-- Using Digiguide to set manual recordings via TiVo web (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=141584)

I have always believed it a good idea to have a free-standing EPG rather than a embedded one, especially when you want to control more than one recording device.

However, that is only one part of the equation, especially when wanting to use market forces to improve the quantity and accuracy of guide data.

I think that it is also a good idea to have an EPG which is compiled from multiple sources.

For example, you could add a film review to a source that has good genre classifications but only a film synopsis.

For example, you may find the last minute programme changes listings more accurate using a web source rather than a daily download.

I'm working on module at the moment which does this the other way around - it checks the To Do List against Digiguide and tells you if there's a possible error.

I remember you mentioned this in another thread, but I am still not sure exactly what you are checking - care to expand?
