    Those appear to be the show times for the non-HD A&E channels. I have not been able to find the schedule for A&D HD on their web site.

    what a mess. My guide data on my series 1 doesn't show part 1 of 2 and 2 of two. It's just the same description for every airing. Makes it look like a single show that's being aired a ton of times. I can't even get an original air date for them.

    Maybe the A&E website will help me make sense out of it all.


    Edit: This doesn't make sense. The two Tuesday night airings listed in my guide data are 4 hours. And the time doesn't match Doug's link. It's almost part one airs tonight, then tomorrow, they air part one and two back to back.

    Weird.

    How can I find part two??

    A&E HD is a simulcast of the analog lineup, just with HD versions, when possible.

    It doesn't look like there is a part two.

    There is a two hour show that is half the series tonight. There is a four hour show that is the full series tomorrow. That is really screwy.

    Hmmm.. I don't have an airing for 8:00 PM (central) on Tuesday. I have one for 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM. 4 hours for each of those. Maybe A&E updated the guide data for my TiVo and it has yet to pick it up??

    not easily... Unless you want to wait until the second night. I guess my best chance is an actual MANUAL recording at 8:00 PM for two hours on Tuesday night.

    WTF is up with A&E?
    I individually chose the 8pm showing of part 1 on 5/26 and the 8pm showing of part 2 on 5/27 to record on my dual tuner. So far part one has recorded on both tuners, so I have two copies of it - how does that happen? When I check the recording history, there is no mention of the 8pm 5/27 airing of part 2 when it should be saying that it is no longer in the guide.

    I originally set up an ARWL on my 540, and like others here, I had to set it to record R&FR and the two 8pm airings were scheduled to record. I just forgot to delete it after deciding to use the DT instead. After seeing that the schedule is screwed up on the DT I checked the 540. Every single airing is scheduled to record even after I changed it to FR only. I checked the recording history and it says that the 8pm 5/27 airing of part 2 which is no longer in the guide, won't record because of the 28 day rule, not because it's not in the guide.

    edit:
    I just noticed that it now has the option for a season pass. It won't do anyone any good though. Like the ARWL, it schedules every airing even when set to FRO.

    My data (via Info button), showed the first airing as part 2 of 2, yet it was actually part 1..... The re-air immediatley after was also wrong, (part 2 of 2, actually part 1).

    Tonight's part 2 of 2 was labeled as part 1 of 2...bagged them all and just recording the 4 hour "version"

    My Tivo caught the 2 hour show last night. Like others I guess I am recording the 4 hour block tonight to be on the safe side. Luckily my Tivo is pretty void on recordings this week, and next...

    No, I tell you what was weird. I had Monday night scheduled for 7-9 (CDT) and also Tuesday night for 7-9 (CDT).

    Then TiVo recorded Monday's showing TWICE (at the same time)!!! Tuesday's showing disappeared to be replaced by a 4 hour block.

    So, I've reset TiVo to record it instead. I have no idea what the heck is going on!

    If anyone else figures it out, PLEASE EXPLAIN!!!

    My THD missed last night's airing too ... it looks like it tried to record the same thing on both tuners, but the Recording History says the video signal was not available. :confused:

    I've scheduled the 11pm 4-hour showing tonight.

    That is weird because the program had always been scheduled for and then aired from 8-10 in that time zone.

    My COX HD-DVR was set to record part 2 tonight from 8-10 (CDT) however when the block expanded after it was set, it thinks it is recording the entire 4 hour block but it isn't. I can't cancel the supposed recording or otherwise tell it to do anything. So I just told it to record the next 4 hour block and will see what happens.

    I'm glad I checked this thread to see what was up. A&E really screwed something up with this!

    Well, i just discovered my showing tonight was not going to be recorded. I had manually selected 9pm on Mon and Tues and both were set last night. The tivo recorded the one last night but when I check the recording history for tonight, it said that it won't be recording due to a scheduling conflict. I am like what conflict? The only other program scheduled for recording was Mission impossible at 9pm. I told it to record the andromeda strain at 9pm tonight and it did not say anything about any others shows being canceled or clipped because of the recording and it shows that it will record it now. Maybe its because my guide data has the same info for both Monday's and Tuesday's shows. There was no way to tell one was part one and the other was part 2 unless you looked at the extened info section. Maybe this was confusing tivo.

    When I checked my To Do list last evening, the two-hour part 2 of Andromeda was set to record at 9:00 pm. This morning, it wasn't there and my history said, "This program was not recorded because there was an unexpected conflict with another program." But I had no other show anywhere near that slot. What gives?

    maybe our TiVos are infected with the Andromeda Strain?
