that you never said
    there were WMD's in Iraq in the first place and that you wanted to
    invade to "free the people" as the primary objective the whole time.

    You still have a major problem of not being able to see beyond the end
    of you nose. Other people have valid concerns that may not exactly
    match yours. I agree with Jason, these scheduling shenanigans that the
    networks are pulling are low and a pain in the ass. If it happened once
    or twice it would be no big deal, but a lot of shows are doing it
    regularly, and if no one complains than they'll do it more If it
    happens enough then even Sean's precious dual tuner DVR will start
    experiencing conflicts.

    Why should you be the only one? You're pissing and moaning about things
    I've never discussed.


    > You were wrong, you went off half-cocked and threw around accusations that
    > were incorrect,

    I suggested that he must have added padding to his SP because mine recorded
    as scheduled with a 60 min. duration. Is that what you are calling an
    accusation?


    > whether or not you had incorrect information to base it on. Jason's

    Why the hell do you think I'm trying to revise history? other than because
    it suits the arguements you like to create. All I did was state another
    reason for missing the expected recording that he could have prevented. The
    statement that it was his own fault is still just as valid even though there
    are other reasons to support it.

    That particular problem has what to do with the "30 Days" schedule?

    When and where did I ever say anything to give you that idea. I've never
    even addressed Jason's concern regarding networks and their new scheduling
    scheme.


    > I agree with Jason, these scheduling shenanigans that the networks are

    SFW?

    Since his concerns are valid, it's not his fault that he didn't get a
    recording that he expected because he didn't bother to check the To Do List
    on his Tivo. Oh, wait, that's right. His concern over scheduling is
    another issue entirely and one that I haven't addressed. So why the hell
    are you telling me about it as if I had disagreed with it?

    Stop pulling this stuff out of your ass and posting it as if it actually has
    any merit .

    Exactly, you accused him of causing the conflict by padding his
    recording. He did not cause the conflict, nor pad his recording, it was
    caused by exactly what he claimed caused it, a 1 minute overlap caused
    by intentional scheduling by the network. 'Fess, up, you were wrong to
    accuse him of causing it.

    I'm not saying that it isn't a good idea to check the To-do list, but
    scheduling conflicts like this cannot be solved by that and your
    suggestion solves nothing, it only allows you to be prepared for it, and
    make the decision as to which show to record (or go through some
    needlessly complex manual recording setup that you shouldn't have to do
    with a Tivo). Without the stupid 1 minute overlap there'd be no
    problem, and what exactly does that extra minute gain anybody but a
    headache?

    Here's a question back at ya, what exactly does checking the to-do list
    have to do with his complaint? Does it make it any less valid? Does it
    solve the problem? How about asking Jason, does checking the to-do list
    make him happy and solve the conflict problem? I bet we both know what
    the answer is.

    I was making a parallel, it's fairly obvious. GW's only stated
    intention for starting the Iraq war was the existence of WMD's. Later
    on, when that was shown to be false, he insisted that the *real* reason
    for the invasion was to stop human rights abuses, never mind what he
    said before. Can you see the similarities? Originally you said that
    the conflict was Jason's fault for padding it. Now that you're
    demonstratably wrong, you insist that you were *really* "suggesting"
    that he check his "to-do" list and that therefore it was still his own
    fault.

    No, actually you insisted it wasn't caused by that at all, but by
    Jason's own actions. You didn't give Jason the respect that he was due,
    nothing he said was incorrect, except maybe that he thought that the
    guide was mistaken, and not scheduled that way on purpose.

    I never said you disagreed with it, but you certainly denied it even
    existed, at least with regards to this show. Only after I posted the
    actual times and durations of the shows did you admit that Jason's
    observations were correct.

    You should learn to give people the benefit of the doubt when they're
    being reasonable, you jumped the gun at accusing Jason of being wrong
    about the scheduling of the show.

    Zardoz, I was not shown a conflict screen when I scheduled the
    6/15 recording. The conflict popped up when the network changed
    the show's length and caused a fake-conflict.

    Randy, save your breath. I doubt he's gonna admit his mistake.

    I'm sure you're right. Interesting that they changed the duration to
    1:01 rather than entering it that way in the first place. That only
    makes things that much tougher!

    Now the conflict wasn't real?

    Tell me what mistake I made?
    It's obvious that FX is playing with the schedule which resulted in your
    Tivo and my Tivo having different information. I never said yours was wrong
    or that mine was right. I just posted the info and stated that it's the
    info from my Tivo.
