    Over the past few days I have noticed if I add something in to my calendar then leave it a few hours it duplicates itself. Sometimes its two things named the same thing on the same day and other times its the day before or after I created the entry. Has anyone else noticed this or had this happen to them?

    The place where Apple designs stuff
    What's your setup like? How many macs/iPhones do you sync, etc?

    I've never ran into this problem personally.

    same problem

    Im experiencing exactly the same problem.

    It only happens if I add an entry on my iphone - then it appears 4-5 times in the cloud.

    Two iphones are linked to the same cloud.

    Any ideas?

    If you have an iPhone set to synch to MobileMe and also to a computer, it can cause this. Here is an Apple support link:


    Don't know if that is your problem or not, but it has happened to me a couple of times. Some of the setting are not intuitive to me, and I always need to go back to this to review. Good luck!

    Experiencing multiple calendar entries in Ical

    Hi,i am desperate to cure this problem,i have a 27" Imac connected to a time capsule through a BT hub,throughout the rest of the house i wirelessly use a Macbookpro connecting to the TC,both back up to the TC no problem and also an iphone4 all synced through MobileMe.
    I use Ical a lot and have encountered a most irritating problem where i am not just getting double or quadruple calendar entries but up to 80!!! appearing in the sidebar view on the ical page on both machines,i "think" it all stems from syncing the iphone4 which i have only had a month
    Also i have an idea that having checked boxes on the iphone sync page for contacts AND Icalendars has created this mess
    Desperate to try something i decided to restore my TC to factory thinking IT may have contributed to things but the problem remains!
    Both Imac AND MBP are struggling to open Ical and generate "slow running script errors " whilst loading
    Any ideas please?
