    Anyone else seeing this? I've noticed a couple of shows like this.

    For example, Gold Rush has E1, and unnumbered espisode for E2, no E3, two different E4s (neither of which is E3), etc

    I am not sure it is Comcast's or TiVo's fault (although you should report the guide issues to TiVo so they can follow it up), as the series has some strange numbering, in particular a "special" which aired on the same day as E3 (which may logically be E4, but of course there is a real E4, so what should they (the guide provider) do?).

    Unfortunately It's Tivos fault. I have the Roamio Pro next to a X1 DVR and I have yet to see an error on the Xfinity guide.

    One needs to differentiate between the TiVo as a consumer of guide services (the STB side of the house previously known as TiVo), and TiVo the guide provider (the side of the house previously part of the company previously known as RoVi). Just because they operate under the same corporate name these days does not mean they are one and the same and are operated as one fully integrated company, they still have their various divisional responsibilities.

    My guess would be others that use the Rovi guide encountered equivalent issues (and to comment to Rey, Comcast uses Gracenote guide, so differences are not exactly uncommon). There is a different discussion floating around regarding the quality of the Rovi guide service.

    lots of tivo guide data has been messed up like this since the changeover to rovi data. heck, I have old episodes downloaded off my tivo then a show rerecords (usually documentaries on PBS, one of the few types of shows I record reruns since they _likely_ aren't edited down further), and they have different episode #s!

    recent shows often have problems like mentioned above, episode #s off too..
