None that I have seen .... they typically give the Name of the show instead.

Only other thing you might be able to do is look up the info on the internet.

It would be nice addition, but it would have to be a Tribune addition, not a D* addition.

Tribune already has it...which is ALSO used by E*. Obviously D* WOULD need to add it for it to appear... ;) ;)

So your saying THAT info is already being supplied to D* and they are not putting in the description ?

I was always under the impression that the Tribune handled the Guide info for the Sat companies.
Your saying D* edits it and they already have the info being requested and purposely NOT putting it in there ?

Maybe D* doesn't pay for that info ?

it is highly possible all info is there but would need to be coded to be shown. i see ep# as a waste of space somewhat if defaulted into the main EPG, but would not oppose it after pressing INFO or something

Thtas the way it is with the Original Date is now.

Exactly; the same info is also on zap2it.com, which is Tribune's listing service as well.

This is one of the things I miss - in my recent swap over from Tivo, this benifits folks in three ways
1) The most useful - is quickly sorting out order of episodes that have been recorded - yes you can look it up on the internet but thats a whole seperate step/process etc.

2) Can be useful in sorting out season 2 vs season 3 when original air date is either missing or wonky

3) For distinguishing episodes for stuff without unique names

Personally, I don't Record stuff that isn't current (year wise, normally), however, when I record my shows, all are listed by Date Recorded, unless I change that option in the settings.
