Recovery from Recently Deleted folder changed recording title/description

Today someone in my house accidentally deleted the infamous THX Optimizer recording:

This person happens to be used to DVRs and STBs where Clear/Exit means clear/exit the menu to display full screen video, not delete the current menu selection if a recording is highlighted, hence the very easy one touch mistake.

Anyway, I immediately went to recover the recording from the Recently Deleted folder. I found it there, still properly titled "THX Optimizer", selected it, and recovered it. However, when I went back to the My Shows folder I was surprised to not see THX Optimizer listed. Come to find out, it was retitled “Rec: 2:00pm” and had lost the description text as well (“Description not available.” string).

The recording still played just fine. I tired deleting and recovering it again, but the mysterious metadata change remained. I deleted and recovered another, regular show, but was not able to reproduce the bug.

Has anyone else seen this bug with a recovered recording, THX Optimizer or otherwise?

Is there any way to directly edit the title and other metadata for recordings on the TiVo? Keep in mind the THX Optimizer can’t be transferred, so getting it to a computer to edit the metadata isn’t an option, nor is copying it from another TiVo that still has the recording with the correct metadata. Of all the recordings to experience this bug it had to be this one.

I have the SAME problem, but the cause was a different route. I went in to change the recording to "Keep until I delete". After completing that change, the title is now just the same as you describe "Rec: 2:00pm". Weird.

This is very strange.

I found my THX Optimizer Video in the Recently Deleted folder a few days ago. Have no idea how it got there. I immediately recovered it.

This posting made me go look, and it now is completely gone.
