    Well, Battlebots returns tonight on Discovery, but the guide data means my SeasonPass does not recognize it.

    Tonight's episode is listed as "Battlebots on Science" which is a DIFFERENT show (in my mind). It is a special elimination tournament, kinda like "Star Salvation" on Food Network, in which 8 weaker bots play for a single spot in the main field of 16.

    Just make a manual recording, don't bother with a OnePass. Next week looks like it's back to normal.

    I use a Wish List for Battlebots...and it did pick up tonight's episode.

    I mentioned this yesterday in the Battlebots thread - Battlebots is back!

    My Battlebots OnePass obviously isn't picking up tonight's, but it also isn't picking up the 8/10 show, even though the name is back to just Battlebots. I created a new OnePass.

    This is getting pathetic. Three OnePasses for one show. I wish they'd switch back to Gracenote.

    I really should go through my OnePass Manager to see which of my series has the most OnePasses.

    I threw in the towel, deleted my three OnePasses, and created a Battlebots title wishlist. It picked up last night's and has next Friday's scheduled too.

    I don’t know who is screwing this up, but I don’t think I’m missing anything yet. It looks like Discovery is just randomly moving eps around between the Discovery Channel and Science Channel. Then TiVo just randomly names them.
