No Series Listings

Post by nzz20v » Sat Aug 10, 2019 3:27 pm

Hi, Gardening Australia aired on friday @ 8pm AEST only gets maybe one correct episode listing in 20

e.g. episode title always says Jan 1, 1980 which is obviously the original air date when the program started

its real difficult to define the current episode when all 30 episodes all have the same name and they are always playing old repeats during the wek

Model: HDHR4-2DT
Device ID: 12305B8F
Firmware: 20190715beta1

I have opened a case with the guide provider asking for the episode numbers and titles to be added to the data. ABC does list them on their site so I don't think it will be a problem.

Per the guide provider, ABC does not provide them with episode numbers/names for Gardening Australia so they are not able to add it to the data.

You could contact the people who produce the show and ask them to officially designate season and episode numbers and work with ABC to get that information disseminated to the various guide listing providers that operate in Australia.

It's not uncommon for public broadcast shows like this to not have data available. They're usually operating with minimal staff on a minimal budget, and ancillary things like preparing data for guide listings falls way down the list of priorities compared to actually making the show itself.
