    If this year is anything like last year, keep a close eye on your One Passes for 2018. Last year, for the first couple weeks of the year, a LOT of shows with new episodes airing in the beginning of 2017 were tagged with the right day/month, but with a 2016 year. I'm anticipating the same happening this year, where new episodes in 2018 are tagged with a 2017 date, and not picked up as "new" by the TiVo. Watch your To Do Lists so you don't miss anything.

    I've already found a couple. Might help if people post any they find here... (these are on TiVo via Comcast)

    1) New FOX show LA -> Vegas. The pilot on Jan 2 records correctly. The 2nd episode on 1/9/18 is marked with an OAD of 1/9/17, and does not record without a manual override.

    2) New Showtime series called "The Chi", premieres on Sunday Jan 7. For some forking reason, the OAD is 2012 :eek:. The OnePass is accepted, but nothing records without changing the "New" setting to "Repeats". Or a manual override.

    FWIW, I also have DirecTV. Not. A. Single. Problem.

    Any clue why the name has changed? Nielsen has it listed as LA to Vegas. Some problem with graphics? TiVo still has the ->, but Search can't use that. Just entering Vegas does find it. So far the other new Fox show, 9-1-1 has not changed its name.

    FWIW, LA -> Vegas says 2018. Must’ve fixed it.

    Location, location, location. My guide still says 1/9/2017. Tvguide.com doesn't even have listings for that day.

    Based upon this thread, I looked and found it even worse on Comcast Arlington VA. Instead of The Chi, Showtime 1/7 shows the 2011 broadcast series The Chicago Code.

    Thanks for the heads up. My TiVo wasn't going to record it, and sure enough, it had a January, 2017 date.

    Yep that's what the guide on my Premiere shows for it. I burst out laughing when I saw that a few days ago. Really Tivo?

    I went back and looked, and that's what mine has too (I posted 2012, but it's 2011). Changing it to "Repeats" will let it record, but the bigger danger is TiVo will realize the error at some point, and change to the proper Series ID. At which point NOTHING will record. And I have no idea if I'll be home before then to reset it.

    Their guide people really do suck. :mad:

    That does indeed suck. At least the premium channels tend to rerun their series multiple times, so you could possibly catch it later in the week.

    i guess it could have been worse (better?), at least they didn't confuse these with hard-core gay porn titles :D :

    I've got DirecTV where I am, so I'll still get it.

    I usually record everything I watch in two places. It's hell being addicted to TV.

    Sorry but I did submit a lineup correction to TiVo so there is a chance for it to be corrected. You might want to create a manual recording for that block or a wishlist. The Chi does show up when searching so choosing “create a wishlist for THE CHI” on the search screen is easier.

    My LA/Vegas isn't fixed, but today's connection hasn't run yet. I don't have a Pass for this yet, though, as I had only manually scheduled S01, E01 so far but am now keeping an eye on that.

    Thanks so much for the heads up! What a shock, eh? :rolleyes: It's just a good thing I have a lot of time on my hands now to babysit all my shows, Passes, the freaking Tivo clock, etc etc etc.

    I kind of cruised through the 3 networks and Fox tv for my shows for the next week and all seem fine for having the right year on the episodes. I don't know if I'm up to cruising through all of the cable channels and Premium cable, but I don't have much else to do today, so what the heck. I'm sure my check from Rivo, for all the work I do, will arrive any day now as it is most assuredly 'in the mail'.

    Remember when Tivo was about setting things up and then it does its work? Ah, yes - memories. Remember when you didn't have to remember when shows were on because Tivo took care of that for you? *sigh*

    Yeah, this is confusing me. I set out a while back to get a pass on 'The Chi' and couldn't find it, even after a spot after a show I was watching mentioned it and when it was set to air. Then I noticed that 'The Chicago Code' and was wondering if it is the same thing. At this point I'm just going to wait it out, I guess.
