    Never happended to me but it has been reported by others.
    Series link data is bascially enterpreted/sorted/processed by the SKY+ with a code number for each program, there are only a finite amount of numbers that can be allocated and eventually they are recycled. Obvious example of this is for a long term stored program whose synopsis changes and no longer bears any relation to the actual recording.
    Given that there dozens of broadcasters some with more than 1 channel it is not surprising that EPG and series link data throws up some unforessen events. Perhaps more often than not they are related to certain broadcasters using series links which is why only some users have seen this situation occur.
