    Hi all,

    I've noticed recently that many shows in my TV Guide are showing as "To be announced". I get my guide info daily using WebEPG, from the TV Times website in the UK.

    I reckon there are a few ways around this problem.

    - Firstly, the import function could recognize the "To be announced" (or variations like "Film to be announced" and get the latest info from the xml file.

    - As an alternative, provide an option for the tv database to be overwritten by the xml file each time the import is done (more drastic, but probably an easier solution).

    Thanks for listening!
