Default Shift of tennis from BBC Two to BBC One

Why does the BBC continue to shift tennis matches from BBC Two to BBC
One when particular games are being played, such as Murray v Fognini
tonight? Do they think tennis fans are too stupid to operate a remote
control successfully?

If anyone sets up a recording of the tennis - or Eastenders for that
matter - will they end up with the wrong programme recorded or do
programme codes handle that?

Channel changing was never built in to the record process. So it won't
record unless you set it from the EPG or 'i' button after the change
appears.

The Beeb have this strange attitude that important sports events must be
on BBC1 as it's the prime BBC channel. And viewers expect to find 'big'
things there. ********!



Everybody has to change channels, so it's a self defeating principle.

That sounds as if the iPlayer recording was an off-air recording rather than
being derived from the transmission master, so it caught a mid-programme
channel change.

I wish the BBC wouldn't do this channel-changing. Once a programme is
scheduled for a given channel, and the schedules have been published, it
should stay on that channel, even if it overruns. Better still, put all
programmes that are liable to overrun onto a channel of their own where they
can interrupt each other to their heart's content and leave the scheduled
programmes to be broadcast according to the published schedule. If a
programme has to be bumped, postpone it to a later date when it can be
scheduled again, but don't simply move it to another channel or delay it to
later the same day because that means that any PVR will be doomed not to
record what you want but instead get the over-running sport :-(

I don't know, but it makes watching via downloads absolutely
maddening. They should put one match on one channel and leave it
there for its duration.

We can rant all we want but it's very unlikely the BBC reads this.

And it's even less likely that even if they did read it, they would do
anything about it. As with so many things, the "suppliers" think they know
what the "consumers" want, and no amount of complaint from the "consumers"
will shift those firmly entrenched views :-)

We have to face the fact that broadcasters regard pre-recorded programmes as
disposable "fillers" that can be shifted around from one channel to another
or from one time-slot to another, at a moment's notice, to make way for
over-running live events.

I thought that as well, I thought this was what red button channels were
supposed to be for, instead they get used for ever repeating concerts and
silly bits of Dr who promos etc.
If you just listen to the sound all you tend to hear is the ball hitting
and grunting noises.

Well there was a big who ha on feedback about the stupidity of having
logging in systems on radio I player last week just so they can put up their
stupid suggestion list, ie people who downloaded this also listened to...

The chinless wonder was faffing about just repeating his pre rehearsed
words, like well once you log in you can turn this off, However if you did
not have to log in you would not have to turn it off, would you?
The other interesting thing I've noticed now is that certain stations who
have started to get in the new telephone systems now have to tell the caller
their number will be retained for 6 months by the bbc, but it will not be
used for anything other than contacting listeners, ie no outside entity will
be given access to it. I have heard this on BBC Solent, and a couple of
others, one then wonders what they do if you withhold the number, do they
decline to speak to you?
