    Is it just me or would the guide data be much improved if it had episode numbers in it? Funnily enough I can't tell by TX date or by episode name which is which.

    I'm thinking mainly of US imports which get repeated all over the place. I thought I'd watch Damages on BBC1 but I have no idea which episode is which.

    Who can we ask?

    It would be a very good idea & the information is available. The best alternative is to get Digiguide which does list all series episode numbers & much more. It's bargain at just 8 pounds per year. Try their 30-day free trial.

    Incidentally I just checked in Digiguide & the episode of 'Damages' broadcast last night was episode 3 & it will be repeated next Saturday evening on BBC 1 & BBC HD.

    Yeah, it would be a very good idea.

    There used to be some episode data in the guide, I'd assumed that it was just down to the guide provider's data.

    ISTR The Unit, Blade and 24 all having episode info in them some time ago (when Sky One was still on Cable)

    Used to use Digiguide yonks ago, I forgot about that. Might give it another blast.

    Thanks for the Damages info... I thought I had missed one. I have ep2 recorded so I'll have to source ep1 from elsewhere. Thankfully I know just the place...
