    As long as you had no conflict that prevented the recording of the first showing or the correct data made it to your TiVo in time.

    Heads up.

    I noticed today that my Series 2 did not have next weeks (3/8) The Expanse in it's todo list. It's in the guide (including the name of the episode), just not scheduled to record.

    My Roamio has that episode scheduled to record as part of a OP. However, my Roamio still has two OPs leftover from the strangeness that occurred with the first double episode of this season.

    I don't know why the 3/8 episode would be any different. I can kind of see why first double episode is different, not that I like the result, but this looks like a ROE (regular old episode). It's possible it would have fixed itself, but I already set it to manually record so I won't find out.

    Same here but I do note that both it and "The Magicians" episodes for that day are missing season and episode numbers in the guide.

    Seeing the same thing here. The 3/1 episode is scheduled to record, but 3/8 isn't even though when viewed through the Guide it shows as new and has an OAD of 3/8/17.

    Just forced a connection and things seem to be ok now. I think they have someone manually checking certain problematic shows week-to-week. At some point, Rovi is going to be a giant mechanical turk.

    And things are messed up again for ep 12 and ep 13. The earlier press releases said they've be broadcast at the regular time 4/12 10PM and 4/19 10PM. Syfy's website says Deals From the Darkside will be broadcast 4/12 10PM and What Lies Beneath will be broadcast 4/19 10PM. Apparently, ep 12 will be broadcast instead 4/17/2017 5:00 AM. I suppose the final ep will be broadcast 4/24/2017 5:00 AM, though the TiVo guide shows it in its normal time. I'm going to set up manual recordings for both times just to be safe.

    Given that they renewed the show for a third season already, why are they messing with its schedule so much?

    Indeed. Gracenote has the correct schedule:

    TV Listings Grid, TV Guide and TV Schedule, Where to Watch TV Shows - Screener

    SyFy's website developers must be drawing on a Rovi source rather than from internal data directly.

    Everything is now as it should be for both 4/12 and 4/19...

    I take that back. Another connection brought corrected guide date. However, The Expanse episode that is scheduled has a seriesId of SH0334289063 and the original 1P has a seriesId of SH0366532587. A recording will not be scheduled automatically.

    The promised seriesId fix is not in yet, apparently, or not working.
