    There are two one-hour episodes for the start of the new season, tonight.

    Last time I saw, my Tivo had them both scheduled to record on my Pass. Today I happened by the guide data and saw that the second hour was no longer recording.

    Who knows what stupid guide data snafu is happening there, but it DOES show them both as 'new' with today as the OAD.

    Just a heads up to check and make sure both hours record.

    Thanks for the warning. Just checked and so far my TiVos are still scheduled to record both eps. But I'll keep an eye on it.

    Mine went from two one hour episodes to one two hour episode in the last day or so.

    Oh wow. That's interesting. Mine had the two separate hours all along but for some idiotic reason it unchecked that second hour. My connections of late have been of the practically worthless early morning variety. Today's was also early morning and I believe that was when it changed to uncheck that second hour that my Pass had checked.

    My latest update left it as two separate episodes. I never saw the single two hour episode version.

    I just got an update. Still one two hour episode.

    The description did update to indicate it is two in one.

    I don't get why it's not universal. About an hour ago I made a connection to see if there were any guide data updates and nothing changed, nothing was added. I figured 4pm PST was late enough in the day for it to update the guide data. I guess that's what I get for doing my own thinking. ;)

    Strange ... late afternoon (after my last connection), the guide/to do list showed that my 1P picked up both 1 hour episodes and they had double checks for each. Now they have a double check (indicates 1P recording) for the 1st episode and a single check (indicates manual recording) for the 2nd episode. Still listed as two 1 hour episodes.

    Edit: I think I know why it's like that. I added 3 minutes to the end of the recording, so I assume that's what changed it to manual.

    Exactly! I do an after-the-fact revision, such as padding, on shows from time to time and it always changes it to a single check.
