    FYI, my old Onepass did not pick up the new episodes starting 2/1. Had to delete and recreate it.

    Same here ... odd. I wonder if the SeriesID changed or something?

    I caught the "Expanded" special, but not this. It appears to be a double-episode launch... I wonder if SyFy has it scheduled as a one-off rather than as part of the series. I'm keeping the old SP and I suppose we'll see what happens when single-episode airings come up.

    Mine isn't picking up this, or the second episode of The Magicians which airs that night as well. The Magicians season premiere on 1/25 is set to record properly.

    Thanks Rovi!

    All I had to do is just modify my existing Season Pass for The Expanse (which was already set to record "Everything" - yet didn't schedule the second season premiere <rolleyes>). I did switch The Magicians to "Everything" and now it's being picked up (over and over again). Then I switched both back to "New & repeats" and it all still looks okay.

    Looking at the descriptions of the episodes on 2/1, there appears to be no data and the production art is missing. Tomorrow's episode of Magicians has both a description and production art. This seems like what was going on with Sleepy Hollow and Vikings... for some reason, the episode is not associated with the series.

    I created new One Passes for "The Magicians" and "The Expanse" episodes that weren't going to record. Oddly enough, for "The Expanse" I had to set "New & Repeats" to get them to record but not for "The Magicians". Since these episodes are lacking data it is possible in the next few days the situation will be corrected, but I'm keeping the new One Passes just in case.

    Interesting. My new 1Ps for those episodes are "New episodes" and both work.

    My old One Pass for "Expanse", which worked last season, is now picking up only the "Expanse: Expanded" preview show, which has series ID SH0334289063. Now I have four One Passes for "Expanse" but still only two for "Magicians".

    My question is, what does TiVo have against "The Expanse"?

    I had noticed this too and was going to send it to Margret with a data issue subject line. I couldn't believe the number of different series ID's for the Expanse.

    So I did confirm that I was seeing the same thing and coming up with the same Series ID's for these 2 shows and forwarded it on to Margret. Thanks for doing most of the "hard" work. :)

    I literally don't understand how they could screw up the Series IDs for The Expanse this badly.

    I think the only resort that might get resolution of their consistent issues is by publicly shaming (Twitter, FaceBook, etc).

    Mainly because the typical viewer doesn't care.

    tvguide.com now has the correct info. I suspect we'll also have it before Wednesday. There might still be a problem with them showing the first two eps as one and then showing them separately in later airings.

    Although that's not a bug, it's a feature...i.e., it always happens, because technically the double episode is different than the single episodes.

    I've been watching this thread and keep checking that I'm getting all of the Expanse episodes. Yesterday I noticed when I searched for "The Expanse" there were 3 listings. One for the Extended episode and one each for the first and second episodes. Each one took a separate one pass.

    I wonder if this will continue and we'll have to set up a one pass for each episode.

    I just forced a service connection which updated the guide data to February 10th and it looks like this issue is fixed now for the Expanse and the Magicians with the original 1P (I did not recreate mine for the new SeriesId's that were showing up.).
