    Have some rather old (6 months+) programmes on my Sky+ box, and I have noticed that on occassions when I press i to see what the programme is about the i box does not match the title of the recording.

    This happened on the orginial 40gb and the upgraded 160 gB upgrade.

    Only noticed it on films, but then again that tends to be the only items that are kept for long periods.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Programs carry an ID number, however there are only a finite amount of these codes so after a while they are re-issued, older programs stored on SKY+ can then find themselves being linked to synopsis data for a totally different program:)

    ....... and sometimes it's just an error made by the broadcaster. ITV3 are famous for it.
