Slightly different EPG problem to what has been posted recently.

Everything works fin on my Thomson box except for having gaps in the TV guide.

These are random, affect different channels at different times, and change when the guide updates.

This is causing programs to fail to record if they are set, then end up in one of the gaps.

I really don't want to factory reset and lose all recordings again, did this a while back for another problem.

I have rescanned channels but have seen no change.

Should have added to post above, I'm on the 8 day guide so it's not being on the extended on that's the problem

Seems no one can help Angie or myself, or maybe someone who can just hasn't seen our posts as they are over a month old.

So lets try again.

Mines a Thomson box, can't remember model (not sure what Angie has).

Both have same problem, gaps in schedules.

This makes setting programs in advance a pain, trying over and over again until the program appears, and even worse mean series being recorded fail to set the next episode if it's in a scheduling black hole (luckily we can set most things that don't appear on the SKY+ box, but there are times we need to record more than 2 things at once, or the SKY+ gets clogged up with 'er indoors Disney movies)

Mine has had aerial taken out & channels rescanned, it's on 8 day EPG, has no top up card in it, and has been powered off numerous times.

As the disk is over 50% full I don't want to completely reformat the whole thing.
