Epg details for bbc radio freeview has dissapeared ( in over the air epg)


I get my epg data all from over the air epg ( ie I don't use any form of xmltv importer etc)
Just yesterday I noticed that the details for the epg of bbc radio 2,3,4,4extra ( aka 7), world service have all gone and are replaced with 2 hour blocks of "no data" Yet the channels are still there to listen too.

I was wondering if anyone can explain why this is happening?

Is it a local thing?? ( uk durris ) a temporary mistake??

( it's probably not a sage thing as media portal can't find any info for them either )

any help / (reasonable) explanation appreciated





It turns out that the radio channels are being removed between 5pm and 12 pm to make way for BBC alba - a gaelic language television station ( alba being gaelic for scotland and has dissapointingly nothing to do with jessica alba).

A retune was needed on the day of launch to fix the epg

< start rant >

Unfortunatly for BBC Albas audience ratings only 1.2% of scots can speak gaelic (and all gaelic speakers can speak english). Gaelic, or more accurately Scots gaelic, is a derrivative of Irish gaelic meaning it is not really a scots born language. However there is an upside. If you have ever wondered what it would sound like if a Klingon child mixed singing , talking and clearing his throat of phlem all at the same time then bbc alba iplayer can tell you.
Go raibh maith agat.
Oíche mhaith
( thats gaelic not klingon)
