    I noticed the Tour De France is finally in the schedule on the iphone app. However, in the guide on my HR20-700, it says "To Be Announced". It's been my experience that if I schedule something from my iphone that doesn't match up on my HR20, it will fail to schedule the recording. Indeed that is the case here too. How can I schedule the Tour to record? Note that it doesn't occur at the same time every day.

    My guess is give it another day. The guide on the HR20 will likely show it by then giving you something to set a series link on.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Any hope for HD broadcast coverage this year?

    Thanks Tom. I've been waiting patiently for weeks to be able to schedule this to make sure I don't miss it... guess I'm starting to get impatient!

    I read somewhere that it was going to be HD this year, but I can't remember where so as far as I'm concerned this is purely conjecture. I reckon we won't know until it actually airs.

    Some of the other races this year have been in HD on Versus so I'd think the odds are good the TdF will be.

    The guide isn't showing it as HD. :(
