Previous SP stopped working, now Can't Schedule a Season Pass

Believe me, I searched. All the other "hits" were 2-3 years old.

I previously had a season pass set up to record the nightly news.

D/FW area; Channel 508; "News 8 at 5" is the title.

A couple of weeks ago, the SP just stopped recording.
Bringing up the SP says no future showings.

So I figured, OK, they just changed the name or something, so I deleted the Season Pass and went to the Grid Guide to set up a new one.

There it is; 5:00pm, channel 508, "News 8 at 5".
Hit the record button -- No SEASON PASS option.
But there is a "Future Episodes" (or some other phrase) that, when selected, does indeed show it airing every weeknight.

I tried also setting up the SP via "Search," but that doesn't work either.

What's up with this?

try setting up a one-time recording and then go to the To Do List and see if you can set an SP from there.

If the guide indicates (incorrectly) that the program is a special instead of a series, then you won't have the season pass option.

If that's the case you should at least be able to set up an autorecording wishlist that'd work to grab this program.
