Percussim: Tennis took priority as two British women got through, as I understand it. Red Bee Media (who run playout for the BBC) don't always get the EPG data updated, or some boxes don't update if the programme ID doesn't change.

On other platforms, interactive streams don't even appear in the guide or provide now/next information. Me, I like being able to record the F1 Forum.

what's wrong with 301 lately. snooker repeats the same frame over and over. Whoever's idea that was is hurting snooker's tv ratings. We dont want to watch the same frame repeat constantly a dozen times in a row or howevermany it is. It was on in the background and i counted to 4 times in a row same frame before turning off the telly. Same with football forums, its all unbearable. Lol unbelievable.

just been watching channel 301 for the last 20 minutes and all there is shown is a dirty white van, with cycles on the back, driving along the roads down in Cornwall. No comentary or nothing. This is riviting TV at its best!
Who ever organized this show needs to get out more!
All those people lining the road to watch a dirty white van pass by must have nothing better to do!!

If you want to commit a crime in Cornwall today is the day to do it. Why? Because all the Cornwell police seem to be following this dirty white van around the roads. How much is this costing us in wages andover-time I wonder?

As I write, there's a Euro 2012 football match on 301, with the option to silence the commentary while retaining the ambient sound. What a great facility that is. I've noticed that 301 is the only Freeview channel where there's a 'multi audio' choice in the TV's options menu, although most of the time the second option labelled ?EURoeund?EUR? (presumably for under-something) produces only silence. Is 301 technically unique in being able to offer this facility or could the others do so also, and why is it not used more, even on that channel. It would be great to be able to choose whether we want someone twittering on all the time.
