    I don't know what the Kids category is officially, but I know TV-MA shouldn't be showing up in there, but it does.
    It's happened in the past with various shows, and it's still happening. Below are some examples of TV-MA and TV-14.

    11:30 PM GEN:LOCK THE ONLY ME I KNOW TV-14 LV
    12:00 AM DR. STONE WEAPONS OF SCIENCE TV-14 LV
    01:00 AM FOOD WARS! THE SUPREME RECETTE TV-MA S
    02:30 AM NARUTO:SHIPPUDEN THE FIRST AND LAST OPPONENT TV-14 V
    03:00 AM MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM THE ORIGIN: ADVENT OF THE RED COMET RED MOBILE SUIT TV-14 LV

    Maybe I can verify these after they record to make sure it's not a typo on the website.

    Some so called "parents" think that's just fine (then they wonder why their kids are such monsters at 13...). I don't use the categories (we have our own collection for our kids) but I'd call Tivo and submit a ticket so at least it's on file (seems like I need some more parenthesis in this post) (ok, that should do it) .

    Good luck!

    In general, the entire Toonami line-up is not for kids, which is why they air after 11pm. Food Wars is for immature adults in the way they explicitly orgasm at the mere taste of a well-prepared dish, and for other suggestions of sexual excitement.

    (I wish I could sort by channel number like my old DVR.)

    Here's another example.

    Gemusetto Machu Picchu episode "Chapter 5b: Foot Fault" which recorded on 7/28/2019 has the Kids category listed when I look at the specific episode. It is rated TV MA LS. That rating is in the actual video itself in the upper-left part of the screen.
    (Listed as Animated, Kids, Comedy, Fantasy.)

    I haven't watched any Gemusetto Machu Picchu episodes yet.

    sort what by channel #? You can have the guide show you by channel #.

    I'm not referring to the guide. If I recall, Comcast legacy DVRs' "Recordings" section (TiVo's equivalent of My Shows) would have a "Sort By" for Name, Date, and Channel Number or something like that.

    I can confirm that Food Wars! episode "The Supreme Recette" shows "TV MA S" in the upper left while playing it.

    Do you have a point or something? You are correct. Why should I care?

    I'm tired of guide inaccuracies, and this is one of them. It may be important for anyone who has kids who doesn't want them watching TV-MA programming.

    Also, because it's a left category, TV-MA series that are incorrectly marked Kids don't show up in the TV Series category (if the Kids category is enabled.)
