Heh. The Guide data has enough errors already- and there's not a whole lot DIRECTV can do about it. It's something I'd like if it were accurate. Are other providers giving Ep. Numbers?
I'd be very happy with accurate OADs in the first Info button.
There's plenty they can do about it, and yes, the guide data I get via my Comcast cable connected TiVo Roamio is excellent, providing episode and season numbers. Either DIRECTV is too cheap to pay for the guide data package that includes that info, their programmers don't know how to incorporate it in the software or it's patent protected and DIRECTV doesn't want to pay the licensing. I have no idea, but it's utterly ridiculous that DIRECTV doesn't have this data.
To be clear, DIRECTV has the worst guide data of about 3-4 providers I've seen. I've been with DIRECTV for over 15 yrs and it's something that has always annoyed about the service.
P.S. Having those episode/season numbers might solve some of those errors.
