    I'm trying to set my Tivo to record the game today and it's still not showing up on the schedule. If I set my Tivo to record all those stupid sitcoms TBS shows in the late afternoon, will it catch the game? Any idea how I can communicate the issue to Tivo to get this fixed?

    Do a manual recording for the time period.

    Is that something I can do from the app? I am at work, which is why I need to record it.

    Just did an online chat with a Tivo guy and he said to just set it to record all the sitcoms that are scheduled and it will record whatever is televised (i.e., the game). Hope he's right.

    Until an hour ago even zap2it didn't have it listed. Only titantv.com was correct.

    Why wouldn't he be right? It's not as if the Tivo will determine you requested Sitcom A be recorded and it's really a baseball game and then refuse to record it.

    It would be wrong if they fix the guide and replace the sitcoms with the game. Sitcoms won't record if the game is in the guide. Game won't record if you didn't schedule it.

    Best approach is to do a manual recording for the expected duration of the game.

    The list of how it could be wrong are almost endless. The advice the OP got from Tivo was correct.

    If you're paranoid Tivo won't add the games, or will, create a manual recording and get on with life.
