    While the subject episode has the correct Season(10) & Episode(5), it is for the original series, so will not be recorded by a 1P/SP for the series that started in 2006.

    As usual, Screener has it right.

    Well I just tweet-shamed Tivo - it seems like the only way nowadays to get their attention to fix these recurring guide data issues. Filling in the lineup report form is a joke - getting a response weeks later after the problem doesn't exist anymore.

    It was still shoing wrong for me as well so I forced a connection and it is correct now. Still showing data for the wrong "Red Dragon" movie on 5/14 though.

    Mine is still wrong in my to do list on my iphone but I will check when i get home.

    However, Tivo wins in the end. I noticed the midnight showing is right and Tivo decided to record it.

    Doctor Who on 5/27 is affected by the same bug. Again. Seriously, it seems like TiVo just doesn't care anymore.

    That is at the edge of the listings. Mine don't go beyond 5/27 at 3 pm yet.

    Listings at the edge usually get updated. Your post is alarmist.

    No, it's not alarmist. That episode of Dr Who has a different seriesId. Also, the programs after it that I watch -- Class and Graham Norton -- are properly scheduled.

    You are 100% correct. They made the same stupid error that I reported initially - the information is for the original series.

    I submitted a lineup fix request for the original broken listing and they fixed it a few days later (got a "how did we do email"). I don't feel like submitting one for this one.

    It happened before and was corrected days before the airing.

    The most important part of that is "It happened before". The exact same, stupid error. There is no guarantee that it will be fixed this time.

    "Genius" is still messed up, and the next episode airs tomorrow.

    Especially since they don't magically fix themselves. They only get fixed if someone complains about it.

    Genius got fixed.

    I agree that the screw ups are disconcerting but freaking out two weeks out is not making it any better.
