    If CBS is pushing the season a week, they haven't sent new schedules out yet. I just checked the Guide here and the 15th is showing new episodes for NCIS (E8, not E7), Bull (E7, not E6) and NCIS: New Orleans (E7, not E6). The Guide for Nov 9 is showing new episodes for Blindspot (E8, not E7), Criminal Minds (E6, not E5) and Chicago PD on NBC (E7, not E6). I don't record it, but I've heard that L&O:SVU on NBC was also a rerun because of Game 7.

    Don't trust the guide. I shouldn't have to say that. :D

    Since you mentioned Bull, I noted that the next new program is missing its OAD and episode number.

    I noticed that too on Bull. I should have added that the episodes are scheduled to record at the moment, but that might change once the Guide is updated if they intend to broadcast the episodes in sequence. I wasn't suggesting that the Guide was listing the episodes that WILL be broadcast, if that was your point.

    No point implied, sorry. I appreciate your post on episode numbers also. Thanks.

    No need to be sorry, Joe, I wasn't offended. I was just trying to figure out what you meant when you said I shouldn't trust the Guide, that's all. Right now, if the Guide stays as it is, the episodes will get recorded. My guess is the Guide will get updated before the 15th and then those episodes will no longer be marked to be recorded, so I'll have to manually set them to record whenever the Guide is updated. I just didn't want anyone to look at the To Do List, see that they were marked to record and think everything was okay.

    I wouldn't trust the guide right now. That episode of Bull, while it's in my To Do List as new, I can't find it if I search since my 1P is set to New Only. I'm going to leave it, but I have set it to record on my other TiVo. I do that a lot. This whole forum reminds me of the minefield our guides have become. Even today I saw a difference between tvguide.com and tv.com. I still check Screener (zap2it) as I have for a long time.

    I just canceled the episode of NOVA scheduled to air on 11/16. There's another airing later that night. We'll see if TiVo now decides to record that one (I bet it doesn't!).
    FWIW, that episode of Blindspot was fake-recorded on my TiVo on Wednesday (I actually got an episode of L&O:SVU). Today, next week's original episode was replaced in the Guide Data by what should have aired this week, and it's set to record, even though it "already recorded." This fits with what I've seen the past couple of years. It looks like TiVo has been rejiggering the episode information for preempted episodes, and that the Rovi takeover hasn't changed that.

    Yeah, Rob, I noticed that too. However, the Guide here still shows S2:E9 scheduled, perhaps it will change tonight when the Guide data gets updated. If it does, I'm assuming it won't be marked to record, but since you say yours is, then it should be. What does your Guide say for the others mentioned?

    I just connected to the service, and my guide still shows S2E9 of Blindspot airing on 11/9, and it's set to be recorded by my 1P. Wonder why you(Rob) have updated, correct guide data and mine is still incorrect? S2E8 was the episode my TiVo thinks it recorded on 11/2, but like you, got a repeat of L&O:SVU instead. I hope when I eventually get updated guide data, it is set to record.

    Rob, your other issue... cancelling episodes, etc... I wonder if it has anything to do with it being PBS.

    That has always been my experience, no matter the network.

    And of course it shouldn't make any difference...a series is a series, and the software should handle them all the same.

    I just forced a connection. CBS and NBC for Tuesday and Wednesday prime time are pretty screwed up. I think I'll wait a while.

    I used to get double recordings of Downton Abbey and The This Old House Hour on PBS, but now I only get double/triple recordings of The O'Reilly Factor on FNC.

    We're not talking about double recordings; we're talking about canceling one airing and the TiVo picking up another. That never happens for me, but apparently it does for some people.

    I know that, Rob. I was just saying that double recording is the only problem I've had with PBS in response to the suggestion that it had something to do with PBS.

    Just did another connect, and everything is fixed! The guide data is now correct... and my TiVo is set to record all it should. No action necessary on my part. Criminal minds, Blindspot, etc, all look good.

    Rob, no need, I should have worded it better. :)

    Checking this morning, there are no errors, but there are several missing season & episode numbers, a few missing OAD. My next connection is around noon. I'll check again.
