    My one pass is not picking up next week's episode of Vikings, but there is a show called Vikings! (added exclamation point) in that timeslot with the correct episode title "All His Angels" but no description.

    I think the next week's Vikings is a repeat. Vikings! is a documentary, 10-part series. Sounds interesting so I set up a 1P.

    Next week's episode is not a repeat. The TiVo data is misidentifying the program. History Channel's schedule shows "All His Angels" as S04E15 of Vikings.

    Interesting. Who did you report it to? This is a Rovi guide issue.

    I checked history.com, and the schedule shows...
    8pm Vikings S4E14 In the Uncertain Hour Before Morning [repeat]
    9pm Vikings S4E15 All His Anglels [new]
    10pm Vikings S4E15 All His Anglels
    11 pm S4E13 Vikings Two Journeys [repeat]

    The TiVo Guide replaces the two S4E15 airings with Vikings!. Correct episode title, but wrong series title and episode description. To be safe, I'll think I'll set up a manual recording.

    I submitted it as a lineup issue.

    Report a Lineup Issue

    Part of the form asks what you're seeing in the guide at a particular time and what should actually be there. There's a space for additional comments in which I added the explanation of what, exactly, is going on. You could call them, too.

    This isn't the first time I've seen Rovi data that confuses one program with another that has a similar name. I have a wishlist for "Sisters" with the category "Movies" and actor "Tina Fey". A couple of weeks ago it recorded "Sisters", but the one staring Chloƫ Sevigny.

    Yup, fixed on my box. I never bothered setting up a manual recording, hoping it'd be fixed. S4E16, W 1/4 is correct too.

    But 1/11 is messed up and listed as S1E1 at the moment.

    :mad: If this crap keeps up, I'm going to sell my TiVo and get a FIOS box. At least they'll have good guide data. They use Gracenote.

    Vikings 1/11 airing has been updated to have the correct season and episode number, but still does not show up when exploring the program from the season pass, suggesting this episode still has a different show identifier.

    For me as well, but go visit your OnePass and explore the show... I don't think you'll find that episode in the Upcoming Episodes list. It seems to have a different show ID

    Ah... Interesting. Mine must have updated just recently. All I had in there previously was airings of the "Crossing" episode. Everything has been corrected.

    Currently the 2/1 episode, 'The Reckoning' S04E20 is listed under the show "Vikings!" so won't record with the Vikings OnePass. Perhaps it will get corrected before it airs but I wouldn't bet on it.

    I'm on the phone with them now. This will make the 11th case opened in the last 2 months.

    Wow, Rovi really knows how to FUBAR entire stations. They messed up History Channel with SIX/Six and Vikings/Vikings!. They also consistently screw up Comedy Central with The Daily Show. They're screwing up SyFy with The Magicians and The Expanse.

    I think the only resort that might get resolution of their consistent issues is by publicly shaming (Twitter, FaceBook, etc).
