    I just bought an Elite. I'm transferring shows from my Premiere over to the Elite. Some of the shows that are no longer on are still grouping, but the folder has no name. It just has the folder icon and the number of episodes. The weird thing is the folder is in the proper position alphabetically, so obviously it knows the name it's just not displaying it. I did the same thing when I bought the Premiere and it worked fine. Which surprised me at the time because on the old S2/S3 units if a show was no longer on it didn't even group. But this time they're grouping, but you just can't tell what the show actually is.

    Anyway to fix this?

    Mine did the same thing when I went from my s3 thdxl to premiere. The folder title fixed itself when the show recorded a new episode and added it to the group.

    OK so I was trying to figure out a way to fix this using transfers from a PC, none of which worked. Then in a last ditch effort I switched to the HDUI just to see what it would do. It actually shows the folder names correctly. So apparently this is only a problem for the SDUI. :(

    These are shows that are no longer on, or were one off mini-series, so they are never going to appear in the guide again so I can record a new episode. So now I'm stuck with like 6 folders in now playing that are just a number with no name. :(

    Same thing I see. If the show is not currently in the premiers guide when you transfer them it won't name the folder.
