Lately there's no episode information

I've noticed in the last few weeks that a lot of times there is no episode information for upcoming episodes.  I'm not talking shows that are 2 weeks away, but ones that are coming up in the next few days.  Like for instance Bones will have info for one or two and then the rest just say "Bones"  No episode name or info.  I really like to see if a rerun is coming up that I will enjoy seeing again.

This has been happening since I have had Uverse.  It can be a drag.

This is the thread about this from the THDVR forum:

http://forums.att.com/t5/Total-Home-DVR/Phase-3-Issue-Scheduled-recordings-episode-descriptions-not/...

 

It did start w/phase 3 download, before that every show in the Scheduled Recordings had a description, some might have been generic until closer to air time. 

 

I've found two workarounds, use the more showtimes button, find the same episode and usually will fill in the description there and when you go back it will be on your scheduled show.  Other workaround, go to the show in the Guide and bring up the description, when you go back to Scheduled Recordings, the description will be there.

[ Edited ]

Well, Friday this was finally fixed, all Scheduled Recordings will have descriptions just as they are in the Guide; which was standard operating procedure before phase 3 was downloaded.  Yeah!!!

 

Another thing I noticed is more than 4 actors listed in the descriptions. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Lately there's no episode information

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I'm a new subscriber (had Uverse 1 week) and this is my number one issue - I haven't seen ANY episode numbers on any programs.

 

With a free preview of HBO, Showtime, etc, it's nice to sample some of their shows.  But I'd want to watch the episodes in order, so being able to see if I'm starting with Episode 1.  Or if I've seen the 1st season and now need to start at the first episode of season 2, being able to find episode 14 is important.

I do see information about the episodes, just no episode numbers.

 

Based on the rest of the info from the thread, though of you that had episode info, lost it, and now have it back, does that info also include episode NUMBERS?  Or were they just never included to begin with?

Re: Lately there's no episode information

Admittedly, it's an extra step, but, with the episode name and the original air date, you can go to IMDB and get the episode number.  We've done that in the past to make sure we're getting the episodes in order - although the IMDB listing can give you the order without needing the number.

Re: Lately there's no episode information

Thanks for the info everyone.  While it's frustrating to know episode number was available on Time Warner Cable and Dish network, at least I know it being missing on UVerse is "normal".

 

The IMDB route is actually what I used the last 2 nights, so it's a good work-around Smiley Happy

Re: Lately there's no episode information

If you have an iPad, the the guide in the AT&T Uverse app has episode information.  It can also set up recordings, and be used as a remote.
