With the recent Wimbledon tennis coverage and Andy Murray actually winning :), the Beeb were constantly moving programs that were scheduled to be shown on BBC1 and swapping them with the tennis on BBC2. Also, last nights The Apprentice: The Final Five was moved from 9pm to 10:30pm and a revised repeat about the man himself was moved forward to 9pm.
Anyway, I happened to have The Apprentice scheduled to record, but got the Champ instead. What can be done to stop this from happening? As a convert from Media Center, I know its guide is set up to use the in-band data for the now & next program and the downloaded for the rest up to 2 weeks ahead, thus resolving last minute schedule changes, as long as the broadcaster update the in-band data.
I'm using mc2xml to populate my guide, so I was wondering if MePo can use the in-band data in the same way as Media Center?

    OK- thanks. Fingers crossed it'll make it's way into the new version.

    Yeah apparently you have to have a JIRA login to see issues. We are investigating if JIRA can be made public to view.
