I have 2 PCs with digital terrestrial TV tuner cards running Windows 7 Media Center. The UK TV Guide appears to update normally, usually showing 15 days of guide listings but I've noticed that some series links aren't functioning correctly e.g. I set the current series of 'Later Live with Jools Holland' to record on BBC 2 Scotland, Tuesday 22:00, one channel only, new episodes, however the guide is classing new episodes as repeats & failing to record them. I work around the issue by manually selecting each new episode. The full length version of 'Later with Jools Holland' broadcast on the same channel on a Friday records normally as a series. A new series of 'Limmy's Show', first episode broadcast on BBC Scotland Monday 5th November 2012 doesn't even offer a 'Record Series' option & the firat episode was classed as a repeat, despite being billed as a new series on the BBC & other websites.
This behaviour is the same on both PCs, so before I start trying to repair or delete & reload the TV Guide, can anyone else confirm that they are experiencing similar issues as the downloadable guide would appear to be the issue here, rather than the Windows 7 PCs.

I have similar issues with other programs in the UK Guide.
The UK Guide seems to be carelessly maintained and I find it necessary to check the recording schedule for all series I am interested in. While it is not a frequent occurrence, marking new episodes as repeats occurs often enough to be annoying.

Thanks for your input, you've saved me from a long & ultimately pointless attempt to delete & reload the TV Guide.
Guess I'll have to spend the time saved manually adding series episodes, one by one.
