    The regular time slot episode tonight is incorrectly listed as a rerun from two weeks ago. It's a new episode. The next showing a couple of hours later is correctly labelled new with the correct program information. As it stands OnePasses set to new only will record the new episode a couple of hours later than it otherwise would.

    Thanks for the heads up. My guide shows the same thing. At least it did pick up the latter airing. I never watch until the next day, so I'm cool with that. :)

    Guide data, in general, has been positively horrid again lately. :(

    Yep the 10 pm showing is wrong. The 12 am repeat is correct though. That was scheduled on my box.

    It did something similar last week too, at least for me. I didn't follow through researching it, just watched the 12am repeat the next day.

    Bill Maher is showing as a rerun again but is supposed to be new.

    Thanks, Ed! I just checked and mine shows that it is recording one of the Saturday (tomorrow) airings. Odd, that, as it usually picks up the Fri 7pm on one of the zillion HBO channels.

    Cheers! :)

    Gracenote indicates tonight as "Live".

    Two weeks ago I got a later repeat. Last week, I was checking for it and was going to set it manually but the Friday download corrected it. This week shows last week repeating. As of today, it isn't recording for me as TiVo thinks it is a repeat.

    The 10 eastern showing this week is listed as a rerun of last week’s episode. The 11:30 showing is listed as a new episode.

    Rovi killed quality control and accuracy after the acquisition. How hard is it to get this right?

    As of today, next week's episode is listed correctly with the 10pm showing and recording as new.

    My TE4 guide has the correct new episode at 10pm and the repeat at 11:30. My TE3 guide has last week at 10pm and the correct episode at 11:30pm. It should record if the 1P is set to new only.

    Both had service connections about 9am.

    Someone forgot to let TiVo know that Maher isn’t on tonight (May 15, 2020).

    It's trying to make up for the weeks that it didn't schedule it.

    Only TE4 had the correct program. TE3 isn't doing updates this weekend.

    Tonight’s episode isn’t listed as new or rerun and has last Friday’s date on the episode. It does have the proper season and episode number in the information.

    I wonder if TiVo is actively doing this to annoy people and get them to switch from older devices and going to TE4.

    I don't think TiVo knows what they are doing. TE4's guide has it showing with a "new" icon, no "R", yet a date of 5/15. Gracenote is correct.
