    The 6/15 episode of Mythbusters (this Wednesday) is not being caught by my Season Pass for the show. I had to schedule it while browsing the channel listing.

    The title of the show is MythBusters Dirty Dozen: "Planes, Trains, & Automobiles".

    I noticed ZAP2it shows no real description for the show either, I wonder if Tribunes data was indicating this was not a first run episode.

    Thanks for the post. My season pass didn't catch it either. I have a ARWL set up to catch Mythbuster specials and appearances on other shows by the cast and it caught it.

    Doing a search for "Mythbusters" on tivo.com under "Find TV Show" comes up with two results..."Mythbusters" with all the old episodes and "Mythbusters Dirty Dozen" that only has the episode "Planes, Trains, & Automobiles" listed. strange

    ONTARIO,...
    considering Zap2it get its programing from the same source as TiVo thats not so suprising...

    But its probably human error as usual...

    I had to do a manual recording as well, though since they can be issued over the web now it's not nearly as annoying as having to track it down and do it manually on the box. It's still a pain that they messed up the guide data again.

    I still don't think I've seen the last episode they screwed up the guide data for.

    It's not human error, it's listed as a different show. This sounds like a clip show.

    No big deal - it's just a clip show - their 12 favorite plane/train/automobile myths all condensed with a little back story added. Nothing new really.

    I liked the backstory bits, but they were probably only 5-6 minutes of the episode.

    Cool, clip shows are yet another reason for having a Tivo.. FF through the old bits, and watch the new bits. (Though some things, like Survivor 'clip shows' have interweaved them so closely that it's not really worth trying to ff through the old stuff.)

    No worries. It comes on again next Wednesday. Just set a manual recording for it then. It comes on right before the new episode.
