    I recently purchased a Sony KD32DX40 iDTV. I'm very happy with it, but the Electronic Program Guide (EPG) only shows programs up to 1 hr ahead - 2 if I'm lucky.

    How does this information get updated and why doesn't show info for the next 24 hrs? As I have a Sony VCR, recording TV prgrams from the EPG is simple as it uses the Smartlink, but it's usless like this.

    I've got Sky also, and they show listings days in advance.

    Thanks.

    Just spoke to Sony about this and they say as you did that it's an issue with the BBC. It's being worked on and they hope that up to 7 days listings will be available soon.
