Default Vuzu Amp EPG resulting in failed recordings

So the EPG problem has moved from 101 to 103. Second failed recording due to EPG, start time changed from 17:30 to 17:28

And my recordings as well.... the issue has been flogged to death for months now - not expecting this to ever change anymore.

It has to, I'm sure MC must understand that. What concerns some of us is if it will just be improved software that they think we can manage with - no, the EPG has to become more stable.

I've escalated this to senior people within M-Net to take corrective action. Apologies for this experience.

@Doug_Dread - I sincerely hope you don't have a SERIAL recording, sounds rather ominous. But we are hoping to have your SERIES recording less impacted.

I do serial recording of series; works for me.

I can assure you this is raised at the highest level within M-Net and receiving the most urgent attention.

Let me just start off by saying that obviously this problem lies with M-Net and not MC (and most definitely MoM is not to blame) - but despite me giving almost 6 hours notice my recordings still failed tonight due to these 1 minute EPG issues.

I'm sorry to say but this is no longer what I expect from a Premium service. It is not worth anywhere near R900 a month and most certainly at the very least we should not be charged the additional Access fees until these EPG issues and the Explora series recording issues have been resolved.

I see no benefit or value at the moment in terms of being able to record on my Explora. Every night when I get home I have the same issues and failed recordings and I see no end in sight. These EPG issues should be something that is resolved for once and for all within a day (or someone should be fired) - not months and months of constantly reporting the same issues. I am a very unhappy customer at the moment.
